    EXACTLY! The BSG In-House FX department did such a marvellous job in taking the original design and turning it into something meaner. That's why I'd love to see a paper model of it rather than the original one. :)

    With that Sketchup model, it could be possible to pull off. :)

    The mesh has some holes which have to be closed first; my Yoda suffered from the same issues - closing them can be a nightmare because the program is somewhat stubborn when it comes to that! :)

    I have been toying with the mesh a bit and projected a picture of Klaus' model onto it. This is how that afore-mentioned merge would look like:

    (And yes, this is a RENDERING of that SketchUp model, not a picture of a real model! ;) )

    it looks really like a studio model.

    I would love to watch that thread.

    The mesh has to be prepared for papercrafting first and I'll need to get the consent of Klaus who has built that marvellous model. I'll keep you posted! :)

    Hi,
    Sorry for dredging up this old topic.
    But I was looking thru the old topics and came across this one....
    Was wondering if it was ever released.
    Looked in the downloads but couldn't find it.
    Was the Eastern Alliance Destroyer released?

    @Revell-Fan still needs to do some revisions and corrections to the original template.
