Eaglemoss Build The Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701- D
Star Trek: The Next Generation Build The USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D is a British partwork that debuted in March 2021 in the UK, the US, select EU countries, and Japan.
Available by subscription from Eaglemoss Collections' websites and published under its Hero Collector imprint, collectors can build their own seventy centimeter-long (~27.5 inch-long) replica of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, constructed from hand-painted ABS and die-cast metal parts, and featuring electronic lighting.
Each four-week period, subscribers typically received with each issue four kit "stages" with parts for the model and a (220 × 284 mm) 32-page magazine containing the relevant sections of the assembly instructions.
Special Issues featuring art prints and die-cast shuttlecraft models were also developed by Eaglemoss for the line.
The 1:916-scale model was designed as an amalgam of a number of the USS Enterprise-D studio models that appeared in TNG episodes and on film.
Its sculpting most closely followed the six-foot studio model's design while its paint applications approximated the four-foot studio model's on-screen appearance.
The assembled Galaxy-class model could have been displayed in saucer separation mode with fully illuminated lighting, allowing both the primary and secondary hulls to remain lit when displayed separately. Both nacelles contain independent lighting units and were also to be powered by AAA battery packs.
Kit parts were designed to easily snap together and only a screwdriver, included with the first issue, was required for (some) assembly.
