Ralph McQuarrie's BASESHIP CONCEPT . WELCOME . Welcome to my first tribute to a genius, Ralph McQuarrie. Without his imagery this build would not have been constructed. With all the challenges in building a round looking Baseship with strait lines this for me is one amazing looking builds. I feel this is a triumph. It is able to hold its own weight on the tiny base. As you may see it on a stand it can stand alone. I like this build because it is unusual in design and concept. There is very little reference material available for this ship just the basic shape. The detail is applied for a dramatic effect. If you have a look at the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica series. The first movie Saga of star worlds when Apollo and Zac go on patrol and see a Cylon tanker the scan through their onboard war book display and this beauty is unveiled for the first time. Sadly it never got developed as a model until now. Wait before I say that I should say I have not found any physical models on the internet. ELEMENT COUNT 16387 Is that all !!! Definitely thought it used more elements... OH WELL. WEIGHT 36.69Lbs or 16.64KG dimensions 1100mm dia x 1030mm high This Baseship has 3 landing bays on the top of the main hull. I used dark blue as a contrasting break from the boring, dark green is used for the landing bay decks and dark red I felt it needed to link it to Battlestar Galactica, the Cylon red eye for an added effect. Allowing the imagination to run free, The red line runs around the circumference of the circular disc. This is used as a scanner to seek out the inferior human pests. The rest is mono chromed in light bluish grey, light grey, dark bluish grey and dark grey. Combined is what you see in the final result. JUST FOR EVERYONE WHO LIKE TO SEE HOW THE CREATION WAS BUILT THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK THROUGH THE IMAGES.
