Scratchbuilt TOS Enterprise

By Jerry Terrell

So old, so beautiful...

Looks almost like the series shots!

This is a 28" scratchbuilt TOS Enterprise NCC-1701. All major parts are wood. Most were turned on a lathe. Detail parts are plastic and brass. 12 volt window and bridge lighting (some windows enhanced for photo) run through hollowed areas in wood. Engine nacelles contain 6 randomly blinking LEDs in frosted dome. This represents approximately six months' work.

I used Enterprise blueprints (correcting known inaccuracies) and available photos for reference. I tried casting the parts of this model in clear resin and fiberglass for a better lighting effect, but it was too costly.
