More Salute previews today – and the first confirmed releases (that is, nailed down with product codes, prices ‘n’ all). This is a series of small merchant starships – probably privately owned vessels, running errands and cargoes (and possibly fugitives) for anyone who stumps up the price of a full load of fuel. Think Traveller Free Traders or, most famously from large and small screen, the Millennium Falcon or the Serenity. There are five designs in all, each around 1″ long, or roughly 75 metres at the 1/3000th scale that we state for our spaceships range.
A new merchant convoy pack contains one each of the previous release of larger merchants (SFS-5010 to -5014) and two each of the new smaller vessels, plus bases.
SFS-5015 – Ixion – £1.00
SFS-5016 – Starlight Envoy – £1.00
SFS-5017 – Random Quasar – £1.00
SFS-5018 – Celestial Rose – £1.00
SFS-5019 – Solar Mariner – £1.00
SFSP-5002 – Merchant Convoy #2 – £22.00
