About this creation





















Amongst the older ships in the Colonial Rag-Tag fleet the Gemini freighters have some of the worst living conditions of any vessels in the fleet. This is to be expected as Gemini Freight Corporation was well known for owning and operating the largest and, in many cases, the oldest cargo haulers' in the Twelve Colonies.











By far and away the Gemini Freighters have the greatest cargo hauling capability of any ship in the fleet, able to haul upwards and over a million metric tons of cargo, from hazardous waste and raw ore, to consumable and clothing these ships are best known for now hauling human cargo in the way of refugees from the colony world Gemin.


























Unlike most ships in the fleet the Gemini Freighters are armed with turbo lasers, point diverters and electromagnetic defence shields, these defences used primarily to protect the slow moving freighters from pirates and the occasional Cylon raiding party.































However this vessel would have to be the most attacked in the original series and finally got destroyed in the second season of Battlestar Galactica in the episode of SUPERSCOUTS …. with the magic of television it was resurrected in the new series of BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY episode named SPACE VAMPIRES

OH NO !!!!!! You may say it’s all gray and not the same as the original model in the series. You are correct. As I was not able to get the correct colours for this build I decided to say that this is a newly built vessel that has not yet had a spray can applied to the finish. The vessel is on it’s way to the detailers to get the final paintjob.

Quoting El Barto ! Awesome! Great details there, Dude, even better than the model for the show! However, the Colony is Gemenon, even though the ship is the Gemini. Who knows why that is, crazy Scroll thumpers...
Thank you Elbarto the great for your comment. It was a fun build with a lot of down time waiting for elements to arrive. Love that Bricklink shopping.

Quoting VAkkron ™ That's an amazing ship. And as I'm not familiar with the source material, my favorite parts of your model are the white highlights and the trenches running down both modules. Great work, that was a 497 hours well spent.
Thank you VAkkron for commenting on this build. The join between pods do give the build a lot of depth. Cheers.

Quoting Parrington Levens 300 long, and man the patience to build symetrical sections that length, BOSS effort mate. And top model. Australia's next top model is always from G.KING, lol...
Thank you Parrington for your comment. Always give myself a challenge and something easy afterwards. Keep up the great creations

Quoting Kurt's MOCs Spectacular work! This is flawlessly executed to the point where I cannot recognize a Lego piece to get a sense of scale. Bravo and keep up the great work!
Thank you Kurt for your welcome comment. I try to make them look as real as a model can be. Not always easy with Lego. It is fun trying.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Outstanding job! I love how you made the cargo sections. They look massive. I looks like your going to build the entire " Rag Tag Fleet" I wonder if you kept every ship how long that would be. Beautiful work on the command section too. Magnificent!
Thank you very much Clayton for your comment. I am slowly getting there sadly some ships I feel I am unable to do justice to so they will be left behind.
