from "Battlestar Galactica" (2003-2009)
About the Design
In 2002, cable's Sci-Fi Channel sent shockwaves through genre fandom when it announced that it was going to "re-imagine" the classic 1970s space opera "Battlestar Galactica." When the mini-series/pilot premiered in 2003, virtually all who watched, including die-hard fans, were pleasantly surprised with how well producer Ron Moore's dark and paranoid "update" captured the basic look of the original series while catapulting its sensibilities directly into the 21st Century.
As before, the central "character" in the new BSG was the "Galactica" herself, here portrayed as an "obsolete" interstellar battlewagon and veteran of the previous Human/Cylon war. Retaining the same basic lines as the original BSG, the new ship was far more sophisticated in its execution thanks to the advances of modern CG.
About the Kit
The small but beautifully detailed all-resin model kit consisted five pieces: The main BSG body, the two hangar pylons, plus the display stand and "Galactica" emblem. A small decal set was also provided.
This model was built from an original issue.
