The Battlestar Galactica Fleet Pack

The Rag Tag Fleet

The Battlestar Galactica Fleet Pack was originally developed by Coxxon as an add-on to a game (Star Trek Bridge Commander I believe). Working with members Nothing and Skupilkinson in the CardModels  forum at zealot.com I took the original meshes and cleaned them up and adjusted things so they could be converted into paper model kits. Nothing and Skupilkinson then unfolded the cleaned up meshes, tidied up instructions and uploaded the kits. A few kits I did completely on my own. Over time revisions have been made to some of the kits, and all kits presented here are the latest versions.

Another forum member, Revell-Fan has since picked up the development of kits from the fleet pack, and thanks to him the fleet continues to grow. Enjoy, and if you appreciate the work we do, don’t forget to make a donation. Any amount is appreciated and helps to keep this site online, and the models available.

 

All the model kits here are free for personal use. No commercial use is allowed.

Many hours have been spent developing these and we will continue to make new models available.

If you appreciate what you find here please consider making a donation.

I suggest $5, but any amount is most welcome.

Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica built by Stephen Irl

Battlestar Galactica built by Stephen Irl

The Galactica is available in two versions. The smaller version measures about 18 inches (1-1/2 feet) when completed, and the larger 36 inches (3 feet).

Regardless of which you choose you’ll need the assembly instructions. Due to it’s size the model is split into the Bridge, Mid and Rear sections.

Assembly Instructions
Bridge Section – 3 ft Bridge Section – 1.5 ft
Mid Section – 3 ft Mid Section – 1.5 ft
Rear Section – 3 ft Rear Section – 1.5 ft
Patches – 3 ft Patches – 1.5 ft

Colonial Liners

Like the Galactica the Colonial Liners are available in both a large and small version (1-1/2 feet and 3 feet), but also come in six different liveries. Click on a ship to see a larger image. I’ve prepared several different download packages so you can easily download the version(s) you are most interested in. Each liner is available individually in the large and small versions, or with both large and small versions in a single zip file. You can also download all large versions, or all small versions in a single zip file. Enjoy, and please consider making a donation to help motivate me,

The original files for the platform ship (don’t know the real name) were lost in a hosting incident, but Revell-Fan fortunately had a copy of the large version in his collection. If you have any of the other versions please send them to me. Thanks to Scott Warner the small version is now available in both lined and unlined versions.

The assembly instructions consist only of a series of images giving the overall flow of assembly.

Intersun Liner

This ship is a luxury liner, but the current model kit is economy class. Since I may never get around to redoing it so it meets my current standards, I’m posting it anyway.

The instructions are minimal consisting of a series of images to guide assembly but should be adequate for any builder with a little experience.

Yes, you can live on Cloud 9. At least in the Battlestar Galactica fleet. This was an early unfold of this ship by Trent Henry. I don’t recall if a test build was ever done, but like other models here I’m including it because I may never get around to re-doing it. If you build it please let me know and send a picture. I’d love to hear if there are any problems in the model so I can fix it up.

Both the large and small, in lined and unlined versions are packaged in a single zip file.

The Celestra is now available in both large and small versions.
The assembly instructions are primitive consisting of a set of images indicating the part numbers and assembly sequence but should be enough to help you get it done. Both lined and unlined versions of the small model are provided. I recommend that you download both and use the lined version as a reference to help you build the unlined version. You’ll be glad you did.

    Great! Thanks! Could you make the other 3ft lined files available? I’m especially interested on how to fold the mid-ship section, part 1. What line convention do you follow for mountain and valley folds?

  2. Adam Gunia says:

    Hey I’m new here. I want to start off by saying thank you for uploading all these papermodels. They are just fantastic. I do have a question I would like to ask. Is there a Celestra model on this site or is it not ready yet? I was just curious because I can’t wait to add one to my “Fleet” and i can’t find a model of it anywhere else.

    • Steve says:

      Hi Adam. We did release a Celestra model in the series over at Zealot.com, but the files got lost in one of the many hosting changes. I have the files but the unfold is not up to my current standards so I’ve resisted posting it. I have actually had a couple of inquiries about it recently though so it’s probably time I get to it. It’s mostly a matter of cleaning up the unfold and parts layout, so I’ll add it to my ‘soon’ list and try to get it done.

      Thanks,

      Steve

      • Adam Gunia says:

        Mr. Steve.

        Thank you for letting me know what is happening with it. I was wondering if it is alright if I use some of these models to decorate my library for their Summer Reading Program for the kids. Each year they have a themed reading program for kids and this year the theme is Sci Fi. I was hoping it was alright with you if I can use the models to decorate the ceiling with Galactica ships.

        In any even, I look forward to the Celestra model when you post it. Thanks for getting back to me.

        • Steve says:

          The only thing you can’t do is sell the patterns or claim them as your own. You’re welcome to use the completed models for whatever purpose you see fit, including selling them. Decorating a library is a great idea. And I love to see pictures of peoples builds, so send a few if you can.

          Steve

          • Adam Gunia says:

            Mr. Steve

            Thank you for your permission. I felt it was only right I ask you first before I used your models for anything. No need to worry, I would never dream of selling or claiming your patterns, that wouldn’t be right.

            Thank you for posting the Celestra models. I’ve downloaded the patterns and instructions and as soon as I finish all the models, I will send you pictures. Do you have an email address I can send them to?

          • Adam Gunia says:

            http://starfox2o12.deviantart.com/gallery/

            I almost forgot. I have a DeviantART account with pictures of some of the models from your site that I made. My Galactica and Pegasus models I found a few years ago before I found your site. But the Colonial Movers and Zephyr Ring ship models are from here as well as the Cylon Basestar. I also have other models I’ve built but haven’t posted them yet.
