Round 2 products for spring/summer 2015 have been successfully previewed, so I'll mark them as complete. AST might miss a few slated for fall/winter due to the "changing of the guard" (more on that later), but we'll see.

Unfortunately, Kratok can no longer treat us with further reviewing goodness as work is keeping him busy. I'd like to take the opportunity to publicly thank Kratok for all his hard work on each preview and hope he makes his way back to AST (as a regular contributor) soon.

After a quick chat (because I'm not around that much these days) Moongrim has agreed to take over as lead previewer. I can't speak for other folks, but I've always enjoyed his build threads and believe he has the right "tools" for the job.

I have other members in mind that would also be a good fit for the role, but with my health issues, time flying by (and trying to make sure it works for R2), it's been a bit of a mad scramble.

All that being said. I aspire to humility. I hope I can live up to the level of quality that Kratok established.

I've seen your build albums, Moongrim. You'll do well with these previews. I'm looking forward to the Excelsior one you'll inevitably be making.

Oh that's right. That's supposed to be coming out...I guess I better not modify it into a Raging Queen then...

The majority of R2's Trek products for 2016 are "classified", which means I can't do my usual list of upcoming products beyond the next 2-3 kits. I think most folks know what they are, but for the record: 50th Anniversary 18" Enterprise, Klingon Bird of Prey and Excelsior.

I will reveal more, as of when I have the information / am allowed to share with the masses.

Expect...the unexpected next year. :)
