I meant B5's production company was looking for a quick buck, not Mongoose.

I am a bug Mongoose fan. Traveller is excellent, and they brought back Paranoia, one of the greatest RPGs ever (and to think other wise would make you a commie mutant traitor- all hail the our friend the Computer).

1-3125 is actually bigger than 1-3788.

The CA saucer is 33mm in staline 2400 and 40mm in 2500.

Cool! For some strage reason I had 1/2400 scale stuck in my brain for Starline scale. I'm so glad I was wrong in that matter.

I contacted them and had a VERY positive response. Good news all around as the scale difference isn't that much. As I have most of the minis line drawn already, all I have to do is adjust the size to match the new scale and do some virtual test fitting. Of course the true test will be fitting to a prototype. Just have to wait and see. Can't wait.

When I got back into the Star Fleet Universe just recently after my hiatus since the '80s, I had decided I wasn't going to buy or collect any miniatures. I planned to just use counters like I do with my other war games.

SO MUCH FOR THAT PLAN!! Laughing

I'm just afraid I am too blind now to paint them properly!

Ooooh! Larger size!

Now instead of just painting the windows... I can paint crew members inside the ships! Cool

Just think... Juggernauts are part of the 2400 line... so eventually Mongoose will be doing resin Juggernauts that are even bigger than the existing metal version...

I would love to have a 1/7000 fleet scale versions, but I think that was tried before and did not fare well.

Here's the link to the computer designed master of the Federation CA. The images start near the top of the page.

Model #1 of the Klingon D7 can be found here, near the bottom of the page. This design incorporated several features that were more in line with the later, movie-era versions of the D7... so version #2 was created.

So far, no other images have been posted, but many of us are waiting with baited breath.

They may even have a prototype of two at Gencon.
