Looks great so far! I suppose you're using NURBS?
Do you think you'll do a battlescene or anything?

I did some more tweaking before I start the cockpit. I fix the motor area and the front part of the wing. I will do the grid on the top and bottom of the wing soon.

Since im hosting my own image, i dont think the admin will not be ok with this since im not using their space and Bandwith

this is very cool, as a big bsg fan it's nice to see some of the ships on the forum as they seem to be appearing a lot less often on the show

Just out of curiousity what are you using for reference? screen caps from the series or did you find some orthographic refs?

Yes, i did use reference but only for the rough shape, I dont like to be true with the plan, that why i prefer to do my own creation.
