1978 BASESHIP WIP-001
CYLON BASESHIP 1978. This is a part greedy project. .... WELCOME ....
About this creation

Welcome to my first attempt of this very classic Cylon Baseship. It has been built before and will be built again by other talented legoholics like me.





I am using my 1978 Galactica base stand with some minor modifications.







Will I have enough parts? That is a very good question, at the moment yes......











Part way through the build I found the old stand unstable so here is the second attempt for the stand.







This is so far a technic affair to try and make the skeleton lightweight and strong. I will need some more time for making it gravity defying and not collapse in a pile of blocks.

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde The smell of success is in the air...!
Thank you Marc for your kind words. I think it is the plastic in my head melting you can smell as I work through more ... ( HOW WILL I GET THAT TO WORK" ) Cheers.

Quoting El Barto ! I don't envy the technical challenges you face, but it's got to be easier than the Reimagined Baseship. I'm guessing with this you will have the advantage of cross-arch stabilization. That's a term from the dental field, but I think it applies here, especially looking at that last picture. It seems as though it'll be more important to connect the farthest facets, rather than the adjacent ones?
Thanks Dude master. Yes I have been very slow in this response. I will head down to the dentist for a quality cross-arch stabilization and the wonderful sound of the drill grinding my farthest facet. Cheers El.

Quoting El Barto ! The toasters are making a come-back! Looks like a promising framework, Chief!
BY YOUR COMMAND..... Thank you for your comment... My problem with the framework is to get it to work a ten sided disc has it's half brick miss-alignment issues and it is so brick hungry. It is not the longest in my works but it is going to be the tallest to date....

Quoting Ruud Hoogmoed Hi Garry, good to see you're back. And with a very challenging project! Of course I like the technic frame approach. I'm very curious about your progress, can't wait to see more.
Thank you for your comment and YES it is good to be back in the construction industry. Been away from it too long. The Technic approach is inspired by your baby as mine was rather heavy.
