    At our very first meetup almost one year ago, I brought a paper model of the USS Grissom to display on the table. Well, Murrianna was the only soul brave enough to attend that first meeting. My wife and I enjoyed meeting with Murrianna very much, and much to my dismay at the time, my wife gave Murrianna my paper model! Since then I have discovered that it's actually more fun to give away my models and see the enjoyment people get from displaying them in their homes. Thank you Shelly and Murrianna for that life lesson! Since that very first USS Grissom, I have constructed more than 20 models for friends, family, and coworkers. I've built everything from beagles to spaceships, airplanes, and everything in between. Now I'm giving up the prized possession of the fleet! This is the refit Enterprise featured in Star Trek, the Motion Picture. The model also includes a scale shuttle craft, a transport pod, and the Vulcan shuttle that carried Mr. Spock to the Enterprise. This gorgeous model is just over 2 feet long, and is constructed almost entirely of paper. There's a bit of plastic in the windows of the arboretum, as well as some rocks and model plant material. The hangar door can be modeled open or shut, and there is a transport pod, a workbee, and containers inside. This meetup group has given me the opportunity to make such great, new friends, and share my love of Star Trek in different environments that I otherwise wouldn't have done. From that very first meeting, to the most recent meetup I've attended, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself every time! I'd really like to see as many people show up at this picnic as we can get! We have 90 members now (woo hoo!) and would love to meet as many of you as we can get to come to the picnic on the Columbia River. All attendees with be eligible for the drawing for this beautiful model! It won't cost you anything!

    it does look amazing! is it a kit or did you just make this from scratch? I have actually started my first model this month since I was a kid, and it seems like I could really enjoy doing this hobby again. I look forward to talking it up a bit.

    It's actually constructed entirely from paper, printed, cut, and glued together.
