klingon bird of prey 1/350 Star Trek

Recommended Posts

Just got my re-released bird of prey from the states boxed in fiftieth anniversary packaging, for a princely sum of £36 inc p&p.

Its the updated release complete with metal undercarriage and associated bits.

Had a look in the box and wiped away the drool LOL, a bird sitting on its behind is very appealing for something a bit different to display, possibly painting HMS bounty on the side.

All the best chris

Ok chaps heres some photos;

Box art front, dont be fooled the box is smaller than the original box but the kit is still the same size.

The kit has had a number of incarnations and wrong scales on the boxes starting at 1/650 original release, she is 1/350 and the right size for display with the 1/350 enterprise.

As requested Dave heres some pics of the Romulan Warbird, again dont be fooled, it comes in the adversary 3 kit boxing or is available on its own, a lot of people think its a bigger kit, its not its simply a re boxing of of this kit as the ferengi marauder and smaller klingon bird of prey are available seperately.

Heres a link thats helpful with all the re-incarnations of star trek kits, its not 100% accurate but is close as there are a handful of omissions, you can trace the history of each kit, very helpful.

The Warbird is approximately 10 inches (250mm ) across, heres a comparison shot against ferengi and klingon included.

So as a word of advice buy the adversay set rather than the singletons, the boxed kingon and ferengi rrp for about £17, the warbird rrp £40, the adversary set rrp £23, i luckily picked up my original release for £15.

All the best Chris
