    Many many sincere thanks R-F, thinking of doing the 1/24 scale in sheet styrene and 'down-scaling' the pattern for a 1/48 and 1/72 !

    Again sir, sincere appreciation and kudos !

    If you do so you'll HAVE to put LEDs in it! Of course, you could also turn it into an RC model... :twisted:

    A little update: ASC requested a model of the Landram Chariot from the episode "The Magnificent Warriors". Since I have the 3D model of the Landram, I fired up SketchUp and made the necessary changes. To all of you who might have been thinking about converting the Landram into the Chariot: The vehicle differs from the Landram in so many respects that all efforts may be in vain. The angles, lights, wheels and tracks are different and one axle is missing. The differences may be of some advantage though: Assembly of this model will be much easier. All parts and instructions have been sent to ASC for test-bulding. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure. Stay tuned!:wave:

    I'll start the build tonight! Thank you RF! That looks different then I remember, but I think I last saw it in poor lighting, in 1978....

    Hello, My name is Rhaven, and I am a battlestaraholic.

    I do not have a problem with BSG.

    I watch BSG.

    I enjoy the program.

    I build a really cool BSG model (or two or three or more) whilst listening to the BAG sound track.

    I shoot a few toasters along the way. train97

    See, no problem.

    Well, 500 hrs. on my DVR are Battlestar Galactica Episodes. I guess I'm in that club. I watch them in earnest. I find myself on the side of the "Good Toasters" more often than not! :)

    It's been 2 months since I've watched an episode, and the urge to do so is really getting strong lately with all these great models coming out...

You ruining the contitnuity, That's actually I blurted out, I misspoke, I meant, continuity of course, just a Freudian slip.!!. True story. Had to watch it at 11:00 O'clock p.m., 3 DVD's worth. I may have to watch it again, though, as I think I missed some parts...... Of the movie!!:twisted::p

    Hello, My name is Revell-Fan, and I am a battlestaraholic.
    I know every episode by heart. I resemble Dirk Benedict. And I'm building my own blaster. Like those Jedi-Padawans.
    Do I have to say more?
