And... the Enterprise?
Here's a link that tells the story. Several Enterprises were part of an earlier series.

I would prefer to have this one but it's been many years since I made any models and I no longer possess the skill to go for it.
I wouldn't mind that Excelsior or Kelvin too though.

Me wanty! The last model I ever built was the TMP Enterprise back in 1980. I've been tempted to go at one, again, but my skills are probably gone, too.

That's gorgeous.

What can I say, I like blue nacelles.
The first Hot Wheels alternate universe Enterprise had red nacelles. The color correction was made before they went into production, so none got into the public, and the release was delayed four months. The story is in the link I give at the top of this post. There's a picture of the red-nacelled alternate universe Enterprise Hot Wheel.

The refit Enterprise I have is six inches long and the saucer is just under three inches in diameter. It is actually very well made and looks like a replica more than a toy.
