A week or so ago I got the second issue of the new Star Trek Starships partwork featuring the USS Enterprise Refit from the first three Star Trek movies. Below you can see some photos I took of the model.
As you may notice in the first few photos the model was broken. I have contacted the partwork people and they have promised a replacement. In the meantime the model is displayable on the stand.
The saucer section seems to be made of metal while the rest of the ship is made of a very light plastic. The light plastic does allow an “engines lighting up” effect.
The model does seem to be bluer than I would have thought it should be and the detail is a bit minimal. Combined with the fact that the model was broken it’s all a bit disapointing.
