We’re Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc., and for decades we have manufactured the games and starship miniatures of the Star Fleet Universe under our contract with Paramount. We’re now offering some of our miniatures and some new designs on Shapeways.
The starships of the Star Fleet Universe come in three scales:
3788 Scale (1/3788) is the classic scale that makes the USS Enterprise three inches long.
3125 Scale (1/3125) provides larger ships that some gamers prefer.
285 Scale (1/285) is used primarily for small ships such as fighters, bombers, and shuttles. Many of these can also be found in Omni Scale where they are much smaller and less detailed, but good for using with larger starships.
Omni Scale is a range of miniatures that cannot be done in either of the above scales because they would be too big (a starbase would be bigger than a dinner plate) or too small (fighters would be smaller than the head of a pin). Some "General" cargo ships are done in Omni Scale to reduce cost as cargo ships are really big compared to warships.
In many cases we offer starships in both 3788 and 3125 scales.
