Polar Lights 1/350 scale Star Trek USS "Grissom" NCC-638 plastic model kit review

Be prepared for plenty of masking and painting for this small big-scale spaceship
FSDWBE0222_box

The Oberth-class science vessel USS Grissom appeared in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and was promptly destroyed by the Klingons. The filming miniature did survive and appeared in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine as well as the films Generations and First Contact, all with different markings.

Polar Lights’ 1/350 scale Grissom comprises 79 parts, but almost two thirds of them are clear parts for windows and lights. Thinking of its electrically inclined customers, Round 2 designed the model with holes and supports ready for wiring and lights. Photos on the box are useful for painting and decal placement, but the actual color and marking guide is printed on the sides of the inner tray. That makes the diagram small and difficult to follow. Also, lines linking the decal numbers to the marking locations are missing, which adds to the confusion.
