From trailer park kid to hero of the galaxy, Alex Rogan saves Earth and the Star League from the traitorous Xur with help of his pilot, Grig, in their Gunstar. Duncan Scott provides us with his wonderful build of Alex's space fighter.

Excellent work! So nice to see this ship made as a kit as well. I have to admit having a soft spot for this movie.

I always recite the "Greetings Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend...." including cracking the knuckles sometimes when I enter the modeling room (mancave) when I have a heavy project/task to do. I also seem to do it when I am doing any online gaming and about to tackle some great task/quest/mission. I think I still have that movie on vcr.

That is one great looking model

Cheers
