This is the second of these really nice snap together Polar Lights kits I have done. The original idea was to ditch the DY-100 that came from the Space Seed episode and have two Constitution class ships together. However the Starships are too heavy for the little support rod. So I used the second kit in a very different way. I took out a dremal tool and added some rod and plastic sheet to create a blowed up real good USS Constellation as seen in my favourite episode, "The Doomsday machine".

The kit came with the decals to do Enterprise or three out of the 4 destroyed Starships Enterprise found during her 5 year mission. Constellation, Defiant and Exeter. It did not include the 4th ship, but seeing as Enterprise destroyed the Excalibur I guess that would have been in bad taste.

After the dremel and card stock it was just a matter of light black airbrushing..
