Default Battlestar Galactica (TOS)

Here are some pics of my Battlestar Galactica, updated with SMT's Detail Set.





The first mistake I made was in tninking this would be easy. I had to use a Dremel to remove the sparse detail already on the model (my first time using one, BTW), and at times I was sure that all I had done was mutilate a model that would be very expensive to replace.



My second mistake was naively thinking the SMT panels would snap right in for a perfect fit. Silly me. A fair bit of sanding and shaping was required to make them fit. And even then there were several gaps to be filled. Some left over X-wing fighter landing gear parts worked rather well in this area.





I also stuck tiny squares and rectangles of styrene all over the model to even out the business. Except for the red circle on top and the vessel nomenclature, all of the red markings were painted.

Dead on accurate? Nope. But a good deal more impressive than it's original form!

That looks good.

Is that detail set still available?

A detail set's only good if one has a Galactica to put it on. Anyone know where I might find one?
