Quantum Mechanix has announced one of the biggest Star Trek Enterprise models to date.  The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 is a 1:350 scale model that the company designed to film specifications.  That means all you filmmakers out there who are doing your own Star Trek flicks will drool over this piece as it is more detailed than any other licensed ship replica.

Design features include:

  • Decorated VIP lounge complete with crew members.
  • Botanical garden with foliage and people.
  • Illuminated cargo/landing bay, including shuttles and work bees.
  • An individually-numbered, brass dedication plaque on the mirrored base.
  • Semi-transparent pearlescent paint is applied by hand in overlapping layers using multiple masks to create an Aztec patterning.

Custom-built electronics in the QMx Enterprise Refit control a complex lighting system that sports a total of 130 LEDs, including:

  • Blue LEDs for warp-engine illumination.
  • Warm white LEDs for interiors.
  • Blinking formation lights.
  • Anti-collision lights that flash in a pulse-strobe pattern.
  • An active deflector dish that ramps up to an amber glow and brightens to blue when warp engines are engaged.
  • Firing photon torpedoes that flash red and white.

All lighting systems are operated by a four-function remote control and are powered by a 12-volt AC/DC transformer.

It takes about 100 hours to build the Enterprise, so if you really, really want one of these, you better let QMx know now. You probably also ought to have $4,500 at the ready, ’cause that is what it will set you back.

    1:350 scale brings it in at what size? And where in Spoiler Manor would this fit?

      This would have to go in Major Spoilers Sound Stage A, where we are currently at work on our first major Star Trek fan film. If someone wants to buy it for us, we’ll give them an Executive Producer credit. ;)

    By some quick research, I think the ship would be somewhere near 1 meter long…..40 inches or so.
