The U.S.S. Defiant was introduced in STAR TREK: Deep Space Nine to be a defensive escort ship as a result of Starfleet’s recent bouts with the alien Borg collective. The ship was built for speed, maneuverability and firepower. This release of the U.S.S. Defiant model kit from AMT is a great choice for modelers transitioning from glue to snap kits. It is injected in white plastic to allow light to pass through for advanced modelers who enjoy working through lighting of their kits. The ship gets mounted to a sturdy metal tube atop a 7″ dome base. It includes pictorial assembly instructions and marking decals.
