And yet, I saw it when I was like 12-13 years old, so it's part of my long lost youth. Gil Gerard was amiable and Erin Gray was one of my early crushes. I actually met both of them at sci-fi conventions..
The Space Vampire, the Vorvon, has made an impression on me, and judging by how popular he is on YouTube, it has on a lot of people..
I even painted up some 28mm Buck Rogers figures that I converted, in one of my early attempts that I posted on Coolmini. (I'll have to try again now that my skill in painting and converting has improved one of these days).
But I digress..
A cool aspect was the Earth Defence Directorate Thunder Fighter.. It was all white and sleek and still holds up to this day aesthetically.
When I saw the Thunder fighter and the Draconian Marauder on the 3D printing sight Shapeways at the X-Wing scale, I ordered a squad of each to play in X-Wing.
While they were being shipped to me, I jokingly made X-Wing stats for these by lifting the X-Wing and Tie Fighter stats and posted them on Boardgamegeek.
I ordered these over a year and a half ago, and now on this Sunday evening, I painted them up to kill an hour or two..
First things first, I primed them white and brown..
Drilled a hole at the bottom to put them on flight stands (not sure why the 3D printing designer didn't do that since he said it's for X-Wing).
Painted the Thunder Fighter cockpit and afterburners black and shaded in Gray based on online photographs.
and put in the yellow-orange-red bands at the back. I started with yellow first..
The Draconian Marauder was even less of a fuss judging by online pictures..
Some brown and dark brown shading at first..
and put in that white Draconian symbol..
Both are now ready for a quick game..
