First pic of the Moebius TOS G

For those interested, here is the first photo I could find of the Moebius G prototype (at WonderFest 2013) for release next year.

Needless to say, I'm ecstatic. It looks REALLY good!

Re: First pic of the Moebius TOS G

I know it's been a while since I last posted here, but apparently a new close-up pic has surfaced of the TOS-G "alligator head" on Moebius' FaceBook page. While I think the surface etching is a little stark, it still appears highly accurate and lovingly made. The 35 year wait is almost over...

It could just be the harsh light. A little paint and more diffuse light and it'll be great.

Long live TOS!

New update: New pics of the finished model.

Aside from the heavily inscribed hull lines (which look to be in the final production version), this thing is positively beautiful! Well worth the wait.

More pics! This kit continues to amaze!

The stand concerns me - while I love the design on it, it seems awfully small to support something with such a high center of gravity. It doesn't look like it would take much to knock the model over along the long axis, in either direction. I think I'll have to get one of those wider wooden bases from Michael's or something to shore up the support, as I do want to keep the base design.

The grid lines seem palatable, once painted in a common color, however, provided they're not over-weathered. A welcome realization.
