I think this one needs it's own thread.
It was at Wonderfest Kentucky.
Polar Lights BIIG TOS Enterprise model - YouTube
Cool. It will be built.
Not sure about the open shuttle bay though, I think for the TOS big E I'll build mine closed.
Cool video. And here are a few still pics for you.
Looks great, I really like the shuttle bay. Almost makes me sad I sprang for the MR version. Then I look at my closet full of unbuilt models!
I wonder if there is room for a micro servo in there... A working shuttle door would be cool
That would be cool. The best of both worlds, to coin a phrase.
That shuttle bay looks amazing. Can't wait to build this model.
awesome, I didnt even notice the shuttlebay til now, did you also see the DS9 with clear cast mini Defiant
Thanks for posting the video! I like the shuttle bay. Not sure I'll show the bridge thru the clear dome or not.
This is the one I`ve been waiting for.Can`t wait to get my hands on one.
Did they say when and how much $ ?
Still in the process of finalizing the mold details so no release date yet (see the TOS 1/350 scale thread)
Cost depends on what you want.
There is a pre-order DX version then the standard store version.
Light kit is separate but it will be plug and play ready.
Model by itself will be over $100.
Looks great! The one thing I noticed was the fan domes weren't spining.
As for the recessed grid details, I hear they'll either refine them as much as possible, or remove them all together. Either is fine by me.
The bridge inside was not facing the proper direction either.
Nice to see this is in the the works though.
Now we need the Reliant in 350th!
Excellent paint work, eimb1999. I'll be picking your brain when I get my sprues!
Enjoy! It'll be fun watching the info from Wonderfest flood in, as I'm sure that there are better pix taken than the ones shown so far.
Perfect example of real world vs whats required for filming. No engineer would ever design a ship like the reality of what real world filming required.
In my case, I will have mine offset to the 32 degree angle to match the turbo lift even if it is stupid from a engineering standpoint.
Options are good things as long as they are clearly stated in the instructions.
Well, according to the Round 2 talk, they are shooting for a September release for the 1701 club version and an October release for the general version. Hopefully those dates stay firm.
The way I see it, once they get those grids slightly reduced, it should be fine. Personally I wouldn't mind it being released with the grids as they are since two coats of primer and/or Mister Surfacer and they should reduce just fine. Everything else I saw on that model looked great and I only wish my force powers were stronger to get me a test shot.
That model looks great. love the shuttle bay but don't like the nacelle lighting at all.
