A few weeks back I discovered that there is a new partwork featuring Star Trek Starship models running as a pilot in the UK. They have a website (startrek-starships.com) that allows you to subscribe so I thought it would be worth a go.
Model number 3 arrived today, although I should note that I’ve yet to recieve the first two issues. A letter enclosed with issue 3 says it’s because they are out of stock due to “overwhelming popularity”.
Issue 3 is the popular Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek III The Search for Spock and many other movies and TV episodes. Below are a few photos of the model.
Pros: It’s nicely detailed and the stand is quite solid.
Cons: The wings don’t go up and down and it really doesn’t want to stay on the stand.
Honestly, I’m not sure the thing is worth £9.99. But I’ll stick with the subscription at least until I get my Enterprise dedication plaque and light-up Borg Cube!
