Alien99 / Jan,New group of the Astro Racers (after one year of waiting are here
and two winners of Astro Racers 2015 - and my rebuild of their ideas for the ABC magazine.
enjoy ...Merry XMAS & Happy New Year 2016
Dented Rick,Alien99, is there any way I can get these for the set? I cannot find them on the website anymore for download, and missed the chance to download them when they were released....Thanks either way
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the creator of the Astro Racers as well. There have been many dioramas and models that I have come across online that have been interesting but the Astro Racers are the only models that have been appealing enough to make me actually build them. I've applied the builds to different interest of mine and I'm more excited with each model built.
If there is anyway I can help further the Astro Racers theme and / or production of models please let me know .
Now.....if someone would design an opening canopy for each of the Astro Racers I'd be over the moon. I'm "back engineering" that feature with each model.
Customizer,I'm actually doing that right now in the early morning (...seats are done . I'm finishing the control panel).
I'd say I'm currently addicted to astro racer modification.
Customizer,I'm working on my second racer ( Scarabeus). I finished the Black Lamborghini inspired racer already. I've only been building paper models for roughly 1 month (maybe closer to 2 months now). The first model was an Aliens inspired APC type vehicle.
The cockpit designs are being created by the seat of my pants physically as opposed to digitally or on a piece of paper in advance. I've altered the scale of the vehicles to better suit my preference and also a few other changes so the seating area wont be able to be used by anyone else unless they rescale and modify exactly as i did
Are you going to use a paper made canopy or an alternative material?
The stock length is about 7 in or about 18 cm.Sky Seeker how long is the "stock" scale of the Lightjet?
I thought about making the canopy transparent as well (still might ...) so i look forward to seeing your ship . Jan has another ship on the ABC site that isn't shown on his personal website. It is IMPRESSIVE and large . It also boast magnet connectivity much like the old Starcom toy line from the 80's
