from "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" (1979)
About the Design
Paramount's 1979 "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" featured, as its Act One set-piece, a tour of the orbital "Space Dock" where the new NCC-1701 refit was just being completed. Participating in the construction were swarms of "Work Bees," tiny one-man spacepods that could be used for short-range transport. The "Dual Workbee" used robotic arms to grab, hold and otherwise manipulate construction materials. The craft was designed by "Star Trek" conceptual artist Andrew Probert.
About the Kit
This solid, all-resin 1/48-scale kit was released in 2003 by ACEng, a garage-kit company. It featured internal magnets that allowed one to easily attach or remove the armature.
This model was built from an original issue.
