    I everyone,

    Thanks a lot for your appréciation and your comments for my project.

    I'm started the centre of the ship. Man this part is very hard !!!! If you follow the instruction letter to lettre, you will be in trouble. In fact, there is no markup to locate the internal former and that's a big and I meen a BIG problem. Plus, you don't have much margin of error. All the parts dont have "tabs" to fix them together...... Nevertheless, this model is superb !

    For all that, I've made it twice !!! I've finaly finish it (with some adjustments) but I will post pictures soon as I finish to put the warns and the armor plate. It will take some time cause I'm in renovation right now (remake my second bathroom).

    One thing......................the lightning is very cool !


    Have a nice life

    I go away from this thread for a few weeks and look what happens! :eek:

    You're actually lighting her! You plan on adding lights for the windows in the center part of the "gator head"?

    Yes my friend. The LED are already in place. And for the centre section i put red LED in the sections where the landing bays are in retract position. I will ad blue bright LED for the engins to. I tink it will be great when finish.

    Actually, white LEDs with a light blue filter would probably look better. Blue LEDs are very saturated, almost a royal blue. Of course, if that's what you're going for then more power to you. :thumb:

    I remember the original series, and watched it with near religious fervor. But I gotta say . . . the new Galactica design is friggin awesome and Danscrew, you are doing int some mighty fine justice. Magnifique!

    I think we liked the first one, because there was absolutely NOTHING else on at that time, and the premise was good. So we used our imaginations to fill in the rest. Thank goodness that some of us who grew up, had the wherewithal to make it into an excellent series. :)

    I everyone,

    I have some update for you.

    I mostly finish the center of the ship. Due to the adjustments that I have to do and the finishing toutch that I want to make, I decide to finish the rear end of the centre with the engine parts.

    I'm so exited to see what it will look like that I glued the parts of the front. So for the interesser.....................look below...........:wave:

    She's looks GREAT...
    I never liked the new Galactica series...(the old is WAY better...my opinion)
    But this ship is super....i like the ribs and the parts of the hull, it looks more powerfull.

    I followed the build....and i can't wait the lightup of the complete ship.


    2 thumbs up!
