Well, I've seen a couple of other modelers photo's of this kit, and I saw photo's of one modelers completely scratch built model and I was tempted to go on evil bay and pick one of the AMT kits up for a new project. So today I get home and there on my door step sits my package, I broke open the shipping container and stared in disbelief at one of the most horrible models of a Starfleet vessels I have ever come across. I have spent over an hour looking at ways to make corrections to the shell and warp nacelles just to make it look presentable, I had planned on adding a completely scratch built interior (of my idea what a more realistic interior might have looked like if the vessel was functional) but I see I have several areas to add bracing and filler strips to bulk up the warp pylons and deflector band around the hull. The main hatch it way off the mark and will be cut out and displayed in the open configuration, also I want to elevate the main flight deck so the pilot and copilot can actually see out the view ports (granted it is a limited field of vision but everyone likes to see where they are going when on a flight). I also want to try and install some type of drive systems in the engine compartment along with a small warp core with matter and antimatter bottles and to fix the nasty warp nacelles I'm looking at cutting out the inboard recessed section that looks like an elongated capsule from the extra nacelles in the PL 1/1000 enterprise kit. This needs to be shortened to fit the shuttle nacelle and use some etched roof walk grating from a model railroad project to fill in the flat area inside. I've printed some blueprints of the shuttle exterior and interior and made interior changes to match my ideas and should be a good looking bird when finished. Not cannon star trek but it looks like a great project.
