1/1400 AMT/ERTL U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E

Hey again,

Now, I think It's time to introduce my flagship, the Enterprise, ne new one :D :D .

It's a well known 1701-E, the big one. It comes from a 1999/2000 AMT ST: Insurrection box. And You can see the escape pod decals a so glow yellow here, even not really correct. The painting instruction from AMT was still for the First Contact kit, so I did it so in 2000 together with my 1701 C and D in 14000 scale too. My base is from FC, but on the Ship I added some Nemesis weapon modifications later even after Nemesis. At this time 2003 I hat no Idea abot the special upgrade kit from Starcrafts. Is it mayba possible to buy only the double torpedo banch, which is behind the bridge?

Painting was wit Revell and Humbrol colors all with brush. All aditional Transorter pad decals are from 2500 scale Ent D kit from AMT and all another hull modifications are from garage decal manifactures like Saturn models (?), I don't know this anymore...but as You can see not the best quality...

I know, it's not the best paint job, but I really like my Enterprise-E, it's a part of my modeller progress and at the buildig time I was 16-17, so I think it's not bad for my young me :lol: :lol: :lol: .

And now some pictures of the beauty.

This was certainly a better paint job than what I managed on my E when I was 18/19. In hindsight my first "serious" attempt at building a model (not counting the 1/2500 TOS, REFIT, and D that I built as a kid mostly so I could play with them and never painted) should probably not have been my all time favorite ship, cuz I screwed up in a number of ways that taught me a few things. For one, never try to spray paint something and THEN glue it.

Years later tore the whole thing apart, scrubbed it clean, and rebuilt it with Acreation wallpaper decals. This was in the brief period between R2's first issue of it and their re-issue so I couldn't really afford to just buy a new one. Nowadays they're a bit easier and cheaper to find. You can build a new one and show all that you have learned since this one and display them side by side, otherwise nothing wrong with being proud of where you started.

Man I ramble like Grandpa Simpson on these things sometimes. Long story short: nice work! Plenty to be proud of.

Looks really neat! I can't tell the difference between the Ent-E versions... I just can tell that yours is simply fantastic. Painted with a brush? At first glance I never would be able to spot this!
