New NX-01 views

A few weeks ago Round 2 Models revealed they will be re-issuing their 1:350 and 1:1000 scale NX-01 model kits, the latter with additional parts to build the NX-01 refit, as seen in Ships of the Line 2011. They also announced Doug Drexler would be generating the artwork for the boxes, and now Drexler has been showing off his creation for the 1:350 kit on Facebook:


Drexler noted when posting the image that he hopes this view will be a useful guide to builders:
I don't know about you, but I think the box art for a model should be great reference for your build. I love paintings for kit boxes, but in this case a render of the real thing is better.
This is what it will look like on the box - This is the print layout, so the additional images around the sides will be on the sides of the box when it's constructed:


Drexler hasn't revealed his artwork for the refit box yet, but he did post this additional rendering showing the refit NX-01 alongside the Columbia NX-02:
