    Thanks! When I was doing the foam work with the breadknife I sometimes wondered what the hell I got myself into though ... But practise makes perfect and the next build with foam will progress much faster I think.

    I used the same foam-cutting method when I built BSG, but I was lazy and used the wife's electric carving knife lol!

    Was just reading through your log a couple days ago, and it was bringing back memories. Great job so far, looking forward to seeing the outcome!

    Thanks, I "found" your buildlog just a couple of days after I finished the "big" foam work. Using a electrical breadknife, damn it what an idea, we had 3 lying around. (appereantly a good housewarming gift here in the netherlands)
    Here's me working the old knife, bending the knife while cutting did allow for nice curvatures and very fine "pealing" of the foam.

    To make matters worse, I found a manual to build a meter wide hot-wire device using an the frame of a large wood saw. That would have been extremely handy.
    Love the detail of your BSG build. Must have taken some time to get it to fit with the bending of the foam. I will be going to heat the depron foam using a hotplate to mold it into place. Should be good fun. (and having no fingerprints afterwards may have its uses also, :naughty:)
    Thanks for your reply!

    Are you getting them now?
    There is still a descent amount of work on the outerhull and deflector tunnel involving filling and sanding and stuff. Looking forward to finally finishing that and moving on to the hardware and lighting build portion.
    Thanks !

    Wow , Nice link on the EVE Online. Dont know how I ever could have missed that one. That's the beauty of the internet. Done MAJOR research on this (and the next 3) builds but there is just so much stuff out there that you are surprised by these kind of links. There is definately something in the EVE database that will be considered for a later build! Thanks man !

    Ah, yes Babylon 5 - Where the habit commenced. When the DVD boxes started to hit the shelves a couple of years ago I took the mission to watch all the seasons. The SFX for that time were ground breaking and stunning, now my 46inch LED pixilates the letterbox format big time and watching should be done on a 32inch at max. When watching the entire series in a fast pace you cant help but be amazed by the sublime writing. So sorry they killed off the shadow war arch in 2 episodes for the battle for earth. Just like they killed BSG and now Caprica ... Those b4st4rds !!! .... But anyway I degress ...

    The next build will either be the A Battlestar Galactica NAS (smaller build), A Desanto Cylon centurion (medium Build) or the Deep space 9 (huge build).

    Thansk for the support !

    Thansk k.3nny!
    Is a first for me working with sponsors, so the fact that those companies want to tie their names to my work is very cool!
