New TOS Enterprise restoration
 
I absolutely love the work done to the Gray Ghost. B-E-A-utiful!

I noticed something though. They restored the upper surface of the saucer. They were NOT allowed to do that on the last restoration because the paint was the last of the original finish from the 60's. That's not what's bothering me. They managed to recreate the streaked weathering on the upper surface wonderfully. The bad thing is.... They didn't recreate the beloved "Rust Ring". :crybaby2:

According to what I read, they did NOT restore the upper saucer, only cleaned it. The original paint is still there.

Yeah, I got that word shortly after posting. They did so nice a job, the upper saucer has a sheen that matches the rest of the paint.

I'd like to see a good shot looking down on the saucer.
