Cylon Raider


The model seen here was built from an original release of the Monogram kit with a number of modifications including a full lighting set using super bright LED's with switches and battery pack under the canopy which is held in place with magnets.  Also, just for fun and demonstration purposes, a machined aluminum armature with cover hatches is installed allowing for the model to be mounted from the top, bottom, front and rear as were done with the original miniatures used for motion control filming.

Yes, the lights under the wings really are on some of the original studio models. You can see them in shots during the pilot episode where the Raiders fly overhead as they bomb Caprica.

  The photos below show the armatures screwed onto an adjustable C-stand mount.
