Thank you SJF and Model Man, or is it Keyop? Brrrt, Toot!

I watched a few episodes from the show as I went along for ideas and inspiration, and wow, it was not nearly as good as I thought it in 1981!

The ship still looks good though.

Back in the 80's I was a member of a club and they would show a film from one of these shows, I've forgotten the name but we had one guy there that was working with a company that was turning the ones from Japan into ones for the USA channels. There are still being shown too.

Thank you Falcon, that is an interesting interpretation of the design.

I picked up one of the Imai resin kits of the tv version the week that I finished my scratch build. There have been some on Ebay for several years at ridiculous prices, but I scored the resin one for just under a hundred $, from a Japanese comic store.

Even the diecast ones on ebay are stupid prices, I can't understand it.

Here is another shot.

Thank you Dubau, yes the overpriced resin kits that I saw on ebay are what got me started on this.
I used the paper model book that is still available there for the patterns, just had them blown up.

I was just looking up BothP Phoenix pics and wanting to buy a model kit and then you display this fabulous scratch-built model. Awesome job.

I gotta tell you, since seeing this thread the wheels have been turning in my head about doing the same build. I have ordered the book you did to get something to work from. I'd like to do a version with each team member's vehicles in it though. Gotta raise the bar, you know? :)

Guess I'd have to make it bigger. Maybe 1/72 or so.

Love this ship and your build!

Thank you Wander!

Shizman, I'd love to see your build if you go ahead with it. I have a small G-1 plane and Keyop's tank thingy to go along with this, but haven't finished them yet. The Imai resin one comes with a tiny Jason's car, too.
