My latest blog entry covers a set of TOS Vipers and Raiders from Battlestar Galactica. Printed to fit in with the later series models from Ares.

Very nice. I prefer the original series Raiders as well.

The originals are the best design – like how you painted yours

Agreed on the original raiders being the best. I built a few of the larger model kits of the raider back in the day. They were maybe 8 inches in diameter. Very cool results and easy to build.

You can use it for almost anything, depending on relative sizes and how you paint it. A large model kit would be a good lander for 25mm figures. A small one could be anything from a large warship to a small civilian vessel. And, of course, you can use it as the main space fighter of the genocidal Cylons.

Those look great. Where did you find the stl files?

They are all on Thingiverse. Just search on "galactica"
