Romulans….I really like their ships, the problem is not all that easy to get many classes of Romulan ships, and those that you can get aren’t available in fleet scale.
I very nearly caved and was about to purchase some micro machine Warbirds, Furuta also produce one, but neither is that big. The thing is The warbird is an immense size compared to virtually all other ships in the Star trek universe, so i wanted something that looked like it was going to be as close as i could make it to 1/7000. For a while it seemed the only option in terms of a larger ship was the Ertl Model kit….but this was sadly twice the size it should be and at £30+ each not really an option. I then started to take note of something I kept seeing on my Ebay searches….A Christmas tree decoration from 1995 by Hallmark. It turned out to be 5.5 inches long….it was around 1/8000 scale so that was close enough! You’ll need to pull out the hanging eye/hook, and also snip off the cable that would connect to your US christmas tree decorations light system!
I then tucked up the remainder of the cable and filled the hole with green stuff (it’s on the underside) before repainting. I may need another one so please remember to save one for me!!!!!
………then I also noticed that Star Trek.com/eaglemoss warbird also produced a rather detailed model…I purchased one of those as well (click on link above)….it turned out to be a tiny bit smaller than the hallmark version so I have changed it’s class, as it is too good not to use.
My other vessels are Talon Scout ships from the magnificent Starship adversaries and a couple of non canon Star trek Romulan vessels from sellers on Shapeways Romulan type ship 1 “Delon Kelahri” and Romulan type ship 2 “Dragohawk” there are others but i liked the look of these.
