The Battlestar Galactica: Designing Spaceships reference guide is a unique collector's item from Eaglemoss' Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection, a series of collectible models from the Battlestar Galactica multiverse.


Battlestar Galactica: Designing Spaceships goes behind the scenes on two generations of a television classic. This guide tells the story of how visual effects pioneers created iconic spacecraft for the original Universal Pictures' Battlestar Galactica in 1978, and how a digital revolution saw those designs interpreted for a reimagined series in 2003.

This lavish illustrated volume includes concept art spanning four decades, set plans, and computer-generated models from the original 1978 series through to 2012's Blood & Chrome. Featuring new interviews with artists, designers and CG modelers, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: DESIGNING SPACESHIPS is the definitive guide to the creation of the Galactica, Colonial Vipers, Cylon Raiders and more, including original designs by Eric Chu, Andrew Probert and the late Ralph McQuarrie.
