I’ve been paying attention to my “needs” versus my “wants” WAY too closely of late, so today, I decided to slip a “Want” in for good measure. 🙂 All right…here’s a snap of the Enterprise kit I assembled and detailed not too long ago…
Now, have a look at what I bought today…
That kit in the background has been on my “want list” for a GREAT deal of time, and I finally was able to snag it. 🙂 If you’re wondering, the kit will finish out at 35 inches long from the front of the saucer to the back tip of the Nacelle…yes, that’s an inch less than a YARD long! 🙂 To say I’m excited would be an understatement; let me finish out the post with a few more shots comparing the sizes of these ships; I pulled the saucer out of the box to take these. It’s gonna take me a LONG time to assemble this…heck, right now, I have to get all the parts out of the box and wash off all the factory nonsense left on the pieces before priming them for paint; that’s a “let them sit and dry overnight” process in and of itself! 🙂 Anyway…here’s some more shots; hopefully, this one turns out as good if not better than the first one I did. 🙂
Greetings from Texas,
This is going to be great, Tony. I know they are doing wonderful things with computer animation (SP?), but I miss the days of professional model builders creating those wonderful large scale models for movies. Someday I hope to see the fifteen foot long Enterprise in the Smithsonian.
It’s sad to think there will never be such a model for the new movies.
And it’s not like there aren’t talented people out there who can build them…wonder if this link’ll work?
That’s a 6 foot long SCRATCH build of the Enterprise from wood and fiberglass! He made this from the ground up with NO factory parts or decals; simply amazing!
