Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I just got my latest shipment. Overall really good, but I'm a little disappointed with the paint job on the Marauder, almost to the point of making me think I got a bad one. It looks very faded, almost like they were running out of paint in the sprayer.

Received the Stargazer and Bajoran Solar Sail. Really great models, the former especially. I could have done with the saucer being a bit thicker but overall it's really good meaty.

Just concerned next month's Enterprise-E will be tiny like the Excelsior.
I see what you mean about the Stargazer saucer in the your photos- it looks to be only half as thick as it should be....

I just received the K'Tang class Klingon ship as well as Voyager. All have been high quality pieces well worth the price.

I wish they would come out with a collection of Enterprises like what was shown on the wall in the E-D's conference room in the first couple of seasons: lightly detailed half ships, to scale, painted gold, on a large plaque, etc.

Has anyone else noticed that the front page of The Collection now states there is a $1.95 S&H fee? Glad I got in before that was added!

I received my Romulan warbird and NX-01 this week. The Enterprise has both nacelles broken off, but fortunately they appear very easy to mount again. Just need to get a bit of super glue.

Anybody in the US got their Equinox and Marauder yet?
Yup Johnny, got mine last week.

VERY impressed. This might be the best pair yet.

I also received my paid for 2nd binder.

I think that should be a freebee.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

I saw the nuEnterprise at a shop in the US, the box is pretty good sized...

I assume it will be in the May shipment for subscribers.

Yikes. Happy I made it in on the ground floor and pre-ordered before release last summer.

Hope so. That is one of the ones I've been looking forward to.

Not yet, but I was just billed for it a few days ago.

Very interesting, I was very much looking forward to this set (particularly the Marauder) and the models are very nice, but as I mentioned before, I found the paint job on the Marauder to be a disappointment. On mine the "weathering" effect was very in-your-face. The body of the ship fades from the standard brown to almost white in the center and around the back. Was yours like this as well, or did I maybe get one that came off the line as the paint needed to be refilled?
