Awesome!

Where did the Speeeders and A-Wings come from.

Is the Speeder the RetroSF/RetroKits one?

The A-Wings seem more appropriate size wise than the Bandai ones
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Thanks Blake - yes the speeder is the RetroSF (orange stripe) and the As are the little bandai box kits (not the "1/72" one). I think its all about the "scale" of the pilot...

Wow, those are the "1/144" A-WIngs!

I knew they were oversized but did not realize how much. They seem to fit in well enough

Very cool! Love the landed B-Wing. Would like to see better pictures of the landing gear on that thing.

Cool work, the fighters look very good, only the floor is still a little too clean for me :oops:
have you been using characters from green strawberry?
(i think i recognize the service ramp) what are the details of the figures?
of on the side of green strawberry the details look a bit blurred

Thanks
Joerg

so the GS figures are crap as far as detail goes...the rest are the old trusty Hasegawa ground crews. And yeah, the floor will get it's treatment when the time comes. got a ton of extra bits to add in once I figure out the positioning of the ships. I'm slowly chipping away at it - while at the same time, I've started on a 1/144 set up with a couple of freighters (Ebon Hawk, XS light, and a fuel tanker) being escorted by some Xs and Ys, just waiting on the decals for the fighters to arrive from Nic.

The landing gear on the B-wing is some leftover legs from the oversized Bandai "1/72" A wing, I just cut out a few panels and scratched out some room for the landing bay.

as far as the GS-figures are concerned, my impression didn't fool me... thanks
yes indeed the good old groud crews :D
i am looking forward to new pictures (also the 1/144 line-up) ;)
you could do me a big favor...
can you measure the length and width of the 1/144 a-wing?
i got another RB26 A-Wing here, maybe they'll match

Thanks a lot
