AMT/ERTL USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C 1:1400 - Restoration

Postby IndianaCook » Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:41 pm

Hi all,
I've been away from this forum and modelling in general for far too long. Its been hectic at work and I've been planning a wedding and... ohh... you don't want to hear me waffle on. Needless to say, after repairing my NX-01 a week or so back, I've realised that I need Starship modelling in my life now more than ever at the moment :)

Anywhoo, as a reminder, here is my old mothballed fleet before I started: https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=3831&p=46583#p46583

So, after part 1 of the restoration project, Klingon Bird of Prey: https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=3842 and its better than expected sequel 1:1400 Enterprise D: https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=3826 came part 3, 1:350 NX-01: https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=3919 I now present, what hopefully is the start of an epic franchise, part 4, the Ambassador Class USS Enterprise NCC-1701-C.

As a side note, it seems that the Photobucket plague to wipe out all our forum pictures has reached me too. I plan to migrate all of the pictures I have uploaded there to Flickr and relink them in the various threads I have created.

So here is my 1:1400 Enterprise C with the battle damage decal sheet generously donated by MEATLOAFr

Again, there isn't really much wrong with her

She just needs some TLC and a new stand!

Ok, the plan is pretty much the same as my Enterprise D, remove that stand and repair any damage thats caused. Remove the existing paint and decals and give her a new paint job, give her some crackin' new decals and mount her on a new stand. jobs a good 'un!
I ordered some new Ambassador Class - Enterprise Detailing Decals from Federation Models. They were dispatched today so hopefully I won't have to wait too long for them. The decal sheet provided by MEATLOAFr is excellent, but I think i'm only going to use the battle damage decals from it.

I am also going to order this stand:

The one I ordered for my Enterprise D is amazing and really finishes it off. Incidentally I've just noticed that there is also a stand on the for my USS Voyager, and she is missing a stand too :)

Anyway guys, as always thanks for looking. Any help and advice is appreciated.
Live Long, and Prosper :vulcan:

Do those also do the rings/panels on the top of the saucer or would you have to try to color match the decals and paint it?

No they don't come with the rings unfortunately. Gonna have to do my best to match the colour, which should be fun!

Unless, if there is anybody here who has completed an Ent C/Ambassador Class kit could recommend the colours to use?
