Thread: 3D Printing - Thunderfighters and Hatchets

    Default 3D Printing - Thunderfighters and Hatchets

    The latest models from the Photon Shipyard, Gloucestershire









    I've always liked the fighters in "Buck Rogers", the design of the Earth Defence Directorate's "Thunderfighter" was originally intended to be the Viper in BSG. Maybe I'll do a few more in colonial markings.....

    Lovely models! What would they do for damage in BSG?

    Could we assume similar stats to Vipers and Raiders?

    Probably, although Buck and Wilma should probably "one shot" everything

    Gathering "blueprint drawings", I found this post on another site: publicinsta.com - BSG/Buck Rogers Mash-up?

    I can't find any decent 'Blueprint' drawings of the Draconian Mauraders. Darn!

    David; you're really making it hard to resist getting a 3D printer.

    These look gorgeous, David! I saw them on the FB page and admired them there - the pic size is better here, and they look marvelous. I, too, really enjoyed this show when it was on television, and I agree that the ships look very cool. Your Space 1999 ships are quite lovely, too, Christian - it looks like BSG might become the perfect vehicle for a TV space show mashup...

    All the best,
    Matt
