All but one.......

That dorsal decal on the saucer just looks too much like a CD label to me.
I don't know... those lines....
Maybe it's me... :thinking:
May be, because I like things on a Fed ship to be symmetric, not asymmetric. :lol:

Anyhow, the rest of the ships looks, look good. :)

Thanks! Some folks will love it, others won't. Alternate Paradigms and myself were trying to make it look as much like the original as possible. I'd be interested to see others do a more traditional paint and decal job on them. Might be interesting.

Thanks for the early Christmas. :D

Thanks for the order Jorge! ;) Might be a couple of days to ship because I need to get the decal and instruction sheets organized and printed.

I think Scotchyn said the same thing.
But for a NCX registry I think that adds to the experimental part of its backstory.

My copies came last week! Woot! These look great! Nice crisp, defect-free casting, what you'd expect from an MVM product :dancingbanana:

I've been MIA for a bit. Sorry about that. I wanted to thank those who have purchased the kits. I hope you're happy with them and please share pictures of your builds!

I'd personally like to see someone build these in classic TOS style- with classic saucer grid decals and as all that jazz.
Maybe add black and yellow checkerboard on the tail ends of the nacelles to denote their experimental nature....
