carbon_dragon This is an interesting and workable kit. The upside is that you get a dreadnought exactly the right size. The downside is that this ship is part of the starter kit so you have to go buy an extra on eBay to do it. I like it a lot. Note that the pieces are good looking but a little brittle so be sure you know where you are gluing before you glue!
carbon_dragon The White Strong and Flexible surface is a little rougher then I like, but it paints up very well and looks good. For you Star Trek Attack Wing players, the Enterprise D next to the Enterprise J (this ship) is there for scale.
