    So, how do you pronounce Qoj class?

    Kosh?
    Coy?
    Kwosh?

    I thought it was Quoge ...

    like Quo-te and Fud-ge mixed together.

    But my Klingon sucks

    [qχoʤ] the Q-sound is like a hard 'k' followed by a German or Hebrew 'ch' sound, the 'o' like in 'note' and the Klingon 'j' like the 'j' in 'junk' or 'Django'

    As a German, I struggle to put the cough-like ch after k/q, but I could put it after the o. Like the German word Quatsch but with an o instead a.

    As an Austrian, have you ever been to Tyrol? The hard 'Kch' sound Tyrolians use instead of an K is what you want to use. Like the 'kch' in the Tyrolean version of the word 'Banane'

    a very hard ch, though
    this video, around the 2:40 mark also sheds some light on the Klingon 'q'/Tyrolean 'kch' sound

    I got the Shran #11 a few weeks ago, but I'm not all that impressed by it.
    The pic's in the booklet are interesting but the detail on the model is very lacking in comparison.


    I'm also finding that the scale used for the Discovery ships is all over the place.
    That in itself has been very disappointing.

    With maybe 2-3 exceptions, that's how Eaglemoss did the main line, the ships are whatever scale needed to fit into their standard sized box.

    The Shran is the first time I actually feel a little cheated by Eaglemoss, though. While still a nice design and a cool model, it's just way too small for £44.99 and – as you can see – would have fit snugly in a regular sized box. :thumbdown: indeed.

    Depends also on the material. Is it heavy? Could be mainly made of metal

    Doesn’t sound like a real place, and that zip code is suspicious
