Just picked it up, I'll try to keep my review brief.
Nice, I like the smaller size, as free shelf space tends to shrink
over the years. Also, the TOS Enterprise doesn't have a lot of surface
detail that a larger model would bring out.
Of course, you make all 3 production versions AND the ISS Enterprise
Mirror universe ship with the decals. The Mirror Universe ship will be
the first variant I build!
Decals are great - offers water slide and plastic stick-ons for
amateurs (Man I would have LOVED that as a kid in the 70s!)
Decals for windows and all colored panels, markings all over the ship.
Plastic is a bit soft, but as there aren't many surface details
anyway, its not a problem.
The small size will be great for variants and different ship configs -
I've always wanted to make the TOS tug kit - and it will be very easy
to convert with this kit. Ditto the Scout ship.
The only complaint I have is the copyright information molded onto the
bottom of the primary hull, next to the dorsal connector. Wont be hard
to remove, but must be careful not to sand too much off to upset the
gently reverse curved underside of the primary hull.
Lots of clear plastic parts for those who want to light theirs also -
running lights on primary hull, bridge, bottom hull dome and nacelle
I give it an easy A. And the extra unused parts will be great
additions to my spares box.
