    helena is beautiful! and on a side note, your project looks like a nice replica of that ref pic!
    id like to see something covering the outputs of all cards, maybe just a small outet at the bottom rear for cables

    feel free to network, cylons actually don't exist, they are just fictional characters in a tv show.

    Huh? What planet are you from? That "TV show" is an historical documentary picked up by Owens Valley Radio Observatory near Bishop, California. It was classified but leaked out several years ago. The only thing we don't know is how far away did this tranmsmission originate, and therefore, how long ago? Cylons may be closer then you think...

    dont lol anything, in the original "historical document", they reached earth in the 70's/80's, and if you havent noticed, the "ufo sightings" have become more common since then and so has the evolution of technology reached insane speeds.... just think about it :worried:

    sad to hear we have to wait a long time for this mod but i guess it will be worth it.
    but congrats to brian, i wish you good luck with that "project" :naughty:

    My wife is German. Her family lives outside of Köln (Cologne). My grandmother's name was Helen, so we kinda put a germanic spin on it. ;)

    I wondered for a second how you got the ö in your post :) or do you have a german keyboard?
    besides, I'll keep on watching this and I'll wait for updates :)
    congrats on the baby

    Hehe trade secret! :p Actually I just used the "character map" feature in Windows to find the code that will display the ö (alt + 0246). :D

    Thanks Nick. :)

    And don't worry guys, I don't plan on giving up any time soon! Things are quite busy around the homestead these days. Not only do we have another mouth to feed, but we are looking for a new house with more room (and a bigger workshop!).

    Plus right now, any modding time I manage to eek out of the day is being devoted to getting my Mystique case back up and running for next week's Showdown LAN in San Jose. So I won't be working on BSG until after next weekend at the earliest.

    IT LIVES!!!!!!

    Ok I'm back on this project, and I actually got something new to show.
    Looking back at my last update, I had just finished the one side of ribs,
    and one armor panel. Well, I finally managed to finish the ribs on the
    other side, and much much more! Check it out:
    [​IMG]

    After that exercise in tedium, I did the ends.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The center areas will be cut out later, but I kept them intact for now. I won't know how
    much to cut off until I get the inside panels done.
    [​IMG]

    Then it was on to the rest of the outer armor plates. Going off the ref pics, I sketched out some designs
    and cut them out just as before.
    [​IMG]

    Using the same technique, I glued the smaller panels onto the main piece.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More sketching, going off of my earlier chalk markings.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For the end armor panels, had to do some measuring and a little geometry to get the right shape.
    [​IMG]

    I also needed to get the correct curves for the shape so they match.
    I brought my trusty flexible curve out again to transfer the curve from the main body to the sheet.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not a bad match! Now to do it again for the other end.
    [​IMG]

    Comparing it to the ref pic.
    [​IMG]

    All the armor panels done! Well, almost all. I still need to do the top.
    But I can't do the top until I get all these panels glued on.
    [​IMG]

    I thought I would shoot a coat of primer onto the whole thing to get underneath the panels before I glued them on,
    but also because I wanted to see this thing all one color for once!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Looks pretty good, don't you think? This is where I'm at now. Next step is to get all the armor pieces glued down, and the top armor on.

    Feels good to be back on track with this mod. I can't believe it's been over two months since I stopped working on it.
    Hopefully I can keep at it now, and post some regular updates from here on out. :)
