2003 series Cylon Raider

Next up was the wing vent... this is a much deeper item than the one on top of the wing. Of course The detail is wrong for what I want... the outline of the opening shape drawn on...

The molded detail filled with more stretched sprue..

I was thinking about cutting away such a large area and wanted to reinforce the wing... wouldn't want the front of the wing breaking off... plus I needed the detail area to be deeper... so I cut out the shape from a sheet of .060 and glued it onto the inner wing...

The opening was cut out and I verified I had enough depth for the mod I planned

So... sneaking in with a Christmas day update !!  :whistle:  ....  Merry Ho Ho to all my LSP family ! May there be gifts of plastic, aftermarket, and for those who enjoy such, good 'spirits' to be enjoyed !!

 

The build continues...Moving aft on the bottom wing... seams being filled and EVERYTHING has to go....all the detail is wrong...

A new chisel blade does good work... including on my finger.. nice stab that ensures my DNA will be inside the model :ninja: ...

Whilst waiting for glue to dry I did a few other things... including trimming and sanding off this detail.. which revealed a hole where a locator pin would go... this was filled with sprue..

After sanding and filling, the detail area's were drawn on.....

The weapons bay cut out and the raised detail made and glued on.

Adding raised detail and cleaning up boo boo's... using liquefied plastic from the kit sprues as filler....

Waiting on info for the weapons bays before I can put the lower wing panel on and finish up the wing.. but progress is being made ! Hopefully I'll get in another small update before the new year.

 

Happy Christmas all !!

This is a fun build to watch. I have all the BG DVD's, all seasons, all movies.

 

Sad they Jumped the shark with the Starbuck thing. Show went to hell. Oh well.

 

Great work going on here and I have learned from this thread quite a bit. :)

 

 



look like cymbal "boom" stands

 

 



That's what I'm thinking too, Shawn. Seems like an expensive way to display aircraft models. I like the fact that they're counter weighted.

 

 



A few pics of Jim's setup... he probably told me what the stands were, but that was years ago....

 

[/url

 

 

 

 

Hopefully someone knows more about them than me !!

 

Cheers

Yes, cymbal stands. And Heavy Duty cymbal stands at that. He uses heavy stands to mount light models, and I use light stands to mount heavy cymbals. :huh:

Glad you are a fan of BSG and glad I can pass on some tips ! I remember seeing the original many times in the theater... like the 2003 version too. I have no issue with women taking male roles and some of the acting was top notch in my opinion.

 

Cymbal stands ?.. well, they do support the models nicely !!

 

Cheers
