Trek Author and Project Manager for Eaglemoss/Hero Collector's 'The Official Starships Collection' Ben Robinson joins Brandon and Robbie in the shipyards for the pod's first episode of 2021. They speak about research and reference for model accuracy, modeling ships with detached nacelles, evolution of ship design, and the special edition Regula I model. An expanded chat with Ben is exclusively available to our patrons at or above the Constitution-class tier on Patreon. Also, your answers to the latest Community Q are discussed, a new question is shared, and this week's All Hands on Deck Drill sees the community become Chancellor of the Klingon High Council (and thus leader of the Empire) for a day. Hailing frequencies are always open at www.shiptalkingpod.com or email email@example.com.
