JJ Abrams Star Trek "Kelvin" Phaser Kit.

This is a resin kit of the hand phaser as seen briefly in the opening scenes of the first JJ Abrams Star Trek movie. I actually really liked the movie, and thought it was a lot of fun.

There, I said it.

This kit was made from scratch by an incredibly talented RPF member, who offered a few copies of his kit. It's an extremely nice kit, very symmetrical, and looks very accurate to reference pictures. I'm always impressed by this kind of mechanical craftsmanship, and this kit leaves nothing to be desired.

Well, except to build it up, of course.

One of the props from the movie made it to auction, and some great pictures were released of it. What the pictures really reveal is just what a fantastic job the RPF member did of replicating it.

Check out this blog post for a few more really nice shots of the phaser.
