Default Next kit is the Superswift or the Altares?

Now that the Swift project is complete, if I were to make another kit in the same scale (with PE 12" Eagles) what would you like most?

I am starting the poll with the Superswift and the Altares. You may also post your suggestions but please let the Ultraprobe aside as I think other people are more qualified than me to make one.

The Superswift kit would be about 16" long ($$...)
The Altares kit would be about 36" long ($$$$...)

Superswift AND Altares. Probably the Altares would be easier to do (no landig legs). I would go for both of them anyway.

Default Superswift

Superswift would be the best next. A fine sister spaceship to the Eagle and Swift in the SPACE:1999 universe.

Thumbs up Superswift

The Superswift!!!...simply because I would love to see it side-by-side with my 12" Eagles and Swift.

My guess is that the Altares might be more difficult to produce as a kit just because of its size. Seems to be twice as long as the Superswift which might end up in a twice as costly kit too... But feasable anyway As for the Superswift landing gear I think they will be easier than the Swift's but still, I agree they might still be tricky for some modellers

I vote for the Altares. I've never liked the Superswift. (Other than its command module, it's ugly.)

Superswift would seem to be the most logical, Alex. The fact that you are starting on the next project does not mean that the Swift will be out of production shortly, I hope. I would still love one of these once I have some financial stability back in my life.

I've voted for the Super SWIFT, but hoping that the Altares will become project #3

The Altares at 1/96th scale (in scale with an 11" Eagle) is about 3 feet long. It's a bit longer than the Ultraprobe.

The Superswift would be about 34% longer than an Eagle (thanks to Skyfullofstars!) So in scale with PE Eagles the Superswift would be about 16" long.

As a comparison, the Swift I made in the same scale is almost 14" long, which brings a Superswift kit about 2" longer. Nice size.

Alex Dumas, I like the precise analysis of the Superswift 16" length in comparison to the PE Eagle 12" and your brilliant Swift 14"
