Cool! Thanks!
So I finally see what is supposed to be on the end of the winch. Kind of a weird concept-- I would've thought there might have been a futurstic piece of space hardware or some car in tow... not a fighter jet. I like the antenna on the box art better than the one on the toy. I wonder if they started out being manufactured straight but had to be changed lest they poke out eyes?

I'm going to drag the box art into Illustrator this weekend and see what I can do about making a repro.

Thanks again!
Scott

Well, here's my 42" Martian War Machine waiting to be hung. It is pretty shiney too. I figured if it is supposed to be an alien metal, I can make it as shiney as I want. In the background you can see an as yet unpainted 4 foot Jupiter 2.


So your a builder too ??????

Well, I built that MWM, which was not hard, and I am finishing up a four foot Jupiter 2. One of my previous careers was museum work, and I have done displays and dioramas for various museums.

I have 2 storage units completely filled up with my sci-fi models, most of which I'll not get to before my eyes go bad.

I've yet to build a robot, though I am researching one now....
