I haven't really had much time to do anything hobby-related so far this year, but I wanted to get back in the groove, hence this new thread.
I've wanted to build a fleet of Star Wars ships for some time now, and was really impressed with the scratch built 1/1000th ships on here, but they are a little too large scale for what I had in mind - I'd like to build a fleet of capital ships, and so I've opted for the slightly smaller 1/2256 scale.
This might seem like an odd scale, but it is fast becoming a fertile source of garage kits - it is also the scale of the Revell Venator kit (now unfortunately OOP but still available on fleabay for increasingly silly prices).
I've added in for scale purposes a Falcon, blockade runner and transport vessel (all 3 were made by Anigram, once upon a time)- fighters are tiny, but there are people on shapeways that make them.
My little project will be set just after the Battle of Endor, in some backwater system - the local Imperial Governor will have access to a real mix of old and "current" vessels. For example, I see no reason why the Empire wouldn't still have aging Venators kicking around somewhere (think how many modern navies have ships that are 25 years old, or more), and I'm sure some will have fallen into the hands of the rebels....
Odyssey Slipways have also been a good source of smaller craft - they made the light republic cruiser, and the tiny LAAT in this photo - I've also added an x-wing and tie interceptor, along with the Anigram vessels.
That's everything for now - will add more as I go.
