That is cool!

Did you have to assemble it in the bottle?

Sort of reminds me of the old bottle model kits, like the Jaws scene one.
Addar or somesuch make weren't they ?

Very cool idea though Marco, gives me a grin looking at those pics.
Nicely done!

Very cool indeed. Now, I'm not up on Galatica stuff, is that like a diecast or a Micro Machine type? Who makes the ship?

Looks to me like it's one of the Candy Toys by Konami, I think it was?

Also, I'm seein' a seam on the bottle. ;)

Looks like the Galactica has finally been bottled up.

Galactica finds a tiny clear nebula.

Next seasons force field special effect.

Put a cork in it already.

Yes, it is the candy toy from Konami. And yes, I cheated a bit - but I simply cut a line in the area where the background starfield is now, put the ship into the bottle, but the pic ino the bottle, drilled two small holes from behind into the bottle and put two bend brass rods through those holes. They hold the ship in the bottle and the bottle on the display base.

I`m happy that you like it! :cool:

That's pretty detailed for such a little ship. How long is the Galactica? Gotta find one for me now.
It is approx. 10 cm long.

The KONAMI candy toys are really little gems, all series and every single one.
