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!


March 2004

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!

   I've modified the moc away from it's original P-38 modelling so it's just a bit more Cylon-y

   Custom Cylon fig inspired by Mark Sandlin.

...not that he has a schmoove chromey head, but he made one just like this.
