    Those are awesome graphics! I love to see stuff like this because they are the kind of details I obsess over. Nice job @Revell-Fan

    Love the viewscreens! I plan to print the bridge viewscreen on the backside of a 8 mm acrylic plate as a background for my Moebius Models Battlestar Galactica model!

    Yes, I will! And I am already thinking about a larger version. REALLY large... we can print directly onto Acryl up to a size of 150 x 350 cm... would be a Uebercool deco element for my hobbyroom...

    DONE!

    I finally printed the star map onto acryl (5 mm thick) and placed it behind my Battlestar model. Looks very cool, IMHO!

    Thanks Revel, Joseph has posted his intro. :)

    Marco, Beautiful model, and display. You may want to consider a Lexan box to cover and protect it though, in the long term. :)

    Bookshelf Obelisks

    Oopsie, I just found the Bookshelf Obelisks from Adama's quarters. These were supposed to be released together with the star maps but I forgot to re-scale the big version so that it holds regular (letter-size / A4) books in place. Well then, I used my lunch break to print and assemble the parts. This is the result:
