I'm looking forward to the lifting bodies, but the LOK Moonship looks uber cool and may well dip for that too.

How accurate are they though with timings? Both the lifting bodies have a release of 2016?

This is the email I recieved from Allen at Fantastic Plastic yesterday:

 

"The HL-10 and M2-F3 kits are going into casting next month. They should be ready for release in mid-summer. The UFO Moon Mobile has already gone into casting. I hope to release it in June. I'm happy to put you on the waiting list for all three kits. Thanks for your interest.

So we can take it, it is a typo on the website.

Strictly, you only need a bit more than half a Steve Austin figure... you have to scratch build the rest...

best,

Check wikipedia, apparently both appeared but I"ll go with the HL-10 serial 804.

I like the look of the Mars lander, kind of Space Shuttle meets traditional rocket.

For those of you that fancy putting a combo together with LOK Moonship, Fantastic Plastic already manufacture the Soviet lander in 1/48. I saw this beastie when it was on show at the Science Museum a couple years back as part of display of Soviet space hardware. It was big and robust!
