Perhaps not as colorful, but here's some resources for the Trek-oriented:

The Starfleet Museum (http://www.starfleet-museum.org/)

Payne's Star Trek models part 1 (http://www.inpayne.com/models/trek/models_trek.html)

Payne's Star Trek models part 2 (http://www.inpayne.com/models/trek/models_trek2.html)

Payne's Star Trek models part 3 (http://www.inpayne.com/models/kitbash/trekpage.html)

He even does Star Trek figures:

Paybne's Star Trek figures (http://www.inpayne.com/models/models_figure_trek.html)

And here's one that has Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, and Space Battleship Yamato:

Starship Schematics database (http://www.shipschematics.net/)

For any figure modellers ... Takuma Nakano's 1/20th 'Shot Down', a knocked-out Ma.K. Melusine 22 and its pilot.

That rifle would make an interesting build.

Liking the nose/fuselage/cockpit section of this one. Bit of a Y-Wing/A-Wing bash... Cockpit extending almost all the way to the nose also looks good.

It brings up excellent possibilities

You can reduce the display size of images with a simple mod to the first part of the image tag, just add a width or height number
(I used 800 as an example):
Base tag:[img]
Modified tag width:[img width=800]
Modified tag height:[img height=800]
The space between img and width or height is important.
Clicking on the image opens it up full size.

I modified your big pic to [img width=1000]

PERMALINK (https://www.facebook.com/groups/26684118243/permalink/10157174940548244/) - in case for when FB messes up the link again  :uuu:

Interesting scale-o-rama possibilities. Bandai 1/144 AT-ST with 1/35 figure

Unmanned infantry support walker? Wouldn't look out of place with a couple modern Marines next to it. Replace walker cockpit with a weapon station with an M240 and some AT-4s?

The size would also look right to make it a manned walker. Sorta like the AT-RT from StarWars.
