That shape. Twenty-five bloody years to get one, but FINALLY! :D

 

I'm buying two right off the bat. One to build really quickly (base coat blue, not grey!), and the decals. This'll be my 'toy' version - to play with, use as a frisbee, etc :)

One more to take my time on, putty out the seams, light up and fully paint (no paint decals, just the pennants and small details).

 

EDIT: Prometheus, just in case you haven't seen them/forgot about them:

;)

 

EDIT 2: Back of the box says it's 6 3/4 inches long. The 1/1000 scaling is based off a length of 170 meters, but if (like me) you prefer to think of the Defiant as being 120 meters, which lines up with Doug Drexler's MSD from the show, then this model will basically be the exact same scale as Eaglemoss' gorgeous Jem'Hadar bug! That's a ready-made diorama waiting to happen!

I think it's safe to say JayK, you and I both might be fans of the Defiant.... LOL.... Thanks for sharing the studio photos..... Those are the best references I've seen.

I'm with you..... After all this time someone actually nailed the look of this awesome ship!!

Alteran..... You may have lucked out with this kit!! I was looking at the box on another site and it no longer says Ertl.... It says its a Polar Lights snap kit!! How much do you want to bet this will be released as a prepainted snap kit before too long..... I will be getting one of those also!!

The decal sheets alone look like it covers a lot of the details, so Ill take a crack at this one since it wont take much paint work.

Itd be awesome if they release a prepainted one.
