True, the term X-com isn't used (the group is Shado instead, iirc). But originally X-Com wasn't called X-Com. It was called UFO: Enemy Unknown.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I think they are also re-issuing some of the other Space 1999 kits, too ! I had one of those big eagles when I was a kid - now I regret giving it away - woulda made for a great model. I luv all things UFO, Space 1999 and Captain Scarlet!

Space: 1999 rocked!  One of my absolute favorite shows as a kid way back when.  I remember looking forward to Sunday evenings for the next episode.  Looking forward to this build for sure.  Good luck JD!
