Tomorrow the ends will be attached, then the nacelles, and then, the bussards to finish. By Sunday we should be done. Whew!

And she's done! NCC-1701. No bloody "A", no bloody "B".... Though it is from the Bearded Spock Universe.
I'll take a video soon to show off the lighting.
Thanks for tuning in.

As the NCC-1701-D, and the ISS ENTERPRISE are both from alternate universes, it seems fitting to show them side by side.
Picture one is the two models next to each other.
Picture two is the two models in scale. Yikes!

the "D" is 1/2500 scale, so for this pic the 1701 original is reduced by x2.5
