    I'm wanting to add this ship to my own lineup of models, but am unsure which one to pic up.

    Is there any clue, assuming I'm firmly in the 300+ meter ship size camp, as to what the toy's and other display options out there scales are? I'd like to get as close to ANY of the scales avaiable (1/1000, 1/2500, etc).

    My searches turned up zilch, so any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    IIRC correctly the playmates version of the ship is in the 1/2500 scale

    of course the entire thing with the enterprise being 1/2 a mile (1.5KM) long is a topic of a different discussion :unsure

    Ex Astris Scientia - The New Enterprise Design

    As usual, this is an excellent read.

    I love that Hot Wheels lists their's on Amazon as 1:50 scale.

    I may have to give the Playmates version a try. Maybe a quick repaint would give it a nice 'pop'.

    check out the one that came with DVD release - a TARGET exclusive, I believe. It's about 1/1000 scale, and not bad little version of the ship.

    ^ The dvd one is nice and could be worked to be a nice display piece, its available on amazon. Its also good for kitbashing.

    What happened to the main hull on the dvd model?

    Wow, did it come like that!
    She looks like the NX-01 version 2.

    The one i got from target with the DVDs was a complete enterprise.

    Never seen this one before though.

    Can someone please tell me what options there are for an Abrams Enterprise? I know there is a 1/1000 kit by Revell but is that it? Is there something else other than that?

    The Foxhound above is a 'kitbash' model I built with the target exclusive enterprise DVD holder. I chopped away the secondary hull. It's close to 1/1000

    Options are the revell enterprise which is 1/500 scale
    The target DVD case which is close to 1/1000
    And federation models sells a resin model that is 1/2500

    And the play toys version is a whacky scale

    Thanx!

    The big problem with the Playmates toy is proportionally it is a bit squished from front to back. The JJ prise is a little more stretched out than that.
