^ Well, I'm very glad to hear that people involved with this project have the following in mind:
- The previous restoration, while professionally done, was a rather unwanted deviation from the original look of the NCC-1701 Enterprise and MUST be corrected.
- More than one person among the committee recognizes this above issue and so this point will not be lost in the shuffle of priorities over time.
- It's simply not feasible to "hang" the Enterprise freely for long periods as has been done, which contributed significantly to a rapid decay of the model. So some kind of support structure made of plexiglass will be conceived and implemented to allow the model to be displayed for far longer periods of time before restoration is needed again.
Thanks very much for taking the time to clue us in about this, John.
