    Hello Friends,

    Every two years take place in germany the "Spacedays", a pure SF exhibition. Small, but fine.
    http://www.paperaviation.de/Spacedays 2008.pdf


    The visitors can receive always a free printed cardmodel and I support the exhibition with the construction of the model. We had already the Star Trek Workbee and the Puddle Jumper from Stargate Atlantis. Now we visit the Battlestar Galaxy. We decided us for the colonial shuttle from the original series (TOS).

    Greatest problem (like always) the lack of any kind of detailed plans. But I found a lot of pictures from a good resin model. The pictures were the basis for the shape of the shuttle.

    The 3D model developed again in Rhino.

    The model is in scale 1:120 and will have a length of approx. 23 cm.

    The quantity of surface details was overwhelming and a lot of work.

    Contrary to the predecessors it is a very much detailed model. This times I have 3 x DIN A4 sides place for the model.

    Hello Martin, I was following the progress on the shuttle and the Falcon from Rabe on Kartonbau.de.
    Not that I'm a StarWars fan ore what ever, just like the Falcon (7000 pices and still not finished) and how he is building it!

    Glad to see you here, can't wait to see it finished!:thumb:

    It looks awesome. I'm impressed you did it all in sketchup. I never could get the hang of it.
