EMvTW 59: USS Relativity NCV-474439-G (Wells class)

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

As I started getting into collecting and wanting to expand my collection, I found a serious lack of  comparative data out there showing the various small scale pre-built and pre-painted ships available to the collector.  And so I set out to provide this information myself and hopefully help someone make a wiser decision in which model to buy.

The bittersweet news is that looking ahead, it appears that we will actually see very few comparative articles coming from me in the future.  I'm sad, as it means that my sole purpose for writing these sorts of articles is coming to an end.  But, I'm also happy in that Eaglemoss has far surpassed my wants in a manufacturer who would make models of ships that no one else has produced.   And unlike Hallmark, they are not wasting production time by producing the same model in an updated format every several years.  Check out my articles on the Galaxy Class and TOS Constitution Class to see what I mean.

This also means that writing these reviews is a rather quick affair.  So without further ado, here is my Eaglemoss vs. The World article about the USS Reletivity, a 29th century Wells Class ship of Starfleet design.



EMvTW 58: Borg Tactical Cube

I have been doing a lot of re-writing of my older Eaglemoss vs. The World articles so it feels like forever since I have brought you a new review.  In reality, it has only been a month.

This review is going to focus on the Borg Tactical Cube.


As I alluded to initially, I only have one manufacturer, Eaglemoss, to show off

3D Print Kit Interview: Tactical Game Systems 1:2500 MCS-7 Class Destroyer

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

I have started a new type of article here at Deepspace Pat.  Occasionally, I get into a very long interview process with the makers of the models that I review.  And in those cases, I walk away with a ton of interesting information that probably doesn't need to go into the review but instead warrants it's own article.

Consider this a sister article to my actual review of the Tactical Game Systems 1:2500 MCS-7 Class Destroyer.

You can read that review at THIS LINK.

Before we go any further though, Dave who owns and operates T.G.S. asked me to point out that the model I'm working with is a PROTOTYPE.  So please keep that in mind when reading my review.
