Round 2 had the Runabout model built up by Jim Small of Small Art Works for WonderFest 2018, and it was on display there:



It does not appear as if Round 2 will do much with this kit for the re-release other than new box art and possibly an updated decal sheet.

There are no formal announcements yet, but I believe the kit number this time around will be AMT1084 and it is scheduled to be released by the end of this year or the beginning of next.

I'm looking forward to trying the runabout again. My recollection is that it's a pretty decent kit... and that they used them on the show for pyrotechnic explosions of the runabouts rather than running a thin shell off the mold for the filming model.

Bummer about the interior though.

There is a resin kit interior available and I have used it on my first Runabout (can't mind where I got it though but it could have been Federation Models). Added a lot of interior detail but was a bit pricey I thought. I have another Runabout hidden in "The Stash" for a future auction build but I don't think I'll get the interior kit but just use some Tamiya smoke for the windows.
