Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701 1/650 Scale Model Kit Photoetch Shuttle Bay Set



$24.95


Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701 1/650 Scale Model Kit Photoetch Shuttle Bay Set:

Add a shuttlebay and greatly enhance the realism of the most famous starship ever created ... and one of the most popular models of all time.

Since you don't have to make any modifications to the original kit, this upgrade is suitable for use with nearly all currently available enhancements (i.e. lighting kits, decals, etc.).

Strategically placed holes allow the main observation rooms to be lit without the LEDs being visible.

Most portions of this kit are suitable for novice photoetch users.

What is Photoetch?

Photoetched parts are thick metal foils with portions eaten away by acid. A light-sensitive emulsion is covered with photographic negative and any unexposed areas of the emulsion are washed away. These areas can be eaten away by the acid. By properly designing the artwork, extremely detailed parts can be made.

Typically photoetch is used for cockpit detailing and other fine detail that is generally to small for injection or resin molding.

It ia also ideal for use as a light block in small or tight areas of a model that will be lit such as a grid or other area that would be difficult to mask effectively.

Also great for raised lettering and detail.
