Finger and Toe announce the release of the 28mm cardstock pdf model of the OLV-L Manatee in four solid Space Force colors: Space Force gray, sky blue, stealth black, and peacekeeper white. The model is about eight inches long, nine wide, and two high. The model comes with cargo pods that will fit the open bay: a standard ISO-style shipping container, a “squad pod” for transporting troops, and a refueling station. All share similar dimensions: 2" wide, 4" long, and 1 1/4" high (any cargo you have that fits a 2x4 footprint should fit in the hold).
Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh your Manatee, a new transport waits your summons from hard drive and printer.

nah. assurance it is--too many years spent talking up social security as social insurance (OK, I got paid to do it, but still)--the term gives me the willies. Assurance carries a meaning of making safe (plus there's an alternate meaning of impudence--which actually fits). It's meant to be kinda, well, silly. After all, everybody knows you can print out another.
It goes back to the day I priced a resin model set at $750 for That Other Game with Lawyers--about what I'd just paid for a week in Venice. Then I looked at my resin troops--boots and ankles glued to bases were all that was left of them. That experience was actually what sent me down the road to Finger and Toe--I "assure" you.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download
