Latest Eaglemoss Starships Collection previews

Eaglemoss have released their latest round of solicitations, giving us first looks at several new ships in The Official Starships Collection. Plus there's news of a second wave of possible XL ships, and new images of several other models. Continue below to check them out:

First up we have the third issue of the Discovery collection, which, despite previous reports that issue would be the new Klingon Bird of Prey, is in fact, in line with even earlier reports, the Shepard class USS Kerala! It looks like a rather attractive model!



Issues 127 and 128 of the regular series have also been revealed, and both look like really eye-catching models too! Issue 127 the the Eymorg ion drive ship, the TOS remastered version of the design, which is a unique round five-nacelled ship. This should arrive in the UK first, in June.



Issue 128 is a really unusual one, a future space-shuttle, the OV-165, which appears in the opening titles of Enterprise. This should be arriving in July.



Eaglemoss have also recently sent subscribers a survey to determine demand for further XL sized ships. Available to vote on are the Klingon Bird of Prey, USS Excelsior, USS Prometheus, K't'inga class, USS Enterprise-J, Akira class, Delta Flyer, runabout, Nebula class, and Romulan warbird.

I for one would be very excited for larger versions of the Romulan warbird, Akira class, and Enterprise-J, and wouldn't mind quite a few of the others! I also used the other box to nominate one of my favourite designs, the Vulcan D'kyr class.



Meanwhile over on the US Eaglemoss shop, there are several new and updated listings, giving us new images and videos of a number of fairly recent ships. We've got the Hirogen Holoship:









The Freedom class USS Firebrand:








22nd century Ferengi ship:








And the Tellarite cruiser:








Finally, Amazon have revealed the cover for the new edition of the second Designing Starships book, The USS Voyager and Beyond, which is due for re-release in January.

Lovely! Especially the Kerala. The model actually looks like a better fit for Star Trek than the CGI version--maybe not in the TOS-era, but it certainly wouldn't look out-of-place in the TMP-era, next to the Excelsior or Miranda.
