66" USS ENTERPRISE Replica Model
(1/2 scale of Original Miniature)

After 2 1/2 years of on again/off again work, this most impressive model is finally done. There have been a lot of ups and downs during the construction of this model, but the end result makes it all worth while. I have to thank in particular Jim Key from Custom Replicas. Jim was incredibly helpful and supportive through this whole process, and was always there to answer questions, give advice, and most important, send me those lost spare parts!! I also need to thank my beautiful wife Christine for her patience, she put up with hundreds of hours of me 'missing' while I was working on this model. All in all, I'd say I have about 360 hours of build time into this model. Well, Enjoy looking around!
