Battlestar Galactica scratchbuilt over 5' long

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

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

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. :D

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 :pray: :D

Well since you ask so nicely I might manage something like that!! Another one to add to the "to do " list in Skunk works!!!
Good idea on the Galactica section-keep me and Duey quiet!!:D

I tell you the truth I'am running out of space for large scale models, going to build a new place in a couple years --might have to sale them lol
Thanks Ken

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.

Thanks for your comments.
