Post New Star Trek plastic model kits

I know that the older model kits were usually done by AMT, then some huge kits of the Enterprise refit and the NX-01 by Polar Lights. Does anyone know what company will be handling the model kits for the new Trek, if any??? Thanks.

Not sure, but as Lt. DeSalle would say, I'll bet you credits to navy beans there'll be a model kit...

I'll buy.

I have model kits from both AMT and Polar Lights and they're both decent kits so I don't mind either way. I'm gonna buy them too.

I would love to see Fine Models (the Japanese firm) to get the contract. They did wonders with the Star Wars models.

What makes you say this? One of the big manufacturers will release a kit followed by loads of garage models. You obviously do not know much about the hobby.

Kids these days.

Used to be I'd sit at the table all day painting every little detail and putting a model together. Gave you a sense of accomplishment when you were done. You had to work for it, but if you worked hard at it, you had a nice model when you were done. Everybody wants everything handed to them these days.

I agree. Some of my fondest memories of childhood was model building in the basement.
