    I am looking for reference for the original series Cylon Raider - I am looking for a good detailed shot of the "intake" areas below either side of the 'nose' of the vehicle. The real thing or an acurate studio scale image would get me there - thanks in advance to anyone who can help out!

    I'm the one who built that pattern for Custom Replicas. What exactly do you want to know about the intake fronts?

    Looks like somebody fried the code in this thread! The Raider may be making a comeback, if and when complete details will be posted at my site. Same goes for the Viper. Stay tuned!

    Hi guys, I don't have any info on the Raider anymore. It belongs to Custom Replicas and I don't have much contact with them anymore. If what Charles says is true, it will be great to see the kit back out. There are a couple things that need to be replaced on it and I will gladly offer castings of the replacement parts OR tell you privately the kit/kits to get [​IMG]

    KC, drop me a PM. I haven't seen you since the kit show!
    We need to catch up on things [​IMG]

    I'm glad the Raider was so well received. It was a labor of love. Trying to get some more goodies going but too many projects going at once [​IMG]

    Firstly, thanks everyone for the responses!

    My goals are simpler than a studio-scale model - I'm refinishing a Monogram kit, and I'm rebuilding a few key details to better resemble the original.

    The area that I can't find clear shots of are the areas inside of the 'intakes'- the front ends of the engines, is maybe the best way to describe the area. I've combed the available reference, and haven't seen a good shot yet that lets me know what the surface detail in there looks like.
