    Nice! Textures look awesome.

    I made a mistake about the coloured orthos, they're of the captains yaught from Insurrection. I do have a coloured side view of the Argo though.

    Also, another Trek ship I'd love to have is the T'Plana Hath, the landing ship from First Contact.

    Actually there are many more but I' won't go on. :)

    Be careful. You'll have an overload!

    I don't have a scanner but my dad does. I'll be there in the next day or two so I'll take then with me and get them done for ya.

    Nothing, I've had a good look around my books and the scan I put up of the Argo last night is the only one I have. Sorry.

    I am going out to my local sci-fi collectors shop in about a bit, so I will have a look in there. I am sure they had a resin argo model in there, it was 'very' expensive though. I know they have the 'big' ship blueprints in there, so they may have the shuttles as well.

    If it could be useful I have this image from an italian rpg.

    Also it would be wonderful, but maybe too difficult, to create a lowering ramp and a scaled model of the buggy to put inside the cargo bay of the argo shuttle, like Rukr's dropship and apc from aliens.

    just dreaming ghgh

    Well, I'm back from the sci-fi store and I affraid they have nothing in there that would help in making a paper model of the Argos.

    I was a bit annoyed with the shop owner, he asked why I wanted information on the argos. So I told him that some guys were designing a card model on the internet and he said ''what'' and just laughed. At first I was going to walk out of the shop, but I spend a lot of time and money in the shop. So I asked if I could show him this forum on their shop computer. He was like a kid in sweet shop, he was amazed.

    And, he is a new series BSG fan, he loved the new ships.

    Idiot! LOL Some people are so small minded sometimes about things they know nothing about. I was the same when I first found a link that lead me to this hobby. :)

    Glad he's a convert or I'd have had to send the boys 'round! LOL :)

    Very well done nothing!
    I was looking often for days on the net and the hand colored paper model you mentioned was the only one available. I hardly can wait you release this model so that I can build it.

    Woohoo!! Hang on a minute. Those markings aren't on the other pics. Is this a different build pic? It's looking very nice by the way. :)
