BATTLESTAR BERZERK . WELCOME ALL TO MY NEW GUNSTAR CLASS == BATTLESTAR BERZERK == . BATTLESTAR BERZERK ……. Another magnificent ship that was designed for the re-imaged battlestar galactica seen and destroyed for the first time in the episode/ movie “RAZOR” season 4. I have to say this was the hardest built I have done. taking 2 months and having to wait for parts to arrive. I was inspired by the small 1:3700 scale model that is available and I have sitting on my shelf with the rest of the collection of BSG merchandise scale models. Yes I am just as obsessed with BSG MODELS as I am with lego and building these ships in lego.. I thought this small Gunstar class operated by the Civilian fleet should be slightly different by using white and dark red blocks for an added touch of elegance. This beast is 1860mm in length 610mm wide and 350mm high. 73.228 inches long x 24.015 inches wide x 13.779 inches high. Not including the timber and steel this begger weighs 54.2 pounds or 24.58 kilograms ELEMENT COUNT....... 20,892 I thought there would be more. I confess that it has a timber inner backbone for stability and steel is used in the two lower engine as when I built them out of lego the weight of just the lower engines sheared off all the connector pins and snapped off leaving a weakness for the technic 1x 12- 16 to snap in half bend and distort then tossed in the bin. So I can be pleased that the front is self supported and sits nicely. As usual I am also adding this creation to the brickshelf site of mine and it is currently devoted to the build. I have been slow in adding to it. I got side tracked with getting the front of this MOC. as good as I could but its far from it …to me anyway. If anyone out there have any suggestions for a bow, round fronted and smooth please pass me on your wisdom. I am still humbled with the collective minds out there that have shown and passed on simple and yet ingenious solutions to problems. As this Gunstar was in the brickyard I also adopted some of the many wondrous raptors, vipers and raiders and built some. These will be added in time, as I am still editing and taking 100s of pictures of each model for the best results. After the demise of my old Canon Powershot A95. I bought a new fandangled wiss-bang new Canon with some brilliant features and lengthy exposure time for the highest of quality and definition… A new expensive toy to play with and learn about. So I have no excuse for crappy photos anymore. All previous images that are on my sites will remain, I do apoligise for their quality. Back to this creation it has 10 huge main canons 10 secondary canons 68 smaller canons placed around the vessel. This make it the first heavily defended ship I have built Guess I am feeling rather aggressive and want to blow up things. Spring has sprung the cool weather is passing slowly so I will be out in the garden more often and building a little less… In a few months I will be dismantling both the Defender and Berzerk and the arduous task of counting and sorting all the parts into their individual shape ready for the next major build. BATTLESTAR VALKYRIE will be the next massive build. I am guessing it will be at least 7foot long. Not sure if I have the strength to carry it… I will and you will see in time. I would like to thank everyone for taking the time for looking at this new moc. Above is the weak section where the engines are attached to the main body.
