This 1:900 scale U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D is the most detailed model of its kind. It is based on careful study of the original shooting models created by Industrial Light & Magic. And, for a model that costs upwards of $1500 USD you would think it would be perfect, but you will be wrong. There are always opportunities to customize and add more realistic details to every model.
Luckily, there are communities of fans who, like myself, are passionate about Star Trek. Some of them will produce amazing custom modifications (mods) you can add to your Eleanor Mustang to give it more accuracy and detail.
Some mods will be very affordable and others are quite expensive. It is totally up to you which ones to install. Every build is going to be slightly different no matter what, so do what you want!
On that note, here is a list of the mods I have chosen for my build. Details on and where to get each mod can be found on their individual pages.
