I agree.CessnaDriver said:The E has been mentioned by a rep as possibility a few years out.
I did buy a ship, had to return for failed lights, waiting on a replacement.
Price is steep sure, but a custom build up of the same thing would cost thousands more. Ain't perfect, but stunning in person. Attention to obscure details is amazing.
I love mine, and I doubt that they are taking a "beating" on the TOS E based on the most recent customer ratings.John Duncan said:Hard to say. I've heard nothing about any future releases.
With the beating they are taking over the TOS E release, I'd say no.
Imagine the difficulty of replicating the Refit's paint job if they can't get the TOS E's correct.
I have no problem with people who want accurate prop replicas. However, many folks want a model of what's on the screen. That is, after all, what the filmmaker intends to be seen. For those who want such models, their perceptions are the standard by which to judge a model.John Duncan said:...We tend to idealize our own perception of these fictional ships and after so many years of expectations, it's not hard to be dissatisfied by one company's "idealistic" version as opposed to our own...
...This has been the trouble with the TOS E, when the miniature was shown to have some weathering. Many decried the inclusion of that on the MR ship since they could not *see* it in the sfx of the show. So our perception gets us into trouble...
Ummmmm, how did you do that???? And what may I ask was the cost???Pyxl said:I hear you StarManmm....I went the other route and bought Cessna's from MR (or a reseller?) at a reduced price..granted the bridge lights don't work...she's still the best item I have in my collection.
It has:starmanmm said:C+.
Lets see if time will change this rating?
