When Twenty First Century Games went out of bussiness, Laertes and me decided to make sure the two of us possessed a copy of every (SF) model they made.
An order was placed and the spoils divided. The citernes models went to him (among others), however I assembled everything for the both of us.
The moment I put this specific kit together, I wanted one for myself.
Difficult task since they were now OOP. :?
Thanks to Ebay (and a larger budget by now) I got hold of the kit, and just finished assembling this beauty  :D:

I have a handful of their buildings, but never knew the company's name. Picked it up on ebay for a few €. Some of it was too badly damaged though, the Iron Cloud for example. The rest saw me and my gaming group through two Necromunda campaigns so far. Very good stuff, I quite envy you. ;)

very good indeed,
I also have the missile base, data tower, comms tower, barricades and outpost (one of their later models, much thinner cardboard so basicly rubbish)
Laertes has the black moon base/iron cloud combination (talk about enormous), monorail,  detention camp, cisterns, and the relay station.
And just now do I get a hit on google of a Mining Complex. Never seen it before, so WANT.

Really great models.

Finished the Detention Camp and this one clearly shows these kits date back from the days 25mm was the standard.
I added a photo of a Brotherhood of Steel Paladin on top of the walls that shows these weren't designed for 30mm bases (same goes for the hallway in the cell block).









apologies for the lower quality pics (artificial light and an unsteady hand  o_o)
