Today saw the arrival of four more ships, acquired from Ebay.
has the same scale as the Furuta model but is longer. It reminds me of the comparison between the basic Intrepid
class and Mark Rademaker's slipstream drive refit. The EM wins in detail and overall look but, as has been noted elsewhere, the ventral saucer section lacks in detail.
I applied glue to the connector between main hull and saucer section of Defiant
because it felt wonky. Excellent model, even with the mirror universe arrowhead.
is something I've been waiting for, for ages, a medium sized Romulan warbird. I do have the AMT model, which is descent but too large to handle comfortably in one hand. I can't wait for the other Romulan ships in the series.
Last but not least, the Stargazer
model succeeds in magically turning one of the ugliest ST designs into eye candy. While the trimmed saucer may be insufficiently accurate to the source, it is a definite improvement visually. Good thing I didn't skip that model!
