This fantastic piece began life as the SMT kit that was mastered by famed artist Alfred Wong. Artist Marc Elkins is building this piece somewhat like the talents at APOGEE did back in the 1970’s. We decided to place actual windows in this studio model instead of being open like the original filming miniature. The window reflection gives it an additional ‘real’ look when photographing the piece. This piece will be unique in that it is the only shuttle to date (we know of) that will be labeled with the ATL Presidential seal from the Battlestar Atlantia instead of the standard GAL-356 being from Galactica. This should be completed in the next few weeks, then shipped to me for Blue Screen photos and display in the Collection. Marc is doing FANTASTIC work!
