Exclamation 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!

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...

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.

I'm saving for a 37" Galactica.
Much easier to light.

That ship is gorgeous. of course with Galactica, bigger is always better. i've actually come to the forum looking for a highly detailed CGI mesh of the big G - does anyone have a recommendation of which one is best?

There have been a couple under construction in other threads here that appear to be extremely accurate - the best I've seen anywhere. As far as I know, neither are complete, unfortunately, and very little activity appears to have been done on either for about a year.

The threads:

Thanks for the reply, Gebrig.
I was hoping at least one of those would be complete. Hopefully that will happen soon!

Best Regards
