|Terran Dominion. These are a newer fleet (ScanFed) from Ground Zero Games and were a bit harder to assemble than the FSE. Even some of the escorts were two pieces that often needed pinning. Any of the cruisers that have engines on the back came with them separately and needed them glued in. Starting from the escorts on the top left of the picture that have the gun sticking up a ways and up, you have to pin on the front flat part of the ship. The largest ship's front was 3 pieces but not too hard to assemble. Some of the engines were hard to glue in and drilling out the section they connect to helped a lot. These are harder to assemble than Games Workshop BFG pewter ships and the plastic ones, especially. Either way, these models are awesome and completely worth the work.
|Xenarch. These ships (Federated Stats Europa) were released a little before the ScanFed was and were much easier to work with. Only the largest 6 ships were more parts than 1 and the larger ships were only ever 4-5 pieces. My theory is that these ships were much easier to assemble because they are mostly horizontal and not near as vertical as the ScanFed ships.
