Revell’s Battlestar Galactica, based on the 2004 re- interpreted TV show of the same name.
Incase you’ve never seen the original series, or the rebooted tv series, here’s a quick blurp from the side of the box.
A Battlestar is a Colonial super battleship that combines the capabilities of an aircraft carrier with those of a warship. The Galactica is one of the first twelve of these Battlestars, which were built at the beginning of the first Cylon War, each one represented one of the twelve colonies. The Galactica which is about 50 years old and over 1400m long, as the last of her type in service with the colonial fleet is about to be decommissioned when the Cylons launch another attack 40 years after the first attack on the twelve colonies. Before the attack the Galactica was a member of Battlestar Group 75 – BSG-75, but after that undertook the protection of the last survivors of the Twelve Colonies during their flight to the distant legendary 13th colony.
I personally loved the reimagined looks of the Galactica, and when I saw this kit on sale, I grabbed it. I’ve popped open the box and have done up a quick ‘what’s in the box’ video… No expense spared.
It really is a very nicely detailed model, and big too. I have plans on blinging the sh#t out of this kit. I’m getting (once I have the money together) the photoetch upgrade kit and a lighting system for the Galactica. They’re not the cheapest but ‘The Bucket’ is going to be amazballs once I’m finished with the old girl.
Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.
