Nice job on the big E, still don`t like the design but you have made it look palatable.

Firemanstu, Thanks....this model is a PIG.....assembly was great , painting was a bit of a chore, but the biggest pain in the kiester was all the little and I do mean little decals on her....assembly took about a week and a half , painting about the same, but about a month to do all the decals and that was doing those for a couple of hours on the days I worked on it.....there were days I just had to walk away from doing this because it was beginning to hurt my eyes.....OY....mostly because I needed to use a magnifying glass to see what I was doing. Very glad I'm done with her .....the USS Ronald Reagan CVN 76) aircraft carrier) I'm working is almost done being assembled as all I need to do now is assemble the aircraft...then paint and decals should have her done by Wednesday.....and only started her on thursday Sept 1st.....

Great job Gary. I used the same kit to do my lighted-up with sound version & I do not know how many hours it took to just construct and paint the model. I had to modify some of the tail section, as the kit was not accurately moulded in places. Being a Trekkie fan, I appreciate all models of the Enterprise. However, the NX-01 is still, in my opinion, the best version. I have also built the NCC-1701-D which I rate second to the NX-01.

Cheers from Robbo.

Very Nice
That is one of 2 ENTERPRISE kits I do Not have a Styrenen kit of!!

I have a RESIN NX-01, but I am not sure I want to try that one
It is small
Likely close to 1/1000 like the Snap kit from P-L

The C is the other version I need to find.
I have all the others!!
But my Cutaway issue TOS needs the decal sheets
Mine got lost before I got it home!!!

I don't have Revell's JJVerse version yet either. (is it available here in the US yet???)
Though I do have a couple PAPER kit of that one!!

I think I have Paper kits of ALL Enterprise variations
NX-01, TOS, Movie Refit/A, B, C, Next Gen's D, E, even J from that one episode of Enterprise

FREE is ALWAYS Nice!!!!!!!!

And NO I have Not built one yet!!
Just got this Tower working again with an OS Recovery!!
Still finding Software to re-install!!!!!!!
At least I hope this one will Still See my Printer!!

CRAPtop that Blew last Month Lost the ability to see the Printer, so I could Not Print anything!!


Now I have to figure out why an older DELL Tower will NOT see the Keyboard!!
Or see it, But NOT let it work!!!

I used an OLD ps2 connected DELL keyboard the first time I started it and Fine.
Last time, Nothing
Opened Wordpad & Notepad, and Nothing showed on either as I typed!!!!

Tried a usb keyboard
got the pop ups 'New Found Hardware, Interface device, Logitech Keyboard, etc
Including 'Your device is installed and ready"
Still NO effect!!!!!
I believe that tower is Dying
it had sat for 3-4 years unused!!!

Hey Dan , I have the decal sheet from the cutaway version which has all but decal #14.....if you still want it it's yours send me a pm as to where to send it. I have no use for it...as I'm acquired aftermarket decals for the Enterprise and for the tug I'm going to build....Gary.

hey guys , I saw somewhere that they are coming out with all the starships Enterprises in one kit all to the same scale, i think it was 1/2500 but dont quote me on that part....for once it will be nice to see all of them in the same scale to see just how they compared to each other...Gary

Yes, they are 1:2500, set is cadet series so snap fit and has all the enterprises NX,1701, A - E.

Last I heard on one of the trek boards was an expected release sometime in Quarter 2, no price known.

I believe all but the NX are from the original 3 ship sets
I have the Chrome version of the TOS, Movie/A, and Next-Gen D
Still looking for the original second set B, C, & E
re-issues mixed them
Might still get those if I can
I will Look for the new ALL Enterprise set, but expect that to be $45.oo-60.oo!!!

Postby EdselDan on Sat Feb 11, 2017 1:30 pm

Yea, I was expecting it to be Up there
But 70.oo!!!!

I will HAVE to pass
As I said
I have the TOS, Movie refit/A and D in the Original Pre-Cadet
set
My set being a Special Edition Chrome one
I have been trying for the original second set B, C, & E kit, but No luck so far
Also since that second set was never offered Chromed, I would actually need the first set
for all to match

I have seen the Cadet series Trek kits at Michael's & Hobby Lobby, but.....
At the prices I passed them due the the Tiny size of the finished build

Only the TOS Enterprise & 2 ROMULAN owned Klingon ships in the "Enterprise Incident"
are Smaller
But that kit had Lights & Sounds
I have 3 of that kit and am looking at building number 2

I just need to replace the battery boxes supplied by Ertl
the 2 in my first build snapped apart on me when the batteries were left in only Over Night!!!!!

I have them "repaired" with Wire
I will add a DC adapter power supply to the next one I built to be able to activate
the lights and different audio tracks Without using batteries!

I'll admit seems to be a bit high, but any trek fan will most likely get them anyway. I'll probably find a way to get 2 of them one for me and another for my brother who is a HUGE Trek fan....I'll build it for him as he isn't into building models.....Gary ps I still saving money to get some more things from SSB Resins as I still want the engine and squad models, plus if he still is planning to come out with either or both the tiller and the aerialscope ...his engine and squad models are about 150ish and both trucks are around 5 franklins each....
