These detailed pictures of the small Enterprise A filming model were taken at the Christie's Booth at the Creation Convention in Las Vegas on Aug 17-20th, 2006. At the Christie's Auction this model sold for $42,000. This small model was actually built from the AMT/Ertl kit. It was painted and lighted by the special effects people at Paramount for long distance shots. Compared to the larger Enterprise A, the quality was not near as good. There were obvious rivets near the connecting dorsal (neck) for mounting purposes. The overall paint scheme was fair and there were visible flaw. The decals were glossy and did not blend well with the rest of the ship.
