Eaglemoss Discovery/Shenzhou

Postby el gato » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:02 pm

Does anyone have these? Do the boxes or instruction have the supposed dimensions of these ships? I know there have been comparison shots made by fans of their supposed size, but I'm looking for the actual dimensions

I have the Shenzhou and the collector's magazine puts the length at 423 meters.

Was thinking of getting these until I saw the prices on Ebay......

Presently being listed for upwards of £60.00 each. And then listing the magazine separately for £10 each.....

Might as well be asking for a direct contribution to their retirement fund :D

That's the secondary market though. The prices per ship are lower if you're a subscriber. I am still hoping one of us is a subscriber

Utilized some Google-fu and managed to find a scan of the Eaglemoss magazine for the Disco. According to it, A Crossfield Class ship is supposed to be 750.5 meters long

Wonder how long before they release a Disco-Prise.

All this talk about Disco - is it coming back?

I'm not a fan of the "bigger is better" camp of spaceship sizes. It's just to unrealistic/unbelievable unless there is a justifiable reason for it.

Ricky at Madman has one already drawn up. You'll have to check out his facebook page.* The size of the DSC-prise is still up in the air.


* I've given up logging into Fb for Lent, so I can't post a direct link
