A new acquisition arrives at SKJ HQ...



..touches down on the runway.



(OK ok I know the 'runway' is really only the garden path but work with me here guys!)



.... and taxis to a halt.



The Persuit craft was way after my AM era but I remember my little brother getting one for xmas 1978. I was 17 but secretly enjoyed building his for him xmas morning!



The photoshoot was abandoned after this pic as the 'light breeze' that was blowing must have toppled poor old Joe over about a dozen times as I tried to take the shot.

What a lovely garden. I like the way your crazy paving path flows through the beautifully manicured grass past the washing line and bird bath and onto what I think looks like a shed. Oh a bit preoccupied with houses and gardens at the moment...... By the way your pursuit craft looks great, still regret selling mine lol

I got him from Reddog a while ago and I think Flocktastic did the flocking.

Hey remember the pursuit craft is also VTOL so it don`t matter about the runway you could land on top of the bird bath should you desire bounce. This was a vehicle that came out towards the end of my young action man days and I hated it nowadays I realise it for what it is a great toy with great play potential what an arse I was back then Razz
