Possible 2500 Projects from Round 2

Postby Scotchyn » Tue Jun 02, 2015 4:52 am

While their was not an official announcement of anything new Trek wise from R2 this year, they have given us some hints about what they are thinking about for future releases.
On Sunday, R2 had a survey available so we could 'vote" on what some future projects might be.
For us 2500 folks the list was predictable except for one particular set

Akira Class(released as a single kit)
Excel, KBOP, and Oberth
and
NX-01, Voyager, and Constellation(yes the Stargazer)

so let R2 know what you think, shoot them an email and let them know what you would like to possible see next

One last thing, also mentioned was a Galaxy Dreadnaught(All Good Things) and a Nebula. No scale was mentioned, but it was lumped together w/the 1/1000 choices, so their ya go

Interested in the KBOP if it's in 1/2500 scale and not just a repop.

it would be new...Angelo Bastanelli(sp) has been doing a lot of work for them, he was the designer of the Gizmotron line of models, so he already has the files digi files done as he did one several years ago

Were was I when this announcements was made?? Man, any and all of these choices in 2500 would be a treat, even if I already have some of these in resin.

Not to jinx things or anything, but if R2 has thrown it out there that they're considering the Excelsior Class, KBOP and Oberth as a new Cadet offering, the chances are really good that it's going to happen eventually.

Finally, it would be weird for R2 to announce a 1000 AGT Galaxy or a Nebula when there is no standard Galaxy Class kit in that scale. Read into that what you will.

Here is the message I sent to Round 2:
I am given to understand that R2 is thinking of creating: Constellation(Stargazer),
FJ Scout/Destroyer,
Battle Damaged Refit,w/Drydock,
Enterprise D in 1:1000,
K'Tinga in 1:350, Defiant, Voyager, Grissom/KBOP 2 pack. etc, The Nebula Class. I'd thought I'd let you know, that even at 51 years of age I still spend way too much money on this, and I plan to continue doing so until I die.
Which is why Federation Models amongst other garage kit manufacturers of Star Trek ships- get so much of my money.
Just saying...

The other thing that's interesting to me is that they're dangling a 2500 Cadet version of the KBOP when they already have a KBOP out as part of the repopped Adversary Set. They're obviously not afraid about cannibalizing their own sales. Would that mean they would entertain offering a properly sized 2500 scale Ferengi D'Kora? Probably not but one could always hope/dream

Yes, they do have one, but the KBoP in the Adversary set is 1:1400 scale, according to the box. It's 3.25 inches long, which is way too big for the Sacred Scale.

The Gizmotron kit of the Early Bird of Prey is only 1.5 inches long. I think I have couple of TMP-era BoPs as well, and they're about the same size.

I would love to see the Excelsior/KBoP/Grissom set. While I would like to see both the NX-01 and Voyager done - they are both series hero ships, putting them together and adding the Stargazer just seems to be an odd combination.

Another one I would suggest would be a Klingon set, add the Qo'nos One (K'tinga with new decals) the KBoP and Vor'cha.

Did it? I'll have to go back and check. I'm not doubting you. It's just that I thought R2 was trying to pass this set (KBOP and Marauder) off as 2500
