Starbug

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

 

This is the 1/72 (ish) resin Starbug from JPG Productions that I bought from Warren of Tyridium Models at SmallSpace last year. I thought some of you might like to see the finished result. Some LEDs and a few other improvements were made along the way. The battery is housed within the base along with a Velleman light chaser circuit, and current is taken into the model through the metal reinforcing rods inside the landing struts.

Thanks for the comments chaps and chapesses.

As far as I'm aware, for Red Dwarf fans this is the only game in town unfortunately. Maybe I'll scratch-build a Smart car Starbug some day. 

I bought this at SmallSpace last year from Warren at Tyridium Models: https://www.tirydiummodels.co.uk/

It's currently showing as out of stock and I don't know if any more will be made, which is why I gritted my teeth, girded my loins, bit the bullet and opened my wallet. Hey, sometimes you just have to. I'm glad I did, although it was a bit of a challenging build at times.

Best of luck if you're looking for one.

Cheers,

Paul

Saw this in the flesh at SmallSpace7, and it's a really striking model. Very nicely done.
