Lockheed two-stage space liner, 1964. Horizontal launch, 168 feet long and 95 wing span (51×29m), 450t launch weight. "Each [stage] is estimated to have a life of up to 500 missions" and "primarily to exchange space station crews, transport scientific teams, and ship supplies".

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

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

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]

Found in the Kow Yokoyama Facebook group (LINK!):



PERMALINK - 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.
