I was expecting it to be fully painted but most of it is coloured plastic....albeit well done, with nice paint apps and subtle weathering (is there 'weathering' in space?). Nice detailing overall, very intricate. Faithfully represents a B'rel class Bird-Of-Prey with only minor concessions to its toy-like nature (eg for the sake of the movable wings there are push rods slightly visible from the rear, for example...no biggy).
The wing mechanism ratchets to 3 positions, down (attack), level (cruise) and up (landing and atmospheric manouvering). The mechanism is somewhat stiff but i wonder how well it will fair over time....the heavy wings may begin to sag a bit with repeated use causing the mechanism to wear, i fear. There is no setting for a slightly elevated wing position (as seen in the famous whaling trawler scene in Star Trek IV) but the wing joints are stiff enough that you can jocky them into that elevation, between ratchet points, and they will stay. Looks, way cool that way. :)
Lights are BRIGHT...almost too bright, as it hurts the eyes a bit to look directly at them. You can see through the plastic hull when the lights are on in a darkened room, which makes the model look very toy like but with some light in the room this see through effect cannot be noticed. The lights on mode is awesome...they will stay on until you turn them off. Great feature.
Stand is big and seems robust. No ball joint in it which is probably just as well as the weight of the BoP would probably cause it to flop on the ball joint anyway.
Would LOVE to see a USS Defiant to the same scale from Art Asylum some day (soon). 5 Stars.
Voice is done by Christopher Plummer. It has several phrases, lots of lights and just looks awesome. There is an LED only mode, which is pretty cool.
The only beef is that there are a couple of unfinished pieces at the back on each wing, near the primary hull. You can only see it from an inside angle from the back, but it's still bothersome.
Very well worth the money though. This is the third one have from this series, and they had all been excellent up until I received the "All Good Things" Enterprise, which was defective. I would like to point out how well the stand works on the Bird of Prey. It's very tight, allowing you to pose the ship in any position. I wish they could have done this with the entire series.
The paint looks a lot better on the toy than it does in the picture. I was a little worried about that, but it turned out well.

Well worth the buy for Star Trek fans, and a must have! It's large, extremely detailed, has moveable wings, and an assortment of spoken lines by Chang from Star Trek VI. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Sam
