  Designed for the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D by Hero Collector

500 lifeboat hatches (numbered 001 through to 500) designed to faithfully reproduce those of the original six-foot studio model produced by ILM – available as pre-cut vinyl stickers or premium rub-on transfers.

Using detailed blueprints and hundreds of close-up reference photos to ensure maximum accuracy, these sets add essential detail missing from the standard lifeboat hatches, also known as escape pods.

Easy to apply and hugely transformative, they immediately give the already impressive two-foot long U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D model by Hero Collector added realism and authenticity.

With over 430 hatches across the starship, the hatch covers are numerous and very prominent, so more than ever the small details really matter.

500 hatches are provided within these sets, so plenty of spares for any slip-ups or future repairs.

These updated designs also correct the upside down print on the standard hatches. The red line you see printed on the standard parts is the underline of the U.S.S. Enterprise logo, and should be at the top, not the bottom.

Whilst the ILM studio model only had six unique hatch numbers repeated across the model, these designs are numbered sequentially from 001 to 500 to give each of your lifeboat hatches a unique number – just how you would expect them to be in real life.

Rub-on Transfers vs Vinyl Stickers – What's the difference?

If you’re not already familiar with my rub-on transfer sets, they use specialised dry inks with a self-adhesive backing, which when rubbed over with a pencil, transfer the designs directly to the surface of your model. No soaking, no residue, and no edges. Just a clean design transferred directly to your model.

Because of the specialised process, rub-on transfers are considerably more technical, time-consuming and expensive to produce compared to stickers, but the difference in price is reflected in the finish and print quality.

Depending on the model and application, they generally look much more realistic and impressive when applied, designed to look like they were originally printed on the model parts.

Rub-on transfers are easy to apply and have a much higher clarity print than stickers. They also have the advantage of not having any raised edges.

Whilst my vinyl sticker sets are of course still printed in high resolution and to a very high standard, if you’re looking for the ultimate upgrade for your model – rub-on transfers are the way to go!

All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.
