Im slightly dissapointed that the Prometheus isn't in this next batch but fingers crossed for it (and the Enterprise-J).  That Discoprise looks much better than i initially thought.

Some of those XL choices are amazing! I'm definitely down for a Runabout. Here's a list from the facebook group:

 

XL ships

XL11: Discoprise
XL12: Akira Class
XL13: Klingon BOP
XL14: Runabout
XL15: Excelsior Class

 

Specials
SP15: Spacedock
SP16: V'Ger
SP17: Doomsday Machine
SP18: Scimitar

 

Bonus
USS Emmet Till - Ezris Ship (DS9 Season8)

 

Regular issues
141: Vulcan T'Pau
142: Promellian Battle Cruiser
143: Merchantman
144:Tin Man (Gomtuu)
145: Nightingale

 

Other ship news:

Insurrection ships.
Ben said, “They are committed to rebuilding them, and hope to have them out in the next 18 months and hopefully sooner.”

 

Next Station is Regular one (No date yet).

 

The Emmet Till is apparently featured in the 'season 8 episode 1' of DS9 from the new documentary. Designed by John Eaves (very obviously in my opinion), here's the story behind who the ship's named after: https://en.wikipedia...iki/Emmett_Till

I'd like to see the Emmet TIll from more angles, but it definitely looks like every other ship Eaves designs. 

 

Not sure why he always cuts out the front of the saucers. From the looks of it, it seems like a window is there instead of a deflector.

The man does love his negative space.

 

Oh yeah Im happy for the runabout as well. I suppose we've got to get the obligatory Klingon BOP and Excelsior out of the way first.

At destination Star Trek he actually commented that they placed the shuttle bay there thats why there is a cut in the saucer section

XL Akira sounds pretty sweet.

 

The T'Pau should be neat -- that design doesn't get enough appreciation.

 

Also, I'm ready for the my terrible Excelsior study models from Unification. Waiter, check please!

 

It's cool to see that they're getting deep into concept sketches as source material -- I'm sure many of us would probably like this Valiant concept, or at least one of the Defiant concepts (but not the bad ones).

Personally, id love the Valiant as a bonus ship among several others.

XL models, im only after Enterprises, for my work desk.

But im most upset about the Whale Probe. Im not sure why he said the whale probe wouldnt be done. I mean, look at the Malon freighter... its color scheme was downright autrocious... and for the sake of clarity, my daughter calls it the turd ship. So the whale probe has some precedence for an unattractive or noncolorful vessels being in the collection.

Yeah, it was simple on screen and mono colored, but thats the point. As far as mounting the ball, the solution is fairly easy... just look at every other ship in the collections display stand. Id gladly deal with a clear piece of plastic to give the illusion of the glowball floating than to not have it at all. It can go then mount within a hole in the bottom, which was seen on screen. Maybe include some glossy white paint freckles in the plastic to give the illusion of glowing.

The Fesarious... i was disheartened he may not get to do that ship... but we have a borg sphere... surely injection molding the exterior in complete plastic (maybe metal interior for weight and stability) with clever paint apps could bring that ship to life. I mean, weve gotten all plastic ships before. While i know its not die cast, weve lived with one before (precedence), so to ensure a ship is included in the collection and being one of his favorites, surely a solution can be found.

I hope Ben doesnt give up on either of these ships. I love them all, flaws and all. Hopefully he finds the way forward.

I have this feeling the Discoprise was a mistake in that article...

Why would the display stand in the photo look more like on par with a normal sized model?

Also why would that be in the other collection and not the Discovery collection?

They said they wanted to get the XL out first with it coming later in the Discovery Collection at the normal Discovery size.

Well they finally pushed me over the edge and I subscribed to the Discovery line.....

 

That XL Enterprise sealed the deal for me.

Has someone ever ordered at the Eaglemoss shop and paid with PayPal? I've ordered four models about a week ago and didn't receive any order confirmation whatsoever. I contacted the support via Email but they're not responding. Should I withdraw the order and open a case on PayPal? There seems to be quite the bad history with Eaglemoss and PayPal, according to most costumer reviews.
