Jason Marshall has entered his 1/350 Polar Lights TOS USS Enterprise Premier Edition. Here is what Jason has to say about his build.
I used the kit supplied parts to Make the 1st pilot version.
The most significant modification was to fill all the window openings as the 1st pilot was unlit and all the windows were decals.
In order to get window decals, I requested that Jerry at HDA Modelworx convert his window painting masks into a set of window decals.
I also sanded off all the grid lines and removed the detail from the aft nacelle caps (there’s debate as to what was there and on what version (the 3′ or 11′). I opted to go with no detail given the low level of detail on the 1st pilot model overall.
