Failsafe is a fantastic episode of Young Justice, and I got inspired to try my hand at making a model of one of the scout ships.
If you don’t already know who Bort the Ysalamir is, do yourself a favor and go check out the Campaign Podcast. They’re a phenomenal Star Wars actual play podcast that uses the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars role-playing game system to tell awesome stories in the most goofy and dramatic ways you can imagine.
