Manufacturer:McDaniel's Models
Medium: Vacuform & Resin
Parts: 27
Status: Discontinued
Release Date: 1990
Skill Level:
This is one of the old McDaniel’s Models kits that was released in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The ship is classified as a scout, and also doubles as a Saladin Class ship, and is based on some of the original Franz Joseph designs. The ship is in scale with the original AMT TOS Enterprise kit. The design first appeared in the original Star Fleet Technical Manual that was released in 1975 (which I have a copy of, including the black plastic slipcover with the gold lettering).

The kit is primarily vacuform plastic, but there are lots of resin details. The vacuform parts include the upper and lower primary hull sections, port and starboard interconnecting dorsal halves, and the warp nacelle halves (for one nacelle). Everything else on this kit is a resin detail piece.

With all of the detail parts, this is definitely not a kit for a beginning modeler, but it might be a good first vacuform kit because of the small number of parts. Granted, there are a lot of resin detail bits, but the primary part of the kit has six parts.

Eight pages of assembly instructions were included, along with a fairly comprehensive decal sheet that included all of the markings and windows for the ship.

The completed kit measures about 13 inches long and 8.5 inches wide.
