Eaglemoss Star Trek Discast Metal and Plastic Parts Model
The diecast metal and plastic parts model of the Enterprise measures about 5.25 inches long (from the tip of the saucer to the end of the nacelles. The widest section of the saucer measures 2.5 inches wide. In this model only the saucer is made of metal, everything else is made 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.
A display stand is included. The base is made of metal and the attachable stand is made of translucent plastic which joins the model to the base.
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) is the central starship in the fictional Star Trek media franchise. The original Star Trek seriesfeatures a voice-over by Enterprise captain, James T. Kirk (William Shatner), which describes the mission of Enterprise as "to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before". The ship's design "formed the basis for one of sci-fi's most iconic images". A refit version of NCC-1701 appears in the first three Star Trekfilms. The 2009 Star Trek film, which takes place in an alternate timeline, features a re-conceptualization of the originalEnterprise.
