Now that is truly one of the best refit builds I've seen. :D

The paint work is full of subtlety, and the lights are just right.

:thumbsup

(too bad it's the "-A" version, I much prefer the original... but who's to quibble. :lol )

As nwjedidave said you can get them on ebay, but the best place I have found to order them is from the Starship Modeler store. I ordered another last Saturday and it was on my doorstep MONDAY. Plus they have a great price.

lol yea...

i was given some other options that i had "installed" those were:

a sound board that activates when the photon torpedoes are activated, and Illuminated randomly firing phasers in the main hull. They are illuminated with a combination of LEDs and Fiber Optics

Jesus Tap-dancing-Christ. :eek

That is, hands down, a work of art.

The nicest I've ever seen. Well done. Inspiring.

I am giddy with glee at the sight of it. :lol

Beautiful. The lit phasers is a great little addition. I see you opted for all the tiny LED's around the docking ports and gangaway, too. Very nice, those F/X guy's do incredible work. I spoke with them once about a year ago right as they started to tool up to doing these builds on commission. They had a few copies on e-bay but this is one is one of the best I've seen. Post more pics when you get her.

I'm flabbergasted. That is an amazing representation of the most beautiful spacecraft to ever grace the silver screen. If mine turns out even half as nice I'll be happy.

thanks everyone ..

i'll snap some different angle pictures when it arrives and i have it set up...

and I *CAN* tell you the maker was the FX Company www.thefxcompany.com and they take commissions all the time.. prices start at $1K for an NX enterprise and go up from there... John is the owner and is a great communicator, and as you can tell, does some fantastic work ..
