    I have my fingers crossed for Ra's ship from the movie, though with the moving panels, it could be a double- or even triple-dip (sealed up for flight, opened for landing, and with the palace section at the top opened and exposed).

    I pre-ordered the Discovery-A XL and Cerritos XL through that offer on the EU shop, can't wait for either. The Disco-A, I think I'll glue the Necelles to the secondary hull.

    I pre -ordered the DS9 Valiant and the shuttle collection #8. I still feel that the Ferengi ship could have been part of the main release, but whatever.

    I got the Valiant and it looks like the box was changed from the typical box they had before. Here is the picture of my model.

    Yeah a lot of the new ones not a part of the original main line are using this new box style now. They’re also using the smaller magazine size as well.

    True about the smaller magazines. I forgot that as well.

    I think I'll probably skip this one. I'm not crazy about the look of it. The concept ships have been kind of a mixed bag for me. I really liked the Voyager, Enterprise-C, and Reliant concepts, but I didn't get any of the Excelsior ones. (As I've said before, concepts are usually concepts for a reason).

    I am looking forward to the Klingon D-5 tanker, which is one I didn't expect. For someone like me, who pretty much sticks to the "Berman era" and has neither the money, nor the room, to get the XL ships, there's not a whole lot left to look forward to, so when it's something I like, it's exciting.

    And I'm still holding out hope for Degra's ship, the Cardassian "Dreadnought" missile, the Think Tank vessel, the Bajoran scout, and the Yridian ship.

    The Valiant is a nice design from the bow and above, the side and aft not so much as it lacks the Defiant's aft blue nacelle structures.

    Hi Peeps!

    Just ordered the A.F.S. Khitomer from BBTS!

    Had earlier tried ordering using a prezzy card through EM Australia, but the site wouldn’t let me - so immediately went over to BBTS and card worked perfectly fine! Not sure what that was about…

    Anywho, I’m really looking forward to this one (I realise it’s not everyone’s cuppa, but it’s most definitely mine!).

    Can’t wait! :beer:

    It irks me somewhat that as a Star Trek Universe subscriber I’m usually 1 or 2 issues behind what’s on the web store.

    :lol: That all? I'm still waiting for two Excelsior prototypes and a couple of others from the original main line. In my experience as a subscriber, I'm usually 4-6 months behind, on the average. 2 months is actually pretty good!

    This is probably because you're in the UK and closer to the corporate source of the models. US has always been many months behind since the beginning.

    "Oh!" moment.
    Surprisingly, the mag for the Romulan Flagship does not reveal the size of the Dhailkhina-class warbird. In previous years, Eaglemoss was pretty good at determining the size of any spacecraft, so why not here?

    Remember that one time Eaglemoss offered personalized models and then never again?

    Here’s a current image of Alexander NX-17: https://twitter.com/alexd1992/status/1470077371231334400?s=21

    I
    wish it was economic to produce Eaglemoss ships with custom names/registries. At least we have GamePrint as a workoraround.

    NEWS:
    Star Trek Universe sub is now shipped every two months instead of monthly.

    “We hope that you are enjoying your Star Trek Universe collection as much as we are producing the ships for you. However, due to the ongoing impact of Covid on the supply chain, we are unable to send them to you as regularly as we hoped for in 2022.

    You will continue to receive your ships, but it will be every 2 months for the foreseeable future. Don’t worry, there will be other Star Trek offers in the pipeline and you will still receive the Free gifts which are exclusively available to our collectors.

    As always, we thank you for your support and understanding in this matter and rest assured your subscription will remain active.

    Kind regards,
    Eaglemoss Team“

    I read somewhere that the Wadi vessel is on the way as a special issue!
