    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Here is the next figurine. Yes, it is the (TOS) Colonial Warrior (Viper Pilot).
    Now, these figurines are quite easy to put together and can be made within a couple of hours (this is why everything will be posted all at once).

    I started with the legs. As you notice, there are straps on the boot. There will be (both) brown and black boots (as both are canon).

    Moving on the the body.
    IMAG3796.jpg IMAG3797.jpg

    Here I have added the "quilted bib" panel on the front of the shirt, to give it a more realistic look.
    IMAG3798.jpg IMAG3799.jpg

    Torso is complete.

    Legs are attached.

    Next up are the arms and jacket.

    I have made the arms for (both) the shirt and jacket (for added realistic effect).
    IMAG3802.jpg IMAG3803.jpg IMAG3804.jpg

    On this arm, you can (clearly) see the "BLUE" Squadron patch on both the shirt and jacket sleeve.
    IMAG3805.jpg IMAG3810.jpg IMAG3811.jpg

    Here is the body of the jacket (with all of the "piping" detail added).

    Here is the blaster and holster. I have attached the holster to the body. This is important to do now. Otherwise, if you add it after you attach the jacket, you can have problems.

    I have added the jacket, attached the arms and shoulder pads. The good thing about the shoulder pads, is that the help to hold the arms in place.

    Here comes the part parts, "ACCESSORIES"!!!
    Here I have made the "Leg Board" (the graphic face plate is from Revell-Fan).

    IMAG3821.jpg IMAG3823.jpg IMAG3824.jpg IMAG3826.jpg

    Here are the charge cartridges for the blaster.

    Here is the helmet. Now I have added a bit more detail. There will be two types of eagles that you can choose from to mount on the top of the helmet (I have only posted one though).

    Now, there is still quite a bit more work left to do. I will be making a Pegasus version as well. Revell-Fan is currently working on the piece for the helmet. Once all of the details are fixed, and I have made a female version as well, this packet will be sent to Tirick for review, approval, and upload to his site.

    This is some fantastic work, I am in awe of what you have done with these. When I first designed them I wasn't certain how well received they would be, and I'm very happy to see you take the base design and actually do something with them. I've long moved away from actively working on them, although who can say if I'll go back. I've found it harder and harder of late to focus on modelling, even when presented with the time. But, as my kids get older, and start to (perhaps) take an interest, I might take up the mantle again. Until then, I'll just revel in your work.

    Revell-Fan, that is some kind of awesome Viper helmet!

    Thank you very much, Tirick! :) I printed mine on regular 160 gsm paper and assembled it without the flaps. Rhaven revised the eagle crest ;) . The front plates of the accessories are rescaled versions of the 1:1 scale props which can be found in the BSG resource section.

    It means a lot to me and Rhaven that you like what we have done so far. We still have one or two ideas which we will test in the near future. :)

    Wonderful work! I always loved the original series uniforms, especially the viper helmets and warrior's jacket.

    Amazing work, especially considering the small size.

    These will be a nice touch to dioramas and cockpit models.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Best Regards,

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I have now made the Female Viper Pilot. Here are the photos.

    Starting with the boot. Yes, they are brown. Both brown and black boots were used through out the series. There will be the option (to either have brown or black boots) in both templates.
    IMAG3975.jpg IMAG3976.jpg

    Now onto the main body.
    IMAG3977.jpg IMAG3978.jpg

    As you can see, I have added the "quilted" bib on the chest.
    IMAG3979.jpg IMAG3980.jpg

    Here I have added the neck, legs, and belt.
    IMAG3981.jpg IMAG3982.jpg

    Now for the holster.

    Continuing on with the progress.

    I have added the holster belt and the legboard.
    IMAG3985.jpg IMAG3986.jpg IMAG3987.jpg


    Here is the main body of the jacket.
    IMAG3988.jpg IMAG3989.jpg IMAG3990.jpg IMAG3991.jpg


    I have added the Languatron, the cartridges, and the main body of the jacket.
    IMAG3992.jpg IMAG3993.jpg

    Here the "BEST FRIEND" that any true warrior can have, the Blaster.

    Now to continue on with the arms. Yes, this figurine is from the Pegasus. I have decided to include both in the templates. That way, you can make a pilot from the Galactica or the Pegasus (which ever you prefer).

    IMAG3995.jpg IMAG3996.jpg IMAG3997.jpg

    Here I have attached the arms, shoulder pads, and head.
    IMAG3998.jpg IMAG3999.jpg IMAG4000.jpg

    Here is the Coin Stand with the Pegasus logo on it.

    Here is the Pegasus Helmet (created by Revell-Fan).

    IMAG4007.jpg IMAG4008.jpg IMAG4009.jpg IMAG4010.jpg

    Here the is the figurine with the helmet (showing the fit of it).

    IMAG4011.jpg IMAG4012.jpg IMAG4013.jpg IMAG4014.jpg

    Here are both figurines together.

    IMAG4015.jpg IMAG4016.jpg

    I still have some minor changes that i need to make to the templates, but once they are done, I will be sending everything to Tirick for review, approval and upload to his site.

    Next up I will make the Bridge Crew Uniforms.

    Please stay tuned to your local Colonial Broadcast Channels for further updates as they come in.

    Thank you for watching and ENJOY!!!

    Great work! There are some little things which have to be adapted but the overall look is astounding. I'll make the revisions and send them to you asap. :)

    Just to let everyone know, I have sent the templates to Tirick for review, approval, and upload.
    So hopefully, (within a couple of days) these will be available for everyone to download and enjoy!

    I am now working on the Bridge Crew. I will post photos as they are available.
