    Nice, aren't they? Got them too, but not in the nice case, just put on a shelf (next to some Thunderbirds and a very battered Starfury) as I got them back in the day.
    Great series, Straker is a real prototype for the lead characters of later years.

    The Mobiles were my favorite vehicle on the show.

    What an awesome dad. I'd personally turn the front two diagonally but they look nice on display instead of simply on a shelf.

    My parents despised science fiction. My Dad did put together an AMT Enterprise for me--hacking and sawing it for me when I said "it doesn't look right." Best model I ever had.

    I brought it to my Grandmother's house--my Mom's Mom--and she warned me not to take it, saying I'd break it.

    Then my cousin showed up and I hid it from the little hellion--and my Mom up and volunteered I show him my "Star Track." I think she knew I loved it--and did that on purpose. She and her Mom forced me to share it with him--and he ran at full speed all over the house.

    The little bastard broke it of course, hooking his ankle on a recliner that dated to the Precambrian.

    That's when I learned God hated me. ;)
