Received my ships, magazines and 16-issue folder in the mail today in rural Southern Illinois. A few notes: Bases are quite sturdy with some heft to them. Very good quality base. Floating mounting stand is practically invisible from a distance. Models themselves are heavier than I thought they'd be based on the size. Even as small as the Enterprise-Refit is, the die-cast saucer has got some good weight to it. Despite the rather simplistic paint job on the Refit, it's still a pretty good looking model. I do think it needs a few darker or blacken highlights. Wasn't the rear of the nacelles darker grey or black? One odd thing I noticed about the D is that the top few decks (A & B Decks) are flatter on the model than I thought they'd be. I will be posting pictures on my Facebook page in the Star Trek Starships Collection folder. I'll add a link to it in my Sig when I get the chance later today.
Sweet! Hopefully mine will be arriving shortly. I live in Illinois, too, about an hour or so from Chicago.
