Ordered the STRANGE NEW WORLDS version of the Enterprise from Hallmark. Kind of an “honorable mention” in my starship collection, since seeing her on a clip from DISCOVERY actually got me misty.

Big disappointment. No effort made to capture the metallic sheen of the hull. Sloppy paint job. Soft modeling on the details.

Boo, Hallmark. You’re better than this!

This Lego Ferrari is proving a reeeeeealy tedious build. So many tiny pieces many of which are buried deep inside and seem to serve no useful purpose. Not a kit I can recommend.

Gave up on the Ferrari. About 2/3rds done but just so frigging BORING. No sense of accomplishment.

I’ve put the unfinished model on a shelf in my “Lego Room.”

Do you have your eye on a follow-up Lego model? 
Were you able to resist the Battlestar Galactica kit? (:

Definitely resisting the BSG kit.

Next from Lego? Have to wait and see what 2024 brings.

Paul, what is this Battlestar Galactica kit you spoke of? Lego?  I googled and came up with nothing.

Those are cool, Bill! I’ve so far been able to resist them, but I wouldn’t say no to the Saruman.

Hey Brett - 
I was referring to JB's earlier post:
**I see there’s a giant (61”) Lego-like Battlestar Galactica — for $3,000!I think I can resist.**
I bet that's a monster of a kit to put together!
