    For all of you walking chrome toasters, skin jobs, Cylon sympathizers, or just anyone who is into collecting classic Sci-Fi weaponry, here is the Cylon Blaster from Galactica 1980 (designed by one of the GREATEST designers of BSG models, Revell-fan).

    This is a very simple and straight forward build. For those of you are into costuming, this will be a very easy model to convert into a really good costume prop. If you really wanted to, you could easily mount a light and sound system in it.

    So far, I have not found any problems.

    There are eight pages of parts.

    I fully understand and agree.

    Though, this model will make a GREAT costume prop for those who like to do costuming or wants to dress like an old school Cylon.
