This was my very 1st star trek ship. Which means this kit is VERY OLD SCHOOL. The parts fit but with gaps so break out the clothes pins and rubber bands to hold those parts together while the glue dries. The kit has about 31 or so parts,the saucer is real easy and no trouble. The engineering section is a pain it is cut into 2 upper halves 1 lower half, then the front deflector is 1 piece except for the dish that goes on last and then the shuttle bay doors are 1 piece this is where you must take it slow use rubber bands to hold it together then once dry attach the ends. once that is done build the warp nacelles and the struts. The warp nacelles come split in half and you attach the 2 ends then the front collar and the rear. after that it is just the intercoolers 1 on the side and two on top no biggy there now you will assemble the 3 major sections the saucer the engineering section and the 2 warp nacelles and build the stand which is very wobbly as it keps the ship in its cradle by 1 little post sticking into the bottom of the ship. The finished product was pretty good for it's day and is presentable but the bonus is it comes with all the sister ships names and hull numbers or cut the decals to make your own name and number have fun i did with my friends when i was a kid we all had one and we all had a different name on our ships. so be inventive.
