I think I’m pretty close on most of the geometry here. Probably need to resculpt the middle engine bar.
Currently being sold on ebay is a display model of a missile, a “Martin ASM.” ASM almost certainly means “Air to Surface Missile,” but otherwise there’s no further info. Seller seems to think it’s related to the Assault Breaker project, but it looks vaguely like a Skybolt-ish air-launched ballistic missile.
I’m looking to take quality screenshots, and I think the online versions of the episodes would make for better image quality than screenshots from the DVD burner I use to record episodes. Fox has the episodes available online shortly after they air, but I can’t figure out how to download them to view them on something better than my dinky netbook.
Last nights episode, for example:
A rather different set of stuff than the recent sales of books, but I’m doing these the same way. I’d prefer to sell these as a single lot, so as always I’m doing a discount. The prices are based on what they seem to be going for on eBay. If you want the lot, let me know via email or comment. Individually these total up to $204; as a lot, I’ll go with $175 plus postage (calculated after I know where they’re going).

Currently on eBay is a nice wind tunnel model set of parts for the Douglas D852. The design is not immediately known to me, but I suspect it’s an early 60’s concept, perhaps a very early TFX (eventually the F-111) or some other variable-sweep fighter. Anyone know?
While looking at something else on eBay, a listing for something rather more interesting came up:
An item currently on eBay:
A display model of…something. A seeker head for some sort of missile, seemingly. Missile defense, perhaps? Or perhaps it’s part of a payload to be fixed to an aircraft, some sort of sensor?
The Blade Runner “Blaster” water pistol I mentioned back in April is now available. When originally announced, it was supposed to cost about $12… and if you’re in Japan, that’s about right. But in the US, it costs about five times as much, at least so far. Numerous copies on eBay, one on Amazon.
Looks reasonably accurate. Not sure about the charging handle on the right side, but I suspect it would only require minimal effort to paint and otherwise dress up this piece into a pretty good replica.
