For a pricey kit you would think that they would have contracted a builder who knew how to use elastic bands.Those unsightly gaps on the forward wall of secondary hull are nothing to be proud of.

It has the makings of a lovely model if they get those kinks worked out though.

Well – that's s 3D prototype and hasn't really been "assembled" yet. There are no alignment pins or anything else you would want in a kit.

It's based on Charles Adams' 3D CGI model – with additional adjustments made based on the actual filming miniature.

Would be about 24" (~.6 meters) long when built and $100 USD isn't actually that bad for large and complex kit nowadays…

StarCruiser is correct.

Try finding the TOS Enterprise for less than $150 USD in that scale. Besides you would most likely want the lighting kit as well as the other add ons. It does make the entire process quite expensive. But done well are just wonderful.

It doesn't look like there will be any interior areas to display. But then we have never seen much of the inside of one of them. No open bridge or shuttle bay.
