Enterprise NX-01 Refit (by Cubey Terra) VOTE!

Postby Cubey Terra » Tue Feb 18, 2014 6:50 pm

For my contest entry, I'm building possibly the least popular Enterprise. Personally, I liked Star Trek: Enterprise quite a bit, despite the awkward revisions to ST canon.

Would be neat to see her in TOS colors. She's actually my favorite ST design. I'm looking forward to seeing how you proceed, no matter what direction you go :D

I"m excited to watch this one. Let me know what you think about it as it's a bit smaller than your other builds.

The Enterprise in this kit is the refit — how the starship might have been upgraded had they produced a fifth season. By adding a secondary hull, Enterprise gets a more powerful warp core and deflector dish. I'm tempted to paint it like the TOS Enterprise, but I haven't decided yet.

I'll probably start work in March, since I'm busy with a K'Tinga right now. :)


I have this kit, and I had the exact same thought, to put her in TOS colors!! I think you need to get out of my head!! lol. Looking foreward to seeing what you do with her.

The parts are so small compared to my others!

I hope my hands are steady enough. With my K'Tinga set aside, I'll start mashing things together within a couple of days.

I have a few of the original release in the basement. Cant wait to get a couple of these. Would be cool if they released it in 1/350!

I am looking forward to see how this turns out. And if I ever get to one of these I like the idea of TOS colors. Not a fan of the show but the original nx is a not to bad looking ship. And with the refit I have become a fan. Liked this past month looking at the ships of the line calender.

I can't wait to see it either. I love what you have done with your other kits. I drool over your 1/537 refit.

First steps! I've assembled most of the secondary hull, leaving out a couple of tiny bits that I'll add near the end so that painting is easier. The edge bits and a bunch of fiddly tiny bits are added to the saucer. Who am I kidding? They're all fiddly tiny bits! This scale is hard.

I've also started painting the deflector back (the blue part) and the impulse exhausts before I install them.
