[Editor's Note (March 2016): This will mark my second re-write of this article. Now that I've written over 50 of these Eaglemoss vs. The World articles, I feel like I've developed a certain style and flow to the articles and I wanted to make all of them have that same feel across the series. Consider this the REFIT version of the original article.]
Memory Bta has given this type of ship the name of Olaen Class. You can read more about this ship at these Memory Alpha and Memory Beta links.
Since I have no other manufacturer's models to compare with, let's just jump right into looking at the Eaglemoss ship.
This is one of the largest Eaglemoss ships in the collection so far, not counting the special edition models. It's also pretty hefty in the weight department and quite frankly, one of the better models from Eaglemoss.
Eaglemoss made a wise decision in making her big. Because there was more room to work with, they were really able to shine through on the model. The sculpting and the molding on the ship is crisp and the metallic paint is flawless. There are some subtle paint details that give the ship a weathered look to it.
I was not able to find fault with the model. I even checked in with some of my fellow reviewers, and they all seem to be of the same mindset, that this is a great model.
My only complaint, and it has nothing to do with the model, is that the stand is a little awkward to work with. Be extra careful not to move it once you have it mounted, otherwise it will fall off.
And that wraps it up for the comparison and review part of my article. I told you it was going to be short. Which now brings us to the pricing portion of my article. As usual, I will continue with the tradition of rounding up the most inexpensive Buy-It-Now prices from eBay at the time of this article's writing.
Eaglemoss = $25
We now come to the part of my article where I would normally give you my opinion of which ship gives you the "best bang for the buck", which is my rough way of telling you which one is the best one to get for the best price. Since there is only one ship this time, the winner is a clear choice. In seriousness, if you like alien looking vessels, you should definitely get this one, it does not disappoint.
Anyway, I hope you found this article useful and informative. Please feel free to leave any comments, questions or suggestions below.
So for now, "Live Long And Prosper!"
