    Not as far as I'm aware, the smallest scale I've seen widely available is 1/7000 which is for naval wargaming, at that scale even a large battleship is typically less than 2" long. If there are any other kits or miniatures at that sort of scale, they're very unusual and almost certainly for other sci-fi spaceships.

    It would exist if a model were made at that size ;-)

    I didn't say that. ;-)

    Yes it would, but I still wouldn't say it would exist in the normal course of things, as in it wouldn't be one of the common scales used for model-making purposes or for war-games/collectable miniatures which tend to be pretty standardised across the industry, partly because model-makers/gamers/collectors tend to find a scale they like best and work within that and partly because if you're displaying or gaming with a number of different kits/pieces the preference tends to be for them to all be in the same scale, within a certain range or type. There are obviously exceptions and I'm obviously making sweeping generalisations there, but if there was a 1/15000 Red Dwarf, you'd be unlikely to find many other comparable kits in the same scale, even a Star Wars Star Destroyer would be relatively tiny at that scale.

    It's one of the things that's held back 1/48 scale for armoured fighting vehicles for years and still does, because relatively few companies make relatively few kits in that scale compared to for example 1/35, other companies and model makers have been slow to adopt it in spite of it being a commonly used scale for aircraft.

    A selection of RD ringtones and alerts.

    I desperately want Lister saying, "Oi, smeg 'ed. You've got a text message." as my text message alert.

    A rubber kryten mask would be cool.

    What about a Space Corps Directives Manual?

    Wouldn't exactly be merchandise but would be great to see some classic episodes in a cinema screening. Perhaps even with themed props around the auditorium.

    Sounds cool. The Prince Charles cinema in London would be ideal for this.

    Would be a bit of a drive from York. Though I once drove a similar distance to see a 2001 screening on the big screen.

    Maybe they should combine this sort of thing with DJ?

    I would love these. I want them for Red Dwarf and one other show and keep an eye out everytime I go to my local game stores in hope they have been added.

    This. Absolutely this. I'm stunned they haven't been made yet, given the sheer number of different characters they've done. I don't particularly like the style, but I'd buy the heck out of Red Dwarf ones. Especially if they made a skutter!

    They should definitely make a Talkie Toaster.
