If this keeps up I will need to add a Battlestar section to the site.

Actually that might not be as daft as it first sounds....

I could expand the generic modelling section a little just to keep it organised, I was thinking to do something like that to include Derek Medding's James Bond work.

I'll consult the software guru and see what kind of mood he is in.

Would you be willing to include building info for others Steve, frame patterns and the like? We haven't had a really good in depth, plastic everywhere kinda build session from you for ages... pretty please

that BSG model is a good one, my fist one I built was back in 1979 and got it from a hobby shop. I'll see if I can post an image of mime.

Looks brilliant Ken (!) but can't understand why you didn't make it a little larger to studio scale at 6 foot which would have meant you could have utilised the original kit parts (or at least the easily obtainable most recognised ones) ? Having to scratch-build the most noticable kit parts at a slightly smaller scale must have been a pain in the a**.
Still - it certainly has the look and feel of the studio prop and to the non kit part spotter they would never notice the difference. It's a great model.

Here's my offering/ongoing build (5 years and counting).

http://s42.beta.photobucket.com/user/bobs56/library/

At half size of the original (approx. 39" long).

All those scratch built parts.........................they're taking forever.
