    So, on the XL Reliant - the ship lacks the name on top of the saucer.

    It's there, it's just that the outlines aren't as clearly printed. Not enough contrast between the characters and the background. The nice aztecking patterns add as extra camouflage to make it that much harder to see.

    Damn that's a fine looking model!

    Oh my... I have the reliant in my hands. It is one of the best models I’ve seen for a while. I think I’m in love

    Reliant looks lovely! If only there were a decent 1701 to pair her with.

    The Ent-C looks pretty good, but hard to see if it's got an impulse drive from that angle.

    The Reliant is one of my favorite ships (probably because WoK is my favorite Trek movie!) so can't wait for the XL version!

    Still no news on the Enterprise J XL. You can't do all the Enterprise's and leave that one out. The one that would actually benefit from a XL version.

    I think the XLsior has already been announced. I think it was all the Enterprises, Voyager, Defiant, Reliant, Excelsior and maybe the Delta Flyer?

    you are correct, per memory-alpha:

    Additional possible Oversized/XL issues from 2018 surveyEdit
    • Akira-class
    • Danube-class
    • D'deridex-class
    • Delta Flyer
    • Klingon Bird-of-Prey
    • K't'inga-class
    • Nebula-class
    • USS Enterprise NCC-1701-J
    • USS Excelsior
    • USS Prometheus

    this list makes me happy.

    Oooh! Those are some yummy potentials. I can go either way, with or without the Delta Flyer, but the rest...yes please!

    i can't see the delta flyer being very good in that scale. it's pretty clunky in the standard size as it is.

    Finally got confirmation the Europa has shipped. Looks like it’s coming with the scale charts & the Shenzhou dedication plaque.

    I got the charts but no dedication plaque. Must be in stock now. Probably get with that Vulcan ship.

    Well while I'm waiting for an answer from Eaglemoss on the main subscription I've headed back to eBay and spent way too much money. Before this week I only owned the Defiant. I now own:

    Enterprise D
    Enterprise D from All Good Things
    Enterprise C
    Nausicaan Fighter
    Delta Flyer
    Runabout
    Reliant
    Enterprise Refit

    And I still have bids on DS9, Enterprise E, Enterprise A and the Aventine.

    I'm supposed to be putting money away this month for a busy end to the year!!!

    That's what I'd end up doing, I'm amazed at my restraint. I only have the XL TOS Enterprise and DS9. I wanted the XL Ent-D but it seemed to be a bit disappointing.
