Welcome to the home of Model Starships!

We provide build services for certain scale model starships, particularly Bandai Star Trek models.

You can see examples of our work in the gallery below

We hope you like what you see!

The Models we can build for you:

All our model starships come complete with LED lighting,
a wooden base with engraved brass plate, and a suitable power supply

All models are packed securely and fully insured for loss or damage whilst in transit to you

Bandai 1:850 scale USS Enterprise Refit NCC-1701


This is the 1/850 model kit from Bandai. The kit comes pre-painted, hence the level of detail, especially the complex aztek pattern, is outstanding. The completed model is approx 36cm in length.

The following modifications are made to the kit:

• New lighting system - all bulbs replaced with bright white/coloured LEDs.

• Custom Base - wooden, with engraved brass plate and switches to turn the lights on & toggle between the blue & amber deflector dish. Also has fader controls for the nacelles & the deflector dish.

• Arboretum windows - in the original kit these were simply coloured blue - these have now been cut out & lit through a blue transparency.

• New lighting system - all supplied bulbs replaced with bright LEDs, including flashing navigation lights
