    Good god! I forgot all about him. I loved his ship too as a kid! Got any reference for his ship? I'm always looking for new ideas. :)

    Pitty. There's probably a site somewhere. I may have to look into that.

    The Draconia was always my favorite ship from this series. I've also seen a 3d model of the Searcher.

    Hawk Pics on Starship Modeler.

    I've got pics of Alfred Wong's resin build from Starship Modeler (Starship Modeler - Your Complete Information Source for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Real Space Scale Modeling). You can also search their gallery and get them.

    And I LOVE that ship, more than Buck's. Granted Buck was my hero because Buck is actually my given name, but Hawk's ship just kicked butt. I liked how he could grab other ships with the talons.

    Wasn't the Searcher from Buck Rogers the same as one of the cruise ships from Galactica? Just repainted for use in Buck Rogers after Galactica got canceled.

    Hawk blueprints

    Hi all,
    I just remembered that Alan Sinclair has some blueprints that he drew available on his website:

    Alan graciously let me use his AutoCad Enterprise drawing as a starting place when I designed my model that is hosted by Jon Leslie. Without Alan's drawings, I doubt I could have produced a model with good proportions and detail without his work. I am very grateful for this.

    Contact Alan, he may have an update for you or even provide dxf or dwg file for you. He's really a great guy to chat with.

    Best Regards,
    Ron Caudillo

    Thanks ron. I have his plans and am basing the model on them.
