The Enterprise D is BACK!

The last time I received any parts for my 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build-up was June 2022. Then, in July 2022, the entire distributor Eaglemoss/Hero Collector just flat went out of business.

Now, after more than half a year, our Enterprise D is returning back to life through Fanhome! And thankfully, they are allowing ex-Eaglemoss subscribers resume our subscriptions from any point – in my case the next shipment will be Issue 22 with Stages 83-86.

As of right now, they can only ship to the USA, UK, and Germany. The links to be notified when we can sign back up are found below:

Shipments are expected to begin by the middle of March in the USA, but as early as the end of January 2023 for UK/DE customers. Additionally, Fanhome has said that FREE GIFTS will be included along the way, but they may be different than what Eaglemoss offered.

I have had a great experience with Fanhome so far and am looking forward to completing my Enterprise D!

UPDATE May 25, 2023:

Fanhome has said that returning US/UK/DE ex-Eaglemoss customers will have until around the end of 2023 to re-subscribe. This is to allow for excess stock to be released in other countries. If you have not subscribed yet and plan on it, now would be the time. If needed, you can subscribe and contact Customer Service to put up to 3-months hold on your deliveries.

UPDATE April 26, 2023:

The Enterprise D is now available for pre-order (new customers) and re-subscribe (returning customers) in the US/UK/DE! I have signed back up and if you are doing the same, head on over to!

UPDATE April 12, 2023:

Fanhome has announced that this build will be available for PRE-ORDER on April 26, 2023 in the US/UK/DE. At that point, we should be able to use the links above to re-subscribe. The expected shipping start date for these subscriptions is in July 2023.

UPDATE April 24, 2023:

Fanhome has provided a more detailed estimated ship start date of the 17th of July. As they now have a full picture of stock amounts around the globe, they still need to produce more stock and print any needed magazines.

UPDATE April 26, 2023:

As promised, Fanhome has now opened our Build the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D partwork build for re-subscribing (previous Eaglemoss customers) and for pre-order (new customers) – these options are different buttons on the website. The shipping start date is tentatively set for July 17th of this year.

NOTE: There may be an issue seeing the pop-out menu when using a device with a small screen width (such as a mobile phone or tablet in portrait orientation). I recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with a large screen. This errant behavior is being investigated by their IT team.

  1. This is great to hear, but as for my own build — it ended up in a dumpster. I was about 2/3rds done with the saucer top before the plug got pulled by Eaglemoss, and I was admittedly exhausted with the hundreds of windows and struggles to get the hull panels flush with the other panels. That’s more of an issue with my own personal modeling skills than the kit itself though. I think with the right people building this huge replica, it’ll be quite the beauty. I’m just going to sit back and enjoy your build completion online. I look forward to watching your expert build process.

    1. The latest information I have is that Fanhome is still organizing the mess that Eaglemoss left behind regarding issue stock, where it is located, how many are missing and need to be manufactured, etc. There is no current ETA for subscription restarts at this time, but I stay in regular contact with Fanhome. When I know, I will share anything I learn of course.

  2. I cannot wait and I have dismantled my ship and sits on my dresser. Going to start from scratch along with your tutorials. The long wait is sure worth it. Like to get everything that you guys use for the reassembly.

  3. I’m thinking of starting this when it becomes available in July and following your lead on mods. I do find in interesting that Fanhome list this as 26 inches long, 8 inches wide and 5.7 inches high. I think they’re a bit off on the size…. lol

  4. How many months to finish the D? 24-25? Near as I can see Fanhome site does not say (I admit to being wrong before!).

    1. Currently, Fanhome does not ship to Spain. It is very possible they will include Spain in the future, but I don’t know when. In the meantime, there are forwarding services in the UK and Germany that can send the issues to you at an additional cost if you so choose.
