Star Trek Starships 12 USS Thunderchild

After another delay here are a few quick snaps of issue 12 of the Star Trek Starships Collection issue 12, the USS Thunderchild which first appeared in Star Trek First Contact.

Every time I read about this Akira-class “catamaran” design I see the words “fan favourite” used. OK, I’ll take their word for it.

It’s a nice enough model and has some decent detail. However yet again it sits very loosely on the stand. In fact gravity is the only thing that keeps it on the stand thanks to the extreme angle the model is displayed at.

Well, never mind my complaints. On to the photos…
