    Mego Buck Rogers 3.75 Custom Playset

    I've been wanting to display my 3 3/4" Buck Rogers collection for a long time. I originally had them set up in the display I made for the 8" Zica BR figures, but the setup with the ships didn't look quite right since the scale is so different. Since I built the design using a 3D graphics program, I just adjusted the scene so that the scale was more appropriate for the 3 3/4" size of the figures and ships and then changed the views so that they are direct forward shots, instead of perspective views - more typical of Mego playsets. I'm really pleased at how well the Didas work with the 3 3/4" scale. Now I have some ideas for diorama designs for my Star Wars collection.

    One side of the set features the New Chicago hangar

    The reverse side has the Draconian flight deck with the missles Buck plugs into the Draconian Marauder

    The glare from the lighting washes out the artwork, so here's the actual 3D designs

    Very very cool. I have always wanted the ships, but I can never seem to catch them in good enough condition for a good price. I have all the figures though.
    Don't become dependent on others for your own happiness.

    Sharp! Man, I'd forgotten about Buck Rogers--that was a surprisingly good toy line.

    Great stuff! I remember watching the show, but never had the toys. Your displays look really cool.

    It reminds me of DAPOL's Doctor Who TARDIS playset.
