I agree that the latest Astro Racer styling is very attractive. Dare i describe it as more "sci fi traditional".

Are the instructions for the builds provided in English? I've built 2 ships so far and although they came out good they could have come out better ( and been assembled faster) if i knew what i was doing in advance :)
Customizer,

Hey that's part of the challenge! Although you can run some of the directions for kicks through the google translator. Always a good laugh.

Ha! Tell me about it . I gave up on translating after about 10 minutes. Of course considering that I am making modifications to the builds to suit my personal needs I suppose I shouldn't worry about the instructions being in English much anyway.

Pretty neat small collection. ...congratulations JAN. :)

SOME FUN FACTS: Astro Racers 80 and 58 was designed by kids. Terror Racers was idea of eleven years old boy and Blue Bubbles is project of 9 years old girl. ....I´ve redesigned both ships into useful papermodels.
I have lot´s of ideas for Astro Racers...like in the shape of Nintendo Gameboy console (4 years old ideea) or shape of star destroyer..or Orion 3 from space odysey.......or Impala car from Supernatural movie series :)

For more astro racers stay tuned for Xmas. :)

Jan,

Yes, I would definitely like to assemble the Impala! That would be too cool.. especially from you. I REALLY appreciate all the work that you do with these astro racers. Thanks for all of the hard work you do with these designs.

Very much looking forward to CHRISTmas!

Probably using a picture hosting service, which I am allowing due to the f'd up nature of our situation. ;)

Z - I'm a slow learner :Computer::headbange::headbange::headbange: :hammerhead::hammerhead:and finally did just that as well! I noticed also that if you delete a pic from the file hosting service you delete the pic on this site as well :robot3::frak::robot1: :facepalm: so it is a continuous direct link.

Time to upload pictures directly. I would appreciate if people could update their posts, I know it's a lot of work, but the thread remains whole. An account gets closed, then there a huge gap in the thread.

This all looks so marketable to me. you might consider approaching board game or other game publishers. You really have something and a brilliant imagination. ;)

Very clean cuts!thumbsupthumbsup Inspirational!:Drinks::Drinks::Drinks: You're a credit to Jan Rukr (the designer of these models)!:King:

Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Additionally, your work on the Tie Racer is good as well.

If there is anything I would like to add - could you please show us the "warts and all method" of your building? Sometimes we all need a little "direction" from time even though some of us have done this a while, we always love to see new techniques - especially when the results are well done. The greater community grows from that as well. Just a thought.
