Eaglemoss Starships updates: Fesarius, Spacedock, Disco-ships, and more!

Eaglemoss have released their latest round of solicitations for The Official Starships Collection, which reveal two new issues of their regular series. We've also got lots of new images of the gorgeous Spacedock special, and Discovery updates too. Continue below for all the latest:

First up solicitations have revealed two ships in up-coming line-up for the regular series, with issue 146 being the long awaited Fesarius, from The Corbomite Maneuver, one of the first ever ships in Star Trek. It was previously suggested this was a challenging model to pull off, which one can imagine, due to the two colours and sizes of disk that cover the surfaces in triangular panels; there's a lot of small detail on this deceptively simple model. If you look closely at this image you can see some sort of impression of the triangular shapes, but it looks to be all one colour - But the colour on the solicitation images is often a bit off anyway, so let's hope the final model does the ship justice.



After that issue 147 is Baran's raider from TNG's Gambit, which was actually first introduced as the Miradorn raider in DS9's Vortex. I guess they went for the Gambit identity as it was a main location throughout the two-part episode.


Meanwhile on the Eaglemoss webshop, the next special, Earth Spacedock is now listed, giving us lots of lovely photos of this iconic TOS movie-era design - Looks like a great model!






Back to solicitations, it was previously announced issue ten of the Discovery collection will be the Klingon Qoj class, and so we have a new photo of that model, and the cover too. It looks gloriously colourful in this rather saturated image:



Also in the solicitations is the XL Disco-USS Enterprise, giving us a new photo of that model too:



A jazzed up image of the Enterprise can also now be found as a banner on the Eaglemoss webshop.
