    Its great! The head seems to have a lot of authentic looking detail/greebles in it. It really gives it that extra edge.

    Are you working off reference shots? schems? (if there even is any for it! im a newb when it comes to galactica stuff online). Either way its an impressive start :)

    Good luck with this, I really liked "Caprica" and was pissed when it got canned, but the final 5 eps managed to give it an amazing send off.

    I've found that Doug Drexler's Blog is a wealth of trek and BSG/Caprica themed reference material :)

    I actually haven't gotten around to watching the last 5 episodes yet. :)

    Now that I look at him, I wonder who would win in a fight: him or the Terminator? :D

    Looks good. Never watched any of the new Battlestar stuff. Hell, didn't even watch the old stuff.

    I'm aware that there are a few issues, in particular the feet are floating in a few spots. Just wanted to see what my U87 would look like in motion :p
