Aaron's model is a bunch of panel lines on a a shell. There's no way as to checking it's overall shape to see how accurate. If you build it, you will have a shape with many panel lines. May be a good foundation for greebling, which would take much research.

As far as the other guy,, spit after you say that name, and please avoid saying or referring to it on the forum. :blueface:

For the record, I admire Aaron Murphy for his diligent, though dim bulb. Thought sometimes he forgets who his friends are/were, and he has no good reason for not visiting this forum, especiallly we the situation I offered him. (Maybe he does now!) I think he forgot how much I taught him, in private emails to my home, that man just did not understand Rhino 3D. I felt slighted. Now, I only mention it because it came up, but would still welcome him. Publicity is publicity, he doesn't seem to understand that either.

It would be interesting to see this built, I never saw one on paper, if that of Ninjatoes. In my personal taste, the one of the original series pleases me more than that of the most sinister-looking Ninjatoes.

I was wondering if anyone has posted a build thread of Muphyaa's (TOS) Cylon Raider? Here is the link to the download: http://jleslie48.com/bg/index.html

I am wanting to build it, However, I am curious to see if anyone else has and look how they did it.
Thank you!
Looks neat! I've always loved the TOS Cylon Raider. I built the Gearz's version of the BSG. It's about a foot & half long. Nice beginner's model with some room for greebling. Hope everyone had a nice Christmas and wonderful New Year.

Take care.

I to built that Galactica several years ago. It was a fun build. I need to rebuild it some day soon.
Here is a photo of it.

As you can see it didn't have much in the way of greebling and pretty much kept it was kept "stock". It was a first attempt at building this model, back in 2015, so it's very limited as were my skills back them.

It's always nice to take a look at what is done and then go, "but it can be so much better". The mantra of all engineers, designers and builders at one time or another.

It looks good! Granted, yes, it does have a great deal of greebling potential. However, I fully understand what it is like to work with limited resources, knowledge and time. With the knowledge and skills that you have now, I hope that you rebuild it again.
