Seriously, I have built all the 1701's through the E, but left them when I moved. I scored the AMT "D" on Ebay a while back and it's waiting patiently.

I went to the Star Trek convention at the Rio last year and went crazy in the vendor area. It was amazing what they want for those vintage kits. They had some kits that were only available for a few months and some that didn't even make it to the U.S.!

Oh and babes in TOS uniforms, miniskirts, high boots, and plunging necklines. Come on 23rd Century!

I want the 1/350th "A" bad, real bad, but at over $100 now it will be hard for me to justify. That, and I want two, one to build OOB and one to convert to a Belknap Class strike cruiser.

I will get a couple of Polar Lights smaller 1701A's though. I want to scratch a Akyazi Class perimeter action ship.

Trekkie?

Yes please!

I have not built Enterprise A. If you want to see NCC-1701, no bloody a, b, c, or d, I can do that! :lol: ;) :D

I'm working on a 1701 A, absolutely no idea when it/if I will ever finish it. Or I might build it as the Yorktown, since according to the (non-official) history described on the AMT/Ertl instruction sheet, that's what the A originally was.

I recall reading that the wrecked USS Constellation from "The Doomsday Machine" (one of my favs) was constructed from the AMT kit for time and cost saving. In the remastered edition it's now cgi and looks much better, but I think that looses some of the charm of show. Much like cgi Yoda compared to the muppet & Frank Oz in The Empire Strikes Back.
And yes I'm that geeky.....

Love the models!

Thanks eric. Yes, the AMT kit was used in the show, footage of that ship was also used in the episode, "The Ultimate Computer" to represent a wrecked ship. I have not seen the remastered "The Doomsday Machine", but have seen other remasterd episodes, tho I have seen stills from that remastered episode. I am not a fan of it.

It's the AMT kit with the shuttlecraft. The box art refers to Star Trek V, which IIRC was the first movie where the A was used (except for the last few seconds of IV). Yes, I know, some Trekkie I am, and I'm too lazy to Google it. :lol:

Yes. NCC-1701A was in the last few minutes of Star Trek IV, and then in V.

BTW, my least favorite Enterprise is NJJ-1701, from the last movie. A characture if you ask me. Hated the sets too, and hated the supposed romance between Spock and Uhura. Never should have been there. But I digress, lest we get into a argument. :P ;) B)
