In Classic BSG they are the same model ...... just lit differently as far as I know .... you see more hull design on the landing bay of the PEGASUS

The Pegasus had quad landing bays, more decking over the ribbing, and a different engine configuration. Internally it was more advanced in that it had a full fabrication capability for Vipers.

I only got a slight look at the Valkyrie - did anyone notice which class it was more like (looked like a 3rd design but I wasnt sure).

I think this was in regards to the original series(?). In the original series, the same model was used for both the Galactica, as was for the Pegasus. No battlestar shown in the original series was of different configuration

Quite true. Always bothered me, too. No different models, much less support warships.

Well, I never minded the battlestars that much. The Galactica is an extremely powerful type of warship, so it makes sense it would be the backbone of the colonial fleet. And, honestly, they spent their budget building the galactica model, probably. Well spent tho, its a classic, the best designed sci-fi vessel, in my opinion

I dont know - it bothered me. Even TOS Trek on a shoestring budget occasionally did a new model now and then. I look at the Ravenstar cruisers (really want to kitbash a BIG version of one or two of those!) and think that it couldnt have strained them that much to do something of the sort.

I always thought of the Battlestar as a primary combat ship, like a carrier... but a carrier always has escourt ships - some of which should have come along with the Big G when she pulled out.

Several excellent ships! And much to the point - they'd have been easily made cannon ships for the series.

True, but on the cheap. The original Klingon battlecruiser model was carved out of wood, and painted! Sadly, ABC didn't think BSG needed any additional budget, so we never saw other types of Colonial warships. And since these involved alot more complexity than carved wood, they just weren't happening. What Larson could do today with CGI!
