My 1:1000 TOS Enterprise
« on: September 24, 2012, 10:36:51 pm »
I thought I'd post another one of my completed kits in here. 

My parents came to visit us in Florida last Thanksgiving, and one of the places my father wanted to go was Kennedy Space Center.  While we were there, we found a little Star Trek section in the back of the gift shop, and they had a pile of Polar Lights 1:1000 TOS kits back there.  They were a bit pricey, but hey!  I was buying at KSC!  I decided to pick one up and build it. 

I have to say, this thing went together easily.  I really liked building this one.  I just built it up straight, with no lighting.  It looks really darn good, and I highly recommend this one to novice and experienced builders alike! 

So without further ado, my Space Coast Enterprise...




Builder of all things StarShip...

This is a great lil' kit.  I knew nothing of putty or seam filling at the time, and some of the fitting wasn't stellar, but as my second adulthood kit I really enjoyed this one.  My only gripe would be that the entire top of the command deck (??) dome is molded in clear, when it should only be the very top of the bridge.  I had a little success at masking that off and painting on mine but it's not really all that clean.  That, and the copyright info molded into the underside of the saucer section.

Did yours have the little nub at the front of the bottom half of the saucer section?
