A lot of people on the EVE forums spotted this link about a bunch of pictures of EVE ships that have been made into scale models. The link is to the Chinese version of the EVE site, and appears to show two entirely awesome models, one for the Raven (“faction version” according to one pic) and one for the Megathron.
I think back years ago when the first guy suggested on the EVE forums that CCP should really push for model or model kits of some kind. The designs of EVE ships are amazing, and really lend themselves well to collectables like models. Nothing ever surfaced though.
Serenity Steele had this to say in the resulting thread on the EVE forums:
Very nice. I doubt they’re one-offs, because why would you create a plastic injection mould for only producing 2 stands.
I’m inclined to agree. It seems like a lot of work to make just a couple of prototypes if you’re not going to go all the way.
So what do you think? A future item for the EVE store? If so, what would you buy? All of them or just your favorite ships?
UPDATE: Did you guys see this? 😀
