    Is it much of a visual issue that the antenna at the top is solid, instead of having holes? I'm usually okay for not getting details rights but my eyes keep wandering to that spot on pictures.

    In all honesty I hadn't even noticed that, so my answer is no, but YMMV.

    The XL Disco box had the additional series names on it.

    I had an email from DPD saying mine will be arriving Tuesday, although, that's the proxy address in Northern Ireland, I expect mine to be at my local Parcel Motel on Wednesday.

    I currently have 3 ships on order, but I realized afterward I should have waited till after the election...one ship has been stuck in the midwest since the 13th.

    I don't understand the order the series logos are on the side: Now it's (L-R), VOY, DS9, TNG, Enterprise etc), not TNG, DS9, VOY, ENT.

    How long are people waiting for something to be shipped? Not how long it takes to arrive, but how long before they actually ship it. I'm still waiting for a charge and tracking number for something I ordered on the 1st.

    A month or two ago, I wanted over 2 weeks before I even got the invoice emailed to me, and every order since its taken anywhere from 2 to 5 days to get an invoice after placing an order (that used to be minutes or hours after an order was placed). And I haven't had any real tracking info all summer. But on the one I was really getting a little worried about, I did call, they showed I had placed an order, but that it hadn't processed yet.

    The order is probably for best visual presentation?

    Are there any ships of the week Eaglemoss has skipped? I'm trying to think of some, have they done the Monean submarine ships or the Varro Generation ships? I see they finally got to the larger Vidiian mothership.

    There are over 100 plus ships that haven't been made (that's not talking shuttles or stations), while some of them are kit bashed from parts of other ships, many are new builds. They haven't done either of the two you mentioned. Especially Enterprise and Voyager (CGI really helped them create less obvious kit bashes, but also a lot of original designs) have a host of ships that have never been made.

    The Wadi ship is interesting looking. It was reused a couple of times, like in "Indiscretion".

    Well, haven't fully recovered yet, but I felt, at long last, I'd regained enough strength and movement in my arm to pull out the boxes storing my ships and put them on display. It took a couple of days to get them right, during which time I had stacks and stacks of boxes in my room, which I've finally managed to put away. I managed to find spot for the two ships I bought in the meantime (the Mondor and un-assimilated Arctic One), plus left room for the Prometheus, which is finally on its way.

    The Mondor is a funny looking ship, rather generic-looking. That protruding fuel tank on the side is a neat touch to show how primitive the Pakleds supposedly were. The pre-Borg Arctic One is a bit strange-looking for an Earth ship. They don't typically come green like that. Aside from the signage in English on the hull, if I'd never seen it before, I might assume it was a Klingon or Romulan ship. It does make me really want to get the assimilated version though. ;)

    The shipment says the Prometheus is due on Tuesday, but we'll see...

    Wasn’t there a Zeppelite ship that looked like that, but backwards? High speed affair that Dukat wanted a bridge strike upon IIRC.

    Ack forgot the post above Defiant distortion?
