The widest section of the saucer measures 2 inches wide. The body and saucer are made of metal while the nacelles and pylons are mode of plastic.
Throughout the model there are details such as sections, grid lines, windows/hatches, etc that are embossed onto the surface; this together with different color (silver, grey, red, black) highlights gives the model a very realistic and accurate look. There are translucent colored plastic inserts in the nacelles and saucer that further enhances its details.

The model comes packaged in a two half plastic clam shell and this comes enclosed in a cardboard box. The box measures 6.75 inches by 5 inches by 2.
These models are not made to an specific scale. They just seem to be made to fix a certain box size.
A magazine is included with the model. Each magazine is about the particular model (design, history, schematics, specifications, trivia, etc) and measures about 11 x 8 inches and has about 18 pages. The printing is very high quality with full colored pages. The covers have a glossy finish and thicker stock. The inside pages are also full colored and of thicker stock (but not as thick as the cover).
The magazine is in mint condition and will be shipped properly protected to remain like that.
This is not a toy. Although made of metal and of solid construction, it is quite fragile and will not survived being played with. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) (or Enterprise-E, to distinguish it from prior and later starships with the same name) is a fictional vessel. It is a Sovereign-class starship in the Star Trek franchise. It appears only in the films Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek Nemesis, where it serves as the primary setting. It is the sixth Federation starship to carry the name "Enterprise" and the seventh Starfleet ship to be named as such.
The Enterprise-E, a Sovereign class starship, launched in 2372 from the San Francisco Fleet Yards under the command ofCaptain Jean-Luc Picard. Picard and most of the key officers were from Enterprise-D. According to the non-canon novel Ship of the Line, the originally planned name for the vessel was USS Honorious, and Montgomery Scott was part of the team of engineers that designed the Enterprise-E.
In the film Star Trek: First Contact, the Enterprise participates in the Battle of Sector 001, destroying a Borg cube, and subsequently travels back in time to stop the Borg from interfering with Zefram Cochrane's first contact with the Vulcans. The Borg hijacked and almost assimilated the ship until Captain Picard and Data reclaimed it. In Star Trek: Insurrection, the crew stops a Son'a attempt to forcibly relocate the Ba'ku people from their homeworld. In Star Trek Nemesis, the Enterprise is heavily damaged while stopping Shinzon from using a weapon of mass destruction to destroy all life on Earth. The ship returns to spacedock to undergo extensive repairs.
In the non-canon comic book miniseries Star Trek: Countdown, which serves as the official prequel to the events of the 2009 filmStar Trek, the Enterprise-E – under the command of Captain Data – confronts the antagonist Nero, but misses stopping Nero's ship from entering an artificial black hole, which sends it back in time to set in motion the alternate timeline depicted in the new film series.
In the novels published by Pocket Books after Nemesis, the Enterprise-E remains under the command of Picard as of 2385 in the 2013 novel miniseries Star Trek: The Fall. Data was resurrected in the novels similarly to the comic miniseries Countdown, but he decided not to re-enter Starfleet.
A designer's blueprints show that the Enterprise has new phaser banks and torpedo launchers in Star Trek Nemesis that were not present in Star Trek: Insurrection. It also shows the warp nacelles have been moved upwards and forward slightly. Star Trek: Ships of the Line, written by Star Trek's technical consultant Michael Okuda, states that the Enterprise can travel at up to warp 9.995.
