Moebius Models USS Franklin model kit box art and images

Moebius Models have been at work on a new range of Star Trek model kits of ships from the Kelvin timeline movies, and the first of those, the USS Franklin, just got a bit closer. Starship Modeller and Big Bad Toy Store have released several images of the Franklin kit, which BBTS expect to arrive in the second quarter of this year.


The new box art was made by none other than Star Trek production artist John Eaves, and looks great! The 1:350 scale kit will be 15 inches long and almost 9 inches wide. There are several images also freshly released, although I can't tell if these are of an actual built kit, or just illustrations:






When Moebius first announced they were working on this range a couple of years ago, they were planning quite a few ships; both versions of the Enterprise, the Kelvin, and Jellyfish. I imagine the eventual extent of the range will rest on how this first kit does.
