Cataloguing the Collection (10)

The next drawer to be indexed is my small collection of spaceships. These all date back to the nineties, and I haven't back-identified (i.e. identifying the original manufacturer) yet for all models.

This collection is very much a retro-collection for me. I first played a game of Full Thrust in 1992 (IIRC), at EuroGencon in Camber Sands. I have been a Full Thrust fan ever since, although it has been many years since I played a decent game. We played most games during the mid-nineties, in the gameshop in my hometown Leuven.

At one point I also had a large collection of plastic MicroMachines of various Star Trek and Star Wars ships, but I sold them at one point. The current collection are all metal models acquired during the nineties, with a significant presence by Games Workshop (Space Fleet), GDW (Traveller New Era) and FASA (Star Trek). The fighter stands are scratch-built, with counters printed and then mounted on a flight stand.

The purple shapes you see in the top-right corner are my attempt at scratch-building a space-floating alien, modeled after the planet killer in Star Trek.

Still unidentified;
  •  all the green ships on the left-hand side.
  • the red ships in the middle. They are Tholian ships (Star Trek), but haven't been to identify them properly. Probably FASA?
  • the round and solid starbase (with 3 red griffons) in the top-right corner.


  1. Hmm, I wonder if those Green Ships could possibly be from the Star Frontiers range by TSR, I have a few ships from that range from the early 80's, and it has a simliar feel to what you have.

    I could be wrong of course, but it's a guess worth checking out.

    1. Thanks for the tip. Will check it out ...

    2. I think they are Gorn from ADB Star Fleet Battles:
