Wow, great mod so far! Can't wait for the next update!
Thanks, Update frequency is a major update about every weekend with lots of pictures and small ones during the weeks brainstorm sessions.
Absolutly beautifull and subbed/repped/voted
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, )
Thanks for your reply!
Here is the announcement of 2 new sponsors!
Gigabyte hase helped the EURISKO by fitting it with a new motherboard, the P67A-UD7
What a beauty, clean, slick, black with golden highlights! Super! Thansk a lot.
Highflow will help the EURISKO to keep as cool as possible and thus help break the WARP 10 barriere!
Nice piece of kit there.
Keep up the good work.
Nice updates ( for some reason I've not been notified via "Instant Update" subscription ) . Very glad to see your work get the MOTM nomination . Wow - I love the mobo.. can't wait for you to energize
I descided not to just post a list of the hardware that is going to power and run the EURISKO so here is some graphical work on the confirmed hardware that will be used in the EURISKO ! There is another one coming but I want to have everything inhouse before I confirm it.
What will be confirmed later are :
- Variable Geometry Warp Nacelles - Brink Of Modding Coolant Reservoirs
- Warp Nacelles Positioning Controllers - Servo array for pylons/warp nacelles
- Quadritronic Optical Subprocessors - Mobo and GPU waterblocks
- Isolinear Chip Array - HDD/SSD's
- Impulse Drive - PSU
- Life Support System - Radiator FANS
- Em/Quantum Navigational Deflector Dish Array - Intake FANS
- Long Range EM/Multi Spectral Scanners - FAN and LED Controllers
- Hull Composition specifications - EPOXY/Glassfiber
- Astrometrical Graphical Analysis and Processing Core(s) - GPU(s)
Thanks man !
Gracias Amigo !
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.
Congrats with the sponsers !
Keep on going my dutch fellow!
This is EXTREMELY nice looking. If you plan to do some thing like this again, you should take a look at ships from Babylon 5 and esp. EVE Online (the amount of different ships in EVE is amazing).

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 !
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!
You got one of my votes buddy, your work is outstanding keep on modding!!!
Got my vote! Keep it up!
