Hi, Everyone.

Looks like Round 2 will come out with one more Star Trek kit during the 50th anniversary year.  This will be the 1:2500 U.S.S. Enterprise Box Set.  It will include all the previously-available 1:2500 Enterprise starships, but this time around there will be a new 1:2500 NX-01.

Here is the information presentation card about it at WonderFest 2016:



It seems that for this kit, pressure sensitive (dry-transfer?) decals will be included instead of water-slide decals.

Stay tuned!

:)

Hi, Everyone!

Round 2 recently updated their blog site to include updated information on their upcoming 1:2500 U.S.S. Enterprise Model Set (kit number AMT954).  It will feature:

  • Seven complete Enterprise kits, each one molded in its appropriate base color
  • NX-01 in 1:2500 for the first time
  • Complete water-slide decal sheets that cover each model
  • Display stands for each model

Look for this model box set to show up at retailers around April / May 2017.

Here is the link to Round 2's blog post: http://www.collectormodel.com/round2-models/3535-star-trek-model-kits-12500-scale-enterprise-box-set/


 

Stay tuned for more...

:)

What I like about this kit is for the first time (as far as I know of) you can see all the ships in scale to each other.  It's pretty cool being able to see the ships in scale.

It would have been really cool to see the JJ Enterprise as well.  From what I read that thing is supposed to be HUGE!  As in around the size of the Enterprise D.  Why Abrams decided to make it that big is beyond me, but then again I'm not really a big fan of what he did to the franchise.

Dang, already built all of these except the NX-01 once or twice.  Any idea if the NX-01 will show up as a solo purchase or in some combo-kit that's more in the neighborhood of $25-$30 range?

Cheers!

Round 2 says there is a possibility that the 1:2500 NX-01 might one day be broken out from this big box set into a new two- or three-ship Cadet Series kit.

That's about all they have to stay on that subject for now.

Except it's not all of them, the Enterprise-A is missing with just the 1701 refit in it's place for some reason.

I can see Ralph/Tena Controls champin' at the bit for a board to encompass these kits.

Hi, Everyone!

Here's another promotional image of all the ships built up:
