Voyager three ship set-Maquis ship scale

Post by andyh » Sat Mar 11, 2017 12:51 am

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but has anyone ever done the math on the Maquis ship from the three ship set? Is it accurate for 1/1400 scale?

I know there was a fighter variant and the bigger ship that Chakotay commanded, but does it match up in any form to 1/1400?

Did a quick Google search and didn't find anything.

According to what I can make from Ex Astris Scientia it seems to be on scale or close enough. You'll find the three Maquis ship variants discussed about halfway down the page here:

Hi!

So the english Memory-Alph site wrote that the Maqius ship is 68,5 m log. The reference is the official Starship collection.

It means: in 1400 scale the maquis ship should be ~ 4,9 cm long. The mini kit ship is 1:1276 sclae...

But the main problem @ Voyager and DSP CGI and studio models is: it was not importand enogh (for the producer team) how big are the ships in "truth" and in scale to each other... :cry: :cry: :cry: .

Greeting,

Yes, trying to find a definitive "actual" size is often a problem on non hero ships.

I have at least something to work on now guys, thanks heaps ;)
