USS Enterprise - TOS

Art Director Matt Jefferies created the Constitution Class for the TV-Show:
"I was concerned about the design of ship that Gene told me would have warp drive. I thought, ‘What the hell is warp drive?’ But I gathered that this ship had to have powerful engines — extremely powerful. To me, that meant that they had to be designed away from the body."

I bought the resin model kit of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 from the original Series in 1/1400. The ship is 20,7cm long when build and very accurate. I only filled some lines which will be replaced by Decals.
