Tempest_512 No, they're in their own section and sold as individual ships. If you want the ship by itself in high detail, that's the way to go.
Tempest_512@l_Herobrine_l Yes, the Taiidan fighters had to have their wings thickened significantly at the scale they're at. To have their thrusters sitting on the base, you lose the ability to see the bottom. The 1/270 scale fighters are standalone miniatures that do not do this.
Tempest_512@l_Herobrine_l Of course. My experiences with these models is they are much more durable for gameplay when they are not mounted on a stand. The homeworld fighters have many small bits that make it hard to mount on a peg.
The Turanic ones are quite sturdy and can be mounted on a peg, however.
Tempest_512@l_Herobrine_l Homeworld motherships are sold here at a reduced scale because they would be massive and expensive at actual scale. Cataclysm motherships are at 1.5x smaller, and Homeworld motherships are 2x smaller. You can still fit frigates in the frigate bays, so they don't feel out of place.
Tempest_512@dukoth Yes, those ships will be for sale when I finish them. The Beast Mothership is currently in progress, and the tradeship/ghostship are a bit further out from completion.
Tempest_512@Chrisnuke Great question! This is done to drain the wax inside the model during the printing process. If the other stand hole bothers you, you can use modeling putty or superglue to close it up.
Tempest_512@foznoth WSF is a disappointing material for these miniatures-I've ordered a number of them in different materials and was most pleased by the performance of frosted detail plastics. WSF simply doesn't have the detail resolution to make it a worthy replica of the originals, and while polished gets rid of the nasty looking steps, it has the added problem of sacrificing even more fine details. FUD and FED produce models with similar (or better) detail than the metal sculpts.
Unfortunately, even though they're hollow, the Tau ships tend to have narrow sections that make hollowing less effective than on blockier ships.
Tempest_512@foznoth Yes, both the Messenger and Defender are due for completion. They are awesome ships.
Tempest_512@davepadenusn I'm sorry about the torn midsection. I'll get a revised model up as soon as possible. I didn't anticipate the model breaking there, but upon inspection it's definitely a load-bearing wall that needs to be reinforced. Thanks for the feedback!
