    Welcome to Zealot. If you looking for BSG models, you will find links to many here. Some will require you to search for passwords, as is stated in the forum's rules, and you must search for those passwords, we can't help you with that. There are others though. Good Luck, an again, Welcome to Zealot. :)

    Hi Joe! Nice to see you around. :)

    Welcome to Zealot. I too am a BIG BSG and Buck fan (as you might have noticed ;) ). You have asked if there is a Colonial helmet in the making. I can tell you, yes, there is one:
    http://www.zealot.com/threads/a-battlestars-quest-aka-raiders-of-the-lost-crest.178290/

    I work on it, the Aurora and the Vipe Mk. I simultaneously. At the moment I am looking for some electronis to make the lights work, but I will release a version with non-wired / unlit light bars, too. I can't tell you when it will be finished but it will be a fine kit. There is a mockup file in that thread which you may use to determine the size of the prop:

    If you have any questions just PM me. :)

    BTW, I have read that you are making a Colonial Warrior costume? I'd soooo love to see some pictures, please! :)

    Meanwhile, have fun and enjoy! :)

I have a jacket, tunic and pants coming from a site titled skycostume.com. the costume is from the original BSG show.

    That sounds great! I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. (TOS BSG is my world, too! :) ) Is there a prop you are missing?

    That looks great! However, I suggest to start an own thread in the SciFi section. So it is easier to follow your build and more people see it. I recommend to add some simple formers or reinforce the parts with some scrap cardboard to strengthen the pieces. I'm in the process of revising them and will see to it that the kits will get some proper formers. BTW, next on my list is the fire fighter equipment and the first aid box. :)

    That's probably my fault, I told him to post anything he has built in his "Intro" thread.

    Joseph, if you do start a series of props, do start a new thread, under the appropriate heading, you will get far more views and comments. Customarly we start a new thread for each object we make. Makes it easier to search for. :)
