CYGNUS ===BS42
Welcome to the next installment of my obsession......THE CYGNUS...
About this creation
























..THE CYGNUS HAS BEEN DECOMMISSIONED ...
12 April 2010








This is my version of the Battlestar Cygnus. I have slightly made it huge and had a lot of sleepless nights figuring out some details





This beast measures 1700mm x 710mm and weighs 12.5kg and this creation contains 9815 parts. I managed to construct this one lighter than my Galactica by using a different technique but the size of it makes it hard to move around easily





It is entirely self supported and the only mistake was the stand was to small and not far enough to the rear of the ship.





I still have kept the Galactica and now the Cygnus dwarfs it and they are not to scale with each other but the small shuttle craft is.



Unfortunately the Baseship was attacked by the colonials "can't they leave the toasters alone "



by your COMMAND destroy the Cygnus .......

Thank you for having a look and stay tuned for the next model and some fun action scenes with the Baseship and the Cygnus

Quoting El Barto ! So, the Cygnus bites the dust, eh? Well, it was a fine ship with a brave crew. So say we all! BTW, I posted a question on the BSG group discussion, any thoughts on those ships?
Yes she had a short life but a fine destruction. Can always blame the toasters, Left a posting for you. Do as I did make it up just keep the basic form.I'm still stoked at the response. Thanks for your response... So say we all..try google bsg blueprints, plans under images

Quoting Ruud Hoogmoed I'm a bit shocked the basestar didn't survive! Fortunately the Galactica is still there. With the Cygnus you've build another huge one, must have cost you a lot of time. Very impressive! With these sizes it's pretty difficult to get it selfsupporting. You've found also some new ideas for details, the logo at the landingstrip looks great. Good work Garry!
Thank you for your comment Ruud. Yes sad the Baseship ( pesky colonials ) had to go but it's parts went to a new place as I redevelop my lego skills I hope to improve the models I construct and soon this one must fall for the next big ship But yet the Galactica will remain
