The K7 is on the central core cone with windows throughout.

*sigh*
when bond writes "main structure" and "than what the illustration seems to show" he's not referring to the K7 on the cone which the aforementioned illustration and the links obviously show but the saucer where there's clearly only "federation blah, blah, blah" on the links but not on the illustration

ya, I know that. I'm saying the release dates are a little un-specific. Probably due to one of the reasons listed before.

BUT, the mk.II Viper should have already hit the shelves by now given Moebius' assertion that it was to be released Jan '10 and here it's the end of Feb.

Actually with the ribs on the main structure it probably doesn't make sense to try and duplicate the UFP markings--I wonder if that was ever on the original miniature anyway since none of edge-on camera angles could have shown that.

I also wonder if you could replace any of the disc modules with hulls from the Pegasus UFO kits...

I assume you've all seen, or remember "The IDIC Page". They had some great shots of Greg Jein's station model, made for the DS-9 series. In know the IDIC site is gone now, but the WayBack Machine, still has it in the archive.

Also, dig around on the Drex Files. Doug Drexler has some wonderful images.

Thanks for the cool links! Yes indeed...I hope some research went into the D-7 kit if not better fit etc. A better Enterprise would be great too.

I never had this kit so I'm looking forward to it.

The worst part of the kit was the linkage between the three pylons--it'll be a miracle if they fix that but it really makes the kit structurally weak.

OK - well I'm almost finished my Vulcan Shuttle! Just got the Enterprise 1000. So I'm going to work on that one and also my K-7. Now do I put K-7 on the main cone like it is in the picture? Just wondering! I also wonder how different will the new Round 2 be from my original?

Looking at R2s web site page for the K-7 the only 'upgrade' to this kit is an all new decal sheet.
