|Date Reviewed||Apr 7, 2005|
|Overall Rating||Good kit, but with some problems.|
|Comments||Well for starters,the stand did not work properely when assembled,but in a wierd twist it works great with my Bandai USS Voyager model,So I went with it I switched stands,it works for me.Then as I am going along I had a real proble with the wiring,I got the entire ship together and the lights did not work properely,and I followed the instructions to the letter,I twisted the wires nice and tight,but this had no effect,so I had to take the lower half of the model apart again,and as I did that the left nacelle snapped off the ship broken,but easily repairable with some triming and some super glue,after I got the nacelle fixed I was able to concentrate on the wiring,after it took me 25 mins to retake the bottom apart again with carefulness to avoid breakage I soldered the wires to the connection and put it back together after I tested it to make sure it worked,and it did,but then I was curious if it would work with the stand that came with it,and it was a real bugger it still would not work with the correct stand,but it did with the Voyager stand,and Voyager worked with the smaller stand for this one,so I have left it as it is,and you know it worked out great on my display shelf.All in all this is a great kit,but a lot of care must be used and there is a real bad wiring problem,my only solution is soldering.And I would put it together again if I could.My Grade is: B+|
