So .... does this mean it's bigger than the Big Damn Replica version from a couple of years ago? I'm not entirely sure how the ratio works. Is it (one inch) : (measurement given in feet), making it 1 inch on the model equals 124 feet?

It says.

"Ship

27 in long x 18 in wide x 8 in high

68.58 cm long x 45.72 cm wide x 20.32 in high

Stand

21 in long x 31 in wide x 3 in high

78.74 cm long x 53.34 cm wide x 7.62 cm high

Materials

Ship

Polyresin, enamel paints, metalized enamel paints, brass and welded steel supports, MDF, polyjet resin, laser-cut acrylic, photo-etched brass.

Stand

MDF, Translight acrylic, black hammered finish, aluminum plaque."

If that's 1:124 it would make the real serenity something like 279 feet long. I forget, what do the "replica" blue prints, say the full size ship is?

That'sa pretty big toy serenity, but for that price I would want a metal one...... but seeing as I dont' have the money, or the room, for it, no mater what it's made of,
I'll just hope that those that do get one, enjoy it. :)

Absolutely, God-Damned BEAUTIFUL.
I hope Andy likes it, he's the only person who'll own one.

It's a ratio of "sameness." 1 inch on the model equals 124 inches on the "actual ship." The smaller the second number in the ratio gets, the closer in actual size the model becomes. So it's basically 1/124th.

My first thought on reading this was, "at least a dozen folks will probably buy this",
but really, I wonder who will?

Bronson has it right.

A nice trinket for the office.

In all my conversations with Andy there were many cases where he shut down ideas based on profit margins not being high enough and what the market would bear...there's no way the Firefly market can bear such a thing. I love Firefly fans but we tend to be pretty tight with the purse strings!

Seems to me like something he did just to keep the model builders busy and so he has something big to show off.

Also it looks amazing for sure, and I'd love something, but I would never spend $7500 on it especially with QMx on the receiving end!
