Creating a new model, tying in LoD skins, skins from various sets, damage vfx, weapon hardpoints, engine trails and more will take a hell of a lot more than an hour. They're not going to take an existing ship, change two data points and re-sell it for 25 bucks.

I'd be very surprised if the Andorian ship was a lock box ship.
It's coming with a bridge. No ship released post Odyssey/Bortasqu that comes with a bridge has been a non-lockbox ship. Add in the known demand for it, and it's 100% ripe for yet another PWE cash grab.
