Today we have a preview of the Alexander 3D Model for the Jovian faction that will be part of the upcoming Jovian Wars Kickstarter (tentative start date February 15th, 2017). The attached image shows the basic Alexander and with its Habitat ring section added, plus a complete parts breakdown. The new spaceship models will be 1/4000 scale with the larger parts cast in high quality grey resin, smaller parts like the weapons and engine fins will be cast in pewter, and the stand will be laser etched and cut clear acrylic base with clear acrylic post. The base that the 3D Model is show on is 3" long by 1.5" wide.
We are making all the new ships modular with standard connection points between the parts. Easy assembly is our goal with Engines, Cargo, and Habitat sections have a large peg in the front to match holes in the back of the Cargo, Habitat and Forward Hull sections. We have also added small centered pilot holes on all the large pegs and in the holes for easy drilling and pinning of the parts. Plus we have standard pegs on the sides of the forward hull to mount weapons which have holes in their underside. We even have these same standard pegs on the inside and outside of the habitat rings player to customize their ships with small cargo containers and other parts, that are planned as stretch goals during the Kickstarter. We hope you all like modular design and planning that has gone into the new ships, let us know what you think in the comments below and "Like" the post to show your approval. We'll be previewing more 3D Models of the Ships in the weeks leading up to the Kickstarter launch.
