GAL-356: The Original Galactica Shuttle Studio Model photographed by Jim Small

I shot these pictures of the original shuttle in 2008. It was carved from urethane foam clad in sheet plastic and detailed with hundreds of model kit parts. The model was restored a few years earlier by Ed Miarecki who had to re-dress it and repaint it after it had been used in Buck Rogers with a different paint scheme. Several parts on the model are not likely original as a result. However, these are by far the most extensive photos ever taken of the original model. Nobody else has shot it in this much detail at that time. Enjoy.
