Original TOS Star Trek USS Enterprise Model

 

If you have a model of Star Trek's orginal USS Enterprise, you might find these images online interesting.

Round2 through AMT and Polar Lights have made several kits of the Enterprise over the years. AMT has since the late 1960s. Chances are you have at least one in your model stash. From the smaller 1/2500 scale to the huge kit released in 2014, the 1/350 Polar Lights Enterprise.

The model itself, which was donated to the Smithsonian Museum, has been restored several times since it first arrived there. It's been on display most of the time in between restorations. The restoring process has made changes to the model, some that are popular, some not. Essentually this is a large scale model made by a TV studio, and it was never meant to last very long, or look that great over time.

It's really just a bunch of wood glued together and a few bolts holding it all attached. In the end, the idea is to keep as much of the original model as possible. But only time will tell how much of that is possible. I don't know if I would use it as a reference since it's been painted over the original paint a long time ago. Production stills from the studio are probably your best bet there.

Nonetheless, you might enjoy some images of the model, and you can CLICK HERE for those.

Also check out the Smithsonian's website for even more images and information.

The ship should be back on display soon if you're going to visit the musem.
