Here are some more pics. It's finished now. The bridge was not very detailed, but it's there. And interestingly enough, the bridge is set at an angle so that the turbolift at the back lines up with the cylindrical extension at the back of the bridge dome. It's not perfect or accurate. But it was fun to put together. And that tiny hand in the second set of pics on the previous page is my son's. He really enjoyed helping me put it together.

Passing on the legacy to a new generation, eh, Zim? Congratulations! I can only hope when I become a father that my kid will be as interested in Star Trek as his dad!!!

BTW, that is a great model. I may one day look into getting one, since my DST TOS Enterprise was destroyed...

My DST 1701 fell off its stand twice, but it survived both crashes. Since then I have it there without a stand and it's pretty stable.

Thanks! I'm planning to get one of the smaller TOS Enterprise models sometime in the near future and try to add some details to it similar to your TOS.5 E. I think it would look pretty cool. And I'd like to say again that I love your version of the E. She's the best reimagined version I've seen. Keep up the fantastic work. I look forward to seeing more.

Absolutely! Both my son and daughter thoroughly enjoy watching old TOS episodes with me. It didn't take much to get my son interested. Just a couple of episodes of TOS hooked him. He also likes TAS. I have the complete season on DVD and he watches it a lot.

You can find the cutaway Enterprise on Ebay for anywhere from $10 to $50 bucks. Good luck.

I need to get that ship. I have the Art Asylum TMP Enterprise. But I really need to get the TOS model. That one is by far my favorite Enterprise.

I never got to go to that. I wanted to, but could never afford to go to Vegas. Now it's gone and I didn't get the "experience". That sux.

Just checking back in. Has anyone else got a cutaway Enterprise model? Am I the only one?

I have one, but it's sealed in the box, as a pristine collectable kit.
