SS Raider - Done


Sr Member
At 17" in wingspan this baby is big. Lots of fun to build..but lots of work too. Anyways...I wanted to share her with you all. Hope you like. This one is a commission for a very very very patient buyer. It took far to long to finish ...but I hope he, and you like the results.

Cheers and Happy new year.

I'd hoped for a better day to take some pictures outside..but no such luck, so these are a bit dark...(my indoor lighting is terrible...I need to buy some lights. )

awesome. Seeing great kits built up like this make me 'almost' wanna get one...almost...I have the modelling skillz of a thumbless 2 year old...
Awesome work. The lights add a nice touch to the whole model. I'm sure the buyer will be quite pleased. Good job.

Jesse, that is AWESOME... I have one of these kits I got from you, and after seeing these pics, I'm dying to get to it... :thumbsup
Beautiful kit and a wonderful build, great job.

Every time I see one of these built I want one more. Are these kits still available or are they another opportunity missed?

why does it take 3 robots to fly this ship? :lol

Two to fly it, and one to sit in the back and give the orders. :lol

"Sir I... really think you... should look at the other Battlestar..." :D

What did you use for the base color, Jesse? I used Gunship Grey on my old Monogram model, but having recently re-watched the series for the first time in years, my model seems too dark. I've got one of your kits on order, and I'd like to use a more accurate paint color.

I've always interpreted the Raider as being darker than the Viper, is that in fact correct?
