Here's a photo from the backlot that shows the Starfighter half mock up. The production used this in hanger shots along with the fully built fighter. Plus for all I know this could have been used for some cockpit close ups also. Looking behind it, could those be parts of a Viper?

I guess it is.

Also note the "Tower of London" castle set in the background.

It became the Cylon outpost in "The Young Lords".

It's the front area of a jet.

Recently, I've been filling in the gaps of my Enterprise Incidents magazine collection. Just picked up the June 1984 issue, and inside was a small B&W photo of the Starfighter mock up dismantled and on a flatbed. Thought I'd share with other Buck fans.

That is very cool. I bet it was part of the short lived effects show that Universal had.

Did they actually use a Starfighter mock-up for that? All I've ever been able to find about the FX show that had anything to do with Buck is this photo. While they are wearing helmets, and a sorta lookalike costume, the mock up isn't a Starfighter.
