Default A cathedral of plastic....

Bit surprised Duey hasn't posted on this one....

He loves Battlestar Galactica stuff, did you see his Colonial Movers build Ken?

Check it out....

http://www.eagletransporter.com/foru...ghlight=movers

And our own Steve36uk has built a Galactica or two in his time. I can remember popping into a model shop in Cheltenham in the late 1980's and seeing a real beauty hanging from the ceiling. I never dreamt that I would chat to the guy who actually built that model over 20 years later.

I am actually getting scared to look in the background of your photos as I think I have spied more interesting stuff.... dear god

Think I'll be sitting down for a bit...

Very, very impressive! Are you a professional model builder or "just" a very talented Sci Fi fan who has a lot of time?...

All your threads are very interesting, especially with all the pics. Thank you.

I love to do this stuff --I go away for work in May to Oct gone 6 months don't get a chance to do anything then, but take advanatage of it when I get home.Wish I could have did it for a living, now that would have been the LIFE.
Thanks Ken
