Round 2 has announced they will be producing a series of model kits under their Polar Lights brand, based on Star Trek: Discovery. The company first revealed the news at the Wonderfest modeling show over the weekend in Louisville, KY.
According to Round 2, the company is planning an initial release of a 1:2500 scale model of the title ship, the U.S.S. Discovery. At 1:2500 scale, the model will measure nearly 12” long. The 1:2500 U.S.S. Discovery should be available in early 2019, with exact timing and price to be set at a later date.
The company tells TrekMovie they are planning on two additional Discovery model releases to come later in 2019. Round 2’s development team is still considering which ships to make for subsequent releases and was polling show attendees for feedback. 1:2500 scale kits of the U.S.S. Shenzou and U.S.S. Enterprise as featured in the show are being considered as are larger format models at either 1:1000 (29.5” Discovery length) or 1:1400 (21.1” Discovery length) scale.
Round 2 also displayed their current and upcoming Star Trek kit releases, including a new prototype of their highly anticipated Polar Lights 1:350 scale Klingon K’t’inga.
