The Ship. The USS Enterprise-B - featured in the movie Star Trek: Generations - was technically the third ship to carry the name Enterprise, and was an upgraded version of the Excelsior class. As well as having a different colour scheme to the standard Excelsiors, Enterprise-B also featured additional engines and a flared engineering hull as well as capped nacelles, all of which gave it a slightly beefier and more aggressive appearance. The studio model was an alteration of the existing USS Excelsior model, with the flared hull intended to accommodate a hull breach without damaging the existing model (as it turns out the glue did that anyway and the alterations ended up becoming permanent). The model. The model is by AMT and is in 1/1000 scale. For hull markings I purchased a set of aztek decals by Acreation for use in conjunction with the supplied decals, which give the finished model a more realistic and detailed appearance. They are also somewhat tricky to work with and tear very easily - I made many errors, but most of the imperfections are concealed by a coat of Humbrol matt acrylic varnish. The decals also negate the need for most of the painting, although I had already painted most of the model before I decided to opt for the additional decals. An unsettlingly small display stand is included in the shape of a Starfleet logo with the name of the film in moulded detail. I shall be keeping this one away from sources of wind. By way of size comparison, here's the Enterprise-B alongside her older sister (Polar Lights 1/1000 USS Enterprise NCC 1701 refit): And that's my last build for 2015! Thanks for looking in, and as always any comments/questions are most welcome. Regards, Ross.
