Hi, does anyone have a size for the dish. I have my 6" toilet ball ( where else could you say that!!!) just need to know the dimensions on the curve.

Also, is there a definative centre point for mounting the radar assembly on the mobile roof?

Any help appreciated.

Many thanks for looking in.

Thanks Paul for whipping out your measure.

I have one too but don't generally use it as a rule

a picture from the great science fiction and sets web site. best guess really. you know it sits in the middle of one plane of the model and from this picture you can get it pretty close to where it should be on the other plane
cheers Paul

Not sure if this is any help, but they now do some of the parts needed to make the dish.

Cheers FrankUFO but I have already bought these and just may have been the catalyst for the set as I sent him pics of what was needed!

I sent him an email a couple of months ago about the Radar parts but never received an answer at all, so I don't know if he still sells these.

On another one of his pages he has a large Galactica shuttle but no information if he sells these either.
