Comments Awesome kit! This is the first kit I ever tried to light, and it looks great! The detail is so awesome, and it really looks like the Enterprise, unlike the AMT kit, which had so many problems with detail, breaking, and the panel lines. There are only a few things I was not entirely happy with. First is the price. It is an expensive model. It's well worth it, but it will set you back a bit. Second was fitting the wiring in the warp nacelles. I found it very difficult to close up the nacelles without gaps when I put the lightbulbs in. Third, I kind of wish it were marked as the Enterprise-A. But this is only a minor concern. I'm sure someone will make aftermarket decals with a "-A" on them.

But these things are all minor concerns. This is the first model of the movie Enterprise that I have built and been completely satisfied with. I'm looking forward to the Enterprise-E kit!
