Somehow I feel like watching "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" again. I was completeyl blown away and pressed into my seat so tight that I was barely able to breath. Epic and overwhelming.
thanks I like it
As others said before: This piece of work unbelievable! I wish I had the space for that model ...
And what comes next? A change of the universe and a 5 meter model of an Imperial Star Destroyer?
Building in the future?
I have seen this model before, but I thought it was as large as my fear to build it (once again, I am new to this hobby). But seeing what you are accomplishing gives me the courage to keep going on and maybe someday, when I feel more confident, build a SULACO, surely inspired by your work.
You are making real what I have only seen in files and some sparse pictures.
KEEP MOVIN' FORWARD!:thumb:
The world needs a studio-scale BATTLESTAR. So say we all. (I hope !)
SO SAY WE ALL!!!:thumb:
Half studio scale would be cool and still as large as the SULACO.
Next time around Betty of aliens
Hi there. I'm from Rio city, Brazil. Nice to meet you guys at this forum.
First of all, congratulations for the Sulaco you've been assembling. It is an awesome model.
I wanted to ask about you mentioning the Betty ship... is there some model of it available on the net? or is this going to be a scratch model you will make?
There is a superb 3D model available here:
It's high poly but surely could be adapted for unfolding.
I am going to see if I can get that. I just registered. If they want money for it, I'll look someplace else! Lots of neat stuff, but everything had a high price. You could get actual R/C planes for the price of some of that stuff! Lots of time and effort though. I guess people buy this stuff? Man am I out of touch!
Boy.... If I had the place for such a model.... Just watched the movie... How could you get that much detail from it? My mind is blown!
I guess, the only part I will ever build of this monster is the drop ship...
@Revell-Fan: But a Battlestar of the original Series ... That one looks much cooler than the new one. And I think it is easier to build.
BTW: Greetings from Nuremberg, Bavaria ;-)
We have already a BIG 3' new BSG from skupilkinson, Nothing, Steve & co. So naturally I was referring to the TOS ship..! :twisted:
Greetz back from sunny (but cold) Vreden (near NL)! :mrgreen:
Thanks for the link. I registered but was unable to get it... no download button. Anyway, I was more interested in an already unfolded model. PS: Noticing your nick, I could not help but mentioning that I had dozens of Revell plastic models - loved them. In fact, I still have some in their boxes waiting to be assembled one day when I have the availability. Here at the country I live (Brazil) they were injected under license for many years... a quarter of a century ago.
Hi, lemonade! Welcome to the forum. Don't worry about the pile of unassembled kits, you are not alone :mrgreen: ! I made the experience that especially sci-fi kits may have a very limited run and will become extremely rare and expensive soon after their release. So it is always better to get them when they are still available at reasonable prices.
One of the main reasons why I joined zealot were the BSG kits which are available in the downloads section. They are top-notch, they are free and they make excellent display pieces. In many cases papercrafting gives you more freedom and you may get models which have not been available yet or which may be impossible to afford such as many of the rag-tag fleet ships and Jan's Sulaco (which has already set a new standard for model building as a whole).
And yes, my nick was highly influenced by the Revell company because they were the first to release BSG models (which I had been hunting down for almost 18 years; times were different in the 1980s here in Germany; we even had only TWO magazines informing us about new movies - "BRAVO" and "CINEMA" - and NO STARLOG :cry: ..!).
betty'll stick around to be created from paper
Well, I do have the original TV series' Viper and Cylon Raider kits, from Monogram... but looks like Revell had similar models. I've just seen a bunch of Galactica's Revell kits on eBay. You may wanna take a look.
Long time ago there was a guy in America that published a paper list of rare model kits and one could buy directly from him. I got many rarities. If I recall it right it was something like Greenmodels or JF Green... dunno, I think there was a "green" in the name. Good times. Now everything is digital :mrgreen:
