Greetings fellow Air Raiders fans, A while back I posted a picture of the Scout Patrol prototype(see here), a Tyrant of Wind playset that was part of the canceled 1988 line. The set was designed and built by Bill Cooke who was part of the R&D department. Well, I spoke with Mr. Cooke recently and…… Continue reading Tyrants of Wind Scout Patrol Prototype, Part 2
Hey all, I figured since I did several shirts for the Command Outpost (see post here) that I’d do one for the bad guys too. The general feeling I get is that people seem to like the Hawkwind the best (for good reason!) so I decided to go in that direction.

There’s been an Air Raiders Survival Kit on ebay for years now but the price of almost $1000 seemed a little bit too much, especially since the glider was already put together and showed some damage. Another kit was posted recently at a more reasonable price and has the added benefit of not being used…… Continue reading Air Raiders Survival Kit on ebay
