Your Two Cents: USS Reliant

The following are reader's opinions of the USS Reliant made by Starcrafts.

Overall Rating       Good kit, but with some problems.
Comments I found that the kit had some ream lines that when removed, alters or obliterated surrounding detail like the sensor bands around the hull and windows. None of the windows seemed of uniform depth/consistency. Better to file or sand away the sensor strips and fill the windows and get the JTGraphics detail sheet. The "bussards" of the nacelles are jagged and hard to fix.

Being so small, it's understandable how some of the finer detail can't be captured in what could be a really good kit if it were somewhat bigger rather than having to stick to the same old 1/1400 scale. Even another inch would have done wonders for this kit.
