First, let me say that I'm a little off. You see, I will not buy or play
with any ship that didn't actually appear in the show. So right off the
I returned the Poseidon my wife bought me. As for the B5 Station model,
are correct. I would not have bought this mini for myself if I had know
large it wasn't.

Now Bruce at AoG is saying they will make a Narn J'Stat station mini
fleet action sized T'Loth wings. So this station will also be way small.
However, he did say you could special order five full size T'Loth wings
you want to kit bash your own station, cost, I think he said $20 US. So
would go the kit bash route.

Over all, I would say AoG has some growing pains. The last few mini's
have released have been a very mixed bag. The Shadow and Vorlon units
very, very good. As does the Brakiri Cruiser and the Vree Saucer.
all of the restocking orders I have seen were pretty crappy. The EA
box, while a good deal was very poor quality. Also the last batch of
Stars I bought and the T'Loths had serious casting defects. Perhaps AoG
needs to take a look at quality control.
