U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D Galaxy Class Starship


Model by Ron E.


Box Stock

AMT/Ertl kit 6618 (U.S.S. Enterprise-D)

Model Specifications:
Scale = 1/2500
Length = 25.6 cm
Width = 18.7 cm
Height = 5.4 cm

This model was built straight from the box, but I utilized the paint instructions from the larger 1/1400 scale AMT/ERTL Enterprise-D model kit to add detail, which was severely lacking on this small model.
I photocopied the paint template for the "Aztec" pattern from the 1/1400 model instructions down to 1/2500 scale, hand cut the "Aztec" pattern in three-inch masking tape, transferred the tape to the model and then hand painted the pattern.

The lifeboats were all hand painted onto the model using the same template as a location guide
The windows were added using a fine tip marker.
This is the only model I kept from my first attempt at this small scale.
