Battlestar Galactica Ships Magazine #14 Blackbird
Eaglemoss, makers of STAR TREK: The Official Starships Collection launches a series of oversized die-cast models based on Battlestar Galactica. Each of the ships are between 8 and 11 inches long. The Blackbird is a short-lived, prototype stealth fighter. Similar in shape to other Colonial Vipers but different in almost all other ways, the Blackbird is a one-of-a-kind ship, capable of incredible speeds, and made of black carbon composite materials that make it largely undetectable in flight. Eaglemoss has worked closely with members of the modern Galactica VFX team to ensure that the models are as accurate as possible. The accompanying magazines profiles each ship and features interviews with the show's creators, including Ronald D. Moore.
