I hate to contradict the people who have already concluded that the article is simply a rehash of the 1701 Club updates, but my article is way more than that. It's the full "making of" story of the kit, told from my viewpoint, in at least two (and probably three) parts with numerous unpublished illustrations. Part 1 will detail the history & evolution of my Enterprise plans, including the "Trials & Tribble-ation" plans, the 1991-92 restoration, the Remastered series, the Master Replicas Enterprise, and the full-size Galileo mock-up. I'm still writing Part 2, but it will cover the early stages of the development of the 1:350 Polar Lights kit, while the probable Part 3 will go into great detail re. the production of the final kit. For completeness' sake the third part will probably touch on the bow light & grid line debates, which were covered in a 1701 Club update, but that that's just tough.

The other two articles are all-new, too, and include a review of the first test shot, plus Jim Small's story of building the 1st test shots, as well as his contributions to planning the kit.

I was in my LHS today and asked if he carried sci-fi & fantasy modeller magazine and he said he didn't but then he asked what issue and when the issue would be out and I told him so he said he'd see if his distrinbutor could get it for me! Fingers crossed.

Sic fi and Fantasy Modeller can be ordered by any comic book store, but you need to tell them in advance so they order enough copies. They might ask for a down payment too.

I received mine yesterday.

This magazine is something that makes your jaw drop!

I am not a very well informed person when it comes to the "Enterprise" although a lifelong fan so, I was completely crazy when I saw the pictures.

Man... what incredible pictures of the old lady "in person"!!! :eek::eek::eek:
