USS Enterprise NCC-1701 : analysis

Ecliarage de l'Enterprise NCC-1701-A

Over the past few months, I’ve been working on an Enterprise model kit, at least a version of the Enterprise : the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A. I won’t review again this model work, you can find many details here. Before I was ordered this kit, I knew nothing (John Snow) about Star Trek. I saw a few episodes when I was a kid but I did’nt imagine the extent of this universe. I won’t tell the all story of Star Trek (more than 700 episodes during 6 TV shows…) but instead have a look on the different Enterprise ships being at the center of the shows and the movies, using my modeler’s eye of course.

Star Trek Enterprise Polar Light (5) :
saucer painting

Assembly of the Star Trek Enterprise Polar Light, next episode. The painting of the saucer was the biggest challenge of this kit. Making a perfectly accurate painting pattern was very hard. I had to use paint masks sold under the brand Aztec wich reproduce the original pattern.

Star Trek Enterprise Polar Light (4) :
assembly test

And that’s it, the first assembly test is done. Not easy. Not easy at all. Some details are still to be finalised but I can see the end of the tunnel after a 3 months work, about 80 hours. The real complication with this ship is the design itself : beautiful, elegant, so that the design will inspire almodt all of the others ships seen in Star Trek serials and movies. However, for the model maker, what a pain in the ass !

Adopt a werewolf from Underworld

Hold onto your mouse, I remove your chair : philigore has just wrote an article. Yes, I know it’s crazy. I can’t believe it my self. He lied here, on his couch, with an empty look, mumbling incomprehensible words, drooling (well he’s not very young) onto a Power Rangers T-shirt he hadn’t replaced for months when suddenly he rose and shouted “tiens je vais faire un article !” (He doesn’t speak english). And that’s it, a wonderful article about an amazing werewolf sculpt from Twilight. Ow ! Sorry a “lycan” from the movie Underworld (I just got hit with a stick by philigore, well I liked him better when he was on his couch). It was worthwhile because he really surpassed himself.
