Kay Alett:
My first edition of the Eaglemoss Enterprise build arrived. This is going to be a massive model build taking place over the next 30 months!  :o


I set a BIC lighter on the poster for scale, the poster by the way, is a life size representation of the finished model.

Jade Sinapu:
How much do you think it would weigh?
Just curious.

Cool model to build!  I wish I had that kind of time...

Unsure on the weight but since it's going to be almost entirely metal die cast it's gonna be rather heavy.
Being disabled I have nothing but time. I just have to make adjustments to my budget. I usually set aside a "splurge budget" of money that I can use either in emergencies or for something fun or nice for myself and this is going to be a bit over half each month's splurge budget so that means while I'm doing this build I won't be able to get stuff like snacks or the odd transformer here and there or something but I think it'll be worth it.
Plus I think it'll do my mind some good to have some kind of long term project to focus and work on.

On the subject of time still I think anyone could have time. This isn't a model that you get all at once, it's a subscription. They send you a kit that comes with a screwdriver and screws and instructions and it's just a small piece. I have the first two kits in my subscription welcome edition and it's just half of one of the nacelles and the other is a small piece of the under side of the ship. I have 0 experience with models and I could probably put them both together in maybe 30 minutes or less.

You can get a good idea for how it'll work if you go on youtube and watch Emgo316 build the Ecto-1. He makes a video for each edition and piece of the build and some of them are rather short. After a while you've built a bunch of little bits and pieces of the ship and then they send you a bigger chunk that brings it all together and you realize that without even realizing it you've built half the ship already.

It's also designed to be as easily accessible as possible. You don't have to paint anything, you don't have to put any stickers on, you don't have to glue anything. Most of the parts and pieces snap together or screw together. That probably sounds boring to seasoned model makers who love painting and applying decals but it's a godsend for those of us with no experience who would like to get into models. Or even just those folks who might not have time anymore or the sure and steady hands to apply fine paint apps and decals.

Jade Sinapu:
Metal die cast!  Now that is cool!

cause the rat:
AWESOME Kay! Looking forward to updates on this project.
