Star Trek Enterprise

Name of Model: NCC1701 The Original Series Enterprise

Yes, I know that the thumbnail does not look even remotely like something made out of LEGO® parts. Open the full thing though, and you'll see that this isn't a model being used for inspiration - it's actually built out of LEGO® parts and custom stickers. I'm not generally a fan of custom stickers, but they really sell the two Star Trek ships. What's really surprising is the scale of these things - some of the important angles are done with 1x1 "cheese" slopes. Which, of course, explains why this hasn't been done sooner - most of us still don't have access to this many cheese slopes, curve slopes, and click hinges in the right colors. By the way, if you're wondering about the top - that's a wheel element. The thing that the torpedos come out of (I'm not that much of a trekkie) looks like a chrome lamp cover to me. If you're really into Star Trek, make sure to check out legoman34's larger Star Trek directory which includes a few more excellent Star Trek models at various scales (at least, I think they're not to the same scale - anyone know their ships well enough to be sure?)
