1:650 Star Trek Nemesis Enterprise 1701-E (Photo Set #1)

This 41 inch model was mastered by Richard Long. Painted to replicate the USS Enterprise we viewed in Star Trek: Nemesis, this was the most complex paint scheme of any Enterprise to date. The model used for filming the movie was a CG model, and therefore did not exist physically. We were able to obtain the CG files to closely replicate what we saw on film. This model, after one complete overhaul by artist Marc Elkins, is now in it’s second overhaul with artist Dan Grumeretz. When completed it shall reside in the USA in the collection of Albert Siow.

This piece has a 2016 Modeler Magic appraised value of $25,000 USD

Salzo V2 Studio Scale RED 3 (Biggs Darklighter)

When Mike Salzo released the V2 studio scale X-Wing, it was much different than the Captain Cardboard X-Wing, even though it was the Capt Cardboard version that was morphed by Mike to be the V2. It was beefier, and more like the hero models we viewed in Star Wars in 1977. To this point, most everyone would build either RED 5 (Luke’s), or RED 2 (Wedge)… so I asked Richard Long to build this as RED 3… Biggs Darklighter’s X-Wing. This would complete the Death Star Trench Trio I had planned on displaying together. Richard did beautiful work capturing the green tints that are on RED 3…. which is the only filmed X-Wing model to have survived filming after Episode 6 was completed. All others were blown up for the films. As we did with RED 2, we placed a new cockpit with Biggs as it’s pilot, and placed the proper droid behind him. At this point in time…. we are the first to do so world-wide with these studio replicas. This piece now resides in Germany, and in the collection of Michael Keuhner

1:350 Master Replica USS Enterprise & REL Botany Bay

When Master Replicas came out with their amazing USS Enterprise in 1:350 scale, artist Richard Long made the Botany Bay to scale with it, making for a great display. This Botany Bay was eventually re-released by Mike Salzo of MSLZ22 Models, and I believe Starship Modeler now owns these patterns.

The REL Botany Bay has a Modeler Magic Estimated Value of $700 USD
