Frank May MMM Customs

Frank May's Orbital Space Station

I think I've known frank for over 25 years - he was one of the first people that I know that got into customizing MMM-scaled vehicles and items, starting with his custom interpretation of the Or & Orbitor (at the time there were only tiny images available of both from a Mattel Catalog) and the Space Rover (the progenitor of the Astro-Trac and Reconojet). I created pages for each of his creations and had added them to the wildtoys site - unfortunately I stopped making updates sometime in 2006 so I've had to catch-up a bit on his customs - fortunately I saved most of Frank's posted content and images - I think this is most of them. There are frankly (pun-intended) too many to list separately on the Customization page, so here they are aggregated into a single list. Enjoy!
