Any news about when the 3-to-1 models will be coming out in 2017 ?

Does that mean 3X bigger?

JOHN CSONKA19 May 2017 12:16 a.m. PST

Yes. Resin miniatures three times bigger….See Metal express web site….or here…

So at 3:1 will this be closer to an X-Wing scale??

Thanks for the info.

Bigger than X-Wing, and we're still dealing with some other preliminary projects…

Most likely we'll resort to a kickstarter to see if there's enough interest. The good news is is that we have masters already for most of the Core Ships plus extras including Draconian, Brood, and a number of House specials.

The bad news is is that we don't have a Night Hawk of all things, so we'd be seeking to line up a sculptor/model maker to produce a master for that essential flying six-gun killer, and most likely make it a stretch goal if/when we run a kickstarter.

Can you give a rough date when these will come to kick starter Leland ?

wish to Hell I could be more specific at this point, but until I can pow wow with my two partners in crime, and until I pin down with 100% certainty who will be handling the resin production, I have to leave it at some time probably in the third or fourth quarter of this year…

Hope to have a more definite date, etc. nailed down if not by month's end, then by next month at some point for sure. It is low hanging fruits as it were, if there's enough interest and we get a producer lined up who is game for the party (and reliable!).

Thanks for the reply Leland. Looking forward to the kick starter.

Hey Leland! check the address in your Signature. It is a dead link.

What is the figure scale of SD ships?

BlackWidowPilot Supporting Member of TMP Fezian26 May 2017 10:07 a.m. PST

Ack! Silly me! Old habits die hard. The correct addy:

And by scale if you mean the metal fighter minis, it's circa 1/450 scale. The 3 to 1 models are circa 1/115 scale, and frankly, more than a few are still large enough to work for 15mm figures with little or no modifications.

I was asking about the metal ones….

Though I am still interested in the 3 to 1 models…
