Unlike the original
studio model, my "Enterprise" is spray painted flat white. The warp-drive
bussard collector domes are painted brick red. I painted the space energy/matter
field restoration cowls, at the aft end of the warp engines, aluminum. The main
navigation deflector dish is painted copper in front, and flat black on the backside.
The windows are painted black and gray. The entire model was then sprayed
with gloss coat, decals applied, and then sprayed with dull coat. I later discovered
that the original studio model was actually painted gray, with frosted clear bussard
collector domes. The lighting effect for the engines were created using Christmas
type light bulbs. The main deflector dish on the studio model was all copper
with a silver antenna in the middle.
