Overall Rating       Well worth getting.
Comments Everything about this model is superior to the AMT kits, right down to the box it comes in! OK, it's not as big, but it's a lot more accurate, easier to paint, and the decal sheet is absolutely incredible. I cannot see any reason why anyone would need to get aftermarket parts for this kit. It's that good. The one problem is the copyright notice on the bottom of the saucer, but I just sanded that off. This kit is cheap: I only paid $10.50. It is, in my opinion, just the right size: Not so small that everything keeps breaking, like on the AMT 3 piece enterprise, but not so big that it's hard to find a place for it. I have mine sitting on top of my computer right now, next to the Polar lights Delorian. (Another kit well worth getting) I can tell from this Enterprise that we are in for some of the best Star Trek Kits ever made!
