Signed up for the pre-order thingy... I'll get one. Since no money is being collected why not? the MR I have is of the series one I was thiking thins one would be second pilot... we'll see.
I think they will need to do a lot more than simply cale up the smaller one. it works scaling down moreso than scaling up. Going up you always need to add more detail. The E is not all greeblied up so Its not as bad as it could be if you were scaling up a Star Destroyer, but I doubt they will be able to reuse the plans they have without serious modification, but it might give them a good place to start from... But I have to beleive that they've had this in teh works and in design for a LONG time, just waiting for the right timing to make it reality.
