With the three-day holiday weekend now behind us (at least in the US), perhaps a new kind of labor is in order – one that involves plastic, hobby knives, styrene cement, and some spray paint. Marking 49 years of Star Trek, TrekMovie takes a look at the latest release from Round 2 Models, a take on the beauty that started it all, the 1:537 U.S.S. Enterprise Cutaway in this video preview of the kit.
The model is now available from online retailers, and if it hasn’t arrived in your local hobby shop yet, it should soon. Priced in at about $33.00 (varies by retailer), this kit is a bit larger than the classic 18″ Enterprise model that is so ubiquitous, but still manageably smaller than the 1:350 classic ship, which many modelers don’t realistically have room to display. As such, it’s a good mid-sized display of the classic Enterprise, though it will take some effort beyond the basic to build her in the non-cutaway mode.
