Well after a super crappy week, I got back into town to my fedex delivery of honeycomb grid material ... Ordered 1/8 inch grid size, 20 degree diffusion and it comes in black polycarbonate.
My error, I misread your question. Given that the Monogram kit is listed as 1/4105 and is measured at 17.25 inches long that would make the "real" Galactica 70811.25 inches or 5901 feet. At 37.5 inches Mike's kit works out to around 1/1888 scale.I recieved my kit last week and yes I know it's 37 1/2 inches long and it's 1/2 the studio scale, but what is the actual scale of the model? 1/2000, 1/1500, 1/2500? My question is what is the actual scale of the kit?
Looks good, I ordered a piece also. Keep the pictures and updates coming. The good/bad news is my bench is covered in another project ATM, but I'm pushing hard to get done so I can start on this one in the next couple of weeks. I'm not proud, all good ideas I see here I will try to emulate.Got to see the hex material in place with the original. Love it. I will be dry brushing the face a medium/dark silver for sure, and leaving the inner cells black for when the powers off. Yes, Sean had the back plate upside down for the first picture, he "meant" to do that to show off the raised center detail better! Yeah, that's it! :facepalm
