Nx-01 refit

Postby Hossfly72 » Fri Jan 24, 2014 3:44 am

I've found several 1/2500 NX ships, but which one is considered "the best"?
And I have yet to find either the refit version or a conversion kit in 1/2500. Could somebody please point me in the right direction if such a beat exists?

Thanks Burke. I figured it was a dream, but I had hope. If you get a chance, could you post a pic of the Ftoy one? I've never seen or heard of Ftoys.

Last year a friend gave me the VA Miniatures version. I don't recall the details well enough to tell if this is the version MEATLOAFr presented. The VA version is OK from a build standpoint, but it is inaccurate and a creature of its time. The master must have been sculpted at the time of early press releases for the NX. The ventral side of the saucer is not as flat as the "real" ship and the dorsal details are too simplified. I think the nacelles are undersized. Since you're asking for the "best" version, you'll want to stay away from VA's. If you can, then wait for Adam's when it comes out. If you can't wait, then get the FToys.

I don't like the NX and I hate ENT*, so instead of trying to make it accurate I might modify it to turn it into a different type of ship.

* Maybe it's vice versa :lol:

It took a while for ENT to grow on me. Still HATE the theme song though! Might have something to do with the fact that when it came out I was dating a girl who was a Trek fan, loved the 3 Stooges, cooked like Paula Dean and , well, nevermind.... But she was pretty cool. Sadly, she turned out to be a little psycho.
I just recently rewatched all four seasons on Amazon Prime though, and there were some pretty good stories mixed in with the Xindi/time travel arc. Not quite as campy and "hippyesque" as TOS, although I still love that too.

Yeah that's the VA one, can never remember that.. I bought it almost 10 years ago when it first came out, as upi can see a little paint is a far as I got with it (just was not happy with the detail of it)

I bought the fToys ones (NX and Mirror versions) a little over a year ago, much happier with them
