Launched in 2363 from Starfleet’s Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards orbiting Mars and placed under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard. During her career, the Enterprise served as the Federation flagship.
Product details –
This replica is built to the exact specifications and dimensions of the studio miniature that was used to film many of TNG’s scenes. QMx’s screen-accurate Artisan replica is 1:850 scale and measures 29.5 inches long x 22 inches wide x 6 inches high (11 inches high when mounted on the base).
Custom Electronics & Lighting
Custom-built electronics in the QMx Enterprise D control a complex lighting system that boasts more than 100 LEDs, including photon torpedoes and phaser arrays with sound effects.
- Warp and impulse engines
- Navigational and deflector arrays
- Anti-collision and formation signals
- Main shuttle bay with tiny shuttles docked inside
The lighting and sound system is operated by a four-channel remote control and is powered by a 12-volt AC/DC transformer.
Internally, the starship has a welded steel armature that gives this Artisan replica shape and strength. The body of the ship is constructed of the best materials available, including fiberglass, polyester resins, epoxies, acrylic and styrene.
Externally, the Enterprise D Artisan Replica has been carefully masked and hand painted with four layers of automotive paint to create a textured Aztec pattern.
Custom Mirrored Base
QMx’s Enterprise D Replica sits on a mirrored base that measures 34 inches long x 26 inches wide x 1 inch high. It’s perfect for showing off the details on the underside of the ship ? framed with a faux metal hull plate and bracketed by four plaques. Plaques on either side of the ship include the ship’s name and edition number.
- Change of Color ? Champagne, steel, copper or bronze, or a combination of these colors.
- Center Insert ? May be mirrored, gloss black or white.
- Custom Engraving ? You may have the base inscribed with a phrase of your choice, for an additional charge
Studio Pro Shipping Container
The Artisan Enterprise comes packed in a foam-padded, hand-built wooden crate, just like the crates used by the studios for shipping and storing filming props. The crate comes boxed in cardboard for extra protection.
Hand Made in the U.S.A.
As with all QMx Artisan replicas, the Enterprise D is made to order in our U.S.-based model fabrication facility by special-effects artisans (who build models for movies when they’re not working on your replicas). Not only does this allow us to offer you a replica of great intricacy and beauty, it also allows you to make your Enterprise D uniquely your own.
It takes six artisans approximately 200 hours to create an Enterprise D replica. This Artisan ship is made entirely in our shop, from the rapid prototyping to creation of mold patterns, casting of parts, electronics assembly, replica assembly, detail painting and graphics.
There are 100 Enterprise D Artisan Replica ships in this edition. Each hand-built starship is complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity and will cost you $9,995.
