Whiterooks' sci-fi stash....

Battlestar Galactica: Colonial One

Battlestar Galactica: Colonial One

Bought today. I'm looking forward to combining the the color of this piece next to the stark white, and then weathering. I love the design of this craft....built as a luxury liner and commandeered as the new ride for the President of the Colonies after the Cylon attack as 'Colonial One'!


Interstellar: Ranger
Moebius, 1:72 scale

Also bought today, my favorite movie this past Summer.....and amazing story, and a great work shuttle...the Ranger craft is sleek, sexy, and totally doable as a real spacecraft. I'm planning to build her gears down....maybe even in a diorama of the scene on the water planet! ....

Cylon Centurion

Cylon Centurion

Bought a couple months back, this is the reason I'm currently (as of this posting) working on the WWII Mustang....the work I do on that reflective surface will be pre-practice to the effects I'll need to archive on this kit. What a fearsom looking killer!

Battlestar Galactica

I've been waiting a long time for this kit! I bought this a several months back, and I love this beautiful carrier. Due for decommishioning and bound for drydock as a museum, the grand 'old' carrier was a deconstructing work in progress at the Cylon attack. Plans are to war damage the old girl up!

Battlestar Galactica: Viper Mk VII

This was bought about 6-months or so back, and was meant to join my Mk II. The plan with this kit is to push the envelope with doing pre-sprayed panel lines and top coat, and battle weathering.

Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Raider, Reimagined series

I plan to build this along the same lines as the Colonial Viper Mk VII....though, there's a nagging little voice in my head to build this as battle damaged 'Scar'; the Cylon Raider that was in the dogfight that brought Starbuck down, and which she flew back to Galactica.

From the original series, I'm trying to decide whether to build this straight up, or as a crashed diorama.

I have the regular and deluxe kits, the only difference appear to be one has paint included. Regardless, I picked up the second on on sale with the intent of sratchbuild converting it to Babylon 4!

Love, love, love this fighter! One of the best out there! My only problem is....build as Earth Alliance or Psi Corps???

This was a whim purchase. Nothing much to this kit, so the challenge would be to make a gem from a piece of coal.

I've been thinking of these a lot lately. I believe I may be going on a Sci-fi Build Binge!

They're fun to build. I liked the Buck Rogers Fighters from the Seventies Tee Vee Series. Good Solid Kits that were durable enough to be toys.

Loved the Buck Rogers series!!! Though Tweekie got on my nerves a lot, it was quickly displaced by my then raging hormones reaction over......

Erin's lip gloss on the show back then, about put me in a tizzy.
