New Studio Scale Models and other Great models on the way!!
 
Hey everyone,
Just have to drop a quick line and announce that Michael miles artistry has been too busy the past year and we are still not caught up as of yet. Been in galleries and expanding my artistry business with blueprinting and scratch building masters to mold and introduce to the Battlestar collectors world. Our models are reasearched from hundreds of photos and exact measurements are sized just right. Blueprinted and then of to be molded. The first one to be offered is the studio scale desanto viper. Lots of photos and research went into this and here she is about finished. She will be more affordable in price compared to the other resin kits and the detail is correct. It will feature pilot with upgraded warrior helmet and detailed interior that we suggest that you fiber optic. The price $ 95.00
The shuttle will be 10 inches in length and will feature quite a bit of the major details but left a bit bare for the modelers to add their own details and have fun searching out the various parts to complete. We are also going to offer a 29inch galactica, more on this, with pics later. Pre-orders will soon be taken on e-bay through seller i.d. zombiebutt. Read our rating and you’ll know for fact that we deliver the goods. See you on the launch deck!
See ya on the launch deck. :D http://tinypic.com/fy1gkx.jpg

Well, those are looking quite nice. Keep us appraised of the progress. I'm in for a desanto viper when it's ready.

Is this an officially licensed product ? Will you apply to Tom DeSanto to have it endorsed ?

Also, what is the art under the Viper is then first picture ? The detail on the lady's face is excellent.....please tell us more.....

Best of luck......

Partial Answer
 
Hi Ernie... I don't know anything about licensing but I do know something about the painting. BlueSquad2001 is the boyfriend I mentioned in my first post. He is working on that painting right now, sitting directly behind me. It's something he made up to look like a poster to advertise for the fleet. He got the idea from old WWII recruit posters and thought it would be fun to make one for BG. He thinks he will have it finished by 9:00 tonight but I think he is being too optimistic! LOL! He also started an oil painting last year but never finished it. When he gets ready, he'll get it back out. I'll ask him to post an image of this painting when he gets it completed. The woman in the painting now has hair and part of her outfit is done.

Thanks for your interest. This really keeps BlueSquad2001 motivated to do more.

Took a photo for you... Hope you like it.

Thanks for posting the image. This is an amazing talent you (or your boyfriend?) have. Have you ever considered creating a comic or animation ?

WarriorChemist November 21st, 2005 07:03 PM

Thank You
 
Thanks Ernie... It's my boyfriend's work, not mine. I wish I had that kind of talent. I paint too but nothing like this. One time we thought he was going to get to do a comic, but it turned out to be somebody just trying to rip him off. Maybe he could answer your questions better than I am, but he is busy painting right now. LOL...

Good to see you again Bluesquad ;)

Keep up the good work sweetie!

BlueSquad2001 November 21st, 2005 08:06 PM

AMBERSTAR!!! ;) Good to see you again. I'm glad your still here. :salute:
Strikeleader?? :wtf: You've been busy yourself.

Best of luck...... And Ernie, there are no (OFFICIALLY LICENSED) Galactica model products available period at this point and time. You can visit StarShip Modeler.com and buy StudioScale Vipers $150.00 and Cylon Raiders $350.00 as well as a few other things related, but they are ALL fan made. That's why they are cast in resin, but so much higher detail and quality than MASS produced and licensed kits. Get ready for your DeSanto pre-order... :rotf: WE DELIVER!

I'm shooting for a projected finish point of 11/25/05, and will announce it here. ;)

Charybdis November 22nd, 2005 06:42 AM

Wow, that painting is pretty awesome as are the models!!! I'd also say that the female warrior in the picture needs a slightly 'larger' warrior tunic!!!!

BlueSquad2001 November 22nd, 2005 10:04 AM

Okay Warrior, here are close-ups of the engine details, with size comparison of TOS Studio Scale. It's a little bigger and longer, but sleeker. :)

Darrell Lawrence November 22nd, 2005 10:18 AM

Ah yes... yours goes straight instead of curved like mine does-

http://www.colonialfleets.com/galler...nto_viper0.jpg

The studio scale doesn't have it fully defined yet, but shows a hint of curvature (lower left corner)

http://www.colonialfleets.com/galler...iper-model.jpg

While the full scale model doesn't have it defined at all yet

http://www.colonialfleets.com/galler...er-build08.jpg

And the painting does not show it at all, so it's pretty much useless :LOL:

Darrell Lawrence November 22nd, 2005 10:19 AM

After looking at those again, mine looks like it *SHOULD* have gone straight. :/:

BlueSquad2001 November 22nd, 2005 10:21 AM

Give me a call, I sent an e-mail with number. Let's chat. :salute:

peter noble November 22nd, 2005 03:46 PM

A 29-inch Galactica?

Wow, that's over 1/3 the size of the filming miniature.

I want one, now!

BlueSquad2001 November 22nd, 2005 04:01 PM

We have gotten started on the 29 inch as well as the 40inch and we are deciding which to do? I want to do both, but keep costs down. The 29 inch will be priced at $300.00 not bad for an enormous undertaking such as the Galactica. We have to make sure of the details as well as the correct angles. The 40 inch will be around 375.00 per model, but that is real heavy resin casting. :salute:
And yes, these are LOW PRICED! Most people would charge many times more than this. :wtf:

spcglider November 23rd, 2005 07:00 AM

I see, like me, you've opted to be reasonable in your pricing! Good on ya! :salute:

All the stuff I'm making... the props and odd bits of ephemera... are all being done because I CAN and I want to
keep the original series alive for the next crop of fans who come along. That, and making sure that the powers-that-be aren't
ignoring the fandom alltogether. When a fandom keeps generating cool stuff like those models, it goes LONG way to keeping old folks interested
and attracting new folks to the fandom.

Good work there!

BTW: I prefer the curve.

-Gordon

BlueSquad2001 November 23rd, 2005 09:16 AM

The "curve" is definately there. But it is beautifully subtle. Wiat till all of you see what Warrior and I are working together to achieve. :D

What you're doing Gordon, and the other BSG TOS websites, and anyone working on art, or stories or fan films are all keeping the dream alive.

You had to be around at the time, but before Galactica, there was nothing of that scale on TV, not Star Trek, Land of the Giants, anything. BSG was an event, and something that's never really been attempted since.

BlueSquad2001 November 23rd, 2005 01:31 PM

Thank You Peter. And can you help with my other posting in the Art-Un-Finished about the Mc Galactica Drawings? :salute:

Most of my magazine collection is in storage which features stuff like that is in storage but I'll dig around.

Best,

Peter

BlueSquad2001 November 23rd, 2005 02:12 PM

Thanks Peter, I really appreciate this help from you. It'll put newer galactica models in the world for fans to enjoy. :salute: :colonial:

This attempt at communicating is futile at best. But I tried. :salute:

Griffworks November 23rd, 2005 08:13 PM

So, Michael....

Is it done yet? When can I come over and fire the turbos on the thing.? :D

Yes Amberstar, I'm home and LOVE IT HERE! You're wonderful and it's nice to have you as a friend. Glad you like it. It's affordable too ;) It's got heat and air, leather bucket seats, complete communication surround sound, adjustable harness for just that right feel with full turbos engaged, tinted laser-proof glass, and just the right shade of orangie-redish color to the stripes. All for the low cost of 95.00+shippingand handling. :rotf: ;)
