  1. Last week my son pointed out the left hand warp nacelle had fallen off my Enterprise model onto one of my 1/32 Spitfires (don't be alarmed - it was fine!). Getting it out revealed the whole model was badly in need of a visit to spacedock. The fillers had cracked open and the varnish I used to use as a sealer had yellowed substantially. I subsequently pulled it apart a it more to bring it up to a more reasonable standard. I made this over 20 years ago and my skills have advanced a little since then. It is badly-fitting and will need some decent filling. I'll also need to wo
  2. LAST FEW REMAINING! The new Polar Lights 973 - 1/1000 Star Trek Discovery U.S.S. Enterprise - https://abovebeyondretail.co.uk/polar-lights-973-1-1000-star-trek-discovery-u-s-s-enterprise/ , these will sell out fast so be quick if you want one. We have a great range of scifi kits in stock, be sure to take a look around the store www.abovebeyondretail.co.uk
  3. Calling this one done..... You can see the build log by clicking here.......Space Seed Build Log A nice build to do, even though it was a snap fit, some of the fittings were very tricky and didn't quite sit right. You had 3 choices to build in the kit which was great. The decals were easy to soak and released very easily, though they were complex in their layout and did tend to break a lot as they slid off of the sheet. Esepecially the registration markings on the secondary hull and the nacelles. The Original pilot episode enterprise from the "The Cage". the
  4. So finally, after many months of delay due to 'family things' I've found some time to post a few images of my finished Enterprise! You can see my 'work in progress' thread at Revell Enterprise NCC1701 (TOS) - My First Model, which includes lots of photos, some better than these tbh. As mentioned previously, this was my first model. I've learned a lot so far and enjoyed every minute of the build (apart maybe from masking the windows before paint spraying). I really need to get a decent camera and video camera. I used my phone and these are pretty poor quality
  5. USS Enterprise CVN-65 Part 2 Eduard 1:350 With part 1 released last month and reviewed HERE, Eduard have now released Part 2. Flight Deck Equipment and Aircraft, (53-224). This single sheet set covers a lot of the deck equipment that comes with the kit, plus a lot of additional detail for each of the aircraft. Some of the deck equipment is completely replaced with PE vehicles, whilst others require quite a bit of surgery. The modeller is also required to provide plastic rod of varying thicknesses. The new equipment includes two gas bottle trolleys, two fire trucks and fou
  6. USS Enterprise CVN-65 Eduard 1:350 The Tamiya 1:350 CVN-65 USS Enterprise was released as far back as 1984. It was the first aircraft carrier in 1:350 I had seen, so had to buy it, only a week after it was released, the first model I used an airbrush, and I still have it, although in a rather poor condition, this was also the year I joined the Royal Navy, and it became the centrepiece for many a Captains rounds, distracting the inspecting party from doing any actual inspecting. For some reason it has been ignored by Eduard, but they have finally released the first of a nu
  7. This is my first model for 42 years. My son bought it for me and I had to relearn how to model. It is poor by comparison with most of the models on here but I am pleased with it as a first effort. It's important because it has got me back into tis excellent hobby (which might become an obsession) after four decades of doing 'sensible' things. Lots of errors on here the main one being I destroyed the NCC- 1701 decal and had to replace it with NCC - 1017 (really bad news for those Trekkies) :-(
  8. Hi Everyone This is one of my earlier builds that I made years ago of the original Star Trek ship and added lights to. The electrics are quite basic but I achieved the effects that I wanted. I found it quite easy to do as there was plenty of space for the wiring, etc, and after looking on the Internet it seemed that strobe lighting had not been invented when they created the model for the series, so I just used basic Led's. There is a video that I made HERE and some pictures of how I added the lighting in the WIP forum. Thanks for viewing.
  9. This is how I added lights to my build of the Enterprise many moons ago. The lighting is quite basic and should be a fairly easy project to do for anyone wanting to get into lighting their kits. As the original series model of the ship was quite basic with its lighting effects, I used some poetic justice while still trying to keep some of the effects from the TV series. Thanks for viewing and I hope it encourages others to have a go. There is a video of the finished kit HERE
  10. I've started the Tamiya 1/350 USS Enterprise in 1/350th scale. Currently working on some of the air-wing and changes to the island structure as it is being backdated to how she was in 1976. Still have to put on the landing gear, gear doors, access steps, engines and pylons. The canopies were tinted and I am plucking up the courage to paint the canopy frame. It's a slow long-term project which I hope to finish by the time the telegram lands on the doorstep.
  11. Hello, guys. Soon I will start to work on Tamiya model of ship from title. I wa wondering if you could help me with some facts. I was wondering from what period is this model ? In the box, are this aircrafts - 2 x F-18 Hornets, 2 x A-6 Intruders, 2 x F-14 Tomcats, 2 x A-7 Corsairs and 2 - S-3 Vikings.
  12. USS Enterprise NCC-1701 Stardate 1601.28: After a year of extensive research, conservation work on the original studio model of the USS Enterprise is now underway in the Museum’s spacedock. Our goal is to stabilize the model and return it to its appearance from August of 1967, during the filming of the episode The Trouble with Tribbles, which marked the last known modification of the ship during the production of Star Trek. The model appeared in all 79 episodes of the original series, and was donated to the Smithsonian in 1974. It will go back on public display in the Boeing Milestones of Fli
  13. Hi Everyone, In memory of Leonard Nimoy, 1931 to 2015. Here is the 3rd of my 4 submissions for this group build, the Revell 1:500 scale USS Enterprise NCC-1701 from Star Trek Into Darkness. Here is the box art : Kit details : - Skill Level 3 - 91 parts - Newly developed construction kit - Large scale, two-piece Saucer Section - Separate command bridge - Multi-part deflector and sensor - Large-scale, two-piece secondary hull - Multi-part nacelles with separate pylons - Many transparent parts, including Bussard collectors and navigation lights - Display stand - Kit suitable for
  14. Hi Everyone, In memory of Leonard Nimoy, 1931 to 2015. Here is the 2nd of my 4 submissions for this group build (3 of which are starships) : the Revell 1/600 USS Enterprise NCC-1701 from Star Trek The Original Series. Here is the boxart : Starship history : Due to remarkable technical advances, above all in transmission technology, the Starfleet decided on a comprehensive modernisation program across the entire fleet in the year 2236. On this new type of ship, the current technical developments were taken into account, and components such as warp nacelles and the primary hull were impleme
  15. Hi Everyone, As I like to have a starship project on the go and my Enterprise E build is almost complete, so I am preparing to start a muiltibuild of federation starships - The Original Series USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and the Star Trek Into Darkness USS Enterprise NCC-1701. I will be using the same Revell 371 - Light Grey paint that I used on the E-E project for both of these starships. I used Enamel paint for the Enterprise E, but will probably use Acrylic paint to speed up the drying time on these two. Anyway onto the sprue photos and kit descriptions. 04882 - 1:500 USS Enterprise NCC-170
  16. USS Enterprise "Star Trek Into Darkness" 1:500 Revell As a Star Trek Fan I think I am right in saying that in recent years the franchise as suffered a little bit. JJ Adams came in like a breath of fresh air to update things with the 2009 Star Trek, and this has now been followed up with Star Trek Into Darkness. Without wanting to give to much away the crew of the Enterprise must return home following an act of terrorism within its own ranks which destroys much of Starfleet leaving Earth in crisis. With a personal score to settle Capt James T Kirk will lead his crew on a mission to cap
  17. My next project is going to be the AMT USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E from Star Trek Nemesis. I got this kit several years ago and assembled the kit without painting. It has been sat on the top of my bookcase gathering dust. As I have completed my Type 45 destroyer and Sea King helicopter, I am going to paint this kit. Luckily, I had not glued the engine nacelles and pylons into place, so I have been able to mask up all of the clear parts in preparation for painting. Photos will follow of this painting project as I go along.
  18. My first ever starship. I am more into painting figures than building the kit but I absolutely love Star Trek and couldn't resist this kit. I lookf forward to your constructive criticism and comments. I painstakingly masked the kit for the aztec design. I think the shade of white used was too white, and the grey was too dark. It has made a strong contrast for the pattern which makes it quite interesting. I considered lighting the Enterprise but decided this was a little too ambitious for such an amature.
  19. Hi This is the first model that I decided to add lighting to. It seemed so easy to do (as though it was built for it) and it didn't take many alterations to add the LED's and route the wiring. No drilling of the windows, etc, and minimal amount of cutting required. Though not detailed to an experts eye, when looking at it on the TV it seems that technology was not a priority with their model in the series, whereas cash flow was. I will try to upload a video as it shows the lights in more detail. More pictures can be found by clicking on this link: http://s29.photobucket.com/user/ukbandit1
  20. Hi guys For those who have seen the pictures of my finished kit of the Enterprise and wondered how I managed to add the lighting, etc, I have shown a couple of the diagrams below which may be of help. For more diagrams, pictures and video just click HERE Kevin
  21. Hey Guys, 'thought I'd cure my 'Modeling Mojo' by re-commencing a major re-build of the Tamya Enterprise. here's how she looked during the strippdown....... ......along with the new airwing I had modeled her in her 1982? refit (most commonly seen) but as a bit of a challange I decided to remodel her in her late 2000's configuration, with all the 'grey mushrooms' and Superbug's. *edit -this photo must be ~2007, due to the presence of S-3 Vikings on deck, and the last refitt of 'mushroom' radars* I have no perticular connection to the "Big E" other than being an ex-(RAN)sailor. And I d
  22. USS Enterprise, Star Trek Into Darkness 1:500 scale Revell In 2009, producer/director JJ Abrams released “Star Trek”, which was planned to be the first in a new series of films, designed to reboot the ailing franchise. The movie became a huge hit, pulling in over $385 million worldwide. Many fans of the franchise were less than pleased with the film, however, feeling that Abrams and the writers, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, had played fast and loose with established events from Trek’s history and had been disrespectful of Gene Rodenberry‘s original vision of the series. Fans o
  23. amt 763 star trek cadet the original series 3 ships scale 1:2500 The 3 ships comprise: USS Enterprise, Romulan bird of prey, Klingon D7 battle cruiser Scale The photos include that unit of measurement of miniatures: a one pound coin. Is there a "bottom" in space? anyway here is the underside view: Comments on the Kit: Cute little models. Comprehensive decals are included. Display stand(s) are NOT included. Problems Poor fit: the tightness of the "snap-fit" parts is very variable. The Enterprise pods were sloppy and very difficult to align, the "V" shaped support was a very poor fi
  24. Hi y'all. First time post by myself of a finished model! Forgive me in advance if the colors arn't to exact. I followed the boxes instructions of light grey but the box art seems quite a bit lighter. I'm not a big fan of Sci-fi or Sci-fi models but my friend's birthday is coming up and he loves Star Trek. It only seemed right to build him his favorite class ship right? I didn't care to much for the kit. The fit wasn't to hot and the decals were way to thick. Micro Sol helped a bit. After looking online the D model (my favorite) might be a bit better fit wise. Anyone know? Anyways here are t
