    Very cool. Very iconic ship.

    But I would jump on a Moebius version of the Leonov from 2010.

    Exciting news. On another topic, for a moment I thought that was Adam Savage being interviewed! Albeit with a bit of extra weight though...

    Do want!

    But would substitute composite (carbon fiber?) support rod for the heavy steel one if applicable.

    I might have missed it, but I didn't hear mention of an EVA Pod included. Perhaps a simple interior for the flight deck and EVA pod area?

    I'm sure the Discovery will have the greatest aftermarket accessories in the history of the world.

    I don't know how Robn1 feels about this, but what if we used this thread to start pooling images and info on paint details and other research on the studio original so we're ready when the Moebius kit hits the streets? I know I'll want to hit the ground running on this one.

    I recognize this image, it's of the USS Discovery studio model built for 2010. The one major alteration made to the Discovery was the location of emergency airlock , in the original film the airlock was 60 degrees off the main axis, it was moved to 90 degrees to accommodate the docking with the Leonov in the film. It is still useful as reference.

    Captain April, that is most certainly not the Discovery built for 2010. Notice the tubing coming out of the rearmost plate before the spine. That "cage" was built into the 2001 miniature and removed before filming--a last minute change. There would have been no reason to duplicate that unseen feature on the 2010 miniature.
