    The station looks really great Andy, you did a fantastic job on it. :thumb: Almost makes me want to build another one myself. I'm just glad somebody else decided to build such a cool iconic model. The show was all about the people and the choices they made, not all the action took place on the station but it was their home and a symbol for many. Again you did a great job Andy. Hope you decide to build others from the B5 universe.

    Yes, of course. I am planning. When the stand and all the other stuff is ready, I want to build a black Omega fighter. You know the ship of telepath Mr. Bester.

    Hello,

    I show you the Agamemnon. The occurrence of these ships in the series has impressed me repeatedly. The show for me was always the hammer. The model is reduced (printed on A5) to correspond approximately to the station. Now I know that would have to be even smaller. Although the texture and the parts are quite simple, but in the overall picture just great. You can also rotate the center section represent (for generating the force of gravity on board). I have firmly glued, as the spacecraft with the station will be on the stand.

    Greetings Andy

    Andy, your Omega turned out really nice. I too enjoyed this one but I ran into issues while trying to fold the engines. They turned out ok in the end, but not as nice as yours I think. I plan on remaking this one but using Lepaj more detailed version next time, he has a real cool Nova ship I'd like to build sometime too. I like your idea of building the Omega Starfury, it was so dark it would blend in in space.

    Regards,

    Rick

    I like Lepaj's too, except it took him almost two years to build. It shows too. It is awesome! :)

    Thank you all.

    I got some problems at the engines, too. Even to know where the parts have their place. Had to cut there, otherwise it will not fit together. Whether the drive is now built correctly, I do not know. But this just know the diehard fans and they are rarely. :)

    I have also toyed with the better detailed output, but it seems to me difficult to build. But the version of lepaj is awesome.

    Greetings Andy

    I agree his are awesome, I want to try his Starfury with the Tiger pattern on it. But first I'll build the Hyperion since I have it already printed out. That wont be until after I finish my Colonial fleet.

    Can't wait to see how you do on the Black Omega Starfury, good luck.

    Regards,
    Rick

    I would truly advise not to fold the parts, but to cut them, make "L"shaped strips, and glue them together, maybe reinforcing the parts in the process. You will get a better result this way. :)

    Thanks Zathros, I will definatly keep that in mind. In fact I will write that down on the pattern so I wont forget it when I get to it.

    Don't know if you have ever bent a lot of sheet metal, but that build of of the radius is what makes the parts come out wonky. :)

    Great job on the station. Your attention to detail shows. Parts like the solar panels give me fits! My compliments. Speaking of Babylon 5, does anyone know where I can find a model of a ppg?

    Thank you all.

    @ gideon: What do you mean with ppg?

    Well, here are the final pictures of the display stand. I build a white star ship, too. I'm sorry. I don't know the homepage. But I found it by a search with google.

    Greetings Andy
