    Next project moving on to the bench after the Big G is done will be the Moebius 18 inch Jupiter 2 kit. I picked up this sealed kit at our last club meeting for $40. What can I say? I like BIG models!

    Quick lighting test. Looking good!

    Thanks! I did a quick lighting test this morning using a flashlight shinning on the fibers, Whoo-Hoo it's going to look great! But didn't have time to upload the pics. before heading to work. I'll post them tonight.

    All the fiber work is done. 300+ windows. Both .5mm and .25mm fiber was used. Fibers are all bundled up and trimmed. Now to install the electronics!!


    Bridge with .25mm fiber.




    Mike's replacement launch tubes in place. Much better than stock.

    Got some more work done on the Big Girl. Starting to run fibers in the head. Got the gap under the bridge squared away with Aves epoxy. More fibers to run and then even more fibers to run!!!

    Nice job so far. Didn't realize a kit existed of this yet.

    I was just thinking about this kit this morning! Nice to see someone working on it. I don't think the kit is that old, maybe mid to late 90's. Looking forward to the rest of your build.

    This is a resin kit made by Mike Salzo. You can find him on FB and scifi forums like the RPF. Drilled about 150 holes for fiber the other day. Still need to drill another 200 or so. The ship will be lit with .5mm fiber optics.


    Picture taken at last weekends meeting of the Kentucky Modelers group. It was a big hit to mostly car modelers!

    I'll post some more pics after work today. Spent last evening drilling windows. The windows are .5mm for fiber optics to light them. I got the port side done and part of the top, drilled about 150 windows, still need to do about another 200. I'll then start running the .5mm fiber optics.

    It's a very well designed kit. A joy to work on.
    The ship is generally accepted to be about a mile long, give or take...

    It's about 1/2000 scale, give or take, based on how big one believes the "actual" ship was. Total length of this model is 37.5 inches long, just over 3 feet!!

    3 foot Galactica
    A little something I've been working on.
    Taking this to a local meet this weekend here in KY, probably spend the day drilling windows and BSing...





    Going to see how well this works on resin. I'll bring a few fresh batteries with me!

    Thanks again everyone for the comments. I'm mainly a sci-fi guy but dabble with cars now and then. Those perfect glossy paint jobs just kill me! Yu dot need that with sci-fi, lol...

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to starting on the street version. Probably wont be built as Bond's car though, don't need two white Esprit's!

    If you look at the 3rd picture, you will see the dash is the same on both sides. You would only need to fill a very small hole on the right and cut a matching on the left and relocate the parking brake. I may do this myself.
