On this week’s video release on my channel, we look at the USS Rio Grande NCC-72452.

This Danube Class runabout was regularly seen on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The Rio Grande was the first vessel to discover the Bajoran wormhole in 2369 and, was the only Starfleet runabout to remain operational at Deep Space 9 for the following years.

The design was done by MiniTrekMocs and is made up of 50 pieces of Lego slightly more than the Delta flyer that I covered last time.

This is the second of the 38-ship collection that I have reviewed.

I like how again it captures the look and essence of the runabout using so few pieces.

I must commend MiniTrecMocs on how his designs can be built by anyone regardless of experience with Lego.

The instructions were very clear and easy to follow.

The instructions can be bought on their website (

When you buy from him what you get is the following:

Step-by-step instructions

You are not getting the Lego pieces. You can purchase them from either BrickLink & Brick Owl. Using the CSV or XML file to create a ‘Wishlist’ of parts needed. You can then upload that Wishlist to the website. From there you will be able to get the pieces you require.

With it being only 50 pieces, it is a cheaply priced kit to build.

Don’t forget to look in your own Lego collection for pieces that you may have as this will always reduce your costs.

In summary, it is a good-looking build and is easily built by anyone young or old… Give it a go and build it yourself and, I hope you enjoy building it.

Until next time, Keep building Ian (Trekcatcatcat)
