Port side view.

A starboard profile view.

Yeah- I finally found my camera's instructions manual on the net. I rediscovered what 'Macro" means.

Macro 6 (800x450).jpg


And one more.
Adding pics I had to downsize them to less than 3000x3000 pixels.

I really like this and will be using it for my STAW games. I also found this one at my local store.

Thanks for the review, Moon! I know this isn't your preferred scale. Glad you were willing to put on the optivisor for this :)

It seems to have sparked something in me.

I'm now doing up a set of Cadet Series Enterprises along with a Federation Models NX Enterprise and a Cozmo Industries Ringship Enterprise- all in Sacred Scale, which I intend to put all together on one stand.

Well I have to admit there are no few kits available in 2500 that I'd have preferred being in a larger or much larger scale.
Half a loaf...

As long as folks enjoy the hobby that's all that matters. Certainly there will be people sitting on the fence about what scale to choose or modelling in general. That's one reason why I think the pre-deco is good to have. The range can act as a stepping-stone or just something to satisfy the instant gratification many fans have.

I picked up the Reliant yesterday. The fit is outstanding actually. I used some Proweld liquid glue and clamps on the saucer and some testors liquid glue on the nacelles. The seams disappeared perfectly and I have instant satisfaction and a great little display piece... Also shows better how to paint details on the one I was working on. Maybe I'll order decals for another registry and add an extra ship to the tiny fleet. I'll be on the lookout for more of these. They'd be great to get kids involved in the hobby also.

My shop also had the 1/1000 Enterprise and D-7 in stock. They looked great also. I imagine seams would be more visible on the larger and darker colored plastic though.
i don't know. I'm making it up as I go.
