Here is a news article from Figures.com. Just copied and pasted the whole thing down below.

Eaglemoss produces this line of Star Trek ship collectibles known as “The Official Starships Collection”. I’ve seen them in stores and they are pretty high-quality stuff. The basic line consists of ship models that are roughly 5 inches long, so they’re large enough for a lot of sculpting details and still small enough for desk display. I have been occasionally tempted but the reason I don’t collect these is the lack of a cohesive scale — they just made everything 5 inches long, whether it’s a shuttlecraft or a Borg Cube. It’s a personal preference, but I would much rather display things in scale with one another. Other than that, this is a fairly comprehensive line of collectible Trek ships (they are on their 100th release!).
