Nice "found stuff" build! :thumbsup:

What's the base for construction? :unsure:

I can see two (grenade?) case halves, a couple of (Teller?) mines, 6 anchors & a couple of marker pen lids with wheels attached as the engines.

That's wicked! I like that a lot. Is the body made up of 2 sandwiched lower trench plates from the Revell Venator?

Was just thinking that, lol!

I blame the fact that I'm watching it on Amazon Prime and I'm in the middle of Season 2, and working on Starfury nose art in MS Paint...

Starship Modeller used to do sheets of transfers but I've no idea if they're still available.

Just checked - only 2 types left, both "low stock".

Does me no good without a Starfury to put them on, and most are out of my price range.

But it (the Revell 1/72 Starfury) would make a fantastic birthday gift.

Revell should really re-pop the Starfury: even if none of their distributors took it and they only sold it direct through their website, it would still fly off the shelves.
