BSG TOS builds

Post by Dragonn » Tue Mar 26, 2013 7:01 pm

OK so, I just got back into modeling and one of my fave themes is Battlestar Galactica. Even as a kid I never had BSG models. Just everything else, which I no longer have after 35 yahrens.
So I went on a spree and picked up 13 TOS Vipers, 6 TOS Raiders and one Galactica 78.
Heres my Raider I just completed. I actually had a blast with the Raider so I bought more. LOL
First time I'd done weathering with chalk.

Next is my 2nd Viper that I built specifically for Dirk Benedict to sign.

I did a very lite dust with a dark red on the engine housing, and then dark grey over that. I was going for the heated metal over and over look.

AWESOME builds, man!

Can't wait to see all your Vipers and Raiders finished up.

Let the battle begin!

For the Battlestar I actually have 15 tiny vipers and 9 raiders, about 1/4 in long. Still over scale for the Battlestar but I think I can make it work and do a battle scene.
For the 1/32 Vipers and 1/45 Raiders, I may have a couple hanging for a small dog fight, but I'm building other vipers for autographs if I get the chance. The rest will be hopefully in a -10ft launch bay/ and or flight deck display. I just started so we'll see how big it will become. LOL
Seeing others post their dioramas has inspired me to push my limits.

Glad it helped. If you say it is okay we'll add up your model pics... more photos the better!!! They can help future builders :)
