    My current project is the construction of the Cylon Explorers' Control Center on the base of the old Seerie.
    Screenshots of the DVD Battlestar Galactica helped enormously.
    Everything had begun with an ordinary painting bucket

    Basis des Zylonen Imperators
    Mein gegenwärtiges Projekt ist der Bau des Überwachungssaalen des Zylonenführers im Basisschiff der alten Seerie.
    Screenshots der DVD Kampfstern Galactica halfen hierbei ungemein.
    Begonnen hatte alles mit einem gewöhnlichen Malereimer

    (und wenn ich noch rausbekomme warum meine Fotos, welche im IPad und Phon gerade stehen, hier auf der Seite liegen und wie ich diese im phoximimages drehen kann mache ich es noch....
    Grundlage bildete auch hier wieder eine Malerleinwand mit Holzrahmen.

    (and if I still rausbekomme why my photos, which are in the IPad and Phon straight, lie here on the side and how I can turn this in the phoximimages I still make it ....

    Again, this was based on a painting canvas with a wooden frame.

    Dies wurde umgedreht und mit Pappe unterfüttert sowie die Vertiefung im Eimer angezeichnet und ausgeschnitten.
    This was turned over and padded with cardboard as well as the indentation in the bucket marked and cut out.

    Der überstehende Eimer wurde einfach mit einem Drehmel von mir abgetrennt.
    The protruding bucket was simply separated from me with a twist.

    Als Grundlage für den Sessel eignet sich ein Becher aus der Obstabteilung hervorragend.
    As a basis for the armchair, a cup from the fruit section is outstanding.

    YAY! Jenny! It's so good to see you again! :)

    This is another formidable project I'm looking for. This is gonna be an awesome playset when finished! :bowdown::Bravo::bowdown:

    Regarding the throne room: The original set piece was built up in one of the largest stages the studio could offer. The ladder used to step up to the throne was removed during filming in order to prevent it from showing. On more than one occasion the crew members forgot to put it in place after shooting again so that John Colicos had to shout for help to be able to leave the throne! :D :)

    The inner core which was seen in the last episode "The Hand of God" was in fact a second Skylab module used for training real astronauts on Earth. If I remember correctly parts of it were used in "Futureworld" later, too. :cool:

    BTW, the Imperator / ruler of the Cylons is called "Imperious Leader". ;)

    This is one big project, and like usual, you take objects and turn them into what you need. You have excellent insight and the ability to foresee what you wish, then do it! :)

    @cylongirl I am glad to see that you are back here again!
    This project looks GREAT! It always amazes me how you can take everyday stuff (like a plastic cup or water bottle) and turn it into something like you are working on now!
    KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK!!!
