A high-poly model of the Galactica from the 2003 TV series.
I know it's a big model... but to be fair, it could have been a lot bigger.
The model they used on the show was supposedly about 20 million polygons. My version is just under 1 million (or about 5% of the original). It's still huge, obviously, but I didn't want to go any smaller. Low poly models of this ship are already out there, and building another one didn't interest me. If I was going to do this, I wanted to go all the way :)
I'm pretty happy with the modeling here, but I'd describe the texturing as "adequate". It looks okay, but there's plenty of room for improvement. If any of you texturing gurus want to tackle that (massive) project, I'd love to see it!
For those who are curious, I've got a ton of pictures from the build on my Facebook Page
Please note that all texture files are packed and must be unpacked before use.
As with all my "Fan Art" models, I've issued a disclaimer below. Personally, I don't care what you do with this model, but the people who own the rights probably feel differently. Be careful with that stuff :)
Other than that, enjoy the model!
