A few years ago, I purchased two AMT\ERTL plastic model kits, 1701-A, & 1701-D. Inside the boxes were 17x24 prints of these two ships. Each has several interior view drawings, and various other highlights, (teleporter, Jeffries tubes, crew quarters, etc.), and a very good drawing of each of the Captains.

My ‘question of the day’ is; how many of these prints were made, how many were embossed, etc.

Thanks in advance for any/all of the info you can supply me with in regards to the above.

As you said they came with the models so I assume there were quite a few, I even had those one time but they are long gone now. I imagine as in my case lots have been lost over the years but on that same token I don't think they are some lost treasure worth much either. You should put them in a  frame and know you have something moderately interesting to look at.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?

As far as I’ve been able to find out, AMT/Ertl issued this particular series, sometime after the TNG TV series finished its run.


The problem that I keep running into is that AMT/Ertl sold off its model division, and nobody seems to have any records, or knowledge of what/how much they sold\produced.


As for being 'something moderately interesting to look at', I couldn't disagree more!

Here I Found this on Memory Alpha.


 


"On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary AMT/Ertl commissioned the production of two cutaway posters of the USS Enterprise-A and USS Enterprise-D and inserted those in their 1995-1996 model kit issues as a bonus. Which one was included was indicated by a sticker on the packaging. The artwork was done by C. Bruce Morser."


 


It is near the bottom of the following link. If you've never been there Memory Alpha is a pretty good resource.

Don't thank me, thank Memory Alpha I just looked there when I remembered they had some info about some of the Hamilton plate collections another person was asking about in here awhile back. As for numbers I imagine since the run was only for a one year period that it would only number in like the thousands but that is just a guess of course.
