    Imho, I'd make a great model - it has been canonised (in a smaller scale), it's a very TOS/era-appropriate looking station, it is relatively compact and free of breakable geeblies. Tobias Richter has made a CG model of it already, and it appeared in a Ships of the Line calendar.

    And while we're at it, the Archer-class USS Sagittarius. These need to be on shelves! My shelves, specifically.

    So, given the Lockdown-2 induced delays, which pre-orders are we expecting to be delivered next? Feels like it's been a while since a new ship was delivered. IIRC, my most recent one is the Heavy Raptor.

    I have heard that Regula 1 and the STO Pathfinder are "Out" in the US, but my pre-orders haven't shown up at my retailer yet. Lat things I got were the Orville and 179-180, a month ago. I should phone Eaglemoss and ask them, if they're still shipping Diamond preorders, when I can expect them.

    I'm afraid of running into the same problem I did before - waiting and waiting for my preorder, and by the time I give up, and try to order direct, there are no ships in stock and they don't seem to have any interest in RE-stocking them.

    I got excited there thinking they'd put out another STO ship, but you meant the Colonial Heavy Raptor from BSG, right?

    Of course! Sorry, I also felt strangely reminded of the Klingon raptor when I wrote it but didn’t make the connection to Klingon heavy raptors.

    I’m in the US & can confirm I got Regula 1 and STO Pathfinder a week or two ago.

    Another station model I'd like is Probert and Drexler's Frontier class AKA DS9 2.0.

    So I received the Borg cube a couple months ago. Nothing since. I know that is the last one in the subscription but I am still missing a bunch of ships that where skipped. So is my subscription done or out of no where months or years down the road will they show up at my door step?

    My comic shop gut published his "shipping next week" list today any my Pathfinder was on it. Still no Regula 1.

    I wrote a letter to Eaglemoss customer service:

    Their response was disappointing. Obviously they are still using Diamond, that's where I'm getting the Pathfinder, but the letter itself was seriously boilerplate and answered NONE of my other questions or concerns. In fact, I think they saw a keyword and hit a "Standard Response" button:

    So I'll have to call them, and/or have a chat with my comic guy to see if he minds if I cancel my late ships and look elsewhere.

    I really do not like that design.

    So, with lockdown being firmly in place, I presume no orders are being shipped until that’s over.

    Plenty of pre-orders still show November as release date. Guess that’s not gonna happen.

    Is anything from the “add to basket” gonna be shipped right away as usual, or also not happening?
    I’m...getting uncomfortable with not having a new ship in a while. :alienblush:

    Still getting my Delorean parts and the occasional XL/special, but yeah, the traffic has definitely decreased in recent months.

    It looks like a giant Gyroscope.

    I hope they keep the Star Trek online collection going I'd like them to do a Hestia, a Narendra (I know it's the concept Enterprise-C but I want the type 7 hull), and the Titan (tier 6 Luna) and more Romulan ships like the Arkala/Ar'kif, and Ha'apax.

    Sale on with a good number of ships reduced to £7.50 UK price. I picked up Chakotay's Maquis ship and a Tholian 23rd Century vessel along with a standard-priced 22nd Century Rommie Bird of Prey.

    England is exiting the lockdown tomorrow.
    I wonder if that could mean that some pre-orders could switch to Add to Basket over the course of early December.

    I ordered some stuff on Thursday through the UK shop and they're awaiting to be picked up in my local Parcel Motel, I'm not sure if Covid and Lockdown in England can be blamed on some things remaining in preorder for so long.

    I have no idea how that industry works.

    Assuming positive intent, I’d reckon that the warehouse is operating but the person flipping the “add to basket” button is not in office.
    Or the production of any new model in China is heavily delayed.


    EDIT: USCSS Prometheus is Add to Basket in the UK now. Delivery soon?!
