Next up in my photos of older models which I’m posting up, and further continuing the Star Trek theme, here is the USS Leeds of the Nebula class. This is a resin model of the Nebula which I bought forever ago and sorry I can’t remember which company made it.
The USS Leeds (NCC-70352) was a Federation Nebula-class starship that was in service with Starfleet in the late 24th century. In 2372, the Leeds docked at the space station Deep Space 9. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)]. The Leeds was the Nebula-class vessel seen during the DS9 opening credits in seasons 4-7. While the registry number and name are not visible in the appearances on screen, the model of the ship used has been photographed bearing these markings. Michael Okuda has stated that, during the credits sequence, the Leeds model appeared on screen with that label.
The kit is nicely detailed and includes the essential lifeboats and windows (unlike the Galaxy Class kit) which allow it to be painted up in a reasonably detailed way. I can’t say much about the building of the model as honestly I can’t remember much about it.
And another attempt at a composite image.
