About this creation
The Gemini Freighter Stardrive section...












































As I was dismantling the Gemini Freighter I began to see a better aspect of the freighter not just as a Battlestar Galactica model that was used in the 1978 series, I saw a new way to show off this model in a way not seen before.






































































































In the model in the series the centre core was just a tube running the length of the ship, “BORING” .
My apologies to the designers for the comment.
















































In my case it was a critical part of the model so after ripping off the attached pod components I rebuilt the centre core and added heaps more detail.















































If you are a stickler for exact detail you will find the front section went through a slight rebuild to as it fell apart onto the floor in many small sections. A few words were muttered at the time it happened, didn’t matter it had to be rebuilt anyway after the fall.













































Really was a sneak attack by the Cylons just ensuring it got destroyed again. That was the ultimate fate of this starship.





































In adding more detail the landing pad section seemed a little weird so I added the columns to the underside attaching it to the main hull.























THIS MODEL
SCALE 1 : 240

LENGTH ……. 2540MM ………. . 317 STUDS .…….. .. 100 INCHES
WIDTH ……... 555MM ……….. 70 STUDS ……….. 21.85 INCHES
HEIGHT …… 340MM ……….. 42 STUDS ………... 13.38 INCHES























The massive arms have been retracted upwards to the rest position so when the cargo pods are set into place they lower clamping them together with the aid of super powerful electromagnets locking them into position.











All as we know this is just a flight of fancy with the fun of the almighty imagination,

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING

Wonderful! The details on the "spine" are extremely nice. A section we don't get to see in the show so close up. Thank god, we have such a talented builder showing us the hidden goodies! ~Cheers

Another great creation. Good that you've posted the live pictures. Because the "space" images don't really show the fantastic details.

And we shall always genuflect to the almighty imagination! Brilliant reworking of this beautiful vessel, I love the winglets along the central tube. Good decision there. Outstanding!
