I would doubt it, no one has the patent on spaceship flyby's. It more likely goes back to editing and pacing.

Having seen some out takes (especially the alternate one where Zac bites it), I would guess lots of fx footage was shot. But in introing the ship, they stuck mostly with the upper views so you can better establish it I guess, and budgetary reasons kept the repeat footage of said shots going. (I think a lot of the 'unused' footage made it's way into the series as it progressed).

As this was a one off 'tv movie' they could at least utilize this long play time to service the credits. But anyway, whatever the reason, it's nice that it exists and is not rotting away in a film can somewhere.

Here are a few more caps, not 'Mission' specific FX shots though. Very cool anyway. CGI sucks!

Mike,

Nice caps Mike.

What episodes is the caps of the Galactica shuttle and Cylon Raiders from?

I would love to see a Galactica movie with all the original Battlestar models. I know it will never happen with everyone doing cgi but it sure would be nice to see the old girl fly one more time. It don't hurt to dream.

If they couldn't get Gary's model maybe they could use yours Mike. Im sure it would look great on the big screen sailing among the stars with the rag tag fleet behind it.

Thanks for the caps and letting us see the progress on the wonderful Galactica model your building Mike.

Mark

Any chance for more of the Shuttle? I'm a shuttle whore, and that pic showed that even the Mireki Replica isn't complete, the part on the front I've never seen that clear a shot of before.


ALL good stuff, and thanks for taking the time to post it . . .

Miareckis' shuttle is correct, what you're seeing is a variation of the front mounting point cover. I have shots showing both versions.

More cool stuff, not much else on the shuttle though.

This one shows the pre- 8Rad turret detail on the main body top. I think there is a Gepard part with a large battleship turret, maybe Yamato, behind it.



This is interesting: you can just see the outline of an orange halogen bulb, showing that the fire effects were achieved on a separate photographic pass, the exposure hiding all the messy wires that would have been taped to the model.



Just....cool....

Awesome pics. What episode or movie did the first picture come from.

The pic of the Galactica over the planet was in 'Mission', but probably seen in 'Living Legend'.

Some more...

Nice choices for screen caps Mike. Those horizontal views give the G a great sense of presence and make her look quite menacing.

No worries Jim, glad to oblige. The Battlestar design looks good from any filming angle, unlike a few other famous starship designs, doesn't it.

Yikes- your message made me realise that I'm still at the bench at nearly 2am Monday morning... That's what it takes to build one of these monsters I guess.

I still owe you an email, Jim. Also, can we get a look at your Galactica work in progress?

Puh-leeeeese?

Mike, Oz

Yes, Jon is correct. They made a seperate cover to represent the Pegasus shuttle. Note the GAL is masked out. The same base model. Only the front mount point cover was changed.

The Gepard part is #D13 on Starboard, #D14 on Port. The turret is from the Heller Dunkerque kit, part #25.

Anyone know why that detail area on the G was changed? Seems like a pointless mod to me?
