These are simply amazing - as are the other goodies on your blog.  I'm going to be checking it out regularly from now on.  Consider my mind blown.
Check out THE CROGAN ADVENTURES, a historical adventure graphic novel series available from your local bookstore or comic shop (or, of course, Amazon).  I make 'em.

Your blog is a gold mine for conversions and ideas....it's a shame I couldn't find a decent Lars Family landspeeder at a low price (or correct shipping cost).

BTW I thought you could use Crushing ruleset to play races with a minor modification.

What are you planning for the race table?

Haven't quite gotten there yet!

The track will be a figure 8, so there will be a chance of collision in the middle.   >:D  I think half of the race will be in the city streets, I have a some buildings already completed for this.  The other half will be through the desert & badlands (beggar's canyon).  A lot depends on how much room I have, my game room is a bit small. :?

Just keep an eye out, they get listed on ebay all the time, often for under $10.

Yep bargains are out there. After being inspired by Chris's pages I picked up 3 boxed sets (Ronto/Luke's Speeder Lars Speeder,Bantha/Dewback/Escape Pod) on ebay for $22.

Here are a couple more custom landspeeders that I finished recently.  I had these sitting around half-finished for a loooong time, and so I finally added the last bit of paint and weathering over the weekend. 



There are lots more photos on my miniatures blog, along with details on how I made them, you can see them here:
