About this creation
THIS IS THE SECOND BUILD OF THIS MAGNIFICENT BASESTAR.

======================================================




Inspired by the brilliant LDD creation from Curtis Black.







The Cylons have returned with a awesome come back and a sleeker vessel compared to my first attempt.





I have given the Cylons a raw deal by concentrating on the colonial fleet so this build has been on my mind for some time.
I have been acquiring Lego elements for some time and these parts added a special touch to its overall appearance.







I have modified some areas to make it stream lined and more rounded in appearance from the original design.

As the radial arms were being constructed it became evident that they had to be solid Lego to add strength and prevent them from sagging.

The centre core is designed to rotate as did my first Re-imaged Basestar.






Dimensions


1100mm long x 660mm width x 190mm high 6.08 kilograms
Or
43.3 inches long x 26 inches x 7.5 inches high 13.4 pounds




Thank you for looking.

Quoting Michal Hennel I wonder how you could join internal parts of ship in such complicated angles. I see hinged bricks on lateral parts , but other framework must be genial :D Stunning work , indeed.
Thank you Michael for taking the time to look at this build and it was hard to create the internal structure but it is almost solid Lego for strength and stability. Thank you for noticing. Cheers

Quoting El Barto ! You know, as I look at some of these shots compared to the show, I wonder if maybe a few focused lights might enhance the look of it. Darken the room a bit, and a few LED lights focused on the central axis. Just a thought, because this is just about perfect!
ARRRRR me hearty. YES this is the coolest Toasted build yet..... BUT WAIT..... .....There are more cooler designs to come..... I hope soon but who knows.... I agree darker images and lights would be the coolest of effects but Toasters just cook toast and don't need windows. HAHA.... Cheers

Quoting Cody van der linde What is gyprock?
Thank you Cody.... Gyprock is just a brand named product, the container contained a glue compound for gluing plasterboard to timber house frame work. Hope it helps, it had nothing to do with this build except as a stand. Cheers

Quoting El Barto ! I think the best shot is that one under "The Cylons have returned" Just like the show! Maybe zoom in a little? Play a few notes on the piano? Anyway, I was looking up close at the second of the 'detail images'. Did you flip those little hinge pieces to go studs up one way and down the other?
Thanks .ElBarto the great.... You don't have to give away all my secrets... Having the music or series playing while I take photos. HAHAHA bet you do the same or at least have it playing through your head. 2 days to GO.....OH YES... YES to your question and sent you other answers too...

Quoting Mark Rodrigues Just brilliant! Wonderful use of wedges & curves to from the ship's hull I for one know that this is never as straight forward as it looks. I also like how you clustered those 1 x 1 clip plates for added detail. Thanks for the 'WOW!'

Quoting El Barto ! Impressive achievement, Dude! I remember when that LLD was posted, you seemed pretty interested, and now here it is for real! The contouring works well, and it looks like the structure is sound. No popping or cracking this time, right? Awesome!
No pops or cracking and no stand. It did that as I was building it so. Made it easy to rectify the issue as I went. More Toaster builds to be created but that is another day. Cheers for now and congrats for your latest release.

Quoting Ruud Hoogmoed Hi Garry, Great job! You keep the spirit alive. It makes it easier to survive until the release of "Blood & Chrome". You've faced the challenge to get it smooth, slim and strong enough to prevent it from bending. Congratulations!
Greetings Ruud long time no see. Thank you for your supportive comment. Well I do thank you for the update for blood and chrome, now I am looking forward to the release. When are you updating the magnificent Galactica you are constructing? Cheers for now
