Star Trek 2, Wrath of Khan, the first one. Not the JJ Adams version.  Best Star Trek movie out there. First saw it WAY back in High School.  I believe this model was released around the same time back in 1982.

The decals sure looked like it. I had to set them in a south facing window for around six months to bleach the brown stains out of them.

Never came completely clean but close enough. The kit itself is easier to make then the 1/350 scale kits, but not without its issues.

I added some LED lights from a computer store and wired them up to a 9 volt battery for power. All in all I kind of like the way it turned out. Its now on the shelf with all my other Star Trek stuff.
