This ship has been painstakingly recreated in die-cast and plastic materials then hand painted with an incredible level of detail. The vehicle also comes with a full color collector magazine. Vehicle measures approximately 4-1/2 inches long x 3-3/4 inches wide x 2-1/2 inches tall (mounted on base).
Academy flight training craft were types of spacecraft flown by Starfleet Academy cadets.
In the TNG episode "The First Duty", this type of sub-light vessel was flown in the 2360s by Nova Squadron, who in 2368 attempted a, by then banned, five craft formation Kolvoord Starburst maneuver near Titan.
The Academy cadet ships were small, one-pilot, blunt-winged vessels, with a fairly flat cross-section; pilots had to wear flight helmets. The craft were equipped with landing struts, proximity alarms, and emergency transporters.
The fully illustrated magazine includes details on the Orion Scout Ship's design and specifications as well as an interview with Wil Wheaton on Wesley Crusher.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 130 ships in total.
