Dave Olszewski – JT-Graphics/BAD-AZZ Models – Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica – 1/48 BLACKBIRD Viper

This is the Bad Azz 1/48 scale Blackbird from the reimagined BSG series – produced by Jeff Waclawski of JT Graphics. Like all of the Bad Azz kits, this kit is so well engineered, has excellent fit, and requires almost no clean up. It is a dream to build.

I added some photoetched instrument panels, seat belts, and seat ejection handles to the cockpit. I also added some scratch built engine details in the side engine cavities to dress up those areas.

To break up the monochromatic paint scheme, I shaded each panel with dark gray – feathered into black by the opposite edge of the panel.

The kit also comes with a printed card stock section of the Galactica deck – taped off – just like that shown in the BSG episode featuring this unique craft.
