I've been watching some DVDs of the classic Muppet show and was wondering if anybody has seen a scratchbuilt of the classic the Swinetrek?

Noit finding anything in a search. Not even a picture of the original. Just a lot of Playskool playset stuff of the interior. You might have a first-of.

LOL! That *would* be a challenging build....

When I was a kid, my neighbor Danny who flew rockets with me and my brother had an Estes Icarus that he painted silver and put some Ms. Piggy sticker on it. He put the plastic pigs from a "pig mania" game in the payload section and called it his Pigs In Space rocket. Didn't really look like the one from the show or in CTimm's post, but as kids, we sure thought it was cool.


Too bad I don't have a picture of it.

And then the thing leaps skyward with a 12" red flame shooting out it's butt.
