Product Description

18cm tall Martian Tripod as illustrated by Alvim Correa at the very beginning of the 20th Century, for a special ‘deluxe’ edition of H. G. Wells’ novel in the French Language.  Correa and Wells knew each other quite well and the later is reported to have highly praised the former’s conception of the Martian fighting machine.  This kit will also fit very well with the N-gauge (1/160) railway accessories and figures.  Legs cast in white metal for added strength.

    I was stunned to find this kit. I’ve always loved the Correa illustrations – there’s an element of macabre whimsy that will be a real challenge to capture and translate to 3 dimensions. This kit is an honest-to-goodness ecstatic surprise of precisely the sort one always hopes to find during these interminable searches, but so seldom does.
    OK, I’m actually the rankest novice – this kit can wait until I have skills sufficient unto the task. I feel compelled to tell you that I took the plunge and ordered from eBay before looking at this site. Profuse and sincere apologies if this is not the way you’d prefer, but I saw the kit and was seized by an irresistible impulse to order. After looking things over, I know I must return here. The “Secret Treaties” decal sheet is unspeakably cool. You guys rock. /s/ K.
