Bad Azz 1:144 Battlestar Galactica Flak Canon by Dave Olszewski

This is absolutely beautiful!


This is the Bad Azz 1/144 Battlestar Galactica Flak Canon. I spent most of the time on the painting and weathering. The base has multiple shades of gray masked to create panel line texture – then it was supplemented with select panel decals from PNT to create sporadic rows of panels across the base. My kit was missing the 6 “pods” (3 per side) that go on each arm of the gun. I used references to create a “master” (shaped from a chunk of resin and detailed with spare parts), then I used Alumilite to create a mold and cast 6 replacements. (My first time casting replacement parts). I also created the “pipes” from tubing; and, added the ladders to the back of the gun (from 1/144 scale building supplies). Finally, I used spare decals to provide supplemental “Galactica” markings to the base and Gun. This model picked up a gold award at the recent Wonderfest show that was held in Louisville KY June 4 & 5, 2016.

Thanks & God Bless!
