Re: Love, hate and the AMT Enterprise model

I built my first Enterprise model kit when I was 13. It was the original 1967 release with the godawful stirrup-and-retainer attachment for the nacelle struts. There was no way in hell to build that thing according to the instructions and not have the nacelles droop. I ended up tying a piece of thread between the engines to get them to line up more or less straight.

The mid-1970s re-tooling solved that problem -- but introduced even more inaccuracies than the original had!
