I must admit I'm not a fan of the show (never watched a minute of it), but I am a fan of the models!  Started painting it the other day, didn't like the way the color was turning out (too blue), so it'll be painted a more neutral gray.  Going to be using the Acreation deluxe decal set on it, it's a pretty daunting task ahead of me (three full 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of decals), but I like decaling so it shouldn't be too bad.

Your battlestar is coming along nicely.  How well does the kit go together?  Did it come with the P/E?

It's tricky.  I basically got rid of all the kit's posts and alignment aids, trued up all the mating surfaces with a large file and let the kit go together in a way that the visible seams were minimized, not the way the alignment tabs and posts wanted it to go together.  instead of following the directions, which would have you build the main hull and front "head" part as two separate assemblies and bring them together at the end, I built the hull up in full-length top and bottom halves, with the "head" attached to the upper hull, and the lower "jaw" attached to the bottom. 

 

The PE is from Paragrafix' small set of just the "museum" windows and nameplates.  They also offer a couple of larger full-blown PE detail sets as well.
