1/600 Resin Shuttle type ‘F’ from Green Strawberry

During the mid-2260s, class F shuttles were based at starbases and aboard Constitution-class starships, which were standard equipped with four shuttles of this class, along with other shuttle classes. (TOS: “The Galileo Seven”, “The Doomsday Machine”, “The Omega Glory”; TAS: “Mudd’s Passion”, “The Ambergris Element”) The class F shuttlecraft remained in service until the 2270s, when they were still being deployed to and from the San Francisco air tram station. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture Directors Edition).

Kit is primarily designed as set for Revell kit 04880.

Just in from our friends at Green Strawberry. This is a resin 1/600 Star Trek Shuttle type ‘F’ TOS.
This tiny model kit is very cleanly cast in resin. It comes with markings for your choice of:

  • Galileo NCC-1701/7
  • Columbus NCC-1701/2
  • Setar NCC-1631/4
  • Picasso SB11-1201/1

There’s is also a small photo etch fret to depict the center leg pad detail. The kit doesn’t have a lot of parts to fiddle with but worth mentioning that as usual with Green Strawberry, the instructions are very clear and straightforward. Decals go without a hitch but you will literally need a magnifying glass. The decal sheet seems to have been covered completely with the clear film carrier so I suggest to cut your decals as close as possible to the art.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

Nice set to accompany your 1/600 Revell kit with no lines from the 3-D printed versions to deal with.
Well worth the $13.99 price for 4 Shuttles, decals and photo etch fret.
Highly recommended!

My sincere thanks to Green Strawberry for this production sample.
