My angle is about 89.9. It's smooth (Lightwave modelers should get that )

Yes, progress!

I know you and the family have been through a lot just lately, don, but it's always nice to see you were born to do!

You're my favourite CG modeller, and from me that's the highest praise you can get!

Wow thanks Peter....humbled I am.

I appreciate the praise but I hope if this movie talk Is for real i can maybe get lucky enough to throw my artistic hat into the ring. This ship deserves it since it's been a pain to produce accurately.

Don, if it does end up being more than just talk this time, they'd be fools not to use you.

I mean this as a compliment !!! Are you serious ??? you're going to that extent ??? it's an amazing model/mesh.

Is it the goal to make it an exact mesh that matches the real model ?

Amazing work ...

I think it's great! It's almost like archiving it! A true digital model !!!! It's monumental task though, My skills are no where near yours but, do you need some help ?

I'll add this too! the real thing, the actual BATTLESTAR GALACTICA model from the tv series, is about 40 miles away from me ... The person that owns lives that close by!

Get a measuring tape and a very high digital camera. Then what Don needs measured, do it and get photos (it may help him fix that out-of-place polygon)

Merlin... Rent a 3d laser scanner and ask the owner if you could digitize the filming model. Make the scans public, and all guessing in 3d modeling is over. 3d printers could also use the data to create exact copies .

He won't let me see it, and pretty much no one else ! I know it may sound like he isn't really the nicest person in the world, But his reasons for this are legitimate. Think of how many fans are out there, and all want to see it!

I've exchanged a few e-mails with him in the past, he's a good person, and I understand his reasoning, If I was in his position, going by some of the stuff he explained, I would be the same way.

I wrote the post, sort of ...because of the irony ... Think about it, I live 40 miles away from the real Battlestar Galactica !!!! You wonder where all these things end up, and my favorite one, is that close ... go figure!
