Is there a problem with 3D prints closely based on the originals? Since GW doesn't sell them anymore and stuff

Guys, a quick question: we've had a teeny tiny version of the new Elites Eagle gunship done for starship scale gaming but is it too small next to the fighters. Should we upscale it a bit?

Felis Class stealth ships are used by Novan Elite forces for special missions and deep recon operations and carry special ordinance amongst their arsenal. A small reasonably well armoured vessel the Felis relies heavily on its stealth technology to evade detection. A black ops ship more than a front line combat vessel it nevertheless has proven its worth in many campaigns the length and breadth of Commonwealth space.

Set contains:

4 x Felis stealth ship hulls
4 x optional wings sets

Model length: 31mm

Are these going to be available any time soon? These little dudes would be ideal to finish off my Imperial fleet. Just need to find some Chaos looking ones then.... hint.. hint.
Not sure yet what the ETA is going to be. Vanguard Miniatures are interested to know whether they should launch of small crowd funder for the escorts and ordnance. If you're active on Facebook, please let them know over here. :)

The Panthera class Heavy Frigate is the workhorse of the Novan Elite fleets. Heavily armed and armoured, its various weapon configurations allow it to fulfil many different void combat roles.
No matter its broadside configuration, the Panthera’s basic armament includes two heavy twin or optionally triple linked dorsal mounted turrets and two pairs of prow torpedo tubes. Its broadsides allow for different types of weapon systems which can be changed whilst in dock due to it’s modular design.

Most commonly used are weapons batteries, more than capable of tearing huge chunks out of enemy vessels many times its own size. Another popular configuration for the Panthera is to fit it with launch bays, allowing the heavy frigate to carry several squadrons of Javelin fighters and Pilum bombers. In order to protect other ships of the fleet from waves of ordnance and enemy fighters the Panthera is sometimes also configured with broadside turret platforms capable of projecting a withering volume of defensive fire.

This set now contains the components necessary to build the Panthera II refit version as an option.

set contents:

2 x Panthera hulls
2 x Wing sets with adaptors (forward and aft)
2 x Twin turret broadsides
2 x Triple turret broadsides
2 x Launch bay broadsides
2 x Gun deck broadsides

Model is 52mm long, bases not included.

While trawling for other things, just noticed that over at Shapeways, "Wargames 3D Print" offer a set of [too large to be escorts I THINK, but scale is uncertain] BFG ships that are directly modeled on the escort ships that carry the explorers in WHQ: Blackstone Fortress.

For example, here is the Kroot escort.

Their actual sets of escorts from BFG seem to run around $15 for 6, so these being around twice as much for half as many makes me think they are not, in fact, escort scale.
