Recommendations for collector quality Star Trek Enterprise or Tardis


My brother's birthday is coming up soon and he is a big Dr. Who and Star Trek fan (both TOS and TNG).

I'd like to get him a nice collectible...either an Enterprise or TARDIS (Enterprise from TOS or TNG...for TOS willing to go up to and including the second movie).

I do not want a chintzy, plastic toy. I am looking for a high quality item of decent size for display purposes.

I have done a Google search but it is hard to tell just what you are really getting and the quality from a picture so I turn to those here for help and advice.

For this assume price is not important (it is but I want to see my options unhindered by cost concerns).

Thanks in advance!

(Also, I am not a good model builder...mainly I am a horrible painter of models so building/painting my own is not really an option)

Sorry for the title...I know "Tardis" is really "TARDIS."

I got this die-cast USS Enterprise model a few years ago, and like it a lot. Small but nicely detailed: https://www.militaryissue.com/USS-En...tinfo/0097657/

Eaglemoss has some nice miniatures. A combination of diecast and plastic.

You can always order a full-scale TARDIS replica.
