“This highly-detailed, hand-painted ship model has a wingspan of 8 inches and measures 4.5 inches from nose to engine exhaust (roughly 1/129th scale),” says the Web site. “The F-302 comes with a 9″x6″ diorama modeled after the flight deck on Earth’s first deep-space battleship, the Prometheus. When mounted on it’s stand (the fighter can be removed), the F-302 is displayed on the verge of take off with gears down (but just starting to retract) and hovering over the flight deck.”
The design of the F-302 was introduced with the X-302 in SG-1‘s Season Six episode, “Redemption, Part 1.” The experimental craft was used to evacuate the Antarctic Stargate from Earth while it was under attack by Anubis. The first F-302s entered service a year later. They were first seen in Season Seven’s “Fallen,” and later en masse in the battle over Antarctica in “Lost City.” They have been used in numerous episodes of Atlantis as well.
Quantum Mechanix expects the first replicas to be made available by December 15. The company specializes in merchandise for Battlestar Galactica and “Serenity,” as well as numerous science fiction classics.
