3788 Scale Romulan KR Heavy Cruiser WEM

3D printed in white nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
The Romulans had been unable to develop warp technology on their own because each of the Great Houses did their own research and refused to share their findings with other Great Houses. When the Klingons provided warp technology under the Treaty of Smarba, the Romulans began to convert their old Warbird-series sublight designs into Eagle-series warp designs, but this would take decades and the resulting ships were not as effective as the Romulans wanted. While waiting for the Hawk-series ships that were designed from the keel up to use warp, cloaks, and plasma torpedoes, the Romulans bought a few D6 heavy cruisers from the Klingons and refitted them to use cloaks and plasma torpedoes. (The Klingons never threw away a weapon, and mothballed D6 heavy cruisers as they were replaced by improved D7s and the continuing production of D6s.) The result was the KR, the first of the Kestrel-series of converted Klingon warships. It is sometimes referred to as “Klingon-Type Battlecruiser (KR).” Besides the change in weapons, this ship includes a belly bird, scallops on the wings, and Romulan insignia for ease of distinguishing these ships from their Klingon counterparts.

The ship is available in a variety of materials. (Smooth Fine Detail Plastic makes an excellent cloaked ship!)  Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
