Overall Rating       Good kit, but with some problems.
Comments With the exception of some minor surface flaws, I thought this was a great little kit. It is detailed and is so easy to put together. Really it is the painting that you will spend the most time with and even that isn't too involved. I would highly recommend the new JT Graphics decals that you can buy on Federationmodels. They are so much better that there is simply no comparison. The decals are nice and thin and drape well over the model. I think this kit is worth it and makes a great addition. The stand it comes with is a little weak though. Better to make your own.

Overall Rating       Not good at all. You really have to want it bad.
Comments This kit is plagued with problems, Almost all of the windows are deformed, and at different depths. Details on the upper aft of the ship are faded to where they are almost gone. The bottom half of the rear of the ship has no detail and is out of shape. This is definately one I would recommend for the intrepid builder whom is not affraid to reform surface detail, Perhaps this may sound harsh for a model that is the only game in town for this subject, but StarCrafts could do better, In my opinion.

Comments This was my first resin kit. I ordered it from federation models and recieved it in 4 days. after i opened it i noticed a few bubbles on the nacelles fixable though. It took me about a week to build it i enjoyed it. even though i had to fix some of the inconsistencies in the mold. i recommend this model especially if its your first resin.

Comments I like this kit, but it also has some problems. The trouble with the windows is the same in my kit. Some surface details on the lower side could have been done much better I'am sure. But the topside of the models saucer is great I think. Those details look realy good to me. Even so I like those already red-casted bussard-ramscoops. That's something I would like to see on more models as well, of course it's a good idea. Otherwise this kit isn't to difficult to put together and could be a great weekend project.
