New Star Trek part work magazine with little model ships!
Eaglemoss have just launched a new part work magazine in the UK, Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection. Each issue will come with a model ship, with the magazine giving technical details, behind the scenes information, and recounting on-screen appearances. Issue 1, with the Enterprise-D is just £1.99, going up to £5.99 for the Enterprise-A with issue 2, and settling at £9.99 a go from issue 3's Klingon Bird-of-Prey.
The 12-14cm long ships will include "every major Federation vessel" (so presumably all the series ships at the very least), plus popular minor ships such as the Akira class, and alien vessels, including Romulan, Klingon, and Borg designs.
As every with these things you are encouraged to subscribe with an assortment of subscriber perks, including a binder, dedication plaque, and two extra models; An All Good Things... version of the Enterprise-D, and a light up Borg Cube.
I'm a sucker for Star Trek part works, and for Star Trek ships, so despite the hefty price tag I'm sure I wont be able to resist this. I shall report back on the quality and contents of the first issue as soon as I can find a copy.
You can find out more on the magazine's website. Thanks to TrekBBS user Trek Survivor for pointing it out!
