I waited eagerly for this to be released since the Playmates version a few years ago was poor resemblance to the Excelsior-Refit Class Enterprise-B. Much to my disappointment, this wasn't much better. Diamond Select have done a great job getting the layout and dimensions of the Excelsior Class sorted however there is several issues with the ship:
There is dirty marks / permanent marks all over the ship Half of the blue colour is missing from the Secondary Hull underneath. The side 'banner' states USS Excelsior not USS Enterprise B The detail to the neck could have been better
Overall, for it to be displayed on a shelf it looks good and easily trumps the looks of the Playmates version however for accuracy and expectations it was a bit of a let down.
