Ravenstar Studios Romulan Valdore

Post by novahobbies » Mon May 13, 2019 8:29 pm

While I was gearing up to do a post about the newer Starcrafts version, I found a stash of OLD pics from 2006 and 2007.....the build photos of my old Ravenstar Studios kit! I put them together in a retro-review for you if you would like to see....this was quite a fun old model!!

Man that looks cool. Anyone know if anyone makes this kit now? I'm itching for an actual 1/1400 Romulan ship

I always thought it would be cool to see someone kitbash a pre-TNG Romulan warbird, perhaps from the Tomed incident or the Battle of Narendra III. There’s a cool YouTube CGI short of the latter featuring pre-TNG warbirds pummeling the E-C:



Nova, this also ties in to your post in Paul’s Dunbar class thread re: fleshing our the early/mid 24th c. ships!

I have a Ravenstar Valdore. Not sure I'll ever get to putting her together ;)

You really should if you have it. Obviously the SC kit is more accurate, but the differences are minor. And it's a great model when it's done, there's no arguing about that!

...as PATHETIC as this sounds, if I had still had my Ravenstar kit, I'd display both the RS and the SC kit together as different subclasses. :lol:
