The sixth Federation starship to bear the name Enterprise is also one of the most advanced ship designs in Starfleet.

This kit was built straight from the box with no modifications. The hull base color is Flat Gull Gray. The phaser banks were painted with Medium Gray. The dark hull panel details are Intermediate Blue.
   
The Navigational Deflector was painted with Light Ghost Gray on the front side. Immediately after painting it, the paint was wiped off with a cloth. This left gray in the crevasses only. The back of the Deflector piece was painted with Fluorescent Red.

Windows are painted Gloss White. The Bussard collectors were painted Gloss Red and then were treated to Fluorescent Red.
 
The blue glow of the engines was achieved by first painting them Mat Sky Blue, then painting a light coat of Testors fluorescent Horizon Blue.
 
The dedication plaque for the sixth Federation starship Enterprise. It was built by the same naval yard that constructed Captain Kirk's Enterprise more than a century ago.
