Having some fun working up up some not-Trek and some generic ships in 1:20000. Enjoy

The Echo series looks like proper Kzinti ships to me, per the Niven short stories.

Scale does not mean much to me for starships. How large are these in inches. Say for example the diameter of the base would be a good reference.

Thanks,

Al

I went to their website and picked a ship at random. Comes out around .5 inches x .5 inches. So they are probably going to be useful for really big games or as is for board game markers.

I hate shapeways because of the lack of information about products. The price is around $5.50 USD, but is that for 1 ship, 2 ships on a sprue, a gaggle of ships?

Allen57 Supporting Member of TMP04 Jun 2018 3:15 p.m. PST

The ships are not that large. The sprue of the helo generic large warship shown above contains two ships. The dimension given on Shapeways are 1.34 x 1.51 x 0.45 inches. This is an overall dimension of the sprue so my guess is that each ship is probably about .65" wide by 1.51" long or 1.34 long and .60 wide. The height of the ship, stand, and the sprue below them included is .45" tall. I wish Kirk would chime in with the exact dimensions (L x W) of each model. I primarily collect the Microfleets made by National Cheese Emporium link and while I like the generic look of Kirks ships I don't want to do all math to compare the two lines.

I will get measurements for the individual ships tomorrow and post them up. Cool ?

". The price is around $5.50 USD USD, but is that for 1 ship, 2 ships on a sprue, a gaggle of ships?"

with my stuff, what you see is what you get. With her generics, the small warships are 3-4 in a squadron. Same with the mediums. Depending on the style, some of the partnerships are in groups of two, with a few that have more.

Kirk Alderfer04 Jun 2018 7:37 p.m. PST

And I really like Javelins stuff.

Just finished up some Orville-ish ships and let loose a few Galaxy Quest-ish ones. Need to work up some transports for this groups yet.
Only going to do a few more groups before doing some more Galactic ships some more 20K Trek ships, any requests ?
