Romulan Bird-of-Prey   4"   4.5"

Gaining its name from the bold pattern of an alien bird's feathers painted on the ship's ventral hull, the Romulan Bird-of-Prey was the successor of a 22nd century counterpart of similar design. The Federation Starfleet first encountered this vessel in 2266, when a single ship of this type crossed the Romulan Neutral Zone and attacked several border outposts, destroying them utterly. The USS Enterprise responded to the alert and engaged in a tense game of cat-and-mouse with the intruder for more than ten hours, before the Bird-of-Prey was destroyed. (TOS: "Balance of Terror") The Romulans later used larger numbers to patrol their border with the Federation in force. Typically during an incursion, one Bird-of-Prey will bring a starship out of warp with a plasma torpedo to allow the ships in its battle group to attack the target en masse. When the Enterprise violated the Neutral Zone on the orders of Commodore Stocker in 2267, it was ambushed by a squadron of ten Birds-of-Prey. (TOS: "The Deadly Years")

Eaglemoss STAR TREK

The Eaglemoss Collections "STAR TREK" range presents highly-detailed, ready made diecast models of "STAR TREK" starships including the most significant vessels from all five STAR TREK TV series, including dozens of ships that have never been produced before. Each ship has been painstakingly recreated in die-cast metal and high quality ABS and then painted by hand.

Best of all, many editions come with a special collector’s magazine (See photos) that provides an in-depth profile of the ship, with detailed annotations, and a breakdown of the technology on board, its crew and weapons. Exclusive behind-the-scenes articles, complete with original design sketches, reveal how the ship was designed. There is an informative examination of the shooting model (or models) used by the VFX team, and a history of the ship’s on screen appearances.

Eaglemoss "STAR TREK" diecast starships feature:

  • Diecast metal construction with some plastic components.
  • Realistic surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Presentation stand to display the ship "in flight".
