Aren`t they Grey Sharks? Purple Sharks were twin seaters.

Not any more, I honestly don't mind this as a retcon. Since the model looks schweet!

great model, i really like it, but I agree, it should be the single seated Grey Shark. It is even similarily chunky as the original 1st ed grey shark, but that one looked like .... hmmm

I really do hope that 2 seaters will appear as well

I like that it has styling similar to other Capitol's vehicles (Orca)

Sorry, but this one I`m not sure about. I thought that they would be more modern versions of the ones in the gallery by Coronasan. If this was an uprated "Great Grey" I`d say wow! This however has me puzzled, have you mixed it up? I`d certainly use it as a real fine Great Gray, but as a shark I wanted more.

I would change nothing in this design. It is perfect. I realy like the pilot, it is only one miniature that has Capitol style.

Maybe they're switching things up and making the Great Grey a two-seater instead? Wasn't it always the heavier of the two anyways?

Either way, that is a stellar design. It keeps the defining features of the nose (that lower intake) and keeps the retro feel of the hull but makes it look a whole lot better than before.

A great overall design.

If it was a redesign of the old Great Grey, I would say it is spot on. The old one was ugly as hell as you can see on the first pic.

I personally would still like to keep the old division of the flyers. Great Greys - single and Purple Sharks twin-seated.

The 1st ed sharks were quite bad in terms of design, but I think the 2nd edition were pretty good. I think I might like them even more than the new ones.

Well this is the new purple shark at least for now. That said the 1st ed PS was ugly as hell and the 2nd ed one was better but was silly as hell in the way the "gunner" magically stayed on by the seat of his pants. I liked the 2nd ed one more than the first but was always wondering how the gunner did not fall off in flight.

Mark from Prodos said they may create a new shark down the line that is a two seat version.
