Official Starships Collection - Eaglemoss

Post by Crash »

Is anyone else on the forum picking up any of these?
One of my friends is subscribed to get all of them but I just focus on the Star Fleet ships - especially the rare and interesting ones.

I find that the non-Star Fleet ships have a knack of being either ship-of-the-week, throwaway designs or don't carry across well into models.
For instance, the Cardassian ships are a bit plasticy.
The Jem'Hadar attack ship was nicely-detailed but was a pale silver rather than the striking alien purpley-blues from in the show. The Klingon Negh’Var was lacking detail and had a drab paint job.
One good alien ship that I haven't grabbed yet is Andy Probert's Next Generation Romulan Warbird. That is a great Andy Probert design and it looks as though they haven't skimped on the model quality.
The Tholian ship scored a hit as well.

I just got 4 on my wish list delivered; Excelsior, Oberth, Norway and Voyager.
I would give each of those at least a 4.5 out of 5 and a solid 5 in the case of Excelsior.

That leaves Enterprises B and C, Runabout, Federation fighter and Warbird on my hit list.
Dream big and bold and daring.
