After my experiences with gluing a model together first (see here and here), before I even opened the plastic on the Enterprise A, I got smart and searched for model painting videos on Youtube where I found an excellent suggestion. Why not remove the parts from the sprues so I could clean up any edges, but then tape them to a board for painting, and glue them together after the priming and base paint was done. Genius!

Enterprise A in Spacedock

I’m glad that I did this model the last of the three since it’s smaller than the Excelsior, although a bit larger than the original Enterprise. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll do any of the detail painting before assembly or not, but there’s not much as much painting required as there was on either the original or Enterprise B.

    When do we get pictures of the finished ships, with decals and such? Further, when will you publish your hex based combat game using the ships? πŸ˜‰

      You’ll see the finished original series Enterprise soonβ„’. As far as hex based combat… that’ll have to wait a long time until I’m crazy enough to pick up another new hobby. πŸ˜›
