Which ones are which??

Far Left:  ISS Enterprise, Mirror Universe

Left Front: Enterprise NX-01 from Star Trek Enterprise

Left Back: Production TOS Enterprise

Far Right:  The Cage TOS Enterprise: difference from production being larger Bridge, end caps of nacelles (in back, can't be seen in photo), and larger dish (also can't be seen from that angle).  Technically, the forward section of nacelles (orange) should have the spikes, but I replaced them because they kept breaking off.  Same with the Mirror universe Enterprise)

Right Front: Kelvinverse Enterprise

Right  Back: Enterprise-A, Star Trek 4-6 (same model as Enterprise Refit Star Treks 1-3)

Here are a couple Excelsior Class ships and the Enterprise E, all unfinished.  I finished assembling and painting these several years ago I have to put decals on, but just have never done it.   I like the designs of these ships, just not these particular 1:2500 scale versions.

I placed the 1:2500 Enterprise-A for scale purposes.  A lot of people don't realize how much bigger the later classes are than the Constitution class. 

 

Of course, the Kelvin verse and Discovery have effed up all the scaling.  The JJ Prise is supposedly roughly the size of the Enterprise-D, and apparently so is the Enterprise from Discovery.

Nice. I encourage model building in a few of my students to help with hand eye coordination. I will have to look for some of these to give them to try.

I think encouraging kids to create anything, including model building, painting, even music, should be always done!   I wish schools would emphasize that as much as STEM.

Duuuude!  This is giving me ideas!  Nice diorama, using the same models I have built in the past.  Looks great, though if I had done something like that, I would have used blue for the phaser effect.

Not exactly models, but after going through some things, I found old insignias and ribbons I used to wear in the military.  I built this shadow box and gave it to my dad.
