Default Re: Ralph McQuarrie Cylon Basestar

I have finished my models of Ralph McQuarrie's concept designs for Battlestar Galactica, after many tries, I have worked on not only the Battlestar but also the Basestar, Starhound Viper as they were called in the novel and Cylon Raiders, I also plan on modelling a shuttlecraft to fit this style and it will be my last CGI model for a long time.

So in some ways, I am finishing my CGI modelling journey where I started here at Colonial Fleets with Battlestar Galactica when back in the early 2000s I made my first steps into it with Turbospace3d with the help of Steve Wilson.
