    This is the playmates version of the Enterprise from the 2009 movie. The only way your getting the model is to buy this since they nix the model version. When I 1st got this i wanted to redue it and make it look more like a professional model rather than a toy. The plan was to keep it so it would lite but that already has ended so i get to fill the holes and do it right I have already started it a week ago here's what i done so far.

    How it comes:

    Looks like you have a good start there. I'm not a big fan of this ship I have it too since I want them all.

    I'm doing the same thing to my playmates Romulan BoP since the kit version is so very bad.

    Keep up the good work, looking forward to see the finished product.

    Good start, but I was just curious - are you going for a customized, 'idealized' 09 Ent, or just cleaning up what playmates couldn't be bothered to do?

    For all the cool things playmates gave my childhood in terms of Trek, they sure did **** me off a lot. Even now. Holding my 09 communicator toy up next my DST TOS comm *toy* still makes me go, "Seriously, guys? That's it?" I know. Toy. But still. Sorry, had to digress...

    Well i got all the putty fill done and sanded now to throw some paint back on it. The ship comes in this god awful color of a tanish white. I'm painting it white!

    Just cleaning it up and trying not to make it look like such a toy. Rather just do a build model of it but it appears that that aint going to happen any time soon so i have to deal with this.

    Well the paint part is done. Next is to paint on a Aztec pattern,I have a template that i re-sized that will work. Any pointers on this would be appreciated seeing that i have never tried this before. The plan is to print it on sticker paper put it on the model and cut out the black than use a gloss white to paint whats left.

    Re: 2009 Star Trek Enterprise

    OK the next step is to try to do a Aztec pattern on the Enterprise. I got a pattern off the net and was able to resize it to what i need got lucky there. Went out bought some sticker paper for my printer and printed the pattern on it. Now if my idea works i stick it on the ship and spend a lot of time cutting it out, than painting whats left with a flat white and if every thing works good when i pull it off i should be left with what i looking for.

    Looking good so far. I just hope that sticker paper comes off easily.

    Re: 2009 Star Trek Enterprise

    I have the ship repainted now and have started the detail paint. I also believe that i found some decals that will work to. The plan now is to do the paint clear it with a gloss coat than decal it and finish it with a coat of flat clear. I also had a real nice guy make me a set of decals to. Again thank you for that.

    Aztec decaling has begun... keep in mind there is no kit for this model I am using a 1/1000 refit kit decal sheet so some of this i have to make up as i go to get it to look some what like it should.

    These are the finished shots of my 2009 Enterprise from the movie. It started life as a toy by Playmates. Been waiting for someone to make this a model but it don't look like that's going to happen,so i used it to make my own. Here's how it came out.

    Someone commented that the contrast look a little to much and that it was to bad that i put the decals on i could have shot a little white on it and toned it down a little. Never thought about that, so i taped a few things off and gave it a little mist of white and a shot of flat clear and I like it, good idea thanks for the tip.

    Misted in white, contrast dulled :

    Redid the nacelles to cut the contrast a little more.

    I'm wondering that too!

    Great job, it really needed that last misting - made it much more believable.

    You did a great job with the redo but that design is just godawful. JJ really screwed up the Enterprise
