Star Trek The Next Generation

Enterprise-D Build

In 2021, Eaglemoss introduced the "Build the Star Trek U.S.S.Enterprise NCC-1701-D" project, where subscribers could build an incredibly detailed model of Captain Picard's famous starship.  With parts and instructions arriving every two weeks for over 24 months, the final result is a stunning 2-foot long model complete with lights, a separating saucer, and custom base.  These pages will document and follow our construction of this kit.  To learn more, visit the Eaglemoss USS Enterprise Buildup Website.  Enjoy!
