Microcosim

These are some of the tiniest fighters I have ever modeled. Just thought I’d share them with you in their incomplete, unpainted form. No, they were not formed from soap. Just plastic stock.

The green Interceptor model was built by me when I was a teenager. It was only the second scratch built plastic model I’d ever built. Plastic was expensive back then when you were just a kid, so most of my models were built from cardboard. My to best friends and I formed a production company and made 8 mm films. Our model shop was called Microcosim or Little Universe. Our first plastic model was a larger version of the Interceptor. I think it was about 1/144 scale. I wish I had that model. It even had a tiny red LED inside it. I’ll likely build it again someday in 1/72 scale.
