There is as the news would have it, A new Battlestar Galactica Film is in the works, this time it has gone back to its roots and to Mr Glen Larson who owns the Film rights, at this time there is a major support to use the original studio model “now privately owned” and the owner is willing to allow the studios to use these great original models that have been lovingly restored.

To meet this aim the owner and supporters of the original series have created a Facebook page, where even the original model makers drop by to share rarely seen pictures and some new ones also are in the offering, if you have a Facebook account, drop by and have a look.

The more likes the pages gets the greater the chances that this aim will become a reality, as much as I enjoy CGI, I would still like to see these old models make a return to the Big screen!

This is about the original filming miniatures used in the 78 series, and letting Universal Studios, and Glen Larson Production that the owner of most of the models is willing to let his models be used in the new movie production. Joining this page increases the headcount, and would get the attention of those that make the choice of what is
used in the production. In order to gain their attention we need numbers.
Bottom line I think with 20,000 or more members here we can get someone to turn their head, and will also tell them serious fans are still around to support the movie.

    I’d heard there was another BSG movie in the works, but I didn’t know they were going to be using the original models. That’s awesome.

      That is the hope by many, they still exist and have been restored too film work quality. I would love to see then on screen again.

    So the Galactica got the melt damage repaired?
    Somewhere during my internet travels I had read she had been put too close to a heat source and had suffered some rather ugly melting damage.
    Here’s to hoping for seeing her on screen again. Be it large or small screen!

      apparently the damage has been repaired and other features have been restored by many modellers. From what I understand the problem was the electronics where too high internally and she cooked.. I have to go back and read it to be sure .
