|Overall Rating||Good kit, but with some problems.|
|Comments|| Well, I got the kit in the mail last week, and I've already put it together...on the whole it's very nice. The pre-printed paint scheme is wonderful, as a previous reviewer said, much better that I could have done on this scale. The lighting system, when the kit is assembled, is spectatular, better than anything I have done in other kits with fiber optics. However, the parts fit is a little spotty, leaving gaps and light leaks throughout the model, which in my case required a measure of spot filling and painting (super-glue for assembly is a must, espically when it comes to the warp engines.)
On the whole, the finished product is very sharp, and a real attention-getter, though for a $70 snap-together kit, the parts fit could have been better. (Also, the packaging for the kit is a wonder to behold-art and design classes could buy the kit just to see how well an item like this can be produced and designed. The package design itself rates 5 stars in my book.)
