I've just finished my second model from the fantastic X-Bomber/Star Fleet show from the 80s, the Imperial Astrofighter. So here it is in action.

Commander Makara orders an attack on the X-Bomber in an attempt to capture F-01, but Dr. Benn and the rest of the X-Bomber crew are ready for the Imperial Alliance.

Glad you like it my friend :D

Yep, Barry's turret if you remember from the show. Though nowadays I feel that a little odd giving the seating arrangement of the crew. It'd make more sense for Shiro to use the port turret giving his proximity to it.

Well that's two of the key ships down with five more to go since, like I told you, I'm not doing The Skull, guess which one is next? I've already made a start on it. Little clue it's not Big Red. ;)

More Star Fleet action to come. :D

Superb!

Like to see you do the fighters and the freighter....

I take it you mean the EDF fighters and cargo ships?

If so then I guess I could do them, but they're not key ships from the series. Who knows I might as well make some of the lesser seen craft too.

Well we'll see how we go. Originally I only started this as an attempt to create X-Bomber to look at the feasibility of making a physical model kit.

Wouldn't it? Imagine an actually model of X-Bomber sat on your desk or shelf. Maybe even with Mini Dai-X to scale.

I think there's a few folks out there that would like one. I just have to figure out a way to pay for the master model to be produced.
