If you won one of the test shot Enterprise models that Round 2 will have at this year's WonderFest, what would you do with it?

Build it? Keep it as a one-of-a-kind (well, one of 3) collectible? Sell it on evilBay?

Ordinarily, I'd build it because model kits are meant to be built. But because I don't have the display space for a kit that size I'd probably sell it to someone who would appreciate having it.

Why do you want to know????
Me, I would build it up of course!! Why else would I want it or to put it another way, what's the point of getting a model when you have no intention of building it?? Are you going to display an unbuilt kit on your shelf??? What would be the point of that???

I believe the test shots in question are just that,...sprue pulls only. No decals, instructions, etc.

Would only be good as a collectable until the kits are on the street and the missing componants are available. It's my hope an aftermarketer gets them so that they can begin work on aftermarket goodies.

Well, it never occurred to me NOT to build it. Then I heard someone say they wouldn't because they thought it would be more valuable if left as a kit. That got me wondering if there were others who thought that way--or perhaps would do something else I hadn't even considered.

In this day and age, I occasionally hear that, and it still boggles my mind. Re-pops, re-issues, 'Anniversary' re-releases... hello? Sure a really (super!) rare ITC F-108 Rapier sold for $1283.00 on Evilbay back in March of this year; but that's an exception, and not the rule.

I once heard a local modeler whining, yes, whining about how mad they were at Revell for re-popping a number of vintage models thereby ruining his retirement plans... now, I'm no financial genius, but not Wiley E. Coyote would base his retirement plan on hoarded vintage model kits! :freak:

Good point. Maybe his retirement involved a used trailer and a fishing pole, and even then he would need a LOT of vintage kits.:)

I wont be going to wonderfest, but if I did and won I would give the kit to an underprivileged trekkie down on his luck- heck I'd even throw in a BIG tube of bondo to help him with those lines!
