1:650 Enterprise 1701-D Built by Dan Grumeretz for the Kuhn Global / Modeler Magic Collection

Years in the making, the huge Enterprise beastie is finally complete! Artist Dan Grumertez did this piece absolute justice as he brought it to life over the last 6 months. He took painstaking care to make sure everything was where it needed to be… including the individually numbered life boats on the hull (of which are the only decals used on this build)! Everything was paint! He painted layers of paneling to achieve the effect that was on the original 6 foot filming model, utilizing colors provided to me by Rick Sternbach for another build we are doing of which he was involved in creating. Dan used LED technology, providing even light throughout the model. This piece was made for the ages with a metal armature holding up it’s nacelles and heavy head. Dan did amazing work on this piece, opening the door to the 1:350 build he will be doing for us of this same model design…. the 6 foot studio scale Enterprise D. I wish to thank Dan, and anyone involved in it’s creation. It has been a long time coming, but I can tell you it was well worth the wait. I do apologize for the photo quality as these were taken with my Galaxy Note 3 Phone, and my aging hands are no longer steady. There will eventually be Blue Screen photos of this beast as I catch up on the models that still are in the queue to have Blue Screen photos taken.
