With 3D printing becoming more and more affordable, it would be foolish not to tap into that resource.
Cryptic and PWE should set up an agreement with an on-demand 3D printing company. We can then buy special 'datachip' from the c-store that upon using, will let us select what ship, toons, or Boff to print.
$20 to $50 worth of zen depending on the size of the print order sounds reasonable.
I know I would love to have a model of my ship sitting on my desk. Would you?
