    This page has some of my collection of Star Trek models that I've built. I've done several cover paintings for Star Trek models made by Revell/Monogram and AMT/ERTL.The kits are of varied quality, with teh Monogram/Revell being more accurate, and there are some fun stories that go with them. Unfortunately, I don't have photos of the built kits yet, so to see the paintings for the covers you can click on the thumbnails below. Scroll down here to see my models of kits I have built.

3 Enterprises Box Cover

3 Enterprises from Star Trek

   I painted this astronomical cover for the AMT/ERTL release of the 3 versions of the U.S.S. Enterprise. See the painting Behind The Stars without the models in front of it. It was not the most accurate kit, but they couldn't even be bothered to paint the models before they phographed them for the kit box! They were a pretty lazy company and eventually moved to Mexico. Well, anyway I decided to photograph my models in a configuration that would show what the cover would have looked like if they had done better. Close-ups follow....

USS Enterprise NCC 1701 Original     USS Enterprise 1701
This is my 1/2500 scale model of the original TV series USS Enterprise N.C.C. 1701. The model is 4.5" long and the extra markings are all hand painted. There are lenses on the navigation lights and I hollowed out the front of the nacels to insert orange bike reflector material. With the hand made clear domes that cap them, they flash in natural light.

USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A
USS Enterprise 1701-A
This is my 1/2500 scale model of the movie version USS Enterprise N.C.C. 1701-A. The model is 4.75" long and the extra markings are all hand painted. There are lenses on the navigation lights and I hollowed out the front of the lower hull and inserted a dished translucent blue navigation deflector. I also built all of the extra phaser turrets and painted the "aztec" style plating on the hull. It is hard to see in this photo.

Star trek Runabout
This is one of three Runabouts that came with the Deep Space 9 Space Station kit.

Uss Enterprise NCC 1701-C
U.S.S. Enterprise N.C.C 1701-C

This kit was actually pretty nice. Sorry about the poor image around it. I had just gotten my first computer and this was an artifact of starting to learn Photoshop <cringe>
