Reworking AMT-Ertl's Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise Kit


The Starship Enterprise

   This is a highly modified build-up of AMT-Ertl's classic Enterprise kit. Nearly every part was re-worked or replaced with scratch-built parts. Lights are a combination of model railroad bulbs, LEDs and fiber optics. The model is powered by 6 volts, supplied either by an external source or by four C-batteries held in the base.

Windows and many markings are home-made decals while
some markings are from Decalex's aftermarket decal sheet.

Enterprise, bottom

This model was originally completed in 1991, then stripped
and re-painted in 1993 due to a paint compatibility issue.
