Spacer1999 Transports 1/1000 Scale
Greigor I am not ranting about this oversight on my part. I am responding to comments being sent to me. If you remember I did indeed question the scale at the beginning. And as I have repeatedly stated I am pleased with the models as they are. Thank you
Greigor The models are shown as individual pieces and not on the sprue which would have made it clear that the dimensions given were for all 5 pieces. As I mentioned in an earlier memo I asked several other persons how they would interpret the dimensions as given and all said they read it as each piece was the size described. I am very pleased with the models even with them being smaller then originally expected. Thank you
Greigor Thank you for your prompt reply though you may want to clarify this issue in your description. I asked several other people about how they read the description and they all stated they would take the description to mean each model was that size. Again I commend you on providing a model that is much needed in the sci fi community. Thank you
Greigor I just received my Eagle transporters and they are much smaller then the 6.57 cm length in the description. In fact they are 3.2 cm in length. I would appreciate acquiring the items as described. Thank you
Greigor @Mechanoid A scale of 1/1000 in modeling terms means that 1 inch is equal to 1000 inches. My references for the size of the eagle comes directly from blueprints of the vessel included in the Moonbase Alpha Technical Manual that came out back when the show first aired. I also have several models of the Eagle in various scales and all fit to a true length of 76 to 80 ft. There were, back when the show aired, several issues of Starlog magazine which gave dimensions of the Eagles as well as other vehicles and items in the show. I am still very eager to see your work and commend you on taking the time and effort to produce a series of models from a show that I enjoyed. Thank you for your response.
Greigor I am eagerly awaiting my order of these fine looking models. I have one concern regarding the scale of them however. The Eagle transporter measured 76ft in length which would make a model of 1/1000 about 2cm in length. Thank you
