Any pics of the Studio Scale Bird of Prey?

Postby 8ird » Thu Jun 05, 2014 11:28 pm

Any of you attendees got to see the Studio Scale Bird of Prey by Steve Neisen that was supposedly on display?

Impressions, Pics, Vids... anything is more than welcome!

Cheers!

I saw it, but was running through the area to get back to my table. No photos on my part. Very impressive, but not suitable for most homes as the wingspan alone was at least 3, maybe 4 feet.

Wonkin' huge, with at least a 3 to 4 foot wingspan, full illumination, a stand that was probably a 1.5-inch pipe, and a fully illuminated bridge display board. I didn't ask the price, because I am guessing it was in the "Several thousands of dollars" range.

I would have gotten a photo, but I was more interested in tracking down Mike Salzo (who was at the Nice-N Models table with the KBoP from time to time) so I could collect my 1:2000 Galactica kit from him.

The link to their Facebook page below includes a photo of someone standing behind the Bird of Prey. That'll give you an idea of the size of this beast.

Even I have my limits when it comes to models. :shock:

Well thanks anyways and just wanted to let you know that I've found what I was looking for in case others are interested:

I'm with you guys about the size of the thing but then again it's not easy to find an accurate model of the BoP in other scales. The WARP 1:200 looks very interesting and would be my preferred size but it does seem to be out of production and not available anywhere.
Well, maybe I can find a fire sale for a completed build somewhere down the line.
Fingers crossed!

My understanding after talking with the guys at the table is that this is NOT a model kit, but is a custom-made, professionally-built, studio scale replica. It comes to you fully finished, which explains the price tag.

Also, there are only five being offered, and two are already spoken for. I read that on one of the websites, but I can't remember which one.
