    Thank you one and all for the kind words, encouragement, and support on this project.
    For now, I am putting this project on hold. I recently received the plans for Ranger-3 from ThunderChild to test build. I have started a build thread, which can be found here: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?p=969972#post969972.
    Once I have finished the test build for Ranger-3, I will return to this project.

    Back to the Galactica

    After a successful (and enjoyable) test build of Ranger-3, I am now returning to this build once again. Here is my progress thus far.

    I am continuing with the armor hull plating.

    Here is a close-up of the armor hull plating.

    And more Armor hull plating.

    Now it is time to tackle the middle section and the hanger pods (Before I can attach the bridge section parts together).

    Update

    Here is an update of my progress.
    I have started on the middle section.
    I will add the Armor Hull Plating after I have attached the sliding arms and the Landing Bay Pods.

    Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement.
    Since UHU02's Viper has now been released, I have decided to put this project on hold for now, until I have finished the Viper build.
    Please do not panic or worry. I will finish this project.

    I know you will, RB. Quitting is for the weak, and you're not one at all. I can tell!
    Now, to the Viper build! I'll be following it with GREAT interest.

    The ships are all available in the downloads section here at Zealot but you need to have 10 posts before you gain access to the downloads area. They are also available at my website.

    Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I know that it has been quite awhile (about seven (7) months) since my last post in this thread.
    As promised though, I have resumed (albeit quite slow) work on this project once again.
    Here are the photos of my progress thus far.

    I have added the ribs to the main body.
    I will be adding the armor hull plating later.

    I started on the pylons for the landing bay pods.
    I used superglue to re-enforce the brackets that help keep the arms in place when they slide in and out.

    Hangar bay Pylon assemblies are finished.

    Please stay tuned to your local Colonial Broadcast System for further updates as they happen.
