PostSubject: Glencoe Kitbash - RIMFIRE   Fri Oct 17, 2008 6:52 pm

This is my kitbash of a Glencoe Convair Manned Obsveration Satellite which was part of the Strombeker collection of the 1950's and 1960's. When I saw this kit I saw some possibilities for a kit bash so here it is the RIMFIRE

The RIMFIRE was a colonial fleet ship that was decomissiioned before the first Cylon war and since then was in the fleet salvage yard until 2 years before the return of the Cylons and the destruction of the human colonies. The RIMFIRE was bought and converted to civilian use by the son of the last captain of the RIMFIRE at time her decomissioning. The converted ship new use was that of a Colonial moving tug for the Trans Space Lines (TSL) a outfit of dubious and shady dealings. Reason the RIMFIRE survived the Cylon massacre of the 12 colonies was she was outside normal spacelanes returning from a transport job when word of the Cylon attack of the colonies and subsequent order from Commander Adama of the Battlestar Galactica did the RIMFIRE join up with the rest of the fleet. The RIMFIRE is not without its own bite. She is equiped with 12 turbo lasers and 2 MK 2 Vipers were also salvaged at the time when she was bought and converted. The RIMFIREs new mission is providing a home for some of the countless refugees from the Cylon Massacre of the 12 Colonies.
