    The tail booms consist of three parts. I had to redo the unfold because the first one was not very elegant. It was buildable, however, the folding and glue lines were clearly visible. Now it looks much better.

    Some close-ups of the greeblies. There was no need to change anything on them. The radome looks great when assembled!

    I am looking forward to it.

    The "cocoon" flat cut-out looks like some sort of alien bug, transforming into a cocoon.... :mrgreen:

    I am uploading JayBats Colonial Raptor in this thread for a short while. His website says as long as it is a FREE distribution, he authorizes it. I am not putting it the downloads section, this way, anyone can download it from here. If anyone has a problem with this, tough. He authorized it and it plainly states so on his website. If he wants it removed, it will be gone. It appears many of his models cannot be downloaded. This models remain his. :)

    Thank you, Zathros! BTW, the parts pages of the new Raptor are ready. I am now working on the assembly instructions. As soon as they are ready you'll get a Raptor in four different colour schemes. The Assault Raptor and the cockpit interior may take a while though.

    Raptor over Germany

    Hello, folks! :wave:

    Here are the first pics of the Raptor over Germany. There was no compositing involved in these shots; everything was done in the camera. Digital magic was only required to make the hot-shot pilot invisible to protect his privacy. .... Well, not really. He just didn't have clearance for German airspace. (Please don't tell anybody! :mrgreen:)

    I used the lit engine templates to create the illusion of a working thruster (third pic). :twisted:

    Some beauty shots. I added six little red glitter stones to simulate the bottom lights. They sparkle when light falls on them.

    Galactica meets Earth technology! The helicopter in the background is an artwork and is made of wood in 1:1 scale. Forced perspective gives the illusion that the Raptor is circling around it.
