    I've not said otherwise.

    Then we agree. I think both the Ent-J and STO's ships are ugly.

    Hi peeps!

    Yuss! :D received my Beyond Enterprise Refit today - and it doesn’t disappoint whatsoever!

    Paint job is great, nacelles are aligned - detailing is superb, and everthing looks perfectly proportioned! :) very happy with this particular EM offering.

    A great diecast of the gorgeous Kelvinverse Beyond 1701 Refit.

    Highly recommended to anyone sitting on fence about acquiring this particular diecast starship ;)

    Fingers now crossed EM also does the Beyond 1701-A!

    I just noticed at both my local newsagents and WHSmiths (in UK btw) that both had #141 The T'Pau on sale already, when it's not normally released till Thursday.
    Another one I'm skipping, but if anyone out there doesn't wanna wait (don't know if it will be all branches though)

    How high did they say they were going with their latest extension? I somehow remember 150. If that's true, we're almost at the end of this ride if they're getting into the 140's in the U.K.

    It was extended to 160 whenever the last extension was but that seems like it was a long time ago.

    It does seem like it's been awhile. A few new ship images but no "announcement" about where it's going from here. Any Star Trek/Sci-Fi cons coming up where they could be making announcements?

    Yeah I guess the last one was back in October when they announced Gomtuu, the Merchantman (squeeee!) and a couple others. We are about due for a new batch soon, I would think.

    They seem to be dribbling out announcements two ships at a time lately, just about a week before they show up in my monthly Previews catalog. Dunno if we’ll be getting any more 5 or 10-ship reveals.

    Issues 145 through 150 have been confirmed:

    145: Nightingale
    146: Fesarius
    147: Baran's raider from "Gambit" (or the Miradorn ship, I suppose)
    148: Jem'Hadar battleship
    149: Krenim warship
    150: USS Antares NCC-9844

    Not a fan of the Nightingale at all (the episode or the ship), but really happy to know the Jem'Hadar battleship and the Antares (the last remaining Miranda variant, as far as I know) are on their way.

    Whoop Jem'Hadar Battleship at last!
    The Battle Cruiser was #13, the Fighter was #29, and the Battleship is #148. :lol: it's been a bit of a wait

    Also loving the Krenim Warship, not interested in the first 3, but I'll actually get all 148-150

    Doubt I'll get any of these; I have three Miranda variants (Reliant, Saratoga, Bozeman), and that's enough for me.

    I'm pretty faithful at getting Starfleet ships, except for the Wolf 359 and Dominion War kitbashes which I really don't care for (and even there are some nice exceptions like the Kyushu/New Orleans, the Centaur, and hopefully the Cheyenne soon), so I'll probably get it. (Currently waiting for the Lantree to show up at my local store).

    The Jem'Hadar battleship was a pleasant surprise as I'd previously read that this one would be released as a large version, which would've precluded me from getting it. (Nothing wrong with them, but they're rather outside my budget and I really don't have the space for them).

    I've already expressed by dislike for the Nightingale (I know recycling models is a necessary thing, but turnimg a Fed/Maquis fighter into a much larger alien ship? Really? And I won't get into my problems with the ep itself.) The Fesarius doesn't really do anything for me (though it would be cool if you had a chance to get Clint Howard to sign the magazine or base). A lot of Voyager's alien ships of the week didn't really make much of an impact with me, so I'll probably leave it be. The raider I could maybe see getting, depending on what else is available at the time.

    Somebody posted about a way they altered the bases (gluing something underneath?) to fit more ships on the same shelf by slightly changing the height. I can’t reread 360+ pages. Anybody remember what that was?

    late but, my discovery enterprise came last week. has some structural integrity issues, so eaglemoss is sending me anew one that hopefully isn't worse:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    damage aside, i'm finding this model a little disappointing. i thought having the model would increase my appreciation for the ship, but it has actually reduced it. it's just not an exciting design. i find myself admiring the USS clarke more than the enterprise.
    same. i was pleasantly surprised to see this one is not a special after all. i haven't bought a regular sized model in over a year now, but i'll definitely be picking one of these up.
