New Member with a question about Models...

Hi !

New to the boards and I came here looking for advice.

I'm interesting in getting some Enterprise Models for the house but there are so many companies producing model Enterprises that I don't know where to begin.

I don't have any real specifics I'm looking for other than that the models not be garbage.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Re: New Member with a question about Models...

Are you looking for one you have to build, or something that's already done and ready for display? Are you looking for a specific Enterprise (original series, motion picture era, next gen, etc)?

Re: New Member with a question about Models...

I can build or not, it's not important to me. I guess which ever is cheaper or gives me more options.

As for Which Enterprises, I'd say anything from the 1979 Motion Picture through Enterprise D. Not a huge fan of E, it just isn't "my" Enterprise but at the same time, I wouldn't turn it away. I also like the 2009 film version of the 1701.

You can probably find the Enterprise 1701 through 1701-E all in 1:2500 scale fairly inexpensively.

AMT put out two 3-piece sets of the 1701, 1701-A, and 1701-D and also a 1701-B, 1701-C and 1701-E all in the same scale several years ago, you should still able to find them online, or special order them through a hobby shop in your area.

AMT was good for building
The Frankling Mint did make some per-built models

The best ship to me is Enterprise-E and the original Enterprise follow by Enterprise-D.

A nice snarky response, but the OP was actually looking for OPINIONS on what these are, which is the best etc, not just a pointless push toward ebay.

Oops...honestly didn't intend this to be snarky! I know sometimes I forget the obvious and assume other people do too.
