I was looking to add another ship to add to my fleet of ships so i decided to scratch build Cloud 9 from BSG. Its only going to be about 6 " long and i really don't know the scale but its in line with the rest of my ships.
I started with a clock bezel that had a concave shape for the bio-dome and the rest will be made of resin here's what i got so far .

You have patience I could only dream about to make something like that! Great work...

Those little cylindrical objects look like Star Trek warp nacelles; not too surprising, I guess. There were ST references all over the Colonial fleet (you can even see the Enterprise in one shot) as well as a reference to Gemenon Liner '1701' (hee hee).

Really cool stuff.... :bowdown: :thumbsup: :cylonclap:

These are finished shots of my scratch built Cloud 9. Looking to add a ship to my fleet that i working on, I recently made a bigger case to contain it all in has given more a little more room for more ships.
This ship was made to no particular scale. I used a blown up photo to get the size that I made it,there are not a lot of good photos of this ship to go by so some of it is just a good guess but it all fits together well and it adds to my the fleet.. In the picture of the fleet the hole behind and above the Galactica is for the Pegasus that i will add latter this year when it comes out.
