    I love the Typhon and it’s ‘Valkyrie class’ fighter craft

    Of the three you asked about, definitely the best choice. :)

    The Son'a flagship arrived in Germany today. Insurrection may have been mediocre, but IMO it had the best starship designs of any ST movie!

    According to the magazine the orthographic renders show the original Santa Barbara Studios CG model. Does anyone know if this applies to the in flight renders on the first few pages of the magazine as well? Cause if any of them show the newly built mesh it has got to be really good, I see no differences at all.

    I'm thinking, if the Son'a command ship flew backward, would it look like an advanced Ferengi ship?

    With a touch of brown paint, yes.

    Have they been restocking sold out stuff lately, or does that only happen every few months?

    So once again I get sent only 1 ship (issue #161, no #159 or #160) after another 2 month wait. I think I'm going to go ahead and cancel both my regular and XL subscriptions and just buy directly from the E-shop. I'll be spending a little bit more (except when using one of the thousands of discount codes Eaglemoss sends every other day) and getting the ships faster. Plus, there are only 19 regular subscription issues left and their E-shop always gets them faster than I do.

    More of a hump on its back, too.

    UK online store has some deals on "bonus ships" (are these ones that aren't sold in the collection line?)... picked up the Aventine, glow-in-the-dark Interphase Defiant and the grey version of the Enterprise-F for £9.99 each.

    I feel your pain...

    The Bonaventure-class is a beautiful ship bridging the shapes of Archer's era and Kirk's. Awesome, vintage lines. Would love to have seen one in TOS.

    I hope that it will soon be an XL offering.

    I periodically check the US Eaglemoss shop, and I've seen them restock stuff every couple of months there--but they tend to go pretty quickly. I've seen them restock both versions of the Enterprise-F twice in the past six months, and they both tend to be out of stock again just a week later. They don't seem to restock the Bonaventure and the Aventine as much, so when they do, they're all snatched up almost instantly.

    Yeah sometimes eBay is the only option, if you’re willing to pay a slightly elevated amount.

    IMC Headquarters, I couldn’t agree more. The Bonaventure was one I wasn’t so bothered about, but the moment I received it, I feel in love with it. Not only does it look very sleek from any angle, it fits in beautifully as part of the NX/Constitution lineage.

    Got the Hiawatha, Night ship, and shuttle set 6 today at my local retailer (Melbourne and Sarajevo are still MIA.)

    Finally ordered the TOS and Phase 2 shuttle concepts and the Conestoga.

    I see the DSC #12 Discoprise is back in the US store. I wonder if that means my store will be getting it anytime soon.

    I assume you mean black. They looked black to me in the episode.

    Would it have been that hard for the show to start with that design?
