Now I noticed someone is building a large Chandley-class model..
Looks very close the 1: 3900 scale miniature from 30 years ago..
There is even work on another large FASA model, the Klingon D-10
Hats off to whomever is doing these kitbashes.
I love that the FASA Star Trek universe is not gone and forgotten, and there are tons of people out there who dearly love it like I do. It takes a lot of work to convert to a Chandley-class at this scale.. What will he do with it afterward, I wonder, as it's so big..
At least every time someone will ask about the large Chandley, the modeler or owner will have a chance to explain FASA and such.
I grew up with Star Trek since watching it in the 1970s, but it was Star Trek II, III and IV and simultaneously, FASA's literature, that cemented a certain love for it. I can only now think of the "true" Star Trek as FASA's..
Some other modelers obviously think the same...
