Starline 2500

Our joint venture with Mongoose includes an entirely new range of model starships called Starline 2500. These are more detailed than the 2400s, cast in pewter, and  use a larger 1-3125 scale. There are lively discussions on our BBS about this range. As of November 2013, ADB is entirely responsibile for design, production, quality control, and distribution. ADB is the only source for these ships. The 2400s will remain in production as long as anyone buys them (meaning, for the foreseeable future and maybe forever).

Federation Painting Guide
Painting inside the lines.
The new 2500-series Federation ships have strong inscribed lines to simulate the traditional hull plating welds.
Some like this, while others do not.
Fortunately, the models have been done in a way that you can make of them whatever YOU want the most!
If you want the lines to be prominent, you can use any of several painting techniques to make them highly visible.
If you want the lines to be more subtle, then simply don't worry about them and ignore them when painting the ship's base color.
As these side-by-side photos show, you can get out of them whatever you want!
