Resin Kit Review: Resin Modeler 1:1400 NX Refit Class

NOTE:  You can click on most pictures to get a larger view of them.

It's been a while since I wrote a resin kit review, but this one has me all excited, and has been a long time coming.  I am of course talking about the 1:1400 scale NX Refit by Resin Modeller.

Resin Modeller's Recommended Paint Scheme

The first thing you should know, is that this is actually two separate kits.  Resin Modeller makes a 1:1400 NX kit and then you need to purchase the separate add-on kit that comes with additional parts.  I liked this concept as it made the build options much more flexible.

So in essence, you are getting technically two reviews for the price of one.  One for the NX kit, and one for the Refit Add-On kit.  :-)

EMvTW 35: Klingon Bird of Prey (22nd century)

[Editor's Note (May 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.]

The second ship from this month's Eaglemoss vs. The World series is the 22nd Century Klingon Bird Of Prey.


Like the Surak class, this ship has only been produced by Eaglemoss as a pre-built and pre-painted model.

EMvTW 34: Vulcan Surak class

It's a new month and it brings with it two new ships from Eaglemoss for my collection.  In this article, I'm going to highlight the Vulcan Surak Class ship.


Since Eaglemoss is the only manufacturer to offer a pre-built and pre-painted model of this ship, I of course only have this one in my collection.
