  1. Looks great! probably even better in the dark... I don't own the tools needed but it looks like it's worth the time and effort. which light kit(s) did you use? not so sure about the blue and yellow colors on the nacelles but that's just a matter of preference i guess. great job.

  2. Thanks for the tips. I've never put together my own light kit but will check out your advice and look into tenacontrols and the others. 
    May be beyond my skill set, but nuthin ventured, nuthin gained. Any tips always welcomed! Is the 50th anniversary AMT model the best staring point? can't afford the 1:350 scale model.

    Nope. That is why I go to the surplus store, buy LEDs and hook them up to a 9 volt battery. In fact I am working on a Excelsior right now.

    Thanks! so you're DIY on the lights. nice. I remember the windows were clear plastic allowing the lights to shine through on the old version. how does that work out in the current version?

  4. When I was younger I built a model of the NCC1701 Original series Enterprise. It had some issues (nacelles were hard to get straight) but it came with a simple light and sound kit. Most excellent for what it was. I have been unable to find it or anything like it... the one I have found is extremely expensive and lights and sounds are bought separately... comes to over $500 and is probably beyond my skill level and definitely my budget. Does anyone out there know of any reasonably priced model kits (TOS Enterprise) that has lights included or available? 

    Thanks!
