    Thanks for sharing.
    That's a good find.

    The fate of the Scorpion class is intriguing. I wonder which other hitherto unpublished Alphabet Quadrant ships could be included. Perhaps Lazarus's shuttle? The Shroomie (Elachi/Gamma Vertian/Kovaalan) ship and shuttle?

    I received the Enterprise F refit model yesterday. I took pictures between that and the original “STO Decal” version.

    There are some noticeable differences between them. The paint jobs are different and the refit has noticeable impulse engines. The nacelles are also thicker and seem to have fins at the end.

    So they took an already crappy design and made it even worse.

    And the pylons are flipped, which is the most noticeable thing.

    You mean they took a great design and improved it.

    Okay, some of us love certain ship designs and others despise them.

    Speaking of which, I often find a particular ship suddenly appealing when I have the Eaglemoss mode of it. Despite that, I still am kinda meh with the beige Academy Trainer Craft.

    Star Trek: Picard novel author John Jackson Miller has an Eaglemoss model of La Sirena.

    I think the "F" looks great in the traditional battleship gray paint scheme.

    So I final got my XL Nebula and it came with a sensor pod with a tilt. Only to find out there is a giant glob of glue at the underside of the pod! I returned it and got a replacement and now all it good! Yay!

    :eek: Why did no-one tell me there was going to be another Designing Starships book focussing on Deep Space Nine?! Damn, I'm really out of the loop. How cool that they are doing another one of those. Am I the only one who's madly in love with those books? After the models themselves they are the best thing to come out of this collection, I think.

    There's also going to be an artbook for Battlestar Galactica design. Can't wait to flip through that.

    They are quite prolific. There are also multiple editions of some of the earlier books, some in other languages (Japanese, Polish, etc.). They can all be found itemized here at Memory Alpha.

    Eaglemoss emailed to apologise for the delay of the three ships from the movie Star Trek.

    The website now says September 2021 for these. Other upcoming releases range from July (unlikely), August (optimistic) to October.

    At least they're communicating delays now so we don't have to sit in limbo wondering if/when something will be sent.

    Indeed... That is an interesting (and welcome) change. I wonder if they're under new management now...

    I presume it's a one-off thing they do this time due to crossborder shipping issues.
