“USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (A-E)” is what Benjamin calls his achievement of a long-desired modeling goal. He writes: “I always wanted to model all of them this way, but it would have been nice if they weren’t all huge! Let’s face it, if you build the Enterprise D to scale with some of the Enterprise A kits out there, the saucer section would be about 3' wide. So when the AMT/Ertl Cadet series came out, I was pumped — and then disappointed to discover they were being released so slowly. It took forever.” Benjamin scraped off most of the raised, molded detail on the ships for greater scale fidelity, applied Testors enamels, and painted nearly all the markings in lieu of decals.
