A UK company, Spacemodels (galactic@spacemodels.co.uk for enquiries) is going to do the following:
  • WhiteKnightTwo and SpaceShipTwo, 1/100 scale, 17" wingspan, £stg660
  • WhiteKnightTwo and SpaceShipTwo, 1/32 scale, 53" wingspan, £stg3125
  • SpaceShipTwo with remote-controlled wings, 1/16 scale, 28" wingspan, £stg. 9,075
Hmmmm, even though I've booked a flight, I don't get any discount!!!

When I contacted Scaled about doing SS2/WK2, they told me to call Vulcan, VG's licensing firm. Right now that company in England is the only one licensed to build any models so any others being produced might eventually get a C&D. Their reasoning for not letting out the design for licensing back then was it needed to be closer to finished before making the licenses available.

Licensing is really tough on garage kit and small shops because of the money needed up front before you can even sell or advertise a model is substantial.

I don't know how Vulcan is. They could be super protective like Lucasfilms, going after anything. Virgin's a pretty big company, but they don't project an image of something like Boeing or Lucas.
