BATTLESTAR GALACTICA 1/1930 HALF STUDIO SCALE RESIN KIT

 Kit Price – $675 with Optional Insurance – $30

First seen in Battlestar Galactica the Miniseries in 2003 re-imagined universe and based off the original 1978 series of the same name.

Galactica (BS-75) entered service in the early years of the first Cylon War, under the command of Commander Silas Nash. During her service, Galactica formed a part of Battlestar Group 75 (BSG 75), a Colonial force described by series creator Ronald D. Moore as a mixed force of vessels somewhat similar to a US Navy carrier strike group. After graduating from the Colonial Military Academy, William Adama‘s first posting was to Galactica as a Raptor pilot.

At the time of the Cylon Attack, Galactica was fifty years old and was undergoing formal decommissioning from the Colonial Fleet following her retirement as an operational vessel. The ship had been due to become a museum commemorating the first Cylon War and an educational center, with much of its outer armor and a number of weapons having been stripped

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA 1/1930 SCALE 75cm RESIN KIT

Prototype BSG Kit

Modeled directly from the ZOIC CGI series base mesh this is the kit every BSG fan or collector must have.

What you will get as a kit will be detail down to the last panel and even more since a lot of detail wasn’t seen in the series.

Consisting of cast parts as well as direct resin printed parts it will be an easy build with the main sections slotting and screwing into one another.

The belly slots together with the option to glue them together.Screws can then be added to the 3 spine sections and the nose/jaw and engine parts sliding and screwing into place.

Adding lighting will be easy since all the parts are made to accommodate wiring and led’s

Here are photos of the complete kit minus a few parts left off due to disassembly for adding lighting at a later stage.

Weight – 5.5kg

Length – 75cm

 

My Youtube channel for this kit has 14 instruction videos. I highly recommend
watching all the vids and reading the instructions before starting your build.

Battlestar Galactica Re-imagined 2003 3D Model

Thanks to Lee Stringer (CG Supervisor Season 1, Assets and Modeling Sup Miniseries) for doing these awesome renders.

BSG Re-imagined 2003 3D Mesh on stand

Due out in 2021 this is every Battlestar Galactica model collectors dream.

This is the modified 3D Mesh used to print the Master parts. I placed it on a stand to show how it will look on display with the included stand plates that are designed to fit between the lower ribs and slot into a base (Not supplied)

Designed as a modular kit this model will clip and screw together with minimal glue needed on the main structure.

The Decals for this kit will need to be ordered directly from Tango Papa decals as I wont be holding any sets as part of the kit.

The red Squares are reference to clearly show the Small Guns locations.

I designed this kit to easily add lighting, there will be an official
remote control lighting kit made by Brickstuff lighting in the USA.

Battlestar Galactica Re-imagined 2003 Blood and Chrome Version

Due to numerous requests for the Blood and Chrome version I converted the standard version to its earlier glory with full armor and weapon compliment.

This will be an add on kit sold separately from the standard kit.

The red Squares are reference to clearly show the Small Guns locations.

The conversion will require numerous modifications by sanding, once done converting back will be impossible. For this additional parts will have to be purchased.

Resin Printed Parts

Battlestar Galactica Re-imagined 2003 Resin Master prints

These are the master prints printed with resin on a Formlabs Form 3 printer using Grey modeling resin.

All the support points were manually added to ensure the detailed areas were left untouched.

The parts were modified and combined as needed before molds were made and casts poured.
