    I found a site about an ENT-F-project:

    http://enterprise-f.bravofleet.ws/main.html

    the ship looks like something between the E and the Nebula! but your F-Ship is not the ENT-J from jaybat (the deflector is totally different) and i guess, it is also not "official"!

    about the ENT-Refit (MOV-ENT): i found a site with a cool idea! two models in one at the refit-ing! i think thats a good idea for a diorama!
    announce1but i can not find the sitewall1wall1wall1

    and now the "wings" for the nacelles! I printed the site twice, because i laminated the white parts in the middle on 1mm Cardstock and cut it off! thats important to glue the hull on the wings!

    Hi folks and sorry for waiting! (i´m work at the moment on a commercial project and have not so many time:oops:)

    Okay here the last pics of the build! it´s like a "step by step" instruction for the Nacelles! there was only two problem!

    1. the "plasma"-part has not the right lenght

    2. the end of the "wings" are too long (construction problem), so that we need a hole in two parts!

    I began with the main parts! at the most part i don´t use the original flaps!!!

    That was it, people!
    Glue all the parts together: the upper and bottom sid of the saucer, the hull with the neck and the wings, and the two nacelles and you have the


    ENTERPRISE C

    btw: you can use for this ship my "WOLF359"-stand:twisted:! you can find it in the download area of Zealot

    Wow, what an excellent build!
    Thanks for sharing. :D :D :D

    I hope to build all these enterprise ships in the future,
    Could you tell me in chronological order the easiest to the hardest to build?

    I was looking through this again and i know this sounds random, but I think the Bottom side of the saucer looks cleaner than most of the filming models I have seen. I think the whole model looks great, but something about the bottom of the saucer just mesmerizes me, I think it has to do with not seeing a lot of perfect circles in this hobby, not sure though, random eh?
