The Keppler Class Transport Tug is an updated version of the Ptolemy Class Transport Tug, but shares quite a few parts. This kit includes updated warp nacelles as seen on the Endeavor Class Heavy Cruiser. Otherwise the kit is basically the same as the Ptolemy Class kit, also by McDaniel’s Models.

The McDaniel’s Models kit is a mixture of vacuform and resin parts. Vacuform parts are provided for: the upper and lower primary hull, four (4) warp nacelle pylon halves, four (4) warp nacelle halves, the container mount, and a sheet of styrene.

The resin parts include: navigational deflector, warp nacelle front caps (2), front cap mounts (2), warp nacelle end caps (2), end cap mounts (2), bridge cap, planetary sensor dome, warp engine intercoolers (2), the “rib” on the top of the primary hull running back to the impulse deck, container mount, and the impulse engine deck. The parts are cast in beige resin and appear to be mostly free of flash.

A detailed 4-page instruction sheet is provided. Also provided is a 2-page model instruction sheet with information about how to build vacuform kits.

The completed kit is in scale with the AMT/Ertl TOS Enterprise kit and measures about 12 inches long.
