Yes!! I love this piece! I was a fan of the show back in the day and love the detail Chronicle put into this replica. Say what you will about the cheesiness of the show by today's standards but these ships were some of the best fighter designs hands down imo. I would also love a BSG Viper as well in this scale and quality.




Thanks for starting this thread and for posting that pic, Python.

I loved the show when I was a kid, and I really like this design. Haven't seen it in many years but I love ship designs in general and I'll pick this up if I can, not sure yet if this is a kit or a pre built, I guess Paul can chime in on that soon.

This bodes well for the future also, it's a really nice start, but there are so many cool ship designs out there, I'm just happy to see that Chronicle seem to be happy to take them on, and judging from the looks of this one, we're all in for plenty of treats down the line.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I might have to hand in my geek card for this.. but I've never seen the show.
lol
Even without knowing the source material, I love this model. Such crisp sharp details, great detailed paint app, and the presentation with that stand is elegant.. perfect.

Just makes me wonder what they could do with a Star Wars license...

You've never seen Buck Rogers? How did you ever get by without Twiki in your life

I kid haha.. it was a good show back in the day, not sure how it has held up. But the good thing about designs like this is that you can appreciate them whether you're a fan of the subject material or not.

And I agree, I'd love to see them get some more licenses. SW has been pretty well covered although there is even stuff from that we still need. An imperial shuttle, A wing and B wing for starters...

I agree. Hopefully this is a prebuilt and painted replica. I am guessing that it is considering the stand that it comes with.
