Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

For a lot of years the ship had no grid lines and I was cool with that. Then I was convinced they existed and grudgingly accepted it. For the recent 1/350 model kit I think R2's intention was well meaning but they unfortunately fell short in execution although the end result is far from being disastrous. I may try to hide the lines completely and if successful I sure as hell won't bother trying to pencil them back on. I just feel the ship looks more futuristic high tech without them. For me they detract from the far future look Matt Jefferies was aiming for.

Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

Going through a pile of old photos, I found these three images of the 11-foot Enterprise filming model. These photos were taken in February 1981. They're not as nice as some of the others in this thread; I cannot remember what kind of camera I had back then!

Hey, these look like mine (taken in Summer 1981)

They may not be as nice as the others but they do have historic value and clearly show
  • before the '82 renovation the top and lower dome and the bow windows were still illuminated
  • the original grey structure at the nacelle's underside (between the red rectangle and the forward cap) is still intact (= original!)
  • the foremost circular porthole below the pennant is still there (it "disappeared" after the 1982 renovation)
Great find!

That to me was the best that model ever looked, save for filming.

Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

I took these in August of 1977. The model was so high up at the time that there was no way to see the top of the saucer.


It was just a cheap Instamatic camera, but for what it's worth the high-res scan is here:

You have to hit the little magnifying glass in the lower right corner and hit it again to see the image full sized.

To be honest, the wording of some of your posts can occasionally be a little hard to follow, hence my confusion.

Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

The 32" model was on sale at Squadron last week for only $80.

I'm building one right now, in fact.

Are you referring to R2's 1/350 TOS Enterprise kit?
