Polar Lights

USS Enteprise from Star Trek

1/350 scale model of the most well know space vehicles ever shown on television. It comes with over 50 parts (some clear) and the option to built the model according to how it looked in the 1st two pilot episodes. I picked the version that finally made it into the televison show once it was approved by the TV network.
