Colonial One is a great design and would make an awesome kit. Any final word on the old lady herself, Galactica? What would really be nice would be if someone made after market, in scale resin ships in the fleet that could be displayed along with it.
I don't believe that the Kazon Torpedo has anything to do with Battlestar Galactica, (kazon torpedo is more likely from ST Voyager) and the guy who suggested producing it probably works (or worked) for Revell not Moebius Models!
Stay tuned for anouncements of future kits at I-Hobby in October....we may have some more BSG news then....
Monogram got the Voyager license in the 1st season, and was thus limited in their choices to ships that had already appeared by then. They decided to produce 5 (?) kits, and they were limited to ONLY ships that appeared on Voyager, no other Trek shows. Hence the very slim (and ultimately stupid) selection. They shot their wad on 1st season ships and decided, after poor sales, that there was no market for any more, and dropped the series.
Did Moebius get just the new battlestar license, or also the old series as well?
My first choice of kit would be the galactica itself (old or new), and then the viper and cylon ships dogfight ships. IF those sales warranted it, then other ships, but like the older releases, the two main capital ships and the two main fighters make the most marketing sense, IMHO.
I wouldn't object to a BIG Galactica and moebius could use the same tech to later producs a smaller one, like the smaller seaview.
I actually wrote a letter to Monogram asking them why they didn't do other ships like some of the cool shuttles, and they said "another company" had the rights to those vehicles. Apparently, they couldn't do them because AMT (what other company could it be) had an agreement than included the shuttles....
