Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

The Enterprise J is going to be based on the first Drex design, the Drex Files isn't around anymore to get the CGI render shots he took but there is a model to use.

The ISS Enterprise's are very rare in any form, and all renditions of the TOS Enterprise tend to be the 2266 version.

As for the Ring Ship, it would be hard to make and there is already a die cast model of it coming out for Into Darkness after it's appearance in it (the model I mean).

The Enterprise-A is quite a while away, so they likely won't go down the Diamond Select route, the A will have a better modelling job. The TMP model looks exactly like the one from the previous, failed run.

But there are a heck of a lot of Enterprises in the collection if they make all of them.

NX-01
1701 TOS
1701 JJ (subscriber gift)
1701 TMP
1701-A
1701-B
1701-C
1701-D
1701-D AGT (subscriber gift)
1701-E
1701-J
Yeah, I'm hoping that the -A model will be remodeled or at least heavily repainted. It definitely needs the Azteking.

And as for all these Enterprise models being made, I have no doubt that they will. The only one that is even doubtful in my mind is the -J.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Jay is already on the list and not all that far down it.

I hope Sisko's Bajoran lightship gets released... and gets called Baraka like it was in the episode script.

An -J model would be awesome, but it's unlikely...

This one? (This was the one he referred to as the "approved" version)

True. One of the reasons the 2254/Mirror version of the ship is in some ways more interesting. And, hell, if they're going to do both the 2271 refit *and* the Enterprise-A, they could certainly do both the 2266 ship and the (slightly darker) Mirror ship.

I don't think we need a ton of variations on a single ship, not when there are so many ships that have never had a proper miniature made of them before.

For the 1701, I think the version we saw for most of TOS' run, plus the movie refit is enough.

Weren't there two different configurations of the nacelle aft ends in the original NCC-1701 -- one with a dome and one without? The configuration changed after "The Cage" was filmed, IIRC.

ETA: This site has a good list of the differences: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ar.../tos_ships.htm

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

There were three - the grille came first (Cage), then there was the version with the rectangular greeble covering over the grille (WNMHGB?), followed by the ball for the full production run.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Three.
Cage - 2245
WNMHGB - 2263
Series - 2266-69

Several times during the series they use footage of the WNMHGB version of the ship departing (aft view) which shows the older nacelles, but most show the correct 2266 configuration. Stock footage and all that.

And yup, SoM, that's the version of the Jay they'll be bringing out sometime next year. Drexler rendered several views of the ship that show the underside and aft of the ship too.

And today on their Facebook page they posted some photos of the finalised model of the Thunderchild that arrived at their office this morning.

She's the one model I want most out of the collection so it's pretty awesome to finally see her.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

The Thunderchild looks awesome! Yeah, I am now fully convinced that the refit Enterprise was an aberration hold-over from the previous limited run. The quality of these newer ships far exceeds it. Personally, if I were the Eaglemoss CEO, I would have hired a batch of high-school summer interns to paint the front of each model to make it look more accurate before they were released. Yeah, it would have cost a little bit of extra money, but it wouldn't have been that big a deal. Oh, well...no matter. Looking forward to these. Hopefully we'll start seeing them here in the 'States next month.

Another very nice ship. My hopes for seeing Titan of the Luna class eventually are still high.
