Revell USS Voyager

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The year was 1996. The year of Euro '96 and that Gareth Southgate penalty, of Alanis Morrisette and the Spice Girls, and I imagine other things happened too. For a sci-fi geek like me, however, the big moment was the (UK) launch of a new Star Trek series, Voyager, with the franchise's first (white) female captain, a promise of some interesting outlandish places to discover, as the ship was lost millions of miles from Earth, and most importantly a brand new starship. The show never held great interest for me and I think I gave up on watching it religiously after season 3 or so, but I remember visiting Toys 'R' Us (RIP) at the time and picking up a brand new model kit of the titular ship. I'd been used to building the AMT ships, but this "Revell" company were new to me. It was a decent model and I had fun with it, although back then I didn't really have the patience to build it properly, nevertheless it was a fond memory.

 

Thankfully, it's been reissued a couple of times by Revell, and the latest rebox includes the shuttle that was only included in a later Special Edition version of the kit, released by Monogram in the US I believe. So she's ready for a proper build this time, ready for priming - let's see what the weather does here, as I usually spray outside. For the moment, here's the obligatory sprue shot, as well as a pic of the original issue box art. LLAP.

Welcome to the GB and thanks for the 96 revival. 🕺🏻

fantastic to see some sci-fi on here. Is that like a regular sci-fi scale 1:677?

Welcome along and with our first Sci-fi subject.

I really like the Voyager series but never had the inclination to build any models from it so I'm interested to see how this turns out.

Ah. Looks like you're trying to hotlink from Google Photos, the links quickly expire so it doesn't really work for forums. 

 

Try one of these options instead:

Well I did some priming and it turns out this kit is not especially great. Dry fitting revealed a few fixes needed, including big spaces on the secondary hull, so that'll be fun. Flash (aa-aaah) everywhere, too.
