The scale for each ship is bound to vary and for the collection itself it will be all over the place. That's the reason I didn't want to get these, it was one more collection of the same ships in variable scales relative to each other. Just within the last 20 years, we've had at least six collections of desktop ships, not even including those from Art Asylum/Diamond Select:

- Rawcliffe
- Micro Machines
- Johnny Lightning
- Hallmark (ornaments)
- Hot Wheels
- Eaglemoss

These also do not include those for tabletop games, such as ST:AW

That is a quite a collection.

So here is another question: For those who have the F-Toys Enterprises (TOS and Refit) are 1:2500. Has anyone put detail to those as well?

Oh yeah, completely forgot about F-Toys

BTW, I don't mean to imply I have all of the collections. I only have Rawcliffe, Johhny Lightning and Micro Machines.

Only F-toys I have are the NX & Defiant - and those are pretty detailed enough for me

from the official ones, they seem decent

I found a few things that can make them at least more accurate.
1) Using the decal scans, I can create them to the appropriate sizes and put them on the various ships.
2) There is some space with the pylons of the refit, pulling up to where they meet and fill with putty, they should stay in that position.
3) The refit neck may need to be bent until it is at the right angle and fill with putty to eliminate that droopy uneven look.
4) Maybe using some styrene, I can upgrade the Impulse engines for the Refit. The ones on there now are a bit short than what I have seen on the studio model.

Just throwing these out there. More will come.
