The show's deliberate decision to emulate the original Trek's "feel" seems to be paying off.  The Enterprise looks like it was done up to meet modern viewers' expectations, unlike the somewhat weird JJ Prise.

Nice model by the way!  YesYes. Hopefully in time other ships will appear in kit form.  I don't have Paramount Plus, so I have no idea if the Klingon ships made their appearance yet.  I'd like to see their interpretation of a D-7.  But to be honest, the TMP Refit Enterprise and K'tinga were just about perfect in every way to me.

Very fine work, indeed. I heard Round2 was at least considering making the changes to the 1/2500 Discovery Enterprise to produce a Strange New Worlds version. I wonder if they would consider that for this 1/1000 kit as well.

Turned out great.  Quite an impressive model.

Thanks,

I found that the decals are easy to use, as they are in rather large sections, so it is not as imtimidating as it looks.  I have built several Round 2 ships with the all-over decals, and all with beautiful results.  It was actually a lot of fun, putting them on.  They all fit perfectly, matching the panel lines.  A lighted magnifier and patience will help a lot.  Nice design work!

I've never seen the show but that is one heck of a job you did.  I'm planning on doing a 1/350th NX-01 by paint and stencils but I might just try the decal method.  If that comes out even half as good I'll be happy.

Oh wow, that's beautiful!!! 

Is all the aztec work decals? Easier than painting but still a heck of a lot of work- good show!!! Heart

Well!

    Looks like you built her Tite and Rite! I will admit those decals would've permanently damaged my eyes, For Sure! A Very Nice Job!

Beautiful job!  The decals look intimidating but you did a very clean job.  Cheers!

Sorry for the original lack of pictures all. 

Got a lot of practice applying decals with this kit. Am pretty proud how its turned out so far. Constructive critique is always welcome.
