The starship Enterprise in Beech. I wimped out and chose the original from the TV series Star Trek as all the parts are circular or cylindrical so was easy to turn.

Don’t call it wimping out – remember what Scotty said in the Next Gen ep “Relics”: “NCC one seven oh one. No bloody A, B, C or D.”

Heh, kinda funny on the timing: I’ve been playing STO and my newest character just got their “legacy” styled ship. (aka, the classic Enterprise)

Keep em coming!

If I show this to my son, he’d be begging for lathe time (or me to turn it for him)! Great job. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet! I grew up with the original series and would have killed for a model like this to play with…no merchandising back then. As it was, I had to use square Lego pieces to build it in 1967! I have made a lot of rockets and some Star Trek/Star Wars toys for my boys over the years, but yours is great.
