would be awesome. Ship models should be between 20-30cm so they can be detailed enough but you can still put it in your appartment. Has your team thought about using laser sintering to produce very detailed metal models? Maybe internally hollow with a good support structure.

ah apparently i got so excited about ships finally being fixed in game i didn't read the thing properly .. you want to make physical models you can build and paint etc.... question being why??? how about fixing the in-game models instead....

shakes his head at all this...

T3's need to be versatile so no rigs are necessary ... they should not have OP dps and tank

ABC's should be T2, remove drone assist, separate HAM's and Torps range, -3 HS for droneboats

maybe some of the models designed so that they have room for a Raspberry PI or arduino board in them?

The Machariel.
The size, well big enough to look impressive but try not to hurt people's wallets too much. Also, small enough to fit onto a reasonable bookshelf space. It could have lighting, or not, again the price might be more workable without and it won't make the model bad.

Mostly though, it's a ship that looks cool. And is also not easily identifiable as looking kind of like well-known ships from other sources, it's very Eve. Furthermore I think that whatever ships you choose should be ones where the models look good on their own, so that non-Eve players will be interested. Let's face it, no matter how awesome the Avatar is inside Eve, it's kind of weird-looking. The Machariel just looks badass sitting there.

There's a few other ships that come to mind, like the Omen or the Hyperion, that are similarly distinctive. I think the criterion that it has to look interesting to non-Eve players is important though.

Now recruiting:

It would even be usefull for the next AT and it would impact the crow which is a great ship.

Have you considered setting up a Shapeways shop and selling 3d printed on demand versions of all ships. They can print full color, and depending on the size, can be reasonably priced.

It would make a very satisfying model to put on my desk, bonus if I can get LEDs in the hangar.

Pretty sure they mean they are making actual ship models, not redoing 3D graphics.

Dramiel would be nice, it is quite a fearsome looking ship.

Lots of votes for the Machariel and Vindicator, all good.

Megathron Navy Issue would be cool.

Nyx would be cool.

And a Leviathan.

It's all about how hot my mining lasers get.
