EMvTW 47: Klingon Negh'Var class

[Editor's Note (June 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 last of my Eaglemoss vs. The World articles for this month will focus of the Klingon Negh'Var class vessel.


As you can see, my collection of these ships is quite small and only consists of an Eaglemoss and MicroMachine model.

Issue #46 of my Eaglemoss vs. The World articles is a bit of an exciting one for me.  With it, we take a good look at the Ambassador Class, which we all first learned about in the form of the Enterprise C.  With this ship being added to my collection, I am now just one Enterprise away from having all of the hero ships that Eaglemoss has produced to bear that name.  It was also cool that I finally got to this point in my collection considering Hallmark just produced the same ship this year for thier collection.


My current collection now consists of an Eaglemoss, a Furuta, a Hallmark and a MicroMachine model.

This next episode of Eaglemoss vs. The World is going to be a short one due to the fact that only one manufacturer makes a small scale pre-built and pre-painted model of this ship.  I am of course talking about issue #45, the Malon Export Vehicle.

Issue 44 of my Eaglemoss vs. The World series of articles brings us face to face with the Intrpid.


My current collection of this ship consists of an Eaglemoss, a MicroMachine and a Resin Modeler kit that I built and painted myself.

EMvTW Special 04 - Klingon D4 class

I typically buy my special edition Eaglemoss ships from a third party vendor rather than Eaglemoss themselves because I've heard horror stories of long waits for your model to eventually get to you.  I've used one particular vendor for the last two years but for some reason, Eaglemoss had been keeping them on hold as well.  I finally jumped ship, canceled the order and bought it off of eBay for a few dollars more.


My JJVerse D-4 Kligon Bird Of Prey collection currently consists of an Eaglemoss and a Hot Wheels model.

Eaglemoss decided to tackle the Species 8472 Bioship with thier 43rd issue.  I'm also happy to report that I actually have another manufacturer's version of this vessel to compare it with.


My collection consists of a whopping two versions of this ship, one from Eaglemoss and one from Furuta.

After I moved, money got a little tight so I canceled my Eaglemoss subscription.  A few months later, things are going good now, so last month, I ordered a batch of ships to catch myself up with where I would have been with the collection.  Quite frankly, I did not pay that much more getting the ships on eBay than I would have through the subscription so I decided to push ahead with the collection and go further than I would be had I simply started the subscription back up.  And thus, I have another 7 ships to talk about this month.  I'm rather excited about this batch of ships because I actually have other manufacturers versions to compare them to, which is the whole reason I started writing these articles.

The first of this new group of articles will be the Olympic Class, which we all know as the USS Pasteur (NCC-58525) as was seen in the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation, in the episode titled, "All Good Things".


My collection consists of an Eaglemoss, a Furuta and a MicroMachine version.

EMvTW 41: Klingon Raptor Class

This next Eaglemoss vs. The World is less of a comparative and more of a review since there is only one company that makes this ship in a pre-built and pre-painted format.


So, let us now take a look at the Klingon Raptor class of the 22nd century.  This ship appeared in Star Trek: Enterprise.  Eaglemoss continues it's excellent tradition of offering ships that others have not.  There is a resin model available on the internet that you can build and paint on your own, but when available, I prefer to get one that has been professionally done.
