Today Round 2 Models announced their plan to produce a 1:350 scale Klingon K’t’inga model kit based on the iconic ship first seen in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The gorgeous detail seen in the impressive close up shots of the Klignon cruisers of TMP (and later The Undiscovered Country) has long been something modelers have wanted to have in a replica.
The ship will be offered under the Polar Lights brand which has previously offered the classic U.S.S. Enterprise and U.S.S. Enterprise Refit kits in the same scale. At 1:350 scale, the K’t’inga model kit will measure 24” long. The large format allows the plastic injection molded kit to maintain details that can’t be achieved in smaller scales. CAD work for the kit is being supplied by professional model builder Charles Adams.
The kit is model number: POL950/06, and will carry a suggested retail price of $99.99, it is due for release in September, 2018. A light kit will also be offered. The kit will be added to Round 2’s model kit price list to be released March 9, 2018, and will be available for pre-order from retailers soon after that. Pricing and availability for the light kit has not been finalized.
