I would say Ferox/Vulture

I think you should have the model not assembled and not painted and make in the kit the option to have the tech1 tech2 or navy version of the ship also by painting the ship you could make it look like what you want and it could give inspiration for the ship painting program. Also over time there's noting stoping you from having more model. And personally I would like to have model with great quality and detail so he model look more like a collection item than a toy.

Would be awesome that you can customize your fit the way you customize a Proteus ingame. I already have the poster of the Proteus and I would love to own this as a shipmodel. Size should be close to the Megathron Model.

This, but Legion.

I have no interest in doing my own painting warhammer style, would rather they come ready to display. If you do include lighting of some kind, I'd love to see it possible to daisy chain models together, so I can run a single USB power cord up to a row of them.

All capitals.

Especially the Naglfar, Revelation, Nyx, Wyvern, Providence and Obelisk.

If you're gonna post here thinking your idea is the greatest thing since bacon and that it will save EVE and possibly all humankind with it, you're gonna have a bad time.

Good lord that is a hard one to decide, on one hand I love the way my Rail tengu looks but the Megathron hull is my favorite hull in
the entire game. Don't get me wrong, I would throw money at you for just about any ship you make.

any of the T3's (please not the proteus :/), with all the subsystems shipped ready for self-assembly would be awesome. Also please paint them before shipping, I know that it's something some people like to do, but there's also a lot of people with bad painting skills out there, so unpainted versions seperately would probably be a bonus but please don't sell them exclusively :/

Lightning on the antennas(?) (basically where the lights are at in game) would be great but I reckon if it's already self-assembly of a ton of parts lightning installed in them would be rather hard to do.

Would prefer pre-made but can deal with putting together a model.

Same size as the RIfter USB

or Slepnir - w/e - it's a classic. An Eve workhorse. The people's hull. Much of null sec was built on the backs of thousands of shattered Canes.

Same colors as they are in game.

Not sure about size.

Now, I'm hoping they'll all be of the same scale:class? While I don't mind if my Rifter model is the same size as my Nyx model, I will be irate if same said Rifter model is considerably smaller or larger than my Nemesis...

As for which ships? EVERY. LAST. ONE. Gotta catch 'em all!

I apologies for not simply answering your question directly but when I say all the ships, I mean ALL the ships. I will purchase EVE models in any format. I've been waiting a long time for this.

Since the beginning, Nyx has always been my favorite model.
Vindicator would be second choice. Color Specific, with green lights.
Ditto for the Abaddon/lights.
I like the Geddon, not sure I want my girl friend to have access to that though...

Stiletto and Vagabond are cool. Kinda fragile for a model maybe.

I would like any ship, but I would like it to be painted since I suck at painting miniatures of all scales. It would be cool to have both, a miniature-game scale, as well as big ones that are there for decorations.

I would love a Harpy, a Vengeance or a Sleipnir... Those ships are just really good looking....

This is aweseome feedback, there is obviously a very strong interest in ship models. Someone asked what kind of sizes and prices we are looking at, and the answer is that we are looking at different parts of the spectrum. We want to provide something affordable, which still stands up to quality. And then we also want to do something for those that really want a massive, huge pimped out ship with no holds barred. When looking at the market and other major sci-fi properties that have done ship models, we can see that these ubermodels are actually quite popular and can really tie a room together.

2 Mackinaw + 1 Orca as Mining Set



Solid Models, prepainted, size around 30 cm.

I don't even mine, but a small mining fleet with selfbuild asteriods, some fancy light and a nice background in my display case... MY DREAM!

For sizing, I'd like it to be a decently detailed model, but not too large. A 1/100 scale perhaps. Baked in lighting is not important, and LED's, while cool, would drive up the price too far to be reasonable for me to buy.

Also, please have this model be fitted with Torpedo launchers (So the launchers are showing). It really brings it all together.

Provide your answers on our forum, and for cleanliness sake, can you print the name of the ship in the first line of your reply, and then add further discussion in a preceding line?

They want all comments on a preceding line? This means the last line should be the model? I'm not sure, just trying to follow instructions.
