Yes, it would be but I know what my wife would say and it wouldn't be positive. :wink:

It is a very nice piece of terrain but its a damn expensive kit and then you have the OTT shipping costs on top, its far to rich for me...

I'm sure the quality is good... I have bought some of his stuff in the past. But that is too expensive I can't justify paying 70.00+ his crazy shipping to get something like that. I am working on something that I may have 15 bucks in it is smaller that I think looks alot better and was more fun to make and just brainstorm doing... pics coming soon...lol

Just waiting on a couple of bits from Old Crow and some 99 cent jewlery from ebay...lol and I think it will be done unless I come across something else to change or add on. I was going to order from GZG but I didn't like the way the shipping worked. I will try them in the future but I don't like surprises...lol

I'm the one that had these made by Brian at Xmarx. I got the first one gratis, and I plan to get more when I get an area large enough to build my own static display.

$70 is a bit pricey, and was actually more than he was projecting, initially. But, if you're looking for a really nice center piece to a static display, and your scratch building skills are not something you want to show others, then this is well worth the cash.

Do you have some more eye-candy of this beauty?

All I've got are the pictures that Brian snapped of the thing, which I got from Xmarx.com. This is yet one more project that I don't have time to work on. I managed to do a little of the trim work to get the flashing removed, and I haven't touched it since.

I was getting the N scale mech hanger kits made for Gundam to fill the mech hangar role. They were a bit big but they worked nicely and at about $10 for each kit I could get a much bigger and more varied hangar bay for $70. I also got some cranes and an ammo loader vehicle in the kits.

These may be going up for sale in the near future, I certainly do not need them any more. :cry:
