seen in "Star Trek The Motion Picture"
model of the Enterprise "A", as seen in "Star Trek, The Motion Picture"
is yet another project created for a customer. Built from the stock AMT
1986 released kit (complete with the incorrect panelling detail which was

backdrop placed only inches behind the model coupled with lighting angle
created the effect. This photographic "defect" actually looked quite nice,
so I opted not to clean up these photos.
