    These are great!!! I love the Buck Rogers series. I've been looking for photos to make a diorama of the New Chicago Hanger but I think I'll have to make screen captures from the DVD. Theres not much on the web.

    Unfortunately the answer to you question is, no. There is a difference between the the two types of landing gear.

    Colonial Viper landing gear is THREE POINT SYSTEM.

    ED Thunder Fighter Landing gear has only this front skid and uses the rear lower wings as rear landing skids.

    Excellent work guys! Know that it's greatly appreciated.
    It'll be a while before I get the time to start building (or designing) again but This is most definitely in the top 5 of my to-do list!

    Just thanked Martin for uploading the files. He is a great man and a great designer (don't wanna steer away from the TF topic but take a look at his 2010 space station)!

    for the BSG colored version ,do i have to recolour it or is there one i can print?
  18. Rhaven Blaack

    Rhaven Blaack ADMINISTRATOR Administrator

    For the BSG coloured versions, you will have to recolour the model yourself.
    Here are the pics that Revell-fan and I used to recolour our fighter.

    I used this one for mine.

    Revell-fan used this one for his.

    It really is not that difficult to do. You can either open the files in GIMP or MS PAINT to recolour them.

    Either way you go, I wish you good luck and look forward to seeing your work.

    not sure what GIMP is ( childish snicker) , but i am not to good with paint ,but i will give it a try!

    Working in MS PAINT really is not that hard to do. I would have to say that it is the easiest of all of the programs for doing such. It is also one of the most basic programs as well.

    Here you mate, this is the website for GIMP. Check it out: http://www.gimp.org/.

    Revell-fan told me about GIMP. I have been playing with it. I need to learn more about it myself.

    Either way, good luck with it.
