    ADB Releases Ships in June 2019!

    On June 6, 2019, ADB released a total of 50 new items to its shop on Shapeways, bringing it to over 1500 items. New to its store are some styles of ships designed to work within the recent price increase from Shapeways. You will find our first “kit” which will need some assembly. Never fear, we are still adding the ship as a one-piece miniature in case you prefer it that way. We are also releasing some of the smaller ships as multiples on a sprue. We hope you find them more affordable.

    The Federation gets two new versions of the Light Tactical Transport, one with a carrier pod and the other with a battle pod. The Battle Tug and their Tug with a carrier pod also show up. Their Light Dreadnought is now available, too. All of these are in both the “regular” (gridded) and “Fed Classic” (smooth body) versions. The Federation also gets its 285 Scale F-4 Ground-Based Fighter, Ground Assault Shuttle, and Heavy Assault Shuttle.

    The Romulans gain their SparrowHawk Gunboat Tender and their SparrowHawk Gunboat Tender+ (these are also known respectively as the SparrowHawk-E and SparrowHawk-E+). The "+" indicates it is a late-war “Cranked Arrow” design in the style of the Starline 2500 Romulan ships.

    The Gorns gain their 285 Scale G-8 “Lizard” Local Defense Fighter.

    The Tholians gain their Neo-Tholian Space Control Ship.

    The Orions get their empire-specific base station.

    The Andromedans are the test bed for sprued smaller ships since the motherships carry multiple ships with them. They get sprues of two and three Cobra Destroyers, two and three Viper Frigates, and a sprue with a Cobra and a Viper.

    The WYNs get their empire-specific base station. They also get their heavy cruiser as a one-piece ship and as a kit.

    In the Omega Octant the Ymatrians get their Rapier Destroyer Leader.
