Hey guys. I am new to posting here. I have been lurking for the better part of a year now.

Here is a little project I have been working on in some form for almost two years now. A model of the New Galactica.

First some drawings.

This PDF if 4MB so you are fairly warned;

And here is a page with some CG studies I did to get my forms right;

This is a big picture. If your screen is black scroll down and to the side;

And here are a couple of shots of my first parts test;

The first set of parts were adding up to be too thick. So I remade the laser cut parts bigger to fit proportionally. This Galactica is about the same scale as that little Basestar resin kit that Federation Models sells.

The first thing I wanted to do was test out the shapes in a smaller scale. Then I would exploit that work and make copies. I have some interest from a former Zoic employee who wants to get some for gifts. This smaller version won't need the same amount of detail that a 22" one will. It's a nice way to scratch that Galactica itch. And work out any problems.

I look at those pictures and think that you're doing a great job. Then, I see the shot showing you holding it in the palm of your hand and get a sense of the scale that you're working in, and I'm absolutely blown away. Simply amazing.

Wow. I too was amazed when it was shown in your hand. I thought it was larger than that with all the tiny raised lines in it. Great job. I can't wait to see it finished. :thumbsup

It's amazing. I see shots of this and I'm blown away by the detail you've managed to put into it. Then, I see a shot where your finger is shown and I can't believe that you're doing all this on such a small scale. Friggin' astounding.
