Overall Rating       Not good at all. You really have to want it bad.
Comments Well, yesterday i finished my one, and i must add some points to my above review, and also i must change my rating. So here you can read why:

Some of the tabs broke off while i try to get the parts together (especially at the neck and the nacelle pylons), the seams are much more obvious than i thought they would be, the whole kit is too colorful to me (ok, maybe correct compared to the studio model, but hey, have you taken alook to the movies? MUCH more subtile color variants there), i damaged the painting in some spots while detaching the parts from the sprue, and i really HATE the space between the saucer-edge parts.

It will look nice with the lights turned on FROM A DISTANCE, but i won`t allow a closer look. Will i buy another one, or another Bandai-Trek-model? I guess not. Maybe yes if its the Reliant, just to give the Enterprise her most famous adversary. But no other ships. Sorry, Bandai, i awaited more.
