Reman Scorpion Fighter

As labeled on the package the scale of the model is truly 1/24. The Fighter is 18,8cm long when it is assembled. This results in a length of 4,51m in 1/1. I bought the model kit a while ago.

This is the design sketch of the Reman Scorpion Fighter from Star Trek Nemesis. The Remans are seen for the first time in Star Trek Nemesis and I love the design of this ship because it looks Reman but is significantly influenced by the Romulan design.

According to the original schematic John Eaves designed the prototype of the model kit. It has therefore only small incorrectness to the original.

The kit itself is very accurate and nicely detailed. Nevertheless, there are some serious errors which I have corrected:
  • I replaced the bow and detailed it according to the original 
  • the seats I have given a pad 
  • the landing gear is designed after the original 
  • I have extended the struts
