Nope no light kit, building my own as I go.Â With Polar Lights gone the way of the dodo I doubt we will ever see a production 1/350 TOS Enterprise

Polar was bought by "Ertl/Racing Champions" last year I think it was. So now ironically these fantastic PL kits are now in the hands of... god help me... ERTL.Â
All Trek model production was axed immediately, except for the small "Legends of Star Trek" die-cast toy ships... which are actually plastic ships on metal stands. Now available, ripoff-priced gathering dust at comic book shops everywhere. :unsure
Technically there were two last Trek models that escaped after PL was bought... the Scorpion shuttle from "Nemesis" (the hell?) and the 1/1000 NX-01.
The death of Polar Lights is doubly tragic, because their NEXT kit was going to be a 1:350 K'Tinga Klingon ship from TMP.Â :cry
1:350 TOS Enterprise would eventually have followed, I'm sure. But oh well.

You mention not spraying the interior Alclad Chrome because it would be too expensive... why not use Plastikote Bumper Chrome or similar? Just curious.

(or is that just an undercoat for the light to bounce off of...)
