Big Grin Models I've Built

I just thought that I should probably start my own thread showing models that I have built (at least the BSG based ones) instead of taking over someone else's thread.

So here is a Figure that I have recently completed.
These are some pictures of my character and namesake, Captain Inanna 'Wild Card' Lunaryn.
She is a 1/24 figure. Mastered by Jesse Meyers.

Her Left Side
Her Right
Her face
Close Front
Her Squadron Patch
Full Front
Her Jacket
The Base

The base has a magnet under the Squadron Art, and the figure has a steel rod running horizontally in her boot. That way she will stay in one place, but the art won't be marred.
The squadron is also a creation of mine.
Both will be used in an story/animation I am working on.

Enjoy.

Namaste
Inanna

I have another set of models I have finished recently. I will be posting them here soon.
It's late right now and I need to get some sleep.

To give a quick heads-up, one of them is a redo of the Hawkwind.
Another is a "What if" subject (I don't want to give that away just yet. ).

Namaste all.
Inanna

Okay, here we go.

This is my redo of the Hawkwind.
I was not pleased with the first build I did.
So I stripped it down and redid the model. I cleaned up the seams, and tried a new- to me- technique called pre-shading (basically painting areas darker before adding a base coat). I also added visible guns to it as well. They make the ship look better still. More "functional".
I also added more damage to her, as well as 'repaired areas' (Cleaner squares of hull plating).

The Backstory
This is the Colonial destroyer Hawkwind. She is one of the few Colonial navy ships that survived the destruction of the 12 Colonies by the Cylons. They had been scheduled to meet with the 24th Fleet (her designated Fleet, hence the yellow stripes) and patrol for anything untoward that might hinder the Peace Conference - any militant groups who didn't want the peace to occur and rabble such as that.

After a “Divine Accident” with their navigational computer caused them to be late to their rendezvous (many of her crew believe that it was the Lords of Kobol that were protecting them), they arrived to see that the fleet was virtually decimated. They fought off the remaining Raiders and destroyed two of their refueling ships that were nearby as well as a few transports. They received a few distress calls and soon they were able to rescue about 2000 personnel-out of 12,000-from the remains. Also rescued were six Vipers and their pilots. Unfortunately, two of those pilots died from their wounds. The Hawkwind heard a call from another battlestar that survived the genocide and was rendezvousing at Virgon. They met the Olympia, as well as the light battlestar Vuldex, and assisted them, plus 120 other civilian ships, with repairs and replenishment before leaving the Colonies in search of a new home.

She is shown here about 8 quatrons later (approximately 8 months). She has received some damage, and the most severe (actual hull penetrations) have been patched up. She now has six Vipers as her standard compliment as well as four shuttles. Though she has no Viper launch facilities, they take off from the main entrance. Not as fast as from a battlestar, but they are still used for support.


Here's a Beauty shot.

I hope you like this. I am very pleased with how this one finally came out.

Default Re: Models I've Built

Here's the "What if..." build I did.
The Colonial Raider.

It's a Raider from the new BSG series. I'm not a fan of the new series, but I had a thought when I saw this 1/72 scale model from 'Black Sun' models.
"What if one of the Raiders (being that they are entities themselves) decides to defect to the Colonials and help them fight against the Cylons? What would it's story be, and what would it look like?"

So here is it.
I present DAV-1D:

This is the Cylon Raider designated Destroyer, Aerospace Vessel-series 1, version D, or DAV-1D.

DAV-1D went against his programming, and 'propaganda' the Cylons had been feeding him. He did not believe that the Human race was one that needed to be eradicated. He felt that they had every right to exist. He also did not hold with the One God of the Cylons instead of Many Gods the Colonials believe.

The information the Cylon Overseers continued to feed was that the Humans were trying to exterminate the Cylon peoples. What he observed while on patrols, or during dogfights, was that the humans rarely ever attacked them. The Humans always sent their fighters out to defend themselves only. A race that was trying to exterminate another would not be fighting defensively constantly.

He started to disbelieve his Overseers. Finally, during another attack against the “Scourge of the Cylons”, he made his choice. He turned upon his kind. In front of on-coming Vipers he turned and attacked the Raiders nearest him.

The Colonial Pilots were stunned. They did not know what was happening. But they did see that one Raider was attacking the others and leaving the Vipers and the Fleet alone.
Once the attack had been driven off, DAV-1D followed the Vipers slowly from behind. Still confused and unsure of this 'Rouge' Raider's motive, Kara Thrace turned to face him down. As she did so, he slowly performed a roll and exposed his “belly” to her. Stunned, she decided to escort him to the Galactica's landing bay. He made no threatening moves to any of the ships or pilots.

After successfully communicating with him and discovering his motives, DAV-1D was inducted into the fleet (under a watchful eye for a time), and been given the name 'David'. After this, he changed the appearance of his 'eye' to that of blue, both to distinguish him from other Raiders, but also to show his more cooperative intentions toward humans. He has proven himself on many occasions- as his kill markings show- as well as saving many pilots, including 'Starbuck'. Because of that Kara has accepted him to the point of allowing him to be her wingman.

He continues to fight for the Colonials, and is one of the many heroes in the survival of the human race.

On display base.

The kit used for this is the 'Black Sun' 1/72 scale 'Galactic Enemy' kit. It's very nicely cast. There are a few minor symmetry issues, but nothing too bad. Cleanup was pretty easy. There really wasn't any flash (mostly on the gun barrels), and the seam lines were minor. A little bit of sanding and they were gone.

I painted the parts first, then I attached them. The main body is painted Light Gray. I painted the engines Light Ghost Gray, Light Sea Gray, and Gunship Gray. The guns, lower vents, and 'mouth' are Gunmetal, as is the inner scanner 'Eye' section. The eye itself it Reaper Ice Blue and Dragon Blue.

I used some spare 1/48 Viper decals for the markings. Being that he is a recent addition to the Colonial Fleet his stripes are not as worn and flaked as the Vipers. However, he has experienced some of that, but only very minor. I also used the kit-supplied wing decals (they add a nice contrast to the Galactica Red stripes). The kill markings come from the JBOT sheet.

For the panel lines I used Tamiya tape, a pencil, and a lot of patience. I also used ground graphite for the weathering on him, as well as some of the near hit scuff marks.

Even though I am not into the NuBSG, I think he's Frakkin' Cool!

Love and Light all.

Namaste

Thank you very much, mjayne, I appreciate your comments.
I had fun building him.

Now, with Moebius Models having one in 1/32 scale maybe I will make a larger scale version. Although I would need to find someone who could make the scanner eye in Blue LEDs.
They sell a scanner kit for it, but only with Red LEDs.
Who knows.

Cheers, and thank you again.
