    Ah, thank you. You're right.

    I received my Valdor and Runabout today. Both of them are very nice.

    Wow, just received my latest shipment a few days ago and already charged for next months ships! Really wish they would stick to a set time of each month to charge me instead of all these random dates.

    How do you like the Danube's detailing? I remember it was a contentious issue three months ago or so.

    I wouldn't call it a "contentious" issue. I believe there was one person who had issue with the detailing. The comparison pictures they posted are accurate to the final design, but I don't think it takes away from the model at all. If you compare it side by side, yes you'll notice a few differences in the detailing of the cockpit, but by itself it's a great model.

    I saw nothing that made me scratch my head. I was really impressed with the detail of that model. Didn't think much of the paint job to be honest with you.

    I am one of the people who complained about the complete lack of paneling. The rest of the detail is good, and the design of the ship itself is one of my favorite designs for modern TV trek. Its just rather odd that the Runabout has some of the most visible paneling of any ship, and they didn't include. Heck they even have it on the micro machine version of the runabout (best way I know of knocking them for it). Heck all of the effects shots they have in the magazine its clearly visible.

    I was bitching about it on the Facebook page too. The panelling is probably the feature of the Danube class and it is completely absent from the model. This leaves huge parts of the model completely plain. This exact same issue plagued the TMP Refit Enterprise and that gets shit on, I'm shocked the Runabout didn't get the same response.

    I'll compare it with my Furuta model as soon as I get my hands on the new runabout. :drool:

    ^^The Furuta one is considerably better when it comes to detailing imo. The colours are off, but the detailing for once is better than an EM ship.

    So I sent another email to Eaglemoss to find out what the delay is as to why I have yet to be informed that they will ship my 3-nacelle Enterprise-D. A few days later I finally received a response.

    I hope this stock delay (production delay?) doesn't take too much longer.

    Also, my Paypal was just charged for the first ships of the new year.

    Mine just arrived today! Beautiful ship. Can't say it was really worth the wait, considering I was basically forgotten along with other people, but it finally arrived safe and sound.

    I got the "you should've gotten that a long time ago" e-mail, but am still waiting on mine as well.

    It looks like they should be delivered this week. I got the same email and it was definitely within the "10 business days" range.

    I picked up the Orbeth Class just now from my local WHSmiths and I've never really realised what a fugly ship that actually is.

    ^ I didn't realise it was out today. I know it's normally Thursday, but I read that because of Christmas Day it would be Wednesday this week (not today, Tuesday.)

    I'll have to go tomorrow and hope there's one left

    I just emailed Eaglemoss about my Voyager. It came in with a lousy paint job. There are extra drips of paint on the forward section and on the underside of one of the nacells the paint is gone completely. Looks like it did not dry and got wipe off some how.

    I went in on the off chance they had it in already, which they did and I picked it up.

    I'm sure you'll get a timely reply on that.
