5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly detailed model as ever!, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BSG Pegasus (Toy)
Superb construction. Very heavy model when completed, but the detail is superb and a pleasure to paint! The 'Galactica-ised' (Corners cut off the paper) instructions inside make the whole product worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome kit., 8 July 2014
This review is from: BSG Pegasus (Toy)
I bought this again from the USA, as it was 20 cheaper (at the time) than any UK seller.

The sprues were perfect with no imperfections, detail is really good much like the other Moebius kits I have made.

Unlike the Battlestar Galactica however, the flight bays were not all the way through visable, but Moebius made up for that by putting in decals that made it look (perspectively) like you could see all the way through & small landing deck decals.

When putting together the flightpods/landing bays, you affix a decal to an upright wall above the flight deck decal making sure you align the centre deck road line (as it were) to the centre of the wall decal & once in place it does look like there is a full flight deck inside.

You can buy a Paragraphix photoetch set with full length flight deck decals, but it requires a lot of surgery to the inside of the flightpods & can be quite expensive for the set.

Once the decals are down & sealed, you can assemble the flightpods using a centre sandwich piece, but it will be better if you paint the flightpods & the sandwich piece before you assemble the upper & lower flightpods as it will prove more awkward later on as I found out.

Then comes the lower & upper parts of the headpiece, again connected with a sandwich piece, once you have glued all the head inserts into place, again paint those along with the sandwich piece and glue the guns in before you assemble the headpieces onto the backbone & the belly using the locking tabs on the back.

After all that, comes the rear engine assembly, which comprises of 8 engine rods, 1 upper & lower plates which make a hexagon type housing, a mid housing mounting plate (for the rods) and the main mounting plate which glues into the backbone/belly.

However when you come to put together the backbone with upper head & the belly with the lower part of the head, the engine plate will have to be mounted upside down, as it says on the instruction sheet the mounting tabs should be glued into the backbone (top), but this is wrong & the belly (bottom) had the holes for those mounting tabs,

Once you've managed to mount the top to the bottom, which can be quite tricky, comes mounting the engine nacelles which are really easy to glue in &once the glue had dried, you then glue in the rear engine vents.

Once the engine nacelles are dry the come the flightpods, which will (like the galactica) be pushed into place through the belly holes & into a docking assembly inside which the glue should be put inside and then leave it to dry.

Then comes the painting, the paint I used for the whole of the model was armypainter's gun metal in a 400ml can, also you will have paint on the landing bay entrances in red, along with putting on the registry decals, then you will have to paint on the head markings again with red paint & then the backbone decal for the colonial emblem.

I really enjoyed building this model, all-in-all, this again will make an awesome addition to any Battlestar Galactica fan.
