Does anyone think this is a possible contender for future inclusion into X-Wing?

It's not unattractive to my mind (I'm not overly fond of the design of most EU ships) certainly not suffering from low poly count designs that earlier Star Wars video game ships suffered from...

I know technically it predates the era our game is set, but so does the HWK...

I measured it out once, it would have to be like one of the newer big style ships as it is almost 2 time bigger than the MF. But I think it could be possible soon. It wasn't really an option when I was thinking of designing a custom because of the size of the ship. But with the new larger ships we might just see a few decent customs at least.

Length
RS vs MF
65 meters vs 34.37 meters

I'd think that at nearly twice the length of the Falcon it wouldn't work well on the standard medium ship base. The Falcon is what 7 or so inches long, so the RS would be a bit over a foot, which is starting to get into the size of the new CR-90 they're working on...

But if you were to use the same scale as what they're doing the CR-90 and Transport in, it would be a bit small.

How "cannon" are those dimensions? The wing tips/engines look like they're take from (oversized) TIE Interceptors. If those were the same size as Interceptor wings/engines, the Shadow would be about Falcon sized and could fit on a medium base. Besides, the cockpit would be about the size of the Y-wing cockpit...

That's what size is listed on Wookieepedia. They got the stats from Hasbro's Titanium-series Rogue Shadow packaging.

If you look at this image... http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:RogueShadowFloorPlan.png

You'll see that the 65m size seems pretty likely.

Not really ... That's early concept art (and at 35M is Falcon sized)

This is it:

I'd be curious to know where the size number comes from too. The cockpit's interior shots look about the size of the Falcon, and the overall ship doesn't look that big. The capacity stats for both passengers and cargo are much smaller than the Lambda. It honestly just doesn't seem like it should be nearly that big. Doesn't mean it's not, of course, but it wouldn't be the first time Wookieepedia turned out to be wrong about ship sizes.

That's the size Hasbro listed on the model they released.

Time for a size ret-con. One of those at the size of the Falcon would be awesome.

this is form the videogame ...Wookipedia report a wrong lenght of this ship , if compared with the Lambda Shuttle (20 meters) the Rogue Shadow in proportion is 30-35 meters and will fit perfectly the large base for the game
