Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I'm pleased to see the Steamrunner, Saber and Norway class ships on the planned list of 70 issues, I hope they get confirmed soon, but I'd also really love to see a Pasteur or preferably Daedalus class ship at some point too.

With all of the above that should cover all the main Federation starships, without getting into the really obscure ones. Centaur class would be nice but may be asking a bit too much, especially since they would have to somehow fill 20 pages on it!

^^^ Centaur is already planned (scroll down to the bottom). It will probably take a while, but I am looking forward to that one too.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Got my Akira, Reliant, and Ent-D dedication plaque today. All three are very nice. My only gripe is the display stand for the Reliant. The clear stand is very loose in the black base, and on the ship itself. That thing is gonna fall off constantly. But as far as the models go? I think they're the best looking Fed models yet. Although I thought the Akira was supposed to have Aztecking.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Out of all of the models, the Reliant is definitely the most loose. I thought the Defiant was also pretty loose. The stand doesn't connect with the ship very well at all.

And others, like the Voyager, have the opposite problem where the stand doesn't fit into the base very well.

Oh, well. Small issues with an almost perfect line of models. I can live with them.

Obviously you either didn't read or just didn't look. But lo and behold, someone else posed a link.

So, just go my replacement DS9, two of them in fact. So now I have three of them. One of them is going to become Empok Nor.

I presume you're talking about the retractable/deployable weapons? IE, the weapons that aren't ever seen on DS9 unless and until they're needed and thus activated and thus exposed.

While it would be awesome for them to be shown, it makes perfect sense why that wouldn't be. They're only visible 0.1% of the time: when the station is in battle. So basically a handful of times since we first saw them in Way of the Warrior.

If we're going to lament things like that, we'd have to lament the lack of actual docking clamps and runabout landing pads that lower and raise and a lot of other little tiny things too...
Hey, that would be great!

I know the photon torpedo launchers extended, but the circular base is permanent. Just thought they could be seen.

Oh it's there. It's just tiny. Those weapons are housed on the little tiny outward-facing, uh, pylons (?) on the runabout docking ring area. I just picked my DS9 up and looked and you can see a little circle dome area on that area.

Damned if they aren't!

I was looking on the upper and lower pylons!!

Thanks!

You should find a way to tilt it so you can differentiate it from DS9.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I received my replacement DS9 (actually two of them, one of which also had the broken pylons, but it was a free replacement and easily glued together so I wont complain), and the latest shipment (Reliant and Akira) with the Dedication plaque at the end of last week. I'm happy with the quality with the latest run.

I was also charged for the next run this morning. I'm looking forward to the Ferengi Marauder next time!

Just spotted the Enterprise-E model photo is now up and, oh dear, it's the First Contact version.

Going to have to rewatch the espisodes and see if there were any color differences. I don't have my model in front of me, but I think I should black out any windows there are.

Out of interest, so? I know some very minor changes were made for either INS or NEM, but frankly without having seen the article on it on Ex Astris Scientia, I don't think I would have ever even noticed myself.
FC was when it first appeared in all it's glory so why shouldn't it look like that
