Re: Forced perspective, painted backdrops and the refit Enterprise

^^ Good catch, thanks. I also just noted that the desk model variation of the refit Enterprise in the foreground looks like a cousin of the Constellation Class (e.g. Stargazer, Hathaway).

Did anyone ever do schematics of this variation?

Actually, I believe that was a standard AMT/ERTL Connie refit with flipped warp engines and they forgot to put the window pieces in for some odd reason. I've built more of those kits than I can remember - I'm pretty sure it's nothing more than that.

It's always irritated me how those model builders screw up something so obvious - they work on Star Trek for heaven's sake and they can't get the flippin' Enterprise right!
