EMvTW 73: Renegade Borg Ship (Type 3)

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

And we now move on to the last one of the month from me, the Renegade Borg Ship, or as Starfleet calls it, a Borg Type 3.  We meet this ship in a Star Trek: The Next Generation's tewo part episode titled "Descent".

Eaglemoss brings us it's third Borg vessel in the regular subscription line-up, and it's fourth Borg ship if you count the massive subscriber gift cube.

I thinned out my collection a tiny bit and stored away a bunch of duplicate models as my Borg shelf was getting a bit crowded.  I like the new look a lot.

Here are several different angles of Eaglemoss' ship.  And when you initially view it from afar, it doesn't look like much.


As has been the case with recent Eaglemoss models, the sculpting and molding are crisp and clear.  I am however not a fan of the brick effect that they chose to cover the entire ship with.  It just doens't seem like the right kind of pattern to use.

The paint job really saves this model though.  Although the main part of the ship is a dull boring grey, Eaglemoss stratigicly painted the exposed areas a darker grey and then dotted those areas with fleks of blue and yellow.  These sections draw in your attention and that is when you really take notice to just how nice the entire model actually is.  While you are looking that close, you then notice all of those tiny windows that have been painted into the hull as well.

Although I was able to easily spot the joins and seams where the model was put together, thier locations make them look like they are part of the ship's design, and in my opinion, they blend well with the overall look.

This model doesn't have any of those famous Eaglemoss clear plastics, but I don't think it really needed it because of the nice paint job.

At around $24 on eBay (shipping included), the model makes for a great addition to your Borg ship collection.

As always, I hope you found this article useful and informative.  If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to comment below.

So for now, "Live long and prosper!!!"
