    All I can say is...Wow! I don't know what else to say. Amazing build. I greatly admire your patience with all the greebling. My daughter usually doesn't pay much attention to my modeling interests, but she has watched this build thread closely with me & has been just fascinated with what you've done here too. :)

    Chad,

    Wow! That's very kind of you.:) BTW here's some cardstock links for you and your daughter to check out. The first one has very basic models that are geared specifically to children.

    http://www.ariespapermodels.nl/menu-scifi.htm

    This next one - Canon creative park - is a little bit more advanced and includes animals that kids can build.

    http://cp.c-ij.com/en/categories/CAT-ST01-0072/index.html - animal link

    My youngest has built a dolphin, a blue whale, and an orca from this site.

    Have a great day and thanks for stopping on by!

    This is a very inspirational build!
    The greebling detail that you are putting into this model is IMPRESSIVE!
    I am looking at making this model when I start my BSG collection.

    Rhaven,

    I'm looking forward to when you build your version of the Defender.:)

    Still more to do though, but very little. Just the engine back portion and the fighter bay.

    Thank you very much for your comments and for stopping on by.

    It's kind of funny ZathrOS says that nobody listens to ZAthros I always listen and try to do what ZaTHRoS says!;) As far as guidance is concerned, you're being too modest there. Your words of encouragement and stories are always inspirational!

    Thanks!:Drinks:

    well you got a lot more likes and a comment on how he would like to see the rest of your fleet in scale to the galactica. plastic modelers are kinda snobby in my opinion so I think that's batting a thousand so far!!

    Funny you say that because whenever I make a post, I feel like I am intruding. If I make a suggestion, I feel that people think I am trying to be a know it all. I appreciate what you said, very much. :)

    Spaceagent,

    Which site did you send it to so I can view the results?

    Just curious. Thanks for doing so BTW.
