Comments I haven't actually made this kit but judging from the photographs and reviews I've read it seems like a real wasted opportunity. For this larger scale I would have at least expected Polar Lights to do the aztec panelling as finely engraved or raised lines. This would look so much better than Polar lights bare plastic surfaces and more realistic than decals or just printed on aztec panelling like the Bandai Star Trek kits. I suppose this also means that the upcoming 1/350 Enterprise-A will not have moulded in aztec panelling on the saucer section, if so I'm afraid I won't be buying. I'd rather pay a bit more and have that extra detail done properly.
