UPDATE: The writer of CultTVMan has expressed irritation at my sharing his images without seeking his permission before hand, so I have removed them at his request. If you would like to see the latest Round 2 Models please see his articles with photos of the ships which were on display, and a separate article with the bridge model kit.
My summary of the model kits on display, as reported by CultTVMan:
- Polar Lights 1:1000 scale USS Reliant.
- Coming some time next year, this new kit will be the third version of the Reliant in Round 2's range, joining the larger AMT 1:650 model, and the smaller 1:2500 Cadet Series version. The appeal of this size is presumably that it will be to scale with several other Polar Lights kits, including the refit USS Enterprise. Plans for this model were on display.
- Polar Lights 1:32 scale Shuttlecraft Galileo.
- This set has been delayed, until at least late 2014, maybe even later. There were plans on display for this kit too.
- Polar Lights 1:1000 scale NX-01 refit.
- The first built model of this kit was on display, a re-issue of the existing 1:1000 scale NX-01, with additional parts to build it as the refit design.
- Polar Lights 1:1000 scale NCC-1701, Space Seed edition.
- Re-issue of the 1:1000 USS Enterprise with an additional new SS Botany Bay kit. The first look at a build of this kit was also on display.
- AMT USS Enterprise bridge.
- Re-issue of the AMT USS Enterprise bridge kit was also exhibited. This version of the bridge kit has additional components and characters, allowing you to build a complete, fully enclosed, bridge, unlike the original release.
Meanwhile, if you don't like building your models, Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection has been posting images of more of their ships on their Facebook page. Here are their USS Excelsior, and (out of focus) Borg Sphere:
UPDATE: A bit more news from the Starships Collection, they have announced they will be launching in Canada as well as the US, UK, and Ireland. They are looking to launch in other parts of Europe and Australia some time next year.
