Overall Rating       Good kit, but with some problems.
Comments As far as accuracy goes, this kit is beyond question.

It is a snap-tight, so seams MUST be glued & puttied smooth. That is my only gripe. It cannot be considered accurate with the joints showing. Complains about the absence of "deflector shield grids" only shows ignorance. This is the only true commercialy-available representaion of the 1960's Video Starship with it's variations. As with most models (I find) construction SUCKS, It's the painting I enjoy! I am only at that point now, after 13 + hours of construction. I think I can do the next steps rather quickly.

Any who, after 30+ years of waiting, I REALLY like this Kit! ( I rate it as "Not Perfect, but Damn Close & Better than anything COMMERCIALLY better before!)
