    Do you mean the smart gun? The one that is fixed to it's user by a harness? Yeah, that's a mean weapon that.

    MG42 for the smartgun and Thompsons for the M41a pulse rifle.

    2 WW2 weapons. Curious huh?

    No more curious than a Sterling sub-machinegun being used as the E-11 in Star Wars. :)

    What's really curious is when the Sulaco appears in the Rag-Tag Fleet in Battlestar Galactica.

    Yeah, I know. one of my other hobbies is replica prop-building, though my current collection is still at 0. Still, I want to do that pistol Luke force-pulled from that goon's holster in RotJ. It's made from a German air-pistol that I believe is still being manufactured. The rest of the components I'll scratchbuild. Eventually. Maybe within the next. . .oh I dunno. . .millennium, maybe?

    When? I've heard that but not seen it myself. I have season 1-3 on DVD so I'd like to go back and see for myself.

    Not sure what episode, but in it a Raptor docks with the Gemenon Traveller to take Starbuck there for some reason, I think. I don't know, it's been a while. I found a screenshot of what I'm talking about, though:

    Gem_Trvlr01

    You can see the Sulaco right above the Battlestar Defender in the upper right-hand corner of the image.

    I know the one. She goes there to interrogate a Cylon. Leoben. I think that's season 1, one of the last episodes of the season.

    Ok, I'm half way through numbering the parts now. Shouldn't be too much longer before the base model is released.

    I've also made a start on the additional parts for the second file. The detail parts.

    I've got the parts numbered now. Half of the instruuction images are done too. I think I'm on target to release this tomorrow. Then follow up with the detail parts shortly after.

    Instructions are the part I hate, but they're getting there. :)

    You should find a spray bomb of dark blue and give it a few very light coats and then dry brush the edges and then paint some minor details.

    Bob's your uncle.

    Almost done with instructions now. God I really hate doing these! But they're needed. :)

    I'll have them done by tonight, so I'm going to upload the model file after posting this.
