Overall Rating       Well worth getting.
Comments Praise for this kit is richly deserved. If it was from Hasegawa it'd cost at least three times as much, and I can scarcely believe it'd be any better. It's a snap-together kit, which for years has implied "simplified for children," yet it screams quality. I even think the size is right. It may not be the exact size to "realistically" sit next to your favorite resin piece or Ertl clunker, but consider the subject matter. It's TOS Enterprise - if you want a fleet line-up, buy another one and use different registry decals.

The price is so low (even with my local Target adding a couple of dollars' jerk fee) that there's really no excuse to avoid buying at least one. Polar Lights has made my modeling year; first with their big Godzilla, and now with the overall best 'Trek kit I've yet seen.
