Artist Warren Zoell comprised this fantastic list of upcoming kits… two of which are more significant in my eye… and some of yours I am sure!
The first notable kit for me off this list was a surprising scale.
Revell – 1:30 (over 16 inches long!) X-Wing Fighter
06690 X-wing Fighter
|No. of parts||62|
|Number of figures||1|
The name X-Wing Fighter is derived from its superimposed double wings that form a lying X in combat configuration in order to increase its area of fire. The wings can be extended during combat or upon entry into a planet’s atmosphere. High Energy Laser Cannon can be found on the wing-tips. The X-Wing Fighter soon proved itself to be one of the most effective ships in the Galaxy and quickly became the standard fighter in the Rebel Alliance.
Length about 41 cm, 1 pilot figure. Can be built with landing skids either deployed or retracted.
The second is one we all assumed would be released in 1:2500 eventually by Round 2. Looks like Revell called the ball instead! This release coincides with the new Star Trek film release… Into Darkness!
Revell 1:500 (Over 23 inches long!)
04882 U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 (movie 12)
|No. of parts||62|
In 2009 the meanwhile 11th Star Trek Movie arrived in the cinemas. So much from the past has changed in the course of its journey through time that a new time-line has been created and thus interactions with films from the 60’s and later are no longer relevant. The new film called “Into Darkness” continues the plot from the 11th film. The main protagonists in the film, which is set around the year 2255 are as usual the young James T. Kirk, Mr Spock as well as Pill & Co. Supporting actors, especially Uhura and Chekov play a much larger part.
And of course the remaining list (which doesn’t reflect everything out there), but looks pretty exciting! Keep in mind that the GK industry is NOT included, but of which does have some amazing new studio scale and other scaled kits being released this year under different kit maker names!
