really nice schematics

Re: Ship Schematics
 
They're all nice, and all from the Original series too. The nuBSG lot just reused the old ships (aside from the battlestars, Vipers and Cylons...)

Nobody seems able ot get the 'head' of the Galactica right, IMHO. There's always something 'off' about it to me when compared to the footage from the series...:/:

My only contribution is this. Not a schematic, nor even complete yet, but I could work on it some more:

Designed and built for use in a game, rather than for gloy shot renders:nervous:

I like the basic concept. Look forward to seeing it when it is fleshed out

Thanks. It was based on some of your designs (the Kiowa and Protector mainly) and I envisage it as the next generation of colonial cruiser, much like the Tiger is a replacement for the Guardian.

[Shameless plugging]
For full details of this ship, please refer to my fanfic stories accessed here:
http://www.colonialfleets.com/forums...ad.php?t=13145

The story arc is now into the fourth story, as the Thunderchild (the only example of this ship class left) is currently ripping the Blue Sun Alliance (Firefly) fleet apart... with a technological advantage so massive it's almost not funny. Almost:devil:

The way you have the bays attached it great. I don't know why some one has not thought of this before. It has given me some ideas
Thanks :)

Thanks for the images and links, I keep meaning to improve my modelling skills by starting work on something like the MkVII Viper, but I've been struggling to find decent 3-views for a starting point.

I'd love to use one of those shots on a flier for Blackstar Squadron! Figured it would be best to ask for permission!

Too bad we can't get all that have been done and put them in a reference gallery
What do you think Darrell?
We have probably 20. It would be a nice place for people to go to see the BSG ships in all their glory
:)

We do have a schematics section.

I also have to ask about credits on these. I noticed the Viper in the first post looks VERY familiar.... as it's mine :)

thanks in advance:salute:

the objective is to start building the model of the galactica , i am gathering kits ,base on the amazing work of so many of you in the studio scale modelers

ZAP, welcome to the Fleets! Merry Christmas!

There's some history you don't know that will help answer your question. A year or so ago, our hosting server suffered a catastrophic crash and we lost a lot of our material. We've put out the word to re-load, but some of that hasn't happened yet. If the individual links don't go anywhere, it's likely we haven't had that restored yet.

Hi Zap. Here is a link to the high-res raster version of the schematic. If you are in need of the original vector file, I have made a version in PDF format. All I ask of anyone who downloads it that they don't use it to make money off of. I found a couple sites who took it to make t-shirts. To their credit, they took the sale pages down when I tagged them for it, but I would sooner not have to put myself through that again.

As for going back and re-establishing all the links I've submitted over the years, I wouldn't even know where to start on such a monumental undertaking. Is there a way of filtering not just what threads we've posted in but also the threads where links are broken and need to be repaired? That might help quicken things up a bit.

Thanks much!

-Jim

hi JIm , i reply 2 minutes ago to your other post , asking you if you could send me the file , and now i see that you already send me the link ...thank you so much :rotf: , the sharing of this type of forum is incredible

how did you make this schematics ? did you make the 3d and just export the views ? because the drawing is amazing , can you make transversal sections and longitudinal profiles ?

once again thanks for your wonderful work put at the disposal of all :salute:

:LOL: Heh...you make it sound so advanced! :)

No, I did it the old-fashioned way - I took a boatload of reference photos I got from Jim C after he finished his Galactica and went through each of them, trying to eyeball the details, as well as compensate for perspective-distortion ("foreshortening" in the art world). Not long into the project, Kurt Kuhn over at Modeler Magic got a hold of and released a metric ton of photos of the original SS miniature, which I used to finish it up. The overall outline of the schematics is from Jim's build which has a slightly narrower main body and less-pronounced angle at the rear of the head than the original, but I would say it's about 90-95% accurate.

In short, everything was "hand-drawn" using Adobe Illustrator CS1. No CG-to-vector assistance. Probably took me over 400 hours to make - that's an extremely rough estimate. It's been so long, I really can't remember how long it took me, to be honest.

Unfortunately, no. Because this was not taken from a CG model, but drawn in a purely 2D environment, cross sections of any kind really aren't possible.

Thanks very much for the kind words. They are appreciated. :salute:
