An authentic-to-scale micro replica of Star Trek’s most elegant yet feared battle-cruiser-class starship, the Klingon Bird-of-Prey.
The model's wings are moveable to the neutral or downward positions. The model can be mounted on a stand, or suspended in mid-air with invisible line.
The Bird-of-Prey is aptly named due to the bird-like shape of its wings and hull, and its ability to cloak (i.e., turn virtually invisible), hunt-down and destroy vessels. It has a length of 110 metres, carries a crew of 12 to 36 men, and travels at a maximum speed of warp 9+. Its armament consists of one photon torpedo launcher and 2 disruptor canons. Its defenses consist of deflector shields and a cloaking device that renders the ship virtually invisible until it powers-up its weapons to attack (albeit there is an experimental variant that can fire its weapons while under cloak). The ship’s wings move in an upward position (for takeoff and landing - not possible for this micro model), a neutral position (for normal flight), and the classic downward position for purposes of attack. The ship has a periscope so that the captain can personally target an enemy ship's weapons systems or engines.
The photos depict the following:
