Trying to order this beauty:

But their website gave me an error at the very last screen after putting in credit card info.

Called their tech support, helpful person noted that some other people were having trouble and that her supervisor would send an alternate link to my email. We'll see what happens.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

She's a beauty! Except they fucked up: On the side of the saucer section, they've erroneously added "Starship U.S.S. Enterprise United Federation Of Planets"

Fail.

That detail never existed on the Japanese original. I accept that I may be wrong about this, I'll retract once I've watched The Movie again.

Yeah, I don't think any ship has ever had writing on the edge of the saucer. I may see if I can scrape that bit off or something.

Models of the NCC-1701-A are traditionally white. I'm not quite sure why actually, because in the films they're as grey as anything else.

They were never "white" per se. They had intricate cross-hatching of different colors.

So, like Anax, you only see white?
