Battlestar Galactica 1978 Ralph McQuarrie's Concept Battlestar 3D

It has been a long time since I last posted any model work, so.....

This is my version of Ralph McQuarrie's concept Battlestar Galactica, detailing was inspired by the physical model from the show, and this is the third time I have had a go at building it, it is 99% finished.
Dimensions
Length 9142'4" ft / 2786.6 m
Height 1210'6" ft / 368.9m
around 109 decks (not that it has 109 decks but could stack up that if you removed the engines
Width 4296'9" ft / 1309.6m
