Repainting the Enterprise - the original, no bloody A, B, C or D

Me too. I've seen her in her previous 90's update (and got annoyed with said "refurbishment" for all the innaccuracies and "improvements") so I'm delighted to see her looking fully restored to health and original appearance.

Yeah, I remember when they put that weird exaggerated grid pattern on her hull.  It looked awful.  It's nice that the old girl looks pristine in time for her 50th anniversary (well, technically her 52nd, since the miniature was built in 1964...). ;)

The model looks great now! I remember it hanging at the SMithsonian when I was a kid ans we went there on a family vacation. There is a page in a photo album which as a picture of the enterprise hanging, and below is a picture of little 5 or 6 year old me staring up at it in awe. 

I'd love to get down there and see the ship restored to it's 60s glory! Someday, maybe when the kid is a little older, family trip to DC!
