I expect that the Hydra is mastered by the gent on the Ma.K site who has already scratch-built a few similar craft.  His work is top notch if quite expensive.

That's a good question, the "original" with James Arness as the alien "monster" or the remake by John Carpenter that was far closer to the original source material, John W. Campbell's classic "Who Goes There?" (there's some interesting personal history in the inspiration for Campbell's story).

Yes, as a matter of fact, a few days ago I became "teenager-less" when my daughter turned 20. The last day of her being 19 was celebrated by mutual yelling of "You don't understand me" and "Go to your room!". It was our last time to have a father-teenager event, we laughed for a good five minutes afterward!

Monty Python's "Meaning of Life" & that scene led into the musical scene "Every Sperm is Sacred". ;D

Just got back from seeing "Monty Python Live (Mostly)".  A sort-of-live/delayed simulcast from London of the new Monty Python stage show.   That was one of the songs in the show and it's still damned good, even today.    It was fun to see all the old sketches redone, live and despite the occasional fumble such as Eric Idle's moustache coming off in the Nudge, nudgle, wink, wink, sketch (which he handled very well, by simply pausing and fully removing it before continuing).  However what struck was how much they have all aged and in some ways how sad it was that they were still doing the same stuff they'd been doing 25+ years ago.   If you're a fan, its worth seeing, if nothing more for the ad libs.   8)

I might get one so I can build my 1/72 model. Got most of the parts for it already.

Between Fantastic Plastic, Anigrad and Real Space, I've spent likely 5  years of discretionary funds on resin in the last month.


I'm sure it was all a good idea.

Fantastic Plastic Models Re-Release Survey 2017

Over the past few years, we have received dozens of requests (and orders) for many of our "retired" kits. With the exception of our "Star Wars"-related products -- which we can no longer sell due to that pesky 2009 C&D from LucasFilm -- we are happy to bring these classic kits out of retirement...if demand is sufficient to justify the costs of a new production run.

Which retired kits would you like to see back in the Virtual Museum Store? Here's your chance to tell us.

The linked survey below -- which appears on our website -- lists the retired kits we regularly get requests for. Look over the list and vote for your favorite(s). Yes, you can vote for more than one.

http://fantastic-plastic.com/re-release-survey.html

A kit needs at least 50 votes to be considered viable for resurrection. Please, only cast a vote if you are serious about buying the kit within the next 12 months. This is the only way we can make an economically sound decision.

Please submit your choice(s) before June 15, 2017.

Until then...
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

For those with deep pockets, you can always use this as the start of a Stratos 4 "MS" version that's air-launched from under the wing of a B-60.

It would be Greg, taking another one for the team and pathing the way for a near future arrival of an affordable injection moulded kit.

Yeah, I gave up on it a few times in season 1. Probably was not until ep 7 that I could say I was "into it". Looking forward to the rest of S2 & S3.
