The Solar Sailor (Sailer) is large and beautiful, but extremely fragile-looking. I received it without damage, but kept it in its box for fear that its tiny splines may snap if I removed or replaced it, especially since others here have complained of such damage occurring in shipping.
Which is just part of the design of the ship, for better or worse.

I think this one would have been a good candidate for an DIY issue, where it comes disassembled and you snap the sails into place on the main body. Mine came with one of the sails detached, but it easily snapped back into place, thankfully.

Re: Star Trek: Starships Model/Magazine Subscription

The port pylon on my U.S.S. Equinox was glued incorrectly (wasn't pushed into the socket in the secondary hull all the way), and thus the nacelle sits much lower than it should.

Any suggestions on the kind of glue I ought to use to attempt the repair?

You have to be VERY Specific with this models. Only use Ethyl-2-Cyanocrylate or else they will spontaneously combust and burn your house down.

Or as its also known, Superglue works fine.

Looks great!

I hope they also release the Nemesis Refit version with the repositioned engine/pylons, blended Main Shuttlebay fairings and all the extra weapons...

Scuttlebutt says it'll have kung-fu grip and "assimilate this!" action too...

I was hoping that the NEM appearance was going to be the E-E release originally.

i don't think my ncc-1701 refit could cope with the dynamic forces of that fluidic environment . what would mr scott say?

No, i meant a micro scale version of v'ger/voyager 6 on that little island at the end of st: TMP like this



or like the macro version below. robert wise wanted it in the directors cut of star trek :the motion picture .so i think its official

i think its designed by steve burg

Anyway.it was only for completionist sake .right now with my enterprise and reliant models i get a' horatio hornblower' in space vibe about it. i like it
But if i want the 2001 space odyessey feel of St:tmp i will just have to make my own


This is a nice model for less than a tenner whether you choose to interpret and theme your model display like in St:TMP with the ncc 1701 in her prime or as in ST: TWoK and onwards,with the ship in her twilight years, then it is up to the individual how they interpret and display their model. there is no cast iron rule how you do this

this model shows the vulcan IDIC in practice
Does it? How? Of the models I have, it is unfortunately the worst especially when next to Reliant or even Stargazer.

No need to be sorry. Still don't get what you're meaning though.

No, there are no built-in lights. However the clear blue plastic will appear to be illuminated when the light hits it in the right way.
