Title: [AMT / Round 2 Enterprise Refit] 1:537 2018 Re-release
Post by: Gadgetron_3000 on October 26, 2017, 08:28:55 pm
Hi, Everyone!

Here are some newly-released details for the upcoming AMT / Round 2 1:537 Enterprise refit re-pop (kit number AMT1080):


Check out the attached pictures!

This is one of AMT / ERTL's "most challenging" Star Trek models.  The detail and accuracy issues have been well documented over the many years that it has been available.  If you like the 1:537 scale size (about 22-inches long), and you have the heart to tackle this one (hint: aftermarket parts will be your friends with a build like this), it will be released during the first part of 2018.

Stay tuned...

:)

If you plan on getting / building this kit, you might want to consider stocking up on some aftermarket parts:


Back in June 2015, I also purchased some of DLM's resin upgrade parts for this kit.  You can check out what I got here: http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=5082.msg68671#msg68671 (http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=5082.msg68671#msg68671)

Gadgetron...  Don told me he plans on shutting down at the end of the year.  I don't know if he was definite about that or not, but if anyone wants parts from him they should probably order them now.

Well, the way I see it, this is an opportunity for HDA or someone else to step in and provide similar products for a better service. I'm appreciative for what DLM has provided us all, but it's been over two months and I am still waiting for my order. If his business is dwindling so much, as he's said on his page, then I can't imagine why there is such a long turnaround time for processing orders. If his business is grinding to a halt, 10+ weeks is a bit ridiculous to wait to get my crap.

Hi, Everyone!

If anyone is interested, here is a picture of the decal sheet that is included in the AMT / Round 2 1:537 U.S.S. Enterprise Refit model re-release (kit number AMT1080).

As anyone who has collected and/or built the previous AMT and AMT / ERTL releases of the kit can see, these decals are a significant upgrade from previous sheets for this particular model.  Nice work, Round 2!

Also, as mentioned before, there will NOT be an aztec decals set release for this model.

:)

Gadgetron, do you still have the instructions for those decals? I lost mine and I'm kinda lost, do you mind posting a pic of it if you still have it?

thanks

From the looks of the model, even if getting rid of the grid lines would cost too much, Round 2 could have corrected some of the problems without much cost such as the bridge, the lower sensor dome, and the saucer window inserts.
