Pics of the pilots are coming today. They are being sculpted even now. There will be a choice Peter, to either have a female pilot, or male pilot. This is a cool option. Or to order an extrs for your fighter, $20.00. More pics today.

LOL!!
Just got off the phone with Tom DeSanto! Discussed our trip to meet him and present him with his viper, as well as his raider. Terri (warriorchemist), talked with him a while and had a real BITCH SESSION, LOL, about that "NEW GALACTICA!" YUCK!!!
He's sending more pics that I need to complete things. Sorry no pics of pilot that I'm ready to present, but soon. Am making mold for wings and waiting for the putty on pilots to dry so that I can begin the detailng. Tom said that the warriors jacket would be used on planet surfaces but that in flight, just the pressure suit that I'm sculpting the pilot in now would be worn, then jacket put on upon landing. Pics soon, I promise. Now...as Gordon said, I'm outta here and back to work . Now you kids git on home!

NEW ANNOUNCMENT- FEMALE CYLON SCULPTURES!!
Okay, after talking with Tom Desanto last night and telling him of my sculpting ideas, he told me something that I needed to hear, and well I've decided to release her as a kit.
It is a female CYLON! She's been shelved for over a year and Tom encouraged me to finish her and offer her to the fans. Heres a quick pic of the head alone, will show the rest as it progresses.


this just to make you all wonder what I've got going that you have'nt even seen yet.
You want this cast and offered?

Thats funny. I always had a thought to do a female cylon outfit for my wife. that way I could do a Baltar costume and we could go around together and she could nag me.

"Baltar... take out the garbage."
"Baltar... go plug the children in."
"Baltar... you lazy lout, WHEN will you ever destroy the humans???"

Just to clarify......Tom told you that his Continuation would have included female Cylons ?

If so...that's a very interesting idea. One that I had never considered.

I might speculate that if Cy (from The Return of Starbuck) returned to a Cylon Empire whether having seen genders at work...the development of Cylon women was drawn from his experiences ?

Cool pictures.......

NEW PICS

Heres the finalized laser cannons! They are cool, and look nice on the viper.
No, Tom did not mention that feamle cylons were in the continuation, but for me to finish this sculpt and that it gives him further ideas to contemplate. His continuation, is not a "has been" idea. This giant only sleeps.

Got a little "X-wing cannon" style action going on there with the guns, eh? Not a critique... just noticing more stylistic similarities to the X-wing cannons than to the original Viper cannons.

After looking carefully at the unpainted prototype, I've come to the conclusion that it doesnt look like X-wing cannons.

It looks more like a stretched-out water heater!

Just joking Michael! Looks delicious!

I was perusing the forum and was again reading WarriorChemist's "rude guy" thread when Mrs. Dawg came in and read over my shoulder (she thinks he was rude, too, BTW). I showed her this thread as I explained to her what was going on.

Understand that Mrs. Dawg is not a huge fan of Battlestar Galactica (although she shares my low opinion of GINO). But even she saw the design difference in the Viper models you guys are doing and GINO's, and recognized them as from the DeSanto production. (She asked "how old is he, anyway? Surely not old enough to know the difference.")



That's my wife!

Anyway - these look gorgeous, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product. So is Mrs. Dawg.

I am
Dawg

Heart A couple of questions...

Hello Dawg... Tell Mrs. Dawg I like her! I like both of you, of course! Anyway, please excuse my ignorance, but what is GINO? The only GINO I've ever heard of was a pizza place near my grandmother's house in Ohio! Great pizza, by the way! But something tells me that's not what you are talking about.

And Gordon... you figured out the water heater secret! Oh no! Just kidding, but what is an X-wing cannon?

Speaking of water heaters, I'm going to go put mine to work and wash some clothes in hot water.

Have a nice day everybody!

I will, WC, and thank you.

GINO = Galactica In Name Only.

It refers to the Moore/Eick de-creation (*juvenile snicker*) currently running on Sci-Fi.

I also had a GINO's Pizza in my neighborhood when I was young. The pizza was OK, but the hot pastrami sandwiches were to die for (this place pre-dated Quiznos by about 20 years). The place is now a Chinese restaurant....

*sigh*

Hey DOG!!!LONG TIME BUDDY!
I see you met my lady in arms? She's sweet, but that jerk really upset her bad. I think he's just jealous!
And still, the pilot sculpt is about ready to be shown, as well as the full complete buildup. The cockpit, I'm having troubles with, but will clear that up in a day or so. Am getting ready to do the raider as we have begun making our orders for materials! This is gonna be a cool year for Galactica models. And no more GINO models hopefully will appear!!! I love that...GINO! I'm gonna let DeSanto in on that!

And here I thought the subject of TNS BSG wasn't supposed to be brought up, let alone all this bashing of "GINO" going on....

Alright Griff!
Bashing of GINO, was not the real topic, it just turned out "funny" that's all.
I've never heard this, and it is amusing. Because even Hatch will tell everyone that TNS is just that, New, and with NO REAL resemblance to TOS, and that that is the whole idea behind the MOORE and whatever production. GINO! Get it!
Now, this all started with some JERK by the name of Max , LUCIFER MAXIMUS
that wanted to say rude things that had really upset our Terri (warriorchemist) that's what it is about, not about bashing GINO!

OK How 'bout we lose the term "GINO", please? There are those of us who like the show who post here and find the term as equally insulting as using the "N-Word" to describe a black person.

Please...?

Muffit Oops

I see that BlueSquad2001 posted under my name... Just wanted to clarify if it caused any confusion since he mentioned my name in the post.

We all have our opinions and they are all valid. Some will like TNS and some will not.... AND THAT IS OK!

I don't like it, and that is OK.

Griffworks does like it, and that is OK. He comes to our house and we don't even beat each other up or anything! Isn't that nice?

Now, on to the topic.... Wait a minute... what was it anyway?
Oh yes, what Michael is doing... working on the cockpit and the pilot and perhaps even the busty female pilot too, the canopy, about to pour a mold for one of the wings (for the third time, ugh! )and the Cylon head and who knows what else!

And now, I will go cook dinner.

Peace,
Terri

Okay all you fans of this thread!
Here's the final canopy master and it's about to be molded. The resin casting will have to be taken with an x-acto knife and remove the inner window area, which is simple to do.

Am working on the cockpit details and will try for pilot pics tonight, but it is a slow process. Very small detail work. Maybe not tonight Jim. But I'm still at it.

Was going to say it going to be hard to see out of this thing before you said 'x-acto'. BTW, there's always tomorrow.
