Upon return from her 5 year mission, the Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise was subject to upgrades and improvement just as any other vessel would. Known as a "Refit", nearly all of the ship's systems were overhauled along with swept back pylons upon which all new nacelles were installed. Rather than "battleship" gray, the craft glistened with pearlescent white surface paneling. This model measures nearly 3-feet long and features interior structures like the shuttle bay and stands firmly upon its base with the support from a metal rod. Marking decals and assembly instructions accompany the kit. Skill 2, ages 10 and up.
