    Bought this with high expectations The Galactica is almost completely hard plastic with the inner body being die-cast. Its still a nice model but for die hard diecast metal fans I gave it 4 stars because of the detail, size and price I bought for $67.77 as of this review it now sells for $77.88

    De lo mejor, sin duda, una nave icónica, la calidad de los detalles es asombrosa. Tiene muy buen tamaño, los materiales se sienten resistentes y de muy buena calidad. No puede faltar en toda colección de Battlestar Galactica. Estoy al 1000% satisfecho con mi compra, sin duda, la recomiendo.

    As a fan of the original show (circa 1978) and the newer version which is now 18 years old, i love the new design of BSG75. This complements a small collection quite nicely. Came well packaged and was a nice christmas gift. So say we all!

    This model has some real heft to it. Great detail. Very well made. I bought it to get it signed by Edward James Olmos at New York Comic Con. The ship is so detailed that the surface of it is not smooth enough to be autographed. I had him sign the stand that comes with it instead and it looks great on my shelf. Very happy with this purchase.

    A little pricey, but good quality.

    It’s awesome. But to get all five stars, I think it needs to be bigger. The Viper MK-3 I also got is larger and looks amazing. All five stars for that one.

    And how about making a battle-damaged Galactica that’s 15″ long. I’d pay $100- for that.

    Das fertig bemalte Modell wird am Ende noch mit einer Schicht sehr wässriger, schwarzer Farbe überpinselt, damit das Metall einen alten, benutzten Look erhält. Die Farbe zieht in die feinen Ritzen und umgibt harte Kanten, was das Ergebnis sehr realistisch aussehen lässt.

    DAS PROBLEM: wenn man das nicht sorgfältig macht, weil man am Fließband für Massenware hockt, dann hat man als Kunde so ein Ergebnis wie ich in der Hand. Nämlich ein Schiff mit ungleichmäßiger Färbung, sehr hellen Stellen, an denen zu wenig aufgetragen und sehr dunklen, schmierigen Flecken, an denen viel zu viel aufgetragen wurde.

    Mein Fazit: Macht es richtig oder macht es gar nicht. Denn was ICH jetzt machen darf ist Schadensbegrenzung. Also das ganze Modell selbst bemalen und “altern” lassen. Dafür hätt ich mir auch den 40% größeren und 60% günstigeren Modellbausatz kaufen können.

    Pluspunkte immerhin für das nette Büchlein (wenn auch nur in Englisch), den Ständer der kein Loch im Modell benötigt um es zu halten und die guten Winkel und Proportionen des Modells selbst.

    After re-watching BSG on SyFy network this month (April 2020), I really wanted to get a BSG ship. To my surprise this came up when I searched on Amazon and didn’t hesitate to purchase it. Shipping took awhile due to Covid-19, but it was worth the wait. It is packaged really well with no chance of it getting damaged. I am very happy with this purchase. It’s a little larger than I thought which is great! Now, if I can only find a Cylon baseship, that would be fraking awesome!

    I expected more metal content and was disappointed that this model is almost entirely plastic. I think that the paint makes it look very authentic, but overall I’m underwhelmed given the price I paid.

  10. Jason Auld

    High quality materials and the model has great details. Displays nicely with the included stand.

  11. Tobi W.

    Where to start.

    The build quality & detail is excellent for the price you pay for this pre-assembled model. Alongside the other ships (original Galactica & Pegasus) – it looks quite amazing, and I’m so glad I’ve added this onto my ever-growing sci-fi collection!

    The order itself ships quite quickly (mine took about a week without prime), and I would most certainly recommend to any BSG fan.

    Bought this with high expectations after already buying the Pegasus and Valkyrie models. The Galactica, for lack of better words, is completely different from the two. Rather than a majority of it being die-cast with auxiliary structures (the flight pods, engine pods, etc) being hard plastic, the Galactica is almost completely hard plastic with the inner body being die-cast. I wouldn’t have been too disappointed by this if the DRADIS antenna on the upper bow section hadn’t broken off during shipping (wasn’t a huge deal, but it’s one of the reasons it’s getting four stars).
