    And this is why a thread like this is needed!

    Do we know for sure whether or not there will be interiors in the Moebius kit? Even if they don't do the pod bay with pods, I assume they'll need to have a cockpit since it can be seen through the windows.

    Yep, pics is from the 55 footer Discovery from 2001, not from 2010...maybe a cockpit would be easier to do than the deck with the EVA Pods. Then again, the original had a picture of the set and used as a background in the model (as well as cut-out of EVA Pod miniatures placed strategically on that deck) Don't forget that a lot of the special effects on 2001 were just cut-out pics of the models affixed to a glass pane.

    Easy to light (no twinkling, strobing flashing, spinning lights), easy to paint (white, no aztek, little if any paneling), I like it already!

    There's actually quite a lot of paneling on the command module...I would like to see some masking sets produced.

    I stand corrected, I just looked though Piers Bizony's "2001 filming the future" book , this photo is on page 103 along with a front view of the model.

    On a slightly related note, I watched 2001 with my daughter a few years ago and walked her through the film's symbolism as we watched so she'd have an appreciation for it rather than a "this is so boring" reaction. Surprisingly, she got really into it and by the time the film got to the Discovery section, she had totally picked up on the evolution of humanity themes. Then when Discovery arrives at Jupiter, she blurted out, "Oh, so Jupiter is the egg and the spaceship is a sperm and the astronaut becomes the new baby!" Now that I will have the "space sperm" on display in our family room, it will be a constant reminder of one of my better parenting moments!

    I like the look of that model, but I bet the AE35 unit 100% fails within 72 hours.

    Xolin, I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.

    Anyway, time to start saving!

    Preorder up at Cultman.

    Preorder breaks down to 30 cents per part. ;-) much better than that crazy 40 cents per retail part price.

    Assuming I won't go whole hog and add a pod and pod bay, I'm looking at $150 for the model, another $20 for shipping, $50 (or so) for inevitable photoetch add-ons, $20 for simple LED interior lighting and scratch building materials for cockpit. Paint, glue, etc. So about $300 give or take for a nice basic Discovery with a lit interior. Yup. I'm in.

    Just think of all the possible 3D printed accessories that could be made for this, based on what the kit may or may not come with....Calling TonyRR......

    I wonder if we will see a completed prototype at WonderFest in June?

    I've preordered mine from culttvman. Really looking forward to this kit.

    I've recently built my Orion kit, and I'm working on my Moon Bus kit right now. And as it turns out, it looks like they're re-releasing both of those soon.

    There is a light kit for this Model at Monsters in Motion, do you guys know if Stargazer or someone else is doing a "Flightdeck +Podbay" kit for this model?

    Apparently the Discovery kit should be shipping on the 15th December

    Hi Guys

    There are Two Photoetch Kits coming for the Moebius 1/144 Discovery kit.
    Found both at Monsters in Motion

    2001: A Space Odyssey Discovery 1:144 Scale Cockpit and Airlock Photoetch Detail Set for Moebius Model Kit

    Both are due to be released the 5th of January 2018.
    There are no pics showing the finished build up but I guess it has the standard high level quality of Paragrafix.

    And there is a Accessory Detail Kit as well.
    "The kit consists of clear engine replacement parts, 1 clear EVA pod (so it can be lit), and a bonus interior graphics set for the Pod Bay and Flight deck. It was developed in conjunction with and accompanies Randy Neubert's VooDooFX Discovery One"

    Not sure myself if I should wait for the complete Resin Kit from Stargazer or go for these ones?...I guess I will wait this one out until I have seen some reviews.
