Stages 43+ Delayed

Due to the numerous ongoing delays in global shipping as a result of the pandemic, Eaglemoss does not have any stock of Stage 45 of our 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork model. Or, at least that is what I am being told. Either way, our build is delayed again.

I have seen other builders over in the UK have received up through Stage 58, so at least I know what is coming up. We will finish the top of the saucer hull and most of the port warp nacelle by the end of Issue 15. We can also look forward to starting on the lower skeleton of the saucer.

In the meantime, I am going to play around with some lighting ideas for the warp nacelles and see what I can come up with. More soon…

UPDATE November 17, 2021: I received a shipping notification that Stages 43-46 are on the way!

UPDATE November 18, 2021: On Facebook, Eaglemoss Collections Customer Service USA posted this update today with more info:

Good morning,
I wanted to provide a stock update on this collection and explain why some customers are “held” on shipments currently.
There is no stock available for the following stages as of this morning:
If you next shipment includes one of the above stages than I am sorry to say that we will not be able to dispatch until the stock is available.
Looking for the silver lining – stage 20 is due into port today, stage 26 should be in-bound to the warehouse and stage 52 will be booked in as available stock soon.
Once these stages are in the system, your shipments will resume as normal. If you are not waiting on the above stages and have not received a parcel for some time this may be due to a “free bonus” item being out of stock.
USA subscriptions are set up differently from the EU/UK and any “free bonus” items are locked into the cycle, this means the service team are not able to skip if out of stock.
I arranged for the introduction of an IOU notice as a trail run, this has now been adopted for most of our subscriptions. If any “free bonus” item is out of stock an IOU will be included and once that item is available, it will be included in your next parcel.
The highest stage we have in stock now is stage 58 with stages 59 to 70 due to reach US soil between now to the 5th of Dec.
We advise that there is at least a minimum of 14-day difference from port to warehouse and once on site the stock will be booked into our system.
I hope the above helps to explain the current situation for this build
Kind regards,
N.B. any dates provided are subject to change

UPDATE November 23, 2021: I have just received Stages 43-46 and also learned that Stages 47-50 are on the way!

  1. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with in regard the warp naecelle lighting since it appears inadequate for the model.

    Really enjoying your build instructions and mods. Fantastic job! Keep it up please!

      1. So I am taking my own sweet time on this build. Kit One got lost during shipment and I had to wait over three months for the reship. I have up to kit 12 at this point but I am only up to stage two.

        Question: at stage two you strip the blue paint and repaint the nacelles since you didn’t know what color the lighting was going to be. It appears now to be blue. Should I wait to repaint the nacelles blue? Your thoughts?

        1. Yes, the nacelle LEDs are indeed blue, but having my grilles be blue as well won’t hurt anything. You could likely leave them clear and it won’t hurt anything if you use the stock lighting.

    1. Hello, I have watched many of your videos – nice work! I am always looking to gather more information and learn from others. FYI – I just updated my BUILD page with the contents of Stages 59-62 in Issue 16.

  2. Looking forward to your suggestions for the woeful nacelle lighting. Also, perhaps a mod to light the black arboretum windows a nice blue colour?

  3. Hi I am still waiting for stage 26 of the Enterprise build. And my wife is waiting for the next stage of her Eleanor Mustang build. It’s December 8th and we have been waiting over 2 months. We haven’t started putting them together yet because this was going to be a winter project for both of us.
