Enterprise-TOS model-1st Pilot configuration built in 2015. It required a total of 243 hours over a six-month period. About one-half of the time was spent on cleaning parts and sub-assembly work, and one-half on painting and decaling. The total number of parts I used was about 91, which is not many for such a large model. I believe Round2 did an excellent job on this kit. Their product is not perfect but it is very good, and more importantly it is EXTREMELY accurate! Certainly, they invested the required time, effort and expense to get it right, and fulfilled a wish voiced by Star Trek modelers for decades. In my opinion this kit holds up really well even under close inspection. The least fun part of the project was removing the recessed panel/grid lines from the saucer section. The most exciting part was adding the decals, since they transformed the model from something plain into the fantasy starship I grew up with. Nothing on this project was scratch built or required any special tools, I just had to stay committed to very tedious re-sanding/re-painting/re-decaling until the parts were as good as I could make them. The last few photos are of the actual 11ft. prop that does confirm the semi-gloss blue neck. Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy the photos.
