Re: Model of Fridge of Constellation Class
Ship itself is currently only starting detailed design, and is due to complete construction in 2026 (and reach initial operational capability in 2030.) So, for any sort of accurate model based on the real vessel, you can expect to wait until around 2026. Since it then can take the kit makers a while to decide to do the subject, and research it, perhaps 2027? A resin maker can move faster through this process than the large plastic folks, so you might then see a resin kit out first. Any kits which come out earlier than this will either be based on speculative drawings, or perhaps photos of the ship under construction.
I am now age 59. I will be 65 when the first of this class is completed. I also may not even be doing models by then. I have already realized I probably won't see one of these in my collection.
Now that the first ship of the new frigate class has been named Constellation..how long should it take for a model to come out? TIA
