This is my build of my Moebius advanced raider Its a nice kit i would like to put a roving eye in it, but I'm not that talented so i will have to wait to see if someone will make a kit that will do that. If that happens i will make another raider that i can put a roving eye in. Until than I'm going to put a static eye in this one to mimic the scan done to Anders in season 4 and also light the engines. Kinda started putting some of it together before i shot these pictures so some of this dose not come together as shown.



Glued in nut so i can support it and run the wires for lights in a tube:

Re: Moebius Advanced Cylon Raider

Just picked up this kit last weekend. I was surprised at how big it really was.
It looks like it'll go together quick, which I like, but the paint and lights, that's a whole other story. looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

Re: Moebius Advanced Cylon Raider

OK its time to get modified for lights I bought 3mm led's for it (2 white and 1 red)I haven't received the red one yet in the mail
1st made a blank piece to put the led in, made it at the end of the engine piece to be just in front of the clear lens.






For the eye I made a piece that goes right behind the eye opening and drilled a hole in it in the middle of the opening, still have some work to do here i have to seal it off after i get the led in it .





This shot is of the seam that was fixed and you can also see the end of the guns that i drilled out to make it look a little more real.

Hi Cylon,

I am not sure if it isn't too late but it shouldn't be too hard to put a "eye" in... all you need is a LED chaser with about 5 or so LEDs... there are alot of sets like this on the market, you would just have to make sure that they go back & forth instead of chasing and starting at the beginning again. Just "chasing" back & forth would be the simple variation, if you wanted it to look more realistic, each LED should blink on and when the next LED turns on it should fade out to create that well known cylon look. That is not that much more complicated, just requires a little better chip.

check out my Galactica thread, just last night I programmed the chaser for the launch bay.

The area is really small not sure if theirs enough room so im kinda of waiting to see if someone makes one that will work and i will just buy one and build another one,as for now its going to be a static eye as when it scanned Anders in season 4 .
Thanks for the heads up but my ability to do lighting is very limited. If you could make one and sell it im sure you could make a killing ,every one i know is looking for one.

Re: Moebius Advanced Cylon Raider

Got a lot done this afternoon,my red led came in for the eye. I installed that and was able to prime it and a coat of color. As far as the eye if your doing a static eye as i am bring the led right to the middle of the eye opening directly behind it if you don't you wont be able to see the light from the sides.
Here's some progress shots:



Primed shots




Color coat

Nice. Looks amazing! I have a Cylon circuit in anticipation a year ago, complete with sound, but after getting the kit realized its wayyyyy too big. If I can figure that out, I can show you a moving eye lol.
