On The Bench 270: Bill Early’s Enterprise

I don’t know if this qualifies for “On the Bench” or not, as I can only get parts of it on the bench at any one time! It’s a half scale (of the filming model) TOS Enterprise. A fiberglass kit I picked up several years ago, it’s 66 inches long. I’ve made up a plywood armature for it so that it can be disassembled for transport. The saucer section is 30 inches in diameter. The plan is to have a complete lighted shuttle bay, with a shuttle craft sitting on a working turntable. It’ll be lit with windows, warp lighting, and nav strobes.
