Spotlight Review

"Highly accurate, but too big and expensive"
I've recently built the Moebius Battlestar Galactica, Colonial Viper, and Cylon Raider. Of the three, the Raider is the least interesting of the three. A big selling point for this kit is that it is studio scale, meaning your completed model should be the same size as the actual shooting model from the 1970s show. Its that's a plus for you, great, but I find my Raider is so large - about 17 across - it doesn't fit in on the shelf. Another minus is the kit price - it is way too expensive. There are maybe 30 pieces total, and while the kit is detailed, there isn't that much to paint. I do like the accuracy and the kit looks great when assembled.

"Cylon Raider with LED Lights"
Chris R. (Jacksonville, Ar)
Best thing about this model: Detail and easy to build. Bad thing about this model: Price of the kit, Fixing seam lines and having to cut/shorten the connector nubs. Without shortening/cutting them the seams won't lay flat on top of each other. Size of the kit is huge compared to the Viper (I included pics of my build in the pic section). Both the Viper and Raider are in the same scale 1/32. Painting: On the build I painted the body with Tamiya Sky Gray then went and painted several panel a darker gray, to give it a little detail. I painted the black stripes Tamiya NATO Black. LED Lights and Modifications: Engine: 8 - 5mm flickering blue LED for the engine. After modifying both of the engine section to make space for new lighting with thrusters cones set-up. Canopy: 2 - 3mm blue lights used to give blue glow to canopy cockpit. Cockpit modified to show inside of canopy. .5mm Fiber optics used with 3 - 3mm LED (steady red, flashing red, steady blue) to create lighting action, of back inside panels. Head Lights: On front of the raider 2 - 3mm Amber diffused LED. Bottom Sidelights: 2 -1.8mm white lights Also, added fiber optics on the on the R and L sides and back of the pilot section. Using .5mm fiber optics connected to a 3mm flashing white LED. It looked to plain and wanted to give it some detail. Thought it could simulate ships sensors for the R and L side and back of the ship. Lasers: 1mm fiber optics connected to 1 - 3mm flashing blue light. L and R side lights: .5mm fiber optics connected to 3mm steady blue light. (Again wanted to add more detail) Power Source: Since the bottom Panel connects with 4 nubs to the body of the ship I trimmed the nubs and added 4 magnets so the panel can be opened and closed. I then made a box so you could connect a 9v battery to power the lights. The magnet keeps the panel from coming off when their is a 9v battery. The LED lights are powered by either a 9v battery or a 9v AC/DC adapter. ******if you use the 9 v AC/DC wall adapter disconnect or remove the 9v battery or it will drain and heat the battery. *********** Also used the sounds parts from a Cylon Centurian bobble head with scanner lights (put inside canopy back wall) So it says the following phrases. By your command Colonial viper squadrons approaching in large numbers Our raiders are still engaged against the Galactica Only thing left to do is weather it a little. Wanted it to as close to the original Battlestar Galactica T.V. series Cylon Raiders.

"Cylon fighter TOS"
1/32 scale is better than the small one I built in 1979. Looking forward to lighting it

"Brilliant kit"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
I love BSG annd this kit builds into a true representation of the original Cylon Raider. I recommend adding the third party, or custom lighting as others have as the result is impressive and well worth the extra effort and cost. Research the approach that works best for you on the web, and enjoy.


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
