USS Grissom/Bird of Prey Preorder
« on: December 16, 2017, 10:18:26 pm »
You can now preorder the 1/1000 USS Grissom and Bird of Prey combo pack at Cultman. It's neat that Polar Lights is doing the USS Grissom, but 1/1000 scale is going to be pretty small.

I wonder if the BOP is going to be the right scale or too big.

I think both of them are 1/1000 scale.

The BOP will be pretty small then if they scaled it right.

Pretty small, yes, but I really like the idea of putting them next to the other 1/1000 starships.

I like that idea too.  I like seeing things in scale to each other.

Super dumb question - is the BOP "new" or just a re-packaged version of the one found in the Adversary set?  I build that one (it's nice, but small), but I don't think it every specified the scale.

Hopefully it's a larger version - in which case I can again build it AND the Grissom!

Cheers!

The BoP in the Adversary set (the one with the Ferengi) is 3.25 inches long. That seems about the right length for a 1/1000 BoP so it might be the same one.

According to the blog post on Polar Lights, it's a new mold, snap fit (the Adversaries mold was definitely not snap fit), and slightly larger.

Then I'm IN!  Wonder if it's a "Bandai" snap fit (which is well engineered).  Regardless, good news!

Cheers!
