    Looking good! I can say yours is looking much, much better than mine turned out! I actually didn't attach those tubes at the back end of the guns [​IMG] . Harpoon is a bit tricky, try using tweezers :)

    Thank you Cybergrinder. Not all would agree. I showed the project to my cat. When he saw the exhaust ports he commented this way: ;)

    So, now serious again.
    Cannon so far, think I will have to do some amendments after finalisation. For the moment ok.
    First parts mounted - and last parts.

    I attached all on them & was seeing cooling fins in my sleep.

    Also, Starbuck, generally cats have no appreciation for fine art & skillful model building ;)

    OK, thx I will use them all - as it is like the model used in the movie.
    @ cat - after this action he was put on diet from my side, but my wife ignored my authority and diet is cancelled again.

    The rest of the cooling fins took some time. But now it´s finalized - not perfect but ok for me!

    Summary: very nice model with a good instruction. Cooling fins, and gun is tricky but only because of the small parts.

    It came out absolutely great! Another notch in your holster. Look like the real thing. Back to Galactica now, much work to be done, and you can ill afford to waste time in this fake "Star Wars" universe! :)

    Thx to all. Please no war about the two universes - they both have a great story and great ships.

    Star War might be better developed as a good model of Viper is (still) missing:(.

    What ist ment by greeble-ing?
    Next paperproject will be two minions (captain america and bee-do) as a present for my niece and my nephew.
    Afterward it will be something out of the Star Wars universe .......or probably out of the BSG universe. ;)

    Ahhh, greeble-ing. Now found the meaning.
    Yes, would like to do, but I do not have the skills (or maybe it is a matter of time that I never tried) for greeble-ing. So I have to use the given parts.
    By the way I like very detailed models - So I also made the Viper Mark II created by UHU02, which is very detailed.
    Somewhen I will also do the X-Wing from UHU02, which also provides countless details.

    This is an awesome build indeed! Congratulations, starbuck! :)

    BTW, I'm still working on the instructions for the TF cockpit and will resume work on the Aurora shortly. ;)
