    Here is the BSG LR Chariot by Rvell-fan (which is available in the download section).

    It is a fairly simple model, very straight forward, and easy to build. I did not have any problems with building it. I did however add some extra detail to it though. Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure.

    Here I laminated an extra piece of card stock around the handle to make it look more like a control handle.

    I laminated the control panel sections to add more detail. I wanted to detail out each switch and button, but they are too small for my HUGE hands.

    I raised the light panel and raised each lens.

    The main body (for the most part) is done.

    Here is the truck assembly. I laminated the treads.

    I raised the center (and recessed the circles) and outer bands.

    I raised the circle (what it is for, I have not a clue), and laminated the tow hitch.

    I have attached the side panels. As you can see, I scored the dark lines to make it look corrugated, and raised the black rectangles.

    I raised the boarder around the grill to add extra detail to it.

    FINISHED!!!

    Thank you both for the kind words.
    Even at his scale, it was a fairly easy build.
    If I would have built it at 1:18 scale, I would have added even more detail (like the buttons, and switches on the control panel would have been detailed out).
