Uh, Joe?  

Even these Whitestar models which, by all accounts, are rather nice? -> directory -> spaceship -> Anubis
(sorry, but the site is CGI, so a direct link won't work - I tried!)

Shows a picture of a Whitestar, captioned:

	anuws01 - Advanced Technology Cruiser 
       The Advanced Technology Cruiser is based
       on the CGI model used in the hit TV series
       BABYLON 5. Includes a detailed painting
       diagram. Authorized by Foundation Imaging.
        	1/650 Scale, Resin 
        List Price: $200.00, Our Price: $186.00 

I take it there's a difference between "license" and "authorize"?

"Who loves models and wants'em soonest, but at $200..."

ps.  Its a blast going back through the series catching all the

Foundation Imaging does not have the authority to license or authorize anything
of this nature.
