AW Studios- 1/350 TOS Constitution- New Pics Added

AW Studios is excited and pleased to announce that we have recently purchased the "Master Parts" of the 1/350th TOS Constitution/Sinclair model kit originally being produced by Composite Creations. We have received the main ship parts (Engineering, saucer, nacelles, B/C deck) as well as parts for the detail pieces. Our sincerest appreciation goes out to Joe Melvin for handcrafting these great parts. We still consulting with CC in order to on perfect these parts to get them right.

Currently we have done several vacuformed test pulls using .060 and .080 styrene with very exciting results. We are in the process of making some slight modifications to the main hull sections as well as fabricating the remaining detail pieces that will be cast in resin. Our main fabricator is working extremely hard to create acurate detail pieces and continue to hold true the original intention for producing this kit for Star Trek model fans.

This model kit, when completed will be a combination of vacuformed styrene and resin detail parts as well as decal sheets. The styrene will be both .060 and .080 and believe me it is almost as sturdy as the PL Refit injection molded parts. You will also be able to light this model utilizing tubing that will be cast into the pylons.

AW Studios is GK company comprised of three model/prop fans (myself- Scott, AWHotshot- Rhett, and Crashmann- Charlie) such as yourselves. As some of you may know, AW Studios is curently working on several Star Trek, Star Wars, and other Sci-Fi related model kits (1/350- Constellation, 1/350th- Miranda, 1/350th Dreadnought Conversion, Sebulba Podracer, Red October) as well as our current product line of Ghostbuster Props. We hope to have some of these going into production by April and May (after Crashmann recovers from having his 3rd child).

Within the next few weeks I will be posting the pictures of what we currently have produced with the current TOS parts and pictures of the additional detailed parts that will be cast in resin. Our ultimate goal is to provide you all with a reasonably affordable TOS model kit that is accurate, lightable, and fun to work with. The kit will be available directly through us via Paypal payment. When we are ready to start producing the kit we will start an "Official" Interest thread, but you are more than welcome to e-mail us at awstudios@verizon.net or PM me through PM here or Starship Modeler.

Stay tuned for more exciting news from AW Studios!

Scott, Rhett, and Charlie

Glad to hear the official announcement, Scott.

I think I've asked you this before, but are y'all planning to be at WonderFest? If so, will you have a table in the Dealers Room?

Regardless, looking forward to your complete line of kits.

Scott-

WOW. I had no idea you were making such amazing progress as well as the variety of kits. When do you guys have time to breathe? I suppose you're bringing some of these goodies to Farpoint for show and tell?

BTW, I know we've been playing phone tag lately. I got your voicemail about Farpoint. I'll likely call you over the coming weekend.

I've been told, but will let Scott answer that question since things might change between now and the next time he pokes his head in here.
