I can recommend this one:

http://m.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/art/10119206/

I believe that Ikea also sells lighting that's compatible with it.
That looks good, but is it big enough for this collection?
The distance between the shelves is probably excessive considering the ships aren't really that tall. However, there are numerous online tutorials that show ways to add extra shelves. I think with six interior shelves, one could easily fit 48-56 ships (8 or 9 per shelf) without it looking too cluttered.

I'm not a big fan of the stands from the 2009 ships, I've found that the translucent plastic tends to warp over time and make the ships droopy (I've also seen numerous complaints about breakage, which I fear is in the future for the stand of my refit E).
Well, thAt's disappointing.
I noticed they went away from the translucent plastic for the 2013 releases, so we'll see how those hold up.
I think I might go custom. http://www.custommade.com/custom-dis.../albaplastics/

Haven't gotten the Defiant and Sphere yet, despite being charged for it at least 2 weeks ago. I blame this weather, but I'm still worried. :S
Finally got them the other day. Damn weather really delayed them. So much so that I got them and then today was charged for this next months. So it basically took a MONTH for them to get here this time. Usually only takes 10 days or so. I blame the weather, well and truly.

Can't wait for next month! (this month)!
I still haven't gotten mine yet and was charged for next months yesterday.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I love how the majority of this thread seems to be people bemoaning that they've been charged for the magazine and ship and haven't got it and then amazingly they show up.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Well, it doesn't normally bother me that much but it can be a little concerning when you get charged again before the last shipment even shows up. Given their great customer service but lack of real updates I don't think I'll get too cattywampus until I get a third charge and no shipment. Generally though I'm one of the last on here to get the shipment so there is still a good chance it will be here by friday.

The Galor-class, USS Equinox and Abramsprise are available now; my friend just put some pics of them on facebook.
The Equinox looks awesome!

Yup, I just received my copies of those ships this morning. I was wondering where they'd got to.

I could have sworn I read it was out next month, not this month.

Just found the advert and it says the 6th March, guess that means that's when it hits WHSmith and the like it was out for subs today.

Not sure if anyone else has seen this yet, first time I've seen a picture of it, so I thought I'd share - early (not final) look at the Krenim Time-ship: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...62&mode=retail

The Furuta stuff was a nice place-holder while waiting for someone to do them right, like Eaglemoss is now. Don't waste the time/money on them at this point though.
Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. The OCD collector inside of me is always afraid there is a better product I should be chasing. I already have the Hallmark ornaments, so I'll just stick with the Eaglemoss. I'm eagerly awaiting my first shipment.

By the way, does Eaglemoss offer the ability to "catch up" by speeding up subscription deliveries?

Just received the Abramsprise, Equinox, Galor and Borg Cube in the post today!

The Borg cube has a battery compartment [4x AA batteries required] which light it up in traditional green. Pretty cool.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

Hmm. So that means US subscribers will be charged the extra $40 for the Abramsprise in March, for April delivery along with Jem'Hadar & Galor? Or is my math off by a month and we get the Abramsprise in May along with Equinox & Ferengi?

Batteries? Too bad. Part of me was hoping the cube ran off of AC power or had a USB so I could use it as a lamp on my computer desk.
