Thanks for posting that. Good to know the kit spine rod will be two pieces; I'll make a note to pick up a 3' rod to replace it when I buy the kit.  ;D

I am super excited for the Discovery One model. That thing is going to take up a bunch of display space!

It is kind of a shame that it does not include a cockpit or launch bay interior, but I wonder how hard it would be to fashion a custom interior for the cockpit at least? I think a lot of us will be adding a few of these various 2001 models to our stash's.

Hi, Everyone!

Moebius released some new images of their upcoming 1:144 2001: A Space Odyssey Discovery model (kit number MMK2001-3).

Check out the pictures below!

Again, this one will be 41-inches long, and the kit will have over 500 parts.  MSRP is $199.95 U.S.D..  It will hopefully begin shipping within the next two months.

Stay tuned...

:)

I saw the Discovery in-person at the Tokyo Hobby Show at the end of September. It is a very long kit! Fortunately, the modules that comprise much of its length are just repeated, so it reduced tooling costs.
