My spaceships are taking over!!! a post about a few spaceships I picked up last week…

Is it just me?

You are not alone, as a scratch builder of spaceships I have had my collection grow so large that I once gave away at least 6 fleets to interested kids to get them into the hobby.

The numbers are growing again however and I'm currently working on a small fleet of UCM ships from Dropfleet commander, it's currently at 50 ships but remains a small fleet because I'm making them 2/3rds of official size to better align with the rest of my collection.

The ships in your recent collection you were unsure of are old stlye NAC from GZG, but someone has added wings to the larger ships.

Old style NSL, GZG ships, with added wings. Sorry to have to correct you Toaster. Guys same affliction with me. I have a huge amount of both old and new ESU GZG ships. Also a sizable force of Phalon GZG ships. A Savasku GZG fleet, still being painted. A bevy of civilian ships. Star bases and battle stations galore.

Doesn't look too bad to me , but then, I have nine fleets myself.

I have large quantities of B-5 ships both large and small. Most are unpainted. Then there is the old GZG NAC fleet I bought in New Orleans many years ago.

Duh, I meant NSL.

Very nice.

I have made spaceships from all sorts of things -- certain ballpoint pens are my favorites -- but I haven't amassed quite so large a collection.

Thanks guy's I thought it was just me..

I have done a couple of fleets by kit-bashing ( I have been informed that I didn't scratch build them ) an alien bio-fleet and a mechanical reforming fleet! both for Stars & Lasers.


I have also put together a small pirate fleet from weird civilian looking ships and freighters.

And thanks for the update on the NSL fleet.

17 fleets here.

I am on 10 fleets at the moment, so not as bad as I thought… I guess the next question is do you actually use them all?

I only use around 5 on a regular basis, but the rest will get used once I get them painted up and based.
