Thanks, I've never seen that shot! I don't think it's new though; "Trials and Tribble-ations" dates to 1996.

No, I don't think any of those guys were related.

I dunno- they all could have had the same nerdy father who donated repeatedly to a sperm bank.

I wonder what it is about the nacelle caps that is so hard to duplicate?

The lower sensor array dome is noticeably wrong in those shots. Otherwise it looks nice.

Yes I was completely puzzled by that as well. It is so obvious!
Also the bussard collectors both go clockwise (and are orange) but otherwise it looks great!

This model should be on display at the NASM while the eleven-footer is away being restored.

Not to mention the three footer/AMT model-like flat area at the edge of the underside of the saucer. I suppose the builder built it the way he wanted.

Better than looking at an empty case, I think.

I'm sure they removed the case for more selling room.


They should put the case up for auction. It'll probably fetch a nice price.

This model is half the size of the 11-footer. It would look, um, "inadequate" in that display case no matter how far it sticks out its little lower sensor dome.
