Finished this rag tag ship from Original Series Galactica today. This is a nearly exact replica of the original filming miniature. After lengthy and tedious research and utilizing references I was able to find over 90% of the original model kits/parts. The Flat Top was on the show in several incarnations, initially with no 'bridge' on top, and no extensions on the bottom or solar panels. This replica represents the last version of it as filmed. You can find it in numerous screen shots. One thing I am particularly proud of with this build is the accuracy that exceeds the current restored original miniature. They include this model having an exact replica of the top 'bridge' section (the original restoration uses incorrect star trek nacelles and center section), also the orientation of the 'solar panels' and the angled pontoon supports were corrected for this build (the original restoration is backwards).
This build also shows a pretty accurate paint job on the top of the ship which has rarely been seen. The model is not perfect by any means, but I'm happy with the results and will join the numerous other rag tags in the collection.
Thanks for looking!
Sean

Your RTF is awesome! Just beware, it looks like it has been infiltrated by Cylons and the Eastern Alliance!
