Is the AMT S970 Star Trek The Motion Picture Enterprise the one that has the smooth hull with no brick pattern?

Yep.  AMT / Lesney kit number S970 (North American release) and Matchbox kit number PK-5110 (European release) are the 1980 1:537 "smoothie" releases of the AMT Enterprise refit model.

 Ok...tomorrow is B-Day (bird day) I hope all goes well, next time we talk I will either be very angry or extremely happy :)

 I added a couple more coats of Future on the lower hull to smooth it out as much as I could so I don't have any issues sliding this big decal into place.

Loving it!  Inspired by Star Fleet Battles?

Cheers,

No its actually supposed to be a representation of the romulan D-7 from the remastered TOS episode "The Enterprise Incedent" but I do remember that game.

Members Current Projects (WIP) / Update - $%#@ fantail!
« Last post by neilfsmith on April 12, 2018, 12:28:44 pm »
Final wiring on the secondary hull was completed last night and then the pylons and neck were glued in place.



The fantail proved to be quite a struggle. I don't know if this was a result of the order in which I glued things together or not, but it really didn't want to stay up against the edges of the hull walls. The angle of the fantail was a few degrees off once the roof of the secondary hull was glued into place. Some CA glue to "tack" it in place was needed followed by a generous portion of model cement. I'm going to let everything sit for a day or so to cure.





All the wiring from the nacelles, secondary hull and neck need to be spliced here into a much smaller number of wires that will join the wires from the saucer tether in connecting to the board in the base.



More later...

Every time I hear about this kit, this theme runs through my mind:

It's about 6200 yen, but I got mine for about 5000 since I preordered it. As with any other anime-related kit, Hobby Search, Amiami, or HLJ should have one for you.

Thankee-sai!

sealing components of the 1:350 kits always makes me cringe in fear.  Good job with the build so far.  She's looking fantastic!

Modelers Questions Board / A dilemma of sorts with the Enterprise-D
« Last post by Grue on April 11, 2018, 06:14:37 pm »
Fellas,

there's two strips along the edge of the Enterprise-D's saucer section. Both have black bands or lines on them/ The AMt.R2 kit only has one of the sections as having the bands.

I want to cut away the top part of the edge of the saucer and the bottom band of the model I'm going to be assembling and affis the once-upper band to the lower saucer.

Unless you know of an easier way.

[edit] to the dilemma i face is whether or not to bother doing that, spending the money for another kit just to do that. Or, make it look as realistic as possible. On the one hand, it's already pretty inaccurate. On the other, why not polish it up a bit?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
