International Star Wars Day May the Fourth (Be With You)

Because there is only one space princess…

Even the recent gutsy female leads have an element or echo of Leia in the form of Rey lead character (Daisy Ridley) of the last three Star Wars films VII to IX and Jyn Erso in Rogue One (Felicity Jones), probably my favourite recent Star Wars standalone film.

Airfix Star Warriors space princess vs the real one …

Lots of space related postings over the last four very odd years including the gift of some 54mm plastic American Tim Mee Galaxy space figures from Alan Gruber which are now finally on my painting table.

And the whole Flash Gordon thing in 54mm & 32mm Pound Store figure conversions …

Where my non-Airfix pocket money went in the 1970s. Month’s pocket money each … I still have them today!
