It looks like some of the buildings could be useful as admin structures as well.

I've ordered from Brigade several times, and highly recommend both their service and quality. My only complaint is that I want nearly everything they make in 6mm and in the spaceships line.

There is the base "skirt" part, fully detailed with blowers on the underside, there is the cab/bed piece, and a canvas top cover. Thus, you can use the blower frame for kitbashing, the canvas back can be left off to allow for an open bed cargo unit, or it can be built fully covered.

Highly recommended!

How big are they, compared to a HVY?

They are extremely close in size to an SJG model GEV. The C-in-C mini is shorter in length by about 1 mm, but it is the same width. The roof of the cab of the C-in-C model is about 1 mm taller than the roof of the SJG one. The top of the canvas back is the same height as the top of the 'jets' on the SJG mini.

Since (as far as I know) SJG never sold a PE Hovertruck, this one fits nearly perfectly in looks. I think I'll need more than eight ...

(If I didn't know better, I'd almost say these were designed with "Ogre" in mind.)

Okay, they sound perfect. I'll have to pick some up. Thanks!

Randy Hoffa of C-in-C sculpted the very first Ogre armor units for Martian Metals. So what's really going on is . . . they both look like his work for the best of all possible reasons. I don't know if he is still actively sculpting (hope so!), but it's got to be under his guidance . . .

Well then, that cinches it for me. I've found my Paneuro hovertrucks, and a couple of C-in-C's combat hovercraft look perfect for Drew's missile and heavy GEVs.

I'll note the parcel had a printed page included, that indicated Mr. Hoffa was still quite active in it, setting aside a few days a week for making molds, sculpts, etc. There is also an email address for "RandyPFC@ ...."
