1/1400 Scale Wish List

Post by novahobbies » Sat Jul 09, 2016 4:33 pm

I know that the heydey of 1/1400 scale models is slowly passing (SOB) but I thought I'd start this thread for people to comment about what 1/1400 scale models they would still love to see come out as kits. Call it a random whim, if you will.....maybe the popular kit makers will take a look and see if there's anything they're willing to do! :lol:

Here's the list of ships I'd still love to see in 1/1400 scale:
  • Belknap class (Anyone who knows me knows that OF COURSE this will be on the top of the list!)
    New Vulcan ringship concept / possible Axanar ship
    USS Bonaventure
    Surya Class
    Lynx class timeship
    ANYTHING that Bill Krause has been making lately (Shangri-la, Sentinel, etc)!
    Watchtower station (Why not? Kids can dream!)
    T'pau type Vulcan freighter
    DS9 Xhosa Freighter
    Bajoran ships
    SS Raven...it would be small but neat to have!
    And since Starcrafts mentioned it....YES I'd love to see a Springfield!
There are others than this that used to be available that I'd love to see again. The Cardassian Galor and Kelvin classes, for instance, would be fine to see available one more time, as would new models for the Nebula ships - both the AWACS and the weapons variants.

What about you? What would YOU like to see?

Anything from the TNG and Post-TNG timeframe would still be good candidates for 1/1400 scale. 1/1000 is just too big for most of these ships.

I would love to see Starcrafts do the USS Aventine from the books. That would top my wish list!

A comeback of the Wolf 359 ships. I think Multi Verse Models has the old Ravenstar molds/masters for those.

Some things from Star Trek Online would be interesting too:

Odyssey class Enterprise-F (though maybe too big for 1/1400 (28 in :shock: ) 1/2500 would probably be more reasonable)
Avenger class
Chimera class
Rapier Class
Tempest Class
Trident Class
Klingon Maht ha Raptor
Klingon Vor Kang cruiser
Some of the Romulan stuff would be too big though :(

Ascenscion.

I forgot about the Menahga, Ascension, and Movie era Federation! Yes please! With the correct extended secondary hull on the Federation also. :D

Got links for the Mitannic, Balson, and Ariel?? I've not seen those. I know the Ariel is supposed to be a shuttlecarrier, but no idea what it looks like.

I should really retcon one of my 1/1400 scale Akyazis so it's the Akula design with the underslung pod.

Since I'm wishin' here:

The Axanar-ish Yorktown:

THe Xenophon:

And from Ex-Astris-Scientia:
The Mercury class pre-TOS frigate*,

The Lincoln class (looks like a Daedalus but bigger and...well, cooler)

The Korolev class


*I actually have all the basic parts set up for an unrealized Novahobbies model of the Mercury class before I closed up shop. I shelved the parts, but may come back and finish detailing the hull (grid lines) and make a mold of it for a limited few models. I had really been going through a TOS era kick at the time, what with Starcrafts releasing all their Franz Josef items.

The 1/1400 Bonaventure is now back on the table. Can't say when I'll be getting it out, but should be by the end of the year. I've had the pattern now for about 2 years, but there was a problem with it that I didn't like, which is the reason for the delay. Most notably the weak pylons, but I think I've got that covered now.
