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?
But of course!
Our friend here may be referring to the Master Replicas model.

Yeah, that's what I figured.

Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

I think it's appropriate to reanimate this thread, here's some interesting news:

http://trekcore.com/blog/2014/04/ori...-exhibit-hall/



Now, they have almost 2 years to do a correct and faithful restoration.

I hope we all see this is going to happen, otherwise I might be tempted to think that in her current "Frankenstein" appearance she has better chances in the basement "to cover her shame".

P.S. Who is Steve Neill? I don't recall his name having been mentioned before, but I instantly liked the attitude he apparently has.

I only have a second to respond, but I've communicated with Steve Neill a few times. He's a great guy, and talented as hell. Look on Youtube for his video series, primarily covering his model builds. I wish I had a sliver of his talent. In spite of the fact that he has praised my work, I still think he was just bein' nice.

Re: The 11-foot TOS Enterprise model-

I've heard his name mentioned often, not just for makeup effects on TMP and sequels, but also for doing some fx work, I think electronics stuff, on TMP as well.

Don't know how recent this is, but not great news:

I believe that is from 2012. According to the RPF forums she passed away about 14 months ago.

Check out "Steve Neill's Garage" on Youtube. He does about three or four videos a week on what he's working on in his shop. They're very addictive watching. He does all sorts of stuff in addition to Star Trek. NuBSG, Star Wars, classic sci-fi, submarines, airplanes, and custom work. He's got a whole video series on the beautiful 66 inch TOS Enterprise he built from scratch and made kits from.
I'd like to win the lottery just so I can pay him to build a 11-foot hyper-detailed TOS Enterprise. And maybe a Battlestar Galactica just as big.

We can't forget to mention that Steve Neill is the guy who was tasked with sculpting and casting Spock's ears for TMP.

While I'm sure they're well-made, I dislike the ears from the first 5 movies because they lost the elegant curve of the series ones. They sorta got it back to form in TUC.

That's something I didn't actually recognize till I read somebody (Joan Winston maybe?) going on about that very same elegance being gone. I knew something was wrong, but associated it more with the vampire look as opposed to the piss-yellow skin from the series. Do we ascribe this to Wise's tastes, like the costuming?
