Battlestar Galactica: Colonial Shuttle (TOS)

Discussion in 'Science Fiction & Fantasy' started by Martin Saenger, Jul 27, 2008.

  1. Hello Friends,

    Every two years take place in germany the "Spacedays", a pure SF exhibition. Small, but fine. 2008.pdf

    The visitors can receive always a free printed cardmodel and I support the exhibition with the construction of the model. We had already the Star Trek Workbee and the Puddle Jumper from Stargate Atlantis. Now we visit the Battlestar Galaxy. We decided us for the colonial shuttle from the original series (TOS).

  2. Greatest problem (like always) the lack of any kind of detailed plans. But I found a lot of pictures from a good resin model. The pictures were the basis for the shape of the shuttle.

    The 3D model developed again in Rhino.

  3. The model is in scale 1:120 and will have a length of approx. 23 cm.

  4. The quantity of surface details was overwhelming and a lot of work.

    After the exhibition the model will be available free on my website.

    Hello Martin, I was following the progress on the shuttle and the Falcon from Rabe on
    Not that I'm a StarWars fan ore what ever, just like the Falcon (7000 pices and still not finished) and how he is building it!

    It looks awesome. I'm impressed you did it all in sketchup. I never could get the hang of it.
