1/350 TOS Enterprise finished up
« on: February 20, 2017, 11:56:00 am »
Hello all  :)

I just finished up my 1/350 scale TOS USS Enterprise.
 It was an interesting build to say the least with lots of ups and downs. I learned a lot..that's for sure!
 I designed this ship with chiller grills that can be lit with the flick of a switch. I wanted that choice so I could still be true to the real studio model, as well as being able to represent the ship as Gene Rodenberry would have liked to have it if it had been possible at the time. (It also looks cool with them lit!  ;D )
I also made a custom lit base for it.
Overall I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Here are some pictures submitted for your approval. I hope you enjoy them. :)

Congratulations Kevin!  Having one "350" ship is an accomplishment, but two just puts you in a different league;)  Really beautiful and right up there with Boyd's work.  As I often do with my "350" Refit, I can see you in a darkened room just staring at the coolness of these ships, and feeling proud;)

I'e just been reading your build log and I must say you've done her proud. Love the lit nacelles, and seeing her next to the Refit looks stunningly impressive.

Well Done Kevin
