New Member with a question about Models...
 
Hi !

New to the boards and I came here looking for advice.

I'm interesting in getting some Enterprise Models for the house but there are so many companies producing model Enterprises that I don't know where to begin.

I don't have any real specifics I'm looking for other than that the models not be garbage.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Are you looking for one you have to build, or something that's already done and ready for display? Are you looking for a specific Enterprise (original series, motion picture era, next gen, etc)?

I can build or not, it's not important to me. I guess which ever is cheaper or gives me more options.

As for Which Enterprises, I'd say anything from the 1979 Motion Picture through Enterprise D. Not a huge fan of E, it just isn't "my" Enterprise but at the same time, I wouldn't turn it away. I also like the 2009 film version of the 1701.

You can probably find the Enterprise 1701 through 1701-E all in 1:2500 scale fairly inexpensively.

AMT put out two 3-piece sets of the 1701, 1701-A, and 1701-D and also a 1701-B, 1701-C and 1701-E all in the same scale several years ago, you should still able to find them online, or special order them through a hobby shop in your area.

AMT was good for building
The Frankling Mint did make some per-built models

The best ship to me is Enterprise-E:) and the original Enterprise:) follow by Enterprise-D.:techman:

A nice snarky response, but the OP was actually looking for OPINIONS on what these are, which is the best etc, not just a pointless push toward ebay.

Oops...honestly didn't intend this to be snarky! I know sometimes I forget the obvious and assume other people do too.
