What size model does it work out to in 1:350?

The Franklin is supposed to be 450ft long. At 1:350, that works out to 15.36 inches or 39 cm.

Since the Franklin will be a scale of 350 does this mean they'll do the Enterprise in 350 as well??

No way. It would be 6.8 feet long. 1/1000 is more likely. That would be 2.4 ft.

Based on the length given on the first jjTrek movie, around 2379 ft, I highly doubt the Moebius version will be 1/350!

Any new packaging announcements from Round 2? Where's my Exploration Set in a metal tin?

Oh, BURN!

(I mean, maybe you're semi-serious because memories of youth and all that jazz and if so I mean no disrespect, but I'm guessing more it's a commentary)

Don't think we'll be hearing much Star Trek from R2 for the near future. After all, the 50th anniversary is over and done, why bother now?

This thread is about the Moebius new kit announcements not what Round 2 is doing. It's no wonder manufacturers are hesitant to give out info.

It's not unrealistic to think maybe there's a chance that Moebius and Round 2 might co-operate on a similar license. It's also not unrealistic to think if someone saw Moebius announcements at a show that maybe Round 2 also pulled a stealth surprise, something out that was heretofore unknown.

I am hard pressed to see how this equals that "it's no wonder..." line.

Just my opinion - if you want to start another thread about Round 2 kits do it. This thread was started to discuss the new Moebius kits.

The interesting thing about Moebius' Trek license... it authorizes them to recreate any spaceship depicted in the Abrams Trek universe -- including those appearing in the Kobayashi Maru simulation from 2008.

Which means Moebius has the rights to make a 1:350 scale K'Tinga.
