As a boy in the '70s, I enjoyed both building two of the AMT 1701 kits and playing with them with friends.
I did the same thing. The apartment townhouse where my father and I lived had a two foot wide globe lamp suspended over our dining table and was controlled by a dimmer switch. I'd dial it to a faint glow and "orbit" my assembled Enterprise around it, pretending the lamp was a planet. Turn the lamp brighter and it became a star. Have my buddy Kyle oscillate the dial to make the lamp "pulse" and it became the flagship Fesarius of the First Federation.

Shoot, has it really been 40 years?!

Sincerely,

Bill
It was fun being a kid in the '70s.
