    I'm hope it wll come with full interior but what I am really hoping that it is 1/32 so that it can really fit two of the Moebius sized mk2 viper pilots in it
    As I thought 1/32 resin Raptor had crew figures that looked 1/48 scale and still looked a little tight IMO

    Do you have any insider info Wolvster1? I'm just curious. I'm looking forward to picking up a kit of two.

    Just to be clear - Wolvster has all galactica insider knowledge - and shares none of it - and rightfully so :D

    I wouldn't say I have " all " the BSG info, just most... :ninja

    Honestly, if you chatted with Frank you would know it's been pushed back
    to the BEGINNING of 2016. It's still on the " to do " list, but most
    definitely NOT for this year. OTHER projects are bumped UP ! ;)

    It's alright. I am patient, I can wait. The main thing is that it IS coming. :)

    Of course, remember that the ONLY version their going to sell is
    the " RECON " version of the RAPTOR. If you want others head
    on over to the BAD AZZ page for more options and IMMEDIATE
    availability... :thumbsup

    Including the WILD WEASEL varient from Blood & Chrome...

    COOL! The Recon version has so much potential. You could build a whole fleet with different paint schemes and detail. It is the best and most versatile design of TNS (aside from the gorgeous Colonial One); wish they had it in TOS. :)

    Wolvster1 : I'd LOOOOVE to see a large-scale Rising Star model... Would it be possible for you to pitch that idea to Frank, please? :)

    Can't get into what they ARE doing but I can say that NOPE, no Rising Star
    is in the plans I'm afraid.. MORE BSG kit's are of course, their just trying to
    decide which ones they want and what order... :)

    Well, no RS... :( ... But more BSG? Hmm... There are sooo few craft in that show... :D Anyway, the Cylon front has been neglected a bit. If I would go for something more "prominent" I would tackle a base star. Or a Razor Raider. Just thinking out loud..! ;)

    I was thinking "More Battlestar Galactics" and shortened it to "More BS" but decided that didn't read too well.

    Very exciting news. Please let us know when you can do so, Wolvster1.

    Moebius has such a big place in my heart; I am sure that whatever is to come next it will be overwhelming and truly worth the wait. :)

    Unfortunately you might as well FORGET about anything CYLON comming
    out any time soon.. :(

    I personally LOVE the " bad guy " ships, but one of the VERY old adages
    of Sci-Fi modeling that has lasted forever is the simple GOOD GUYS ships will ALWAYS outsell
    BAD GUYS ships so those are what model companies stick too !

    So, no new Raiders, NO Basestar I'm afraid...

    Honestly, as much as I LOVE all the bad guys ships I would have to
    agree with thier decisions if I ran those Companies. You HAVE to go
    to what will sell and make money !

    {{ ON a side note, it's also sadly why we will NEVER see a 350 K' Tinga
    from Trek ! It's sales would NEVER-EVER come close to the REFIT ! }}

    :cry

    So if no Cylon stuff, then what else is there to release beyond the Raptor?

    ... the Berzerk Battlestar - or a shuttle? ;)

    Berzerker might be cool but would think a basestar from either series would be more recognizable. Anywho... Looking forward to the raptor when it comes out.

    I'm sure the Raptor will be a huge hit because you can do so much with it.

    Pre-Order" not sure what this term means anymore.

    I just got my kit from Culttvman. Surprised no one has mentioned the kit is finally available.

    Looks nice so far. I've only had time to look at the instructions. Cannot wait to build it and display it next to my other Moebius Vipers.

    Any thoughts on the base color???

    There a couple of significant deficiencies with the kit. I believe that the released kit is pretty much the test kit without any changes. There are no grilles for the outboard structure on the tail booms and for the scoop near the front of the 'wing'.

    The pilots are undersized and lack the detail available on the Viper pilot figures.

    There have also been issues with the canopy fit.

    The third picture looks a bit ropey.
    Maybe I need help.....:)

    The detail in general looks pretty soft.
