  1. Resin Figures (1350015) 1:350 GreenStrawberry While these little folks aren’t strictly Sci-Fi, I suspect that they were intended to be placed in Star Trek kits that have visible bays or arboretums, at least initially. That doesn’t stop you from using them anywhere that their scale would permit, even going as far as a Gulliver’s Travels diorama! The set arrives in a small box, which is why it got side-tracked for a while (sorry about that!), and inside is a plastic bag that has been heat-sealed into four quadrants, each one containing a casting block of figures.
  2. Star Wars Venator Class Lighting Kit (FX02 for Revell) 1:2274 GreenStrawberry One of the coolest ships from the Star Wars Prequels (IMHO) was the Republic Star Destroyer, having a definite Star Destroyer vibe, and taking quite a big part in the films, carrying Clone Troopers and their equipment into battle. The Revell kit has been around since 2005, and was last re-popped in 2016, so there are doubtless plenty of them languishing in stashes around the world just waiting for these wonderful upgrades. We recently reviewed the detail upgrade sets that GreenStrawber
  3. Star Wars Star Destroyer Engine Bells & Shield Generators (10120-1/5000 for Bandai) 1:5000 GreenStrawberry Star Destroyers. It’s just occurred to me that despite their name, they can’t even destroy planets, which was why the Death Star was created - as Alderaan found out to their cost. Still, it’s a cool name. Apart from Tantive IV, known at the Blockade Runner in the olden days, the Star Destroyer was the first ship to hit the screen at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode IV. Bandai have the Far Eastern kit rights to the Star Wars franchise, but those kit
  4. Venator Class Clear Resin Panels (10420-1/2274 for Revell) 1:2274 GreenStrawberry We reviewed the FruitPACK set for the Revell Republic Star Destroyer in 1:2274 here a little while ago, which included a set of much more detailed resin side panels, where all the greeblies are found between the top and bottom hull halves. This set is from the same moulds, but has been cast in clear resin for anyone wishing to light their model, but not wanting to go down the fibre-optic route. With this set you can light the interior and just lightly drill out or even scratch off
  5. Colonial Viper Mk.II & Mk.VII Updates (for Moebius/Revell) 1:32 GreenStrawberry It’s quite a while since the revitalised and re-imagined Battlestar Galactica (BSG) hit our screens, running from 2004 to 2009 through five series and a spin-off covering some of the exploits of the Pegasus, as well as a short-lived prequel series about the events leading up to the Cylons’ devastating attack on the colonies. Galactica’s flee from the Cylon onslaught was covered by the mighty Viper fighters and their brave pilots, initially the Mk.II was drawn out of retirement thr
  6. Waterslide Decals for Slave 1 Boba Fett (1004) & Jango Fett (1006) 1:144 GreenStrawberry Slave 1 first appeared in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back with bounty hunter Boba Fett at the controls, following Han & Leia on their journey to Cloud City on the gas giant Bespin, with all the Lando shenanigans that ensued. It also appeared in the Prequel series in an earlier blue and yellow themed paint scheme in the hands of (SPOILERS) Boba’s father, Jango Fett. It seems that father and son were both guilty of leaving repairs and maintenance at the bottom of th
  7. Star Wars Venator Class Republic Attack Cruiser FruitPACK (FP12) 1:2274 GreenStrawberry When Mr Lucas announced that the Star Wars universe was expanding after a long hiatus with a prequel trilogy planned, everyone got quite excited, although this was tempered by the dreadful opening crawl that wittered on about trade agreements and had us all nodding off. That was then and this is now, where a great many of us have begun to reassess the Prequels in a new light, but I still think that some of it’s a bit hokey in places (especially the dialogue). One of the more
  8. Lando’s Millennium Falcon FruitPACK (FP11 for Bandai) 1:144 GreenStrawberry The story of Han Solo’s younger years filled in a lot of blanks for many Star Wars fans, although Solo: A Star Wars Story got a luke warm reception thanks to the then-recent divisive sequels, that maybe it didn’t deserve, if it had been judged on its own merits. I say that with my Star Wars fan hat on, which is just the thing to watch what is a Space Opera at its heart, and allowing for the jarring sight of someone else playing the titular part because Harrison Ford has unsurprisingly age
  9. Babylon 5 The Station (09420-1/19660 for Revell) 1:19660 GreenStrawberry Babylon 5 was a ground-breaking American Sci-Fi TV show, or Space Opera from the mid-to-late 1990s that broke a few records, being amongst the first shows to utilise the then nascent Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) instead of the usual miniatures and mattes for the space ships and exterior action, plus a great deal of CGI used in expanding the sets that the humans were later placed in. It also had a five-season story arc, rather than the usual piecemeal show-by-show or season-by-season appr
  10. Star Destroyer Decals (1005 for Bandai 001) 1:14500 GreenStrawberry The Star Destroyer was the first Imperial ship to be seen in the iconic opening scene of Star Wars, that some strange people now refer to as “A New Hope”. To me it will always be Star Wars, because I’m of a certain age. Bandai have been working hard to fill lots of gaps in the available Star Wars kits for a few years now since they took up the mantle from Fine Molds when the Sequel Trilogy began, and they have a huge range of kits now, including the Vehicle range that this set of decals is inten
  11. Star Wars Hangar Crew (72006 & 72007) 1:72 GreenStrawberry You've probably heard of Star Wars just like you've also probably heard of Bandai, so if you put those two together you've probably also heard of GreenStrawberry and if you haven't you're about to, so prepare your wallet for a shock when you see all the lovely sets that are available. GS as I call them for my ease produce all sorts of accessories and detail upgrades for Sci-Fi subjects in general and Star Wars is one that features heavily on their menu. This latest batch of sets are great for the dio
  12. USS Defiant NX/NCC-74205 (FruitPACK FP08 for AMT) 1:420 GreenStrawberry It’s Star Trek time again, this time it’s the USS Defiant from Deep Space Nine, when they decided to give the crew of the space station a bit more robust mobility and add some greater breadth to the story-telling. The Defiant is a war ship plain and simple, and that’s all it was been designed for. As well as taking part in season 3 onwards and making an appearance in the Star Trek movie First Contact, it is a chunky little ship and has a bit of a “Voyager” look to some of her shapes, althoug
  13. USS Discovery NCC-1031 FruitPACK (FP09) 1:2500 GreenStrawberry Star Trek fans will have heard of the latest show from the Star Trek universe, which ploughs an alternate timeline furrow with Captain Pike still in charge of the Enterprise and some rather weird looking Klingons. There’s also a view into the more sneaky side of Starfleet, Section 31, who don’t seem to share the higher moral standing of the previous incarnations of the United Federation of Planets. The Discovery, from the Crossfield Class of ships has some quite extraordinary propulsion systems that
  14. Star Wars BTL A-4 Y-Wing (VC03) 1:72 GreenStrawberry It's common knowledge that the new Bandai Star Wars model kits are pretty awesome, especially since they can be made without any paint or glue, but with this being a modelling forum there are likely to be a lot of us considering upgrades, because we just can't resist! GreenStrawberry have a raft of update sets for these kits that should satisfy most tastes, and they have now broadened their range by introducing a new range of vacform canopies, and with more planned and in progress. What does a vacform canopy d
  15. Star Wars Hangar Crew & Equipment Vo.IV (72004 & 07219-1/72) 1:72 Greenstrawberry You've probably heard of Star Wars just like you've also probably heard of Bandai, so if you put those two together you've probably also heard of GreenStrawberry and if you haven't you're about to, so prepare your wallet for a shock when you see all the lovely sets that are available. GS as I call them for my ease produce all sorts of accessories and detail upgrades for Sci-Fi subjects in general and Star Wars is one that features heavily on their menu. This latest batch of
  16. Colonial Viper Mk.VII (FP06 for Moebius) 1:32 GreenStrawberry Battlestar Galactica was a firm favourite with kids in the 80s, and its reimagining in the early 2000s brought a whole new generation of fans into the mix, as well as some complex, exciting stories and a different organic Cylon than the shiny metal clankers we had become used to. The ships also received a make-over, although the Colonial Viper still showed its Aaron Spelling produced origins, retaining the same overall shape for the older Marks, and for the later Mk.VII a sleek, streamlined hull that s
  17. 2001: Discovery XD-1 FruitPACK (FP05) 1:144 GreenStrawberry 2001: Space Odyssey is possibly one of the most well-known, ground-breaking and most revered movies in Sci-Fi circles, filmed by genius director Stanley Kubrick, years before Star Wars re-broke the mould, with previously unseen quality of special effects and a grown-up story. The ships were believable both in their design and execution with a number of memorable craft that had a practical harshness to both the design and cinematography. The main ship that carried the crew to Jupiter to meet with the sec
  18. YT-1300 Millennium Falcon FruitPACK (FP-04) 1:144 GreenStrawberry We're back to Star Wars again! It's pretty certain that GreenStrawberry are clearly SW fans, as they have released a substantial number of sets for the various kits, including the big and the little Falcons. Now they're offering the little Falcon sets in a super-set, which gives you both sets and offers a discount on the individual purchase price. The set arrives in a thick card envelope with the details on the front on a white sticker. Inside are the two individual sets in the usual G
  19. Star Wars Hangar Crew & Equipment 1:72 GreenStrawberry That low-budget cult classic from LucasFilm is back again, this time with accessories to liven up any diorama that you may wish to create with your massive stash of Bandai kits, or indeed any other 1:72 Star Wars kit. Thinking of it, they'd be pretty useful with any 1:72 Sci-Fi model, with maybe a little adjustment to remove any of the more obvious Star Wars design cues. Each set arrives in a small card box, with the figures in a tiny ziplok bag, a sheet of instructions where necessary doing the job of pr
  20. YT-1300 Millennium Falcon Perfect Grade FruitPack (FP-03) 1:72 GreenStrawberry Bandai have had the license for all things styrene and Star Wars in the Far East since the reawakening of the franchise, and have produced some truly amazing snap-together kits that have more detail than many "proper" model kits, and these are now being licensed by Revell for wider distribution to us westerners. Their Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon is a tour-de-force in plastic engineering, offering a 1:72 dinner plate sized Millennium Falcon as it appears in the progenitor of the seri
  21. Star Wars T-65 X-Wing Vacform Canopy (VC02 for Bandai) 1:72 GreenStrawberry It's common knowledge that the new Bandai Star Wars model kits are pretty awesome, especially since they can be made without any paint or glue, but with this being a modelling forum there are likely to be a lot of us considering upgrades, because we just can't resist! GreenStrawberry have a raft of update sets for these kits that should satisfy most tastes, and they have now broadened their range by introducing a new range of vacform canopies for the X-Wing initially, and with more planned
  22. Apparat Male Soldier (Sci-Fi Figure) 1:20 GreenStrawberry This lovely little(ish) figure is part of a fantasy/Sci-Fi universe that springs from the minds of the folks from GreenStrawberry, not the musician I'd never heard of until today! It arrives in a small black themed box in their usual Sci-Fi style, and inside you'll find three ziplok bags of resin parts, a sheet of masks for the included base, and a short instruction sheet that also includes some painting suggestions for your figure. There are ten resin parts in total, including indiv
  23. Star Wars Name Placards (A-Wing, Slave 1, AT-ST) GreenStrawberry We've all had the situation where someone has extended a finger at one of our creations with a quizzical look on their face and uttered the immortal words "What's that then?". Forcing down the urge to roll your eyes and sigh, with some retort such as "Don't you know anything about Sci-Fi?", you dutifully explain what it is, which film it was in, and how many hours you put into its creation. Well now you don't even have to open that slot under your nose, as you can pop one of these rather attractive
  24. (Sci-Fi) Hangar Deck 04 (DP06) (No Scale) GreenStrawberry https://www.britmodeller.com/reviews/greenstrawberry/bases/dp04/boxtop.jpg Finding a display base for your latest creation can be a mite tricky, so it's often a case of building your own. No longer is that the case, as GreenStrawberry have come up with a new line of Display Pads that are available now, and able to be completed one of two ways, depending on how much effort you want to put into your base. The base arrives in a small black box with the usual GS styling, and a stick
  25. Snowspeeder Update Set (05018-1/48) for Bandai 1:48 GreenStrawberry Star Wars and Bandai have become synonymous with each other this last few years with thousands of us importing these Far East only offerings, which are laden with detail despite their snap-together nature. GreenStrawberry have a habit of producing superb resin and Photo-Etch (PE) that takes these kits to the next level, and here's one right now! As usual with GreenStrawberry Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a black-themed backing card protecting the co
