The kit's 1/677 scale.
Be careful in lighting the nacelle struts, as you'll need to remove a section of those hinge sprues in order to get the wiring and lighting into the engines.

The original version of the Voyager kit had an opaque deflector cast as one piece with the housing. Don's kit was designed to correct that flaw

What you have is the "Special Edition" version of the kit.

Shuttles are from Federation Models.

Nice start! I'm doing the spoon ship myself after these enterprises are done.

Nice! Ive got a 1/350 refit but im scared to touch it next. Gonna build a few others first. I have a Reliant on the way and im looking at any enterprise B-E trying to decide...

Have you been watching Steve Neil and his build of the Reliant? He is having quite a bit of trouble with it. Also, the refit is probably the hardest of the three 1/350 enterprise models.

I have John, I know the reliant is tough but I have no desire to have the shuttle bay in at this time, so i believe the doors will be closed. That will make it easier but we will see. I like the detail it shows. Yeah the Refit might be the hardest but (dont shoot me) I dont have any interest in the TOS enterprise and im on the fence with the NX-01. Im gonna build it as the Enterprise A though

Brings back memories.....

From what im about to go through for my windows i think the memories were not so pleasant??? ;D
I know im taking the longer route but my hands are not steady enough and i dont have the best dremel to perfectly cut out the windows. This works best for me

Nice steady progress. Cutting out the windows on any model can be a daunting task.......

I definitely understand that.
The tedious part was going back in and filling all of those windows with Micro krystal Clear
