Using this thread as a placeholder/teaser until I get my grubby little mits on it Friday …


Wondering about scale? Could 15mm work?
Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Oh, forgot to mention … I'm getting 6x of 'em … ,-) OOPS

When I saw it in a store I thought to myself…."that would work as a 15mm Dropship……"

Golgoloth Inactive Member22 Nov 2017 4:54 p.m. PST

That was my initial thought, too!

But I don't have any atm. Off to Dark Sphere Friday then :-)

I don't recall where I saw it, but IIRC, the the Revel kit one was about a foot long (maybe 1/100 or 1/72 scale?) and looked great with 28mm figs.

My guess is that the 6" die cast will look great alongside 15mm figs. Good luck!

The Revell sound&light kit is 1/100.

C'mon guys! I said 6 inches!

Stop going on about something a foot long!

Damned size queens!

It's enough to give a guy an inferiority complex … ,-)

Where is this new Pelicans pic and info at?

And yes, the Revell one is 1/100 scale.
Got 2 of 4 thus far.
David Woods, accomplished painter and modeller, recently assembled and custom painted one. Just finished selling it on eBay. It's a beauty.

Regardless of the scale. I think that for 15mm wargaming, 6 inches may be better and definitley more manageable on the tabletop.

Hi Golgoloth,

I got the same ship to use for 15mm, it can easily work for 15mm, as its about the same size as the Rebel dropships. As a bonus, it reasonably painted too.

Sorry for referencing my blog, but here's a link to pics vs 15mm figs and other VTOLs:

Here's another comparing it with one of the new Revell kits:
