The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Star Trek - The Official Starships Collection Issue 3 Review


I was pleasantly surprised when my issues 2 and 3 of "Star Trek - The Official Starships Collection" came through the post together.  (Issue 2 - USS Enterprise NCC-1701 can be read here).  Issue 3 is the Klingon B'rel-class warship - better known as a Bird of Prey as seen in Star Trek III The Search For Spock, and featured in many other Star Trek movies and series.  Although not one of my favourite Star Trek ships, I'm pleased to say that after the slightly disappointing issue 2 Enteprise model, the quality has once again returned to the standard seen in issue one's Enterprise D.  The ship is extremely detailed, with an effective weathering texture to make the vessel look dirty and used.








 
Although smaller than the previous models, it still looks good at a length of 88m and a width of 132mm
 
My only criticism with this model is that you are unable to position the wings in attack or landing mode, but that really doesn't bother me too much.  A fantastic looking model and I really hope the quality of the Enterprise NX-01 is just as detailed in the next issue.
