    Here is a photo of the classic cylon rifle I made, it is un-fibreglassed and painted at the moment, I did this model as I have a cylon outfit, hence I needed the prop.

    Very COOL! I still love the original show. Any chance you will ever design the "Colonial Lazer"? I have the Cylon costume files and the Colonial Viper helmet files.

    THAT is going to complement my Gold Centurion outfit quite nicely.

    I would be very easy to replace the barrel and bayonet with perspex, which would make it look more screen accurate.

    Most excellent!! Love the original series (the new one wasn't too bad to start with but fizzled badly at the end)

    This would be a fabulous addition to the cylon armour released by BazookaJoe!!

    Great news on the Colonial Blaster. I've wanted one of those for years. I recently found a file for the Rocketeer's Helmet over on the 405th's site. Now if I can just figure out how to build Rocketman's Helmet and rocketpack from the old serials I can finish decorating my art studio with vintage scifi. I love your Proton Pack from Ghostbusters. Keep up the great design work. Are you designing everything in 3D then taking it to Pepakura for unfolding?. I'm still trying to design in 2D and repainting in Photoshop.

    Colonial Blaster

    Ok I have researched the Colonial Blaster and yes I can produce one in 3D Meta and then papercraft it.

    Here are a couple of ref pictures I found to work from, though not sure of the scale yet, but that is a not a problem, if you can ok these designs clif52 i will make a start on it.

    Awesome! I attend a large paintball tournament every year, and would dearly love to convert my paintball marker to a Cylong Rifle (ummmm.... any durable but soft solutions for the bayonet?)

    Looks great Steve. I've been out of commision for the weekend with a major snow storm and just got back online at work this morning. I haven't had electricity for most of the weekend and my internet is still down. Sorry I couldn't respond sooner. Thanks from all the Battlestar Galactica fans for this one. The only model I've ever seen of it was an expensive resin kit. I can't wait to get some time and start building what you have uploaded.

    Thanks

    Hey Kjev, how about replacing it with a piece of that white craft foam that you can get at the craft store or Walmart? I've seen flexable clear somewhere thats 1/4" thick. The problem I can't remember where I saw it.

    Cylon rifle added

    For all you Cylons out there, the Cylon rifle has been added to the download area awaiting approval, you can either make it up in card or use some parts as stencils to make parts in wood, the barrel and baynot can be replaced with perpex, I have left this file unlocked so you can edit it to your needs.

    Have fun

    Steve

    Hi thokamous, I created a PDO pattern for my leg armour on my cylon outfit as the armour I purchased from ebay for a nice price of £70 , not sure what that is in dollers, and that only included the top armour parts, I also had to create the belt buckle parts using the Papercraft technology and then fibreglassed them up and painted them with alcad high chrome paint, which has a finish of about 90% real chrome, but for the fraction of the cost of real chroming. If you want the PDO patterns for the leg armour just PM me your e-mail address as I don't think I can upload the Pdo files here as they are not really classed as papercraft, I just used this technology to solve a lot of problems in both my leisure and work.

    As for what file types count as papercraft, I'd shoot a PM to Ekuth.

    I think it's the medium the model is made from that makes it papercraft or otherwise, not the file it comes from. But the Big E is the person to ask.

    Please feel free to post the armor parts! I myself would love to have them as my outfit is only 1/2 complete. :mrgreen:
