Eaglemoss Star Trek Discast Metal and Plastic Parts Model
The diecast metal and plastic parts model of the Defiant measures about 4.5 inches long. and 3.2 inches wide. In this model it seems that the upper section of the ship is made up metal while the lower part and sides are made of plastic.
Throughout the model there are details such as sections, grid lines, windows/hatches, etc that are embossed onto the surface; this together with different color (silver, grey, red, black) highlights gives the model a very realistic and accurate look. There are translucent colored plastic inserts in the nacelles that further enhances its details.
A display stand is included. The base is made of metal and the attachable stand is made of translucent plastic which joins the model to the base.
The model comes packaged in a two half plastic clam shell and this comes enclosed in a cardboard box. The box measures 6.75 inches by 5 inches by 2.
These models are not made to an specific scale. They just seem to be made to fix a certain box size.
A magazine is included with the model. Each magazine is about the particular model (design, history, schematics, specifications, trivia, etc) and measures about 11 x 8 inches and has about 18 pages. The printing is very high quality with full colored pages. The covers have a glossy finish and thicker stock. The inside pages are also full colored and of thicker stock (but not as thick as the cover).
The magazine is in mint condition and will be shipped properly protected to remain like that.
This is not a toy. Although made of metal and of solid construction, it is quite fragile and will not survived being played with. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The USS Defiant (NX-74205) is a fictional starship in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9) and the feature film Star Trek: First Contact. The lead ship of her class and one of the Federation's first purpose-built warships, the Defiant first appears in the third-season DS9 episode "The Search, Part I", after which it plays a significant role throughout the series in the ensuing Dominion War. While the original Defiantis destroyed in the show's seventh season, Starfleet sends a replacement ship of the same class, the USSSao Paulo, which receives special dispensation from the Chief of Starfleet Operations to be renamed as theDefiant.
In the episode "Defiant", the character Gul Dukat describes the ship as "one of the most heavily armed warships in the Quadrant," while in the film Star Trek: First Contact, William Riker describes her as a "tough little ship."
