This is the Klingon Bird-of-Prey (BOP) that was created for "Star Trek III: The Search For Spock". The miniature then was used countlessly in almost every movie and also on all later TV shows. Since DS9 also as a CGI model.

Because of this excessive use of the studio miniature and stock footage of it and due to the limitations of the filming techniques back then, the ships size is probably one of the most discussed topics on fans besides who is better, Picard or Kirk? ;-) This is also made worse because the miniature sometimes was scaled up or down intentionally to create as ship at a size as "requested" by the script. There is an excellent article about "The Bird-of-Prey Size Paradox" on

To make things not too complicated i decided to list all of my models with the scale for the 110m version. Because i can not provide miniatures for all the countless other figures out there, i decided to list the approx. scales for other possible sizes. It is up to you which one of these is the B'rel, the K'Vorth or the D-12 or whatever. For me there is just one BOP at 110m.

If you need this in another material, size, or quantity, send me a message. I will try to make it as you need. Be sure to read my comments below my shop page first.
