The Ambassador Class starship Enterprise under the command of Captain Rachel Garrett, was lost in a battle with the Romulans in 2344. It is the second largest Starship Enterprise.

This model represents the standard version of the Ambassador Class. The kit was built with no major modifications.
   
The Deflector is painted Mat Sky Blue with Horizon Blue over top. Phaser banks are Dark Gull Gray. The intakes behind the Bussard collectors are Testors' Zinc Chromate.

Decals are from this kit and the AMT Enterprise-D kit for the registry and names.

The hull basecoat is Camouflage Gray, with major panels painted in Flat Gull Gray and Medium Gray. Lifeboats are painted Sand and the Bussard collectors are tinted with Gunze-Sangyo Transparent Red.
The movie era Starfleet insignias come from the small symbols in the AMT Reliant kit. The name 'Enterprise' on the shuttlebay deck is a decal from the Enterprise-D kit.
The following is the known information about the Enterprise-C dedication plaque. The launch date is only speculation, but we know that the ship was destroyed by Romulans in 2344.
