Revell GALACTICA Re-Issue from the Chris Borges-Silva Collection

I have the pleasure of introducing another Collector to our Gallery…. Chris Borges-Silva! Showing first is his Galactica build by Wayne Hough!

This is a Revell 1997 “re-issue” of the classic Battlestar Galactica
model kit.


The model was built and lit by the talented Wayne Hough.

I saw some of Wayne’s work from an ebay auction of another Galactica model and knew I had to commission him to build mine if he would.

He took me up on my offer and I’m very pleased to show photos of the fine job he did.

The ship windows are lit with a white LED Light source and fiber optics. The ship engines have their own LED lights.

A weathering “wash” has been applied to the model to bring out the fine details.

Wayne also added back-lit interiors to the landing bays.

This model is quite a sight and a great conversation piece to the envy of my guests. I’m very pleased with the results.
