A few photos of my old Monogram Battlestar Galactica kit.
The model was released in 1979, and was a fairly simple kit to put together, with just a couple of decals.
It was one of four kits released, the others being the Colonial Viper, Cylon Raider, and Cylon Base Star.
Battlestar Galactica which came out between 1978 - 79 was, of course intended as Star Wars for television and lasted for just 24 episodes before being cancelled. It did however return a year later with a cut-price version renamed Galactica 1980, which lasted another 10 episodes before it too, was axed.
The original studio model of the Battlestar Galactica was apparently six-foot long and used dozens of plastic kits, in particular tanks to create the detail.
