A winning entry in Jon Palmer's P-38 contest. Inspired by the Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica.
About this creation
September 2005: This model is currently being auctioned off on Ebay. Check it out!
What started off as a completely original moc for the P-38 contest soon became much more. (see progress pics in this folder)
As I was showing off the early work to some of the big kahunas, Adrian Drake pointed out that it looked sort of like a Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica. Well, I was inspired by that remark, and after a couple more tests with the shape of the ship, I zipped quickly through construction until I completed the model in what for me (for anybody, really) is a record pace: Friday afternoon until Sunday morning.
It was originally grey w/ dark grey highlights, but during construction the ship really cried out for some color, and after deciding against the original colors and stripes of the P-38 I went with dark blue Just Because I like blue.
I'll add more commentary as I see the need.
I�m interested in any and all comments/criticism about the ship, so please let me know what you think!
Very clean and neat its beuatiful. anyways where did jon host the contest from? Ive been wondering forever and i cnat find any of his work anywhere...its depressing really...any info you could email me would be greatly appreciated.(and yes i nkow the contset is over).
