Mind my interests showing but a nice teardrop-shaped center hull with a proportional ring around such might be nice !

(A two piece model would keep the price down a bit.)

Looks wicked, Andrew!

Setting up my Cart for next week when I have the money. Adding a Salvage Cruiser on to make it over $25 ($ 27.79 is the total).

You're probably looking at about $10 for a model about twice that size, if the one with the landing gear and base is any indication. I wonder how big one that costs around $25 would be.

I hope you realize I'm going to be spending all my money on Traveller models (and painting supplies) now.

There's a handy size/price calculator on the site that might give you an idea:

http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archiv...ght-Price.html

Punching in the Scout (landed) at $10 to find scale for $25 gets 1.357 so it'd only be about 136% bigger if I read it right. I think that is 136% more material volume so for a solid model it would equate to the size increase. IF it is material volume and your model was hollow you would get a much bigger model size. IF I understand it correctly.

Thanks! Honestly, I'd like to see a larger one with landing gear, but without the base. That was what I was thinking before. I don't know the mechanics of all of this, so I don't know what's doable or what's not.

EDIT: calculated the Scout (plain) for $25 - 1.834. Which would be about a 2 and 3/4 inch long model. For $100 it only brings it up to 4 and a 1/3 inches long. It would be much cheaper hollow, I'm sure.

I don't base how I treat someone on whether on not I've met them.

Marc is very generous with his IP - he lets fans do all kinds of cool stuff, and all he asks in return is that we treat it with respect and get permission first.

A licence to sell Traveller miniatures is worth $$$, so he can't just let everyone start churning out their own.

My scout is a 1-off; if it works well, maybe things will change. For now, please avoid canon ships.

Me three. I'd even like to see turret variations too. But hey, I'm such a Traveller ship geek, I'd probably buy any and all of them.

Speaking of being a Traveller minis ship geek... I'm going to go paint one of my old minis right now!

Late update:

Shapeways was on the ball and very helpful. They canceled out my order, issued a coupon, and I was able to redo it. So I should have samples of each for review shortly (depending on speed of overseas post service - hope it goes air). Got an email this morning that they have gone to printing.
