This Japanese model looks superb, is large enough for proper detailing and will be released in three versions (styrene kit, pre-finished and painted kit and a master replica with custom 3D-printed and photo-etched parts):

Never did purchase the Moebius "Discovery" kit as the detail was a bit soft for the heavy price and the interior/pod bay detail-up sets also cost too much. This kit looks much more appealing.

Video on next year's "Discovery" model from Japan, comparing it to the U.S. release. The Moebius spokesperson agrees that the increase in size brings out much-needed detail (as they worked on it with Kaiyodo). It will be released as $13,000 prop replica, $1,300 finished model and $400 plastic model editions.

A prototype of the upcoming EVA pod model from Moebius is also on display.
