The Grey Lady-TOS Enterprise-1/350 Scale

This is my build of the 1/350 scale TOS USS Enterprise-production version. The model is over 31 inches long and was build using the Round 2 lighting kit with motorized nacelles and the ParaGrafix PE set for the bridge and shuttle bay. Ship's registry and pennants were painted on using Orbital Drydock's vinyl masks. The ship was weathered using Tamiya pastel chalks to replicate the on-screen look of the studio model...

Some of those images are almost fool proof. Makes me think there was a second TOS-style show in the late 70s or something. Well done work.

I am in awe. Your weathering is especially lovely--not too strong, not too light, just right! Beautiful job. Just beautiful.

Amazing. That side shot makes me long for what TOS-R could have been.

Beautiful job there. I like the stand you built. What did you use for that?

That would appear to be the Spacedock stand from the Polar Lights 1/350 refit model.

Re: The Grey Lady-TOS Enterprise-1/350 Scale

Truly an amazing model. I've always wished to have both the time and the talent to build one myself. I tried making one of the smaller and much simpler kits but, I really suck at it.

One of these days I hope to contract someone to create such a model for me.
