After 2 years of silently following threads of this forum I now registered to show you my next project:
The new Revell Enterprise from the 2009 movie. It arrived 2 hours ago and I couldn't wait to examine the sprues.
Here are some pictures (new line for each sprue):
(The ruler measures cm)
My first impressions are:
> quite big for my standards (l=588 mm)
+ overall very nice surface detail
+ many windows and other parts in clear plastic
+ well cast except for a few tiny sink marks
+ extensive decal sheet
- some windows, impulse engines and some other details not in clear plastic
I'm really not a Star Trek expert nor have I built many Sci-Fi models before. But I want the model to be as accurate to the 2009 movie as possible, and I really need your help. Both in catching inaccuracies as well as in helping with method tips, especially for lighting it up properly. I watched a lot of Steve Neills fantastic videos and already bought clear dental acrylic which I will use here for my first time.
So in the beginning, I'm looking for references of the "original", to see where I have to modify the kit with drilling out windows and making corrections. I already found some nice screenshots and have the DVD, but if someone can help me further, it would be appreciated a lot!
