That is a very nice Enterprise.  :clap: I have been wondering what the Revell version looked like so thanks for sharing this with us Mary.

Very nice build Mary, much better than the AMT kit a built a few years ago. Did you find it an easy build?

Good to see one of these finally built - very well by the way.

I have one in the stash and I must say the plastic looks good and I expect the fit to be excellent. This is far superior to any AMT Enterprise kit.

Undoubtedly true, but this new Revell kit unfortunately has quite a number of shape issues, particularly in the saucer section, that would take quite a lot of work to correct -- a shame, really, since there's no shortage of good-quality reference material to work from these days (unlike the AMT kit when it was designed in the '60s ...).  The Polar Lights (now Round2) Enterprise is much better in this respect, and has been around for about 10 years.  Revell did half of a great job, and then fell asleep before they got to the finishing line (they didn't even notice that they flipped the iconic "Federation" arrow-head -- used for the base!).

(The new Revell Klingon cruiser, on the other hand, appears to be much better representation.)

Nevertheless, Mary has done a cracking job -- lovely paint work.

I concur with everyone else.  That is one cracking build, Mary.  Very well done indeed! :notworthy:

Beautiful build Mary, of my favorite Sci-Fi spaceship.

A very nice build. How big is it, hard to tell from the picture?
