I think it may be at the show in Vegas. October? November? Can't
remember when it was last year. Anyway, if Dave sees this thread he will
answer you for sure.

James (who would like to see a couple more 1/1000th ships - ;) ) :)

^^ The last two I could stand, hopefully with the D accurized a wee bit and options for the 3 nacelled version.

I hope someone will DESTROY the molds to the cutaway!

There are a handful of kits I'd like to see, but there are two essential ones I'm longing for. Eventually I want to see a gorgeous 1/350 scale TOS Enterprise. But for the more immediate future I want very very much to see a 1/24 scale TOS Galileo shuttlecraft, preferably done along the lines of Phil Broad's and FourMadMen's work on the vehicle. Either way if Thomas Sasser is involved then I'm sure it'll be great.

The cutaway, with a lot of effort, gives a pretty good representation of the grey lady. Much better than the 18" in fit and accuracy. Still I hope PL does some new kit as well as reissue some old ones. Some of those old kits are ridiculously priced now on eBay. Especially the Leif Erickson ship/SpockSnake/ and Galileo. Difficult for people (like me) who just want to build, and are not in it for it's "collectibility".!!!

If we are getting a 1/350 Ent maybe they could do a 1/350 for each of the letters? Wouldn't that be nice to have the same scale and detail for all the different E's

I guess you weren't around for the size duscussion a few months ago, eh? :)
The 1701-D would be 6 feet long by 5 feet wide; the 1701-E longer. betcha we won't be seeing a plastic model of them in our lifetimes. :)

I LOVE the Ertl 1701-D! I have ten of them.
I'd rather not see RC2 hijack the PL name to reissue Ertl kits; I'd rather see PL issue NEW kits - like a more-accurate 1701-D in 1/1000 (25").

The thing is not all the suffixed E's would really be marketable. Beyond the original and refit "A and TNG "D" I don't see a truly viable market for the others.

The ONLY Ertl trek kits I'd like to see reissued are the 2500 scales, and the 1400 scale Ent. C and Ent. E.


Other than that I want a 350 scale TOS Enterprise, 1000 scale Ent. A, Ent. C, Ent. D and Ent. E. I'd also like to see a 350 scale K'tiinga with parts to make either a ST:1 version or a ST:6 Kronos 1.

John,

I didn't say it was plausible. But I still would like to see a 1/350 Ent-D.

However, my mother once told me that "the only way to get something done in life is through persistance..." so I'm hoping that maybe my continual request for the E's in 1/350 will get answered. :tongue:

OK, I'll chime in and say in the snap scale, I'd like a 1/1000 Refit, of course, and a 1/1000 NX. A 1/1000 model with the options for both versions of Excelsior or the Enterprise-B would be very nice, though after that we're getting into big kits.

And when we go for big kits, I REALLY want a 1/350 TOS Enterprise!

I think we should make "Disseminator of Flawed Information, Self-appointed Expert" or "DFI SAE" ;) a recognized professional designation around here!

We coudl even print it on T-shirts.

Huzz, DFI, SAE
