This is the 3-nacelled USS Enterprise as seen in the Next Generation's series finale, "All Good Things..."

I started out with the AMT Enterprise-D kit, then scratchbuilt the third (central) pylon, mega-phaser and other add-ons. I then sold parts from another kit for the third engine.
   
I used Future floor wax and hand-painted all the glossy Aztec pattern panels, which took about a week for the whole ship.
For the hull color, I used Model Master French Light Blue Gray.

Construction of the model was  easy to do, the only tough spot was the mega phaser under the saucer; getting the right angle to match the hull was the tricky part.
