HOLY MOLY!! 144 Inch! (3660 MM) Lego BSG Mining Ship from Garry King

I am speechless….. just…. speechless at all this artist produces!!

 

THE MINING SHIP WAS DESIGNED TO EXTRACT RAW MINERALS AND METALS FROM PLANETS AND ASTEROIDS

From the the most amazing tv space soap opera ever created.
Here in its splendid glory is the second most useful craft in the colonial civilian fleet.
The mining ship seen in Battlestar Galactica in the opening scenes and rarely anywhere else, perhaps a distant view now and then beside the Galactica. In the new series it made a come back with some modifications, These can be seen in the fourth season in the episode SCAR. The mining ship had landed on an asteroid and was Some day in the far future..

I created it in a retro color scheme to add to the older look of the late 70’s

The craft does stand on the landing gear unassisted and bares the weight. It takes four people to move this beast but I did make it in sections so that it can be taken to exhibitions around Tasmania.

The debate is on whether it will see another exhibit or become another massive beastie.
