Ship bits: Runabout, blueprints, model kits, and Borg Cube

Some assorted starships news here, starting with out first look at Eaglemoss's Danube class runabout model. What looks like it might be one of the highlights of the The Official Starships Collection, this will be making its way to the UK first in a couple of months, as issue thirty-two of the series. These images were posted on The Collection's Facebook page:



Meanwhile, new in ThinkGeek's catalogue is this cool poster of the original USS Enterprise, presented blue-print style. The center-piece of the poster is the cutaway diagram of the Enterprise from the USS Enterprise Haynes Manual.


Continue after the jump for a couple more starship updates:

Newly listed on Round 2 Models' website is the forthcoming DS9 Cadet Series model kit set. The 1:2500 scale set (the same scale as all the other Cadet Series ships) will include the Defiant, Saratoga, and a Galor class ship. Round 2's listing revealed the box art, and that the set will be coming in October.


Finally, and a little belatedly, I recently came across photos from Neca's display the the San Diego Comic Con, where they had on show the prototype of their huge Borg Cube "miniature" for the Attack Wing game. This monster is due out in November, alongside an equally big DS9 (see previous report). I don't believe this is the final paint job. (Image via Crit to Hit):


PS. If you like the USS Titan, please check out my petition to get the Titan included in The Official Starships Collection. If five-thousand people willing to pre-order can be found, then a special issue can be commissioned. Please sign and share.

The Runabout does, indeed, look very good. Even if it is rather obviously inaccurately proportioned. I can live with the changes, though--personally, I think I wider, flatter runabout looks a bit better.

And I'm really glad they're doing a version with the sensor pod.
