Battlestar Galactica V2: Final Galactica
This is my sophomore attempt at creating Battlestar Galactica from the reimagined series. I named this Final Galactica because I hope this will be my last attempt at this subject. The "ribs" proved to be a nightmare and I ended up using at least 5 different techniques to create them. I also took quite a bit of artistic license - I tried repeadtedly to duplicate the gentle curves of the Galactica but the shapes combined with ribs were not Lego friendly. I dont know how many pieces I used to creat this one but it was quite a few since she's mostly comprised of plates and tiles. She measures just over 37 inches long. Oh and I almost forgot: Thanks to Legostein for the Colonial One instructions on Brickshelf. I had to substitute tan for white since I didnt have the necessary white peices but I think it turned out pretty well and almost to exact scale with Galactica.

great job man! i am excited to see people are still building these after the series ended. Great idea on the engines to go SNOT. That is the part that is least accurate on mine. I experimented with using panels for the armor as well, but ended up using grills instead.

Quoting Rico Destero Looks great sir! Question, is there someway u hae blueprints or willing to make another for sale? Let me know please! rdhouse09@Hotmail.com rico
Wow, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I built most it from scratch without LDD or any other program. I tried to start out on computer but never could get all of the angles right so I dont have blueprints. As for selling this one, I put too much time and engergy into it to let it go just yet. Sorry but for now she's unique. Youll be the first to know if I have a change of heart.

I am a huge fan of the show and I think you did an amazing job here. The effort you put into the ribs really payed off and I just don't think you could have done the shape any better with the restrictions that LEGO bricks have in that scale. Fantastic work!

Very clever use of parts to create the textures along the hull. Definitely the best Galactica I've seen!

Hey, this is freakin cool. I loved that show! You did a really good job of re creating the Galactica. THis is such a wonderful MOC, too bad all the little people inside are bickering with killing eachother, and that some of them are toasters. LOL Truly superb building.

Very impressive! I'm taken aback just by the sheer size of it, but adding the perfect shape and the amount of detail makes this ship a true masterpiece.

Wow, that's beautiful. The shape is near perfect and the ribbing is something I've not seen done a lot.

Loving the scale here, this has got to be one of the best Galactica models I have seen. You nailed the ribbing/texture. Nice technique, good work all around! ~dave

It's hard to finally realize that it's a micro. But D_A_M_N That is amazing!

Wow! I love it! I feel that a little artistic license is fine when the results look as good as this!

If I could give you a hundre battlestars instaed of only 5, I certainly would. I'm a huge BSG fan, and this plagarism of yours is ... Leaving me in awe. I call it "plagarism" because you copied it exactly from the show! I can't see the artistic license you took; it looks deadly accurate to me. The ribbing design is ingenious I might add. And your Colonial One displayed portside really sets it off nicely, and reminds us of the sheer scale of this behemoth, both in "real life", and,...in real life here. I'm sure it's bittersweet in a way to have it finished, as I experienced the same feelings when I built a Raptor near the series finale. kudos, Kudos, and again I say unto thee, KUDOS!

This SHIP is just a beautiful redition of the Battlestar and deserves to be among the pantheon of great SHIPs to look to for inspiration here on MOCpages. Congratulations sir! ~ Chris.

Sophomore attempt? I think not, this is really quite good and quite accurate I think.

Wow, really nice! I've considered doing the new Galactica for the last two years, but the unusual ribbing design always held me back. I think, for the scale here, you've done a fantastic job on capturing not only the form, but the texture of the ship. A phenomenal tv series, and a worthy MOC! Well done!
