    OK the release is close. i started this to gather some interest and show that it is almost here. at first i had invisioned ribs and stanoff plates etc, but i just cant expend that much resource. the bridge section alone is 20 pages! the textures look great. SJ did a great job resizing them.

    this is the bottom section of the bridge area.

    Wow! That's the perfect size to show detail and to get the wife/parental unit to let you display it. :wink:

    OOO OOO Can't wait! I like em BIG! Big, fat, huge models! Models that look like you could film them. Models with detail and weight! Something that REALLY looks like a ship! WHOOT! Size does matter, especially when building something as iconic and massive as this! I can't wait! WHOOT! WHOOT! WHOOT!

    Looking really super Nothing!!! I'll be finishing up my section today! Though I've not started any sort of testbuild yet. Been really busy these past couple of days. Plus I don't have enough ink here for it so I'll wait until I get some.

    I thought it'd be a cool idea for myself, SJ and Nothing to each build their sections and send them to say, SJ(seeing as he's done all the hard work for this one) so that he can link up the three sections and have the model to display at his place? As it's paper, it wouldn't cost much to send.

    My job is unfolding and arranging the rear(typical for me, I always was an ass man! LOL)

    Outstanding effort gentlemen..! Forget the humility BS, I don't think the Cylon's could have worked together so well.

    * Could someone please send me a set of Bino's so I can see where the bar is now! :rolleyes:

    I've got a serious question, or two......What grade of Card Stock are you using? It looks pretty thick. Also, what color is the Big G? Will there be a black and white version available?

    Thanks.

    actually the internals ive laminated to cracker boxes for the thickness. the skin is standard epson card stock. she is pretty much shades of grey all over except the markings.


    here ive started the internals for the main bridge.
