Hawker Industries Carrier Group Unboxed!

Recommended Posts

I received the new ships today so I took a few photos to share with you guys :)

 

Regent Class Carrier:

Love the view from the front :D

 

Shields comparison (they are indeed smaller than the metal ones):

SRS compared to Terran Alliance SRS:

Stalwart Class Escort compared to Endeavour Class Frigate:

The Stalwart has style:

One more ships comparison:

The Carrier cast is perfect (I can barely see any mould line!) but unfortunately my Escorts have some noticeable miscasts (main problem is missing engines) - will get in touch with Spartan about that and hopefully they'll be able to sort it out for me :)

I have spent some time studying the pictures above. This ship is an Ugly Duckling to me. Once painted, it might improve and change my view, but I am not rushing to buy one of those....

I agree

But either buy it or convert a carrier

In general I don't think SG does FsA carrier well

Thanks for the pics !
I still can't wrap my head around that carrier yet lookswise.  Not really liking the 'shovel" prow. HATE the shields, just put hate. Maybe there's a way to stick some shields on the new Terran carrier convincingly , it looks fairly Hawky as is.

I would love the carrier, any will still pick up the box, but it's held back for me because of the molded shield array. It's a god send from a transport perspective since it's not likely to come off when you travel, which is probably the biggest issue with Hawker, but it just doesn't look right to me. They're too small but still overly blocky so don't have the sleek design that makes the pronounced arrays work on the Tyrant. I like the ship overall, but out of the box those arrays are just killing the mood as it were. Will have to see it painted up to really pass judgement

The SRS tokens I love, especially the smalls. I was hesitant with the larges when I saw the render, but after seeing the actual model I really dig them. Nice, bulky, and powerful looking. Assuming a wing is like how it's organized in Commonwealth countries today and is 3 or 4 squadrons of 20 craft (or even if a wing is a squadron), seeing about 40 or more of those things on a bombing run towards you would be unnerving to say the least.

The Stalwart is just a good looking escort and probably my favorite escort so far in FSA visually.

I've received replacement Escorts from Spartan and they are perfect :D
