At long last (and actually after the actual television series has ended), modelers have a model of the new Battlestar Galactica, as seen in the reimagined TV series that began in December 2003 with the miniseries and ran in regular seasons from October 2004 to March 2009, plus “The Plan” that was released to video in 2009.

This kit is officially listed as being 1:4105 scale. The kit parts are finely molded in light-gray styrene, and have minimal flash. The kit includes a stand formed by the Galactica’s formal insignia and a metal pole. Clear parts are included for the engines. Aftermarket accessories for the kit include photoetched brass parts from Paragrafix (part no. PGX-133), a lighting kit from Madman Lighting (part no. MML-BSG), and two sets of decals from Acreation Models (part no. ACM- 117-2 for the basic set, and part no. ACM-117-1 for the deluxe set). At the time of this review, all of the above were available from StarshipModeler.com.

There have been some comments on websites regarding some fit issues, specifically with the “garages” that the flight pods fit into when retracted. There are also some issues with the flight pod floors, and I have seen builder comments indicating that the mounting pins need to be removed to allow the parts to fit properly.

Overall this looks to be a very nice kit, and will make a great addition to anyone with a Battlestar Galactica collection.

The completed kit measures about 13 inches long.
