Gamecraft who make some really nice scenery and models have just released their first 1/285th scale model ship, the USS Independence.
This model is nearly 18″ long and is made from resin. This futuristic ship of the US Navy certainly has potential for modern gaming scenarios, but I also think as such a futuristic looking ship as this it could be used for Epic, the Warhammer 40K game in 1/285th. It looks like it could have been “built” by the Imperial Guard. It costs $80 but at the moment is on an introductory offer of $65.
