Guys and Gals of the Kitbashing world:
I found something quite interesting I thought you'd be excited about, so I had to share!
There is a line of older Star Wars toys dubbed "Action Fleet" and the scale of the ships are PERFECT for Attacktix. These are roughly the same sizes as the Gunship is, and they're quite rugged. You can get them on Ebay (Look up "Star Wars Action Fleet") for 10$ a pop, and they are a plastic that's conducive to painting with both acrylic and enamel. Further, the weapons are roughly the same size as 'Tix, so it may be possible to drill and replace them with discarded launchers.
A great resource to find these is the Star Wars Cargo Bay. Google ("Star Wars Cargo Bay") to find it.
Yay, small ships that can be easily made into megas! Nice find. Problem is, I can't make Mega customs very well, and I always think I am going to screw it up, and then 10 bucks down the drain. SO yeah. But still this is good if I see some cheap Megas. Or I could try to fit it on a 10 pt base.

Xan - these ships are actually about the same scale (just a HAIR smaller) than the republic gunship, and there's virtually every vehicle in Star Wars in the line. They are great for customs in my view. Once someone sends me some (hint hint - you know who I'm talking about.....M) in trade I will post some photos.
