Round 2 Models: Something wicked-cool this way comes…

So you are thinking “Enough with the box! What is in it already?” To be honest, it is probably one of those things that can’t possibly live up to its hype anymore. I’ve poked around a little bit to see what the speculation might be, and if all goes as planned, we will reveal it tomorrow. But for now, more hints…

  • Once assembled, it won’t fit back in this box.
  • Someone in a message board or Facebook thread HAS guessed what it is.
  • Its name does not start with an E or 24 other letters in the alphabet.

See you back here tomorrow…

    My greatest fear is that this new mystery kit will be the latest “hot property” that no one can guess, because no one wants it (i.e. the Discovery from the new Star Trek series), and not what modelers have been desperately wanting for many years (the Galileo, 1:350 K’T’inga, Reliant, etc.).

    Please, let this be a pleasant surprise. 🙂

    • Scott Filgo says:

      Nobody wants Discovery eh?

      • Brian Drumm says:

        As a cheapskate who refuses to subscribe to CBS All Access, I won’t know if I want Discovery until a DVD set shows up used at Half Price Books.

        Could be a while.

        All I know about it so far is Rainn Wilson plays Harry Mudd and someone dropped an F-bomb…

    Size of the box is unclear. Please insert a banana in the photo for scale.

    It’s gotta be a 22″ Eagle Lab with spine booster pack !!! 😉

    AHHHHH! We’re dying out here!!!!!!

  5. Stephen Cole says:

    Please be a 1/350 scale K’Tinga.

    he`s quoting shakespear didn`t general chang in st the undiscovered country quote shakespear? my guess k`tinga but happy with whatever it is

    Iron Giant would be cool, different, & unexpected. Lots of possibilities for a diorama!! However, I don’t think it would fit back in that box once assembled. Or would it?

  8. david dooley says:

    So then what letter does it start with??????

  9. J.o says:

    I hope it’s a KTinga too. Once again it’s top in a recent poll by a big margin ..

  10. Fozzie says:

    I’m still going with The Iron Giant.

  11. Robin says:

    The new star trek reliant model kit.

  12. Lawrence Whitworth says:

    Would this happen to be a 1/48 Hawk to go with the 1/48 Eagle. I was just thinking in the process of building the 1/72 it would be a good time to kit a 1/48 version and both would sell quite well. Second guess would be a waste dump in 1/72 which a lot of us have been wanting.

  13. Jim Long says:

    Can still be a Galileo

  14. Jeff G says:

    It is a 1:48 scale model of Jamies office cube…

  15. Terry Whitehouse says:

    First in the release of the 1/16 Aurora Funny car series
