Lego builder Brandon Griffith spent over 300 hours to build amazing re-creation (1:1210 scale) of the iconic Battlestar Galactica from Ron Moore’s epic reimagining in 2004. This thing has approximately 29,000 pieces and measures 47” long by 18” wide.
As a big fan of Battlestar Galactica, Brandon realized that “there have been several models of Vipers and other ships built out of LEGO, but I felt the BSG needed some representation. This was a passion project of mine.”
“When building a ship from a beloved sci-fi show as this,” Brandon notes “details are important! The biggest detail was nailing the correct proportions of all the different sections of the ship. It was important to me that when viewed, you would see angles of the ship that you would commonly see in the show and those angles would not only appear familiar, but evoke some joy of a memory when watching the show.”
The BSG-75 model debuted at BrickCon in Seattle, WA October 6-7, 2018 and will be displayed at Bricks LA in Pasadena, CA January 5-6, 2019.
It’s nice to see some Lego BSG love, as everybody always seems to be building Imperial Star Destroyers, amazing though they are.
