These ships possess an insectoid-like appearance, consisting of a large main body with two thin warp nacelles at the sides. Typically, this class of vessel would be seen on screen in formation with other smaller ships; and so the individual models would feature less elaborate construction details than are present on some of the larger starship filming miniatures. Each Jem Hadar Fighter exhibits an iridescent purple paint scheme combined with red and gold highlights. The two warp nacelles feature a green luminescent paint that glows when subjected to black / ultraviolet light. Each model measures approx. 7" x 8" x 1" in size and has a hole drilled through the center of the ship from the top for mounting on a support rod during filming. These fighters remain in excellent, screen used condition and come directly from the collection of Star Trek VFX Supervisor Gary Hutzel.
The following images of the Jem Hadar models in Star Trek Auction V as well as similar miniatures that were part of the Hutzel collection are shown courtesy of Propworx and Doug Drexler.
