Does anyone know what the exact scale of the new ships is?

Recommended Posts

I'd love to build some small Imperial capships to go with the up-coming CR-90, like the Imperial Customs Corvette and Assassin-class Corvette. I figure by the time I'm done the new ships will be in stock and read to order.

 

The thing is, I'm a stickler for scale, and the CR-90 is not 1:270. Does anyone know what the new scale is?

 

 

EDIT: Based on the preview image, comparing the distance between the two bases and the distance the front and back poke out from the ends of the bases, I'd say it's 1:350 scale. I'll probably operate on this until I actually get my hands on the real deal.

During the In-Flight Report at Gen Con 2013, out of the mouth of Christian Petersen, FFG CEO, the new scale to be used for transport and capital ships is the "feels right" scale - which he explained is not going to be static, but will likely change for each and every release. Probably not what you were hoping to hear, but looks like that's what it's going to be.

Here's a Linky; hope it works.

It's for the fabulous resin Rebel Runner kit in 1/350 scale. The model is 18" long.

With that in mind, a 1/270 model would be oh, roughly 22;" and we know it isn't that big of a scale.

EDIT: At first I was inclined to go with BigDogg, but looking again at the photo I have to agree with Millenium Falsehood that the Corvette looks to be more like 15". That's awesome! Wouldn't that make it somewhere around 1/450 or something? You Wizzos do the math for us - based on a 15" ship and a 16" ship.
