Default Eastern Alliance Destroyer

I am just about done with a prototype destroyer from the original BSG.

Hope to post a picture tomorrow!

It isn't much to look at yet. Still getting the shapes right. The only real change I have made is moving the wings back to be fins.

Been working on adding color today. I'm almost afraid to start the nose cone.

VERY Nice !

I don't think I have ever seen an attempt at modeling the Eastern Alliance Destroyer.

Are you using cardstock and thin balsa for the top part of the body?

I designed it for balsa fins with cardstock decals. That should make it stronger and have some detail. I added an option to use just cardstock to since the parts are already there. There is a balsa template that could be used as a stiffener instead of balsa.

But, the body is entirely cardstock. Not counting the BT-20 tube...
