Started the landing bay decals got the ribs section done on the top, had to do the top section so i could add the little piping going down the sides of the bays. Very time consuming but it makes it look nice.

DAMN impressive set of decals!

Are they waterslide? Do they have a lot of "trim" on them you have to cut off or are they precise cut for ease of placement?
Please advise where you got them - wish they hat a set of that quality for the BSG1 GALACTICA. Anyone know of a set?

:nBSGsalute:

Yes they are water slid and yes you have to cut them to size your self and i got them here. http://www.acreation...fault.asp#117-1

Just amazing, Cylon75! Just out of curiosity, what do you charge for building something like this?

With the amount of time this has taken, I'm not sure i would and it would be way to costly for someone to afford. I sold the 1st one i did for $260 Plus i don't have the extra time. But Thanks.

Here's the finished shots of my 3rd Galactica build that i have done. I did this ship in a early battle damage look from season 1-2. The modification to this ship are, The armor plates have been made to look like they sit on top of the ship ,the head has been lowed to the level of the rest of the ship the center piece of the head has made smaller. Along with added antenna's in the front. Added a complete photo etch set ( Name plates, Landing bay ribs ,Museum windows and garage section inserts). Added resin turret's. Lite up the head, both landing bays the garage section (between the bays and ship) And the engines lite up with the ability to turn off the 2 center lights. To top it off it has a Acreation deluxe decal kit that dose between the ribs as well as the armor plates.

None lite pictures: (Some are taken with the flash and some are not)
