after a long time of not looking at them, i took out my star wars, and star trek special collectors edition "pewter" sets. the detail intricacy of these vehicles are amazing!
(i know, i know, these sets are generally dismissed by most mm collectors) however, they are absolutely facinating to look at. each line, crevice, and raised detail stands out in striking clarity. they really show the level of detail achieved by galoob in manufacturing such a small toy!
the same can also be said about the japanese only released action fleet zaap pack. the pewterized finish brings out every last little nuance in the shape and design of the x-wing and darth vaders tie.
if you've overlooked these mm sets in the past, i highly recommend picking them up, as they are really something special to enjoy.
the "bronze" sets are nice in their own right as well, but they do not stand out as well as the "pewter" sets.
i 'v never seen a rawcliff real petwer ship, i know that jt loves em, but as my collection is pretty much limited to all things galoob, i doubt that i will start buying those.
