Artist Garry King continues his tribute to Ralph McQuarrie with this fantastic, and huge build of the Cylon Raider as designed by Ralph himself!! I must admit… Garry’s works continue to amaze me!
WELCOME ONCE AGAIN TO THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF MY TRIBUTE SERIES.
Ralph McQuarries Concept Cylon Fighter.
It looks simple with the hair pulling behind the scenes technical blunders and triumphs.
The Fighter look some time to build especially with me adding other projects while I figured out “how the frack am I going to get that section to work.” Admittedly I left some detail off . Never the less it still looks the part.. OK… No there is no Cylon flying the craft as I didn’t make one to sit in there but as it is a Cylon the works “ Plug and Play “ rings in my head so why do the toasters need instrumentation, hand controls and other flashy devices… They can remotely fly the craft or just plug themselves in and fly it .. HAHA…
The craft is large and heavy but still strong enough to pick up and fly around the room until gravity kicks in and then it becomes too heavy and it has to land or crash…… These images are on black background to emphasize the ship and with the other 40 images I have yet to edit they and these images will be on Starry backgrounds for magical and realistic effect.
Length 1085mm X Width 960mm X height 210mm.
Length 42.71 inches X Width 37.79 inches X 8.26 inches.
Now this creation has been completed it must be reused to create the Concept Battlestar which will complete my tribute to a Master of design Ralph McQuarrie.
But wait There was another Baseship I have found online but I am not sure if it was one of Mr McQuarries.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this creation.
Please visit my other site and take the time to rate this model if you have the time and please have a look at other models I have created for the Battlestar Galactica theme.
