Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I got my Galor and Jem'Hadar ship yesterday, too. It was faster than normal.

Have to say, the coloring of the Galor is way too "brown mustard" compared to every other version of the Galor I've had (micro machine, Furuta) which was, well, gold mustard? It really threw me.

I think the cover of the magazine juxtaposed with the ship itself says it best:


Coloring is just... really off, imho.

As for the Jem'Hadar, I think it too could have been more purple in tone? But it's not as glaring and "Woah, wait, that's wrong" as the Galor's coloring.

Was surprised by the flatness of the Jem'Hadar ship. It always looked more stout in it's beam. I guess it's all in the angle they show it from though, as if you hold it at the proper angle it looks just right. It's one of those things you can't know about a ship until you hold it in your hands though. Which is why I love collecting Trek ships! Because you can get a feel for them in so many new ways that looking at images doesn't offer.
