Tactical: Shiva is Finger and Toe Models’ version of the air dragoons’ infantry fire support vehicle. The Shiva began life as a fire team-sized infantry transport. Although faster than most ground transports because of its use of lift fan technology to achieve hover, a vehicle limited to transporting only four or five team members was deemed too expensive. Weimar Aeronautical bought the rights to the Shiva design and production and began tricking the vehicle out in various configurations. The most effective became the Shiva Fire Support Vehicle. Its rail gun main armament could be used in direct or indirect fire modes, while the twin Gatling guns and rocket pods gave infantry commanders a wide range of fire options previously unavailable to air dragoon squadron commanders. The defense pod launchers protect the vehicle from incoming kinetic and energy weapons.

Shiva is one of three air-transportable vehicles specifically designed to fit in the cargo bay of a Finger and Toes BumbleBee. It measures It comes in four color schemes to match those of the military BumbleBee.

Finger and Toe’s motto, “Because they don’t cost you an arm and a leg,” explains the company’s philosophy: affordable scenery and model sets for wargamers. Visit the website [ ], look around, join the forum, have fun. If you like what you see, try our other products at RPGNOW.

This model is a little nugget of gold! F&T has taken a small model, and given it the raw firepower of something twice its size. It has a moving turret (using the optional instructions) and fits inside the BUMBLEBEE Utility Dropship's [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
