A special creation designed by a brilliant Ldd Designer.
About this creation

As much as I would like to say it is all mine I cannot. With the brilliant design that Stephan came up with in his outstanding LDD world he created this beast of a Cylon living raider. The main issue with this beast is gravity so unfortunately it cannot fly as well as the viper. However I constructed a base for it so It looks better.

















A time to reflect and put behind me
My partner and I parted company. Devastating me.
My dog passed away I was shattered.

Following that I ended up in hospital after a stomach accident at work and had major surgery to fix the problem so there was a lot of healing to do mentally and physically.

Then I decided to totally gut ( HAHA ) this place and remodel it and especially make the Lego construction room larger.

Just to add salt to the big wounds I had to wait a year for corrective surgery.
So I had 7 months to do most of the saving and rebuilding of the place.

I had the corrective surgery 5 weeks now and out of construction action for another two months.

I hope to be producing my Lego monsters in 2016 or sooner. Time will tell. Enough sob story.

Just enjoy this creation and the ones to follow





























































































































































































































NO FANCY FLYING AROUND THE HOUSE FOR THIS BEAST.


THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.

I'M NOT BACK JUST YET JUST UPLOADING WHAT I STARTED LAST YEAR AND NOW HERE I GO.

Quoting ShadowJump 2017 May your dog rest peacefully. I am only 12, but I have seen your models. I did not just stumble upon this, but I read about you in a book. I love your models! I just wanted to get some inspiration. How do you make the little guns on your models? If you please, what is the best building technique to build rather large models?
Thank you Shadowjump for your kind words. My main structural framework is done by using lego technics doubled up and capped off with plates top and bottom for added strength. Then I brace all the insides and outer framework so it can support its self when I pick it up and flip them over. Then I give it a good layer of larger plates followed by loads of detail and smooth outer covering. Makes the build heavy but so nice to look at. With guns or canons to the most part I do my best to avoid having them however if I have to add them I have them simple or get online and have a look at others who have made a mammoth effort to create them.

Quoting søren johansen You sir is by the best to build BSG spaceships. I have followed Your work for some time and it is just jawdopping over and over. These huge and detailed ships is just fantastic to see. I am really sad to see Your beloved dog passed away. May he rest in Peace.
Thank you Soren for your kind words. I am glad that you like the BSG ships I am building, They are a great past time and fun to build. Sharing these builds to others I hope will aspire them to build better and design better that me. Keep up you own magnificent builds as I am a big follower of yours.

Quoting Graeme Straughn Very cool build! The rockwork is stellar! As for the ship, it's breathtaking. Amazing work there! My condolences for both your losses. I'm a big fan of German Shepard, man, what I dog you had. Again, I'm sorry for your losses.

Quoting Spencer Mckrell Never give up and Never surrender. It would just eat me up inside as well if I lost my Dog "Trance" She is a American German Shepard, Awesome Raider, wish I could figure out how to put more detail in my stuff.
Thank you Spencer for your kind words. Trance has a good owner. You will work out the detail deficiency with your builds as you create more, eye for detail and the need for detail increases with age, I know I'm getting OLD... Keep up the great creations..

Quoting Tim C AND HE'S BACK!!! Very well done, Garry. Love the shaping of the wings and that display platform is fantastic. I love the little insignia that you threw in the middle. I'm really sorry to hear about all the mess that's been going on for you. I'm glad that you're making your recovery from the work accident and just appalled to hear that something like that happened to you. I apologize for goading you on to build, but I had no idea all that you were dealing with. This world doesn't know a better friend than the one that follows us around on four legs. Dogs are a gift, for the limited time that we have them. The ownership of a dog comes with the agreement that one day you have to say goodbye. A year ago, almost to the day, I had to take a wonderful German Shepherd/Labrador Retriever that I knew adoringly as Tippi to the vet for the last time. On Father's Day...on the day I got home from BrickWorld. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do and it still stings today. I feel for you, man, and my thoughts go out to you. That said, I'm glad you're making your recovery and getting back to the brick!
Thank you very much TIM. I am glad you like this build as I am always overwhelmed by all your incredible creations when you post them, I've just had 200+ comments to catch up on and 400+ builds to comment on so I have been Busy to say the least. Tippi had a great loving father to send her to her/his next life. My old boy was playing around in the yard and I was heading off to town, opened up the back of the ute when he jumped in, turned around looked at me and died, He died happy in his favorite place. As for Goading me that was very good timing as I was beginning to get all these images ready to post. Well done. Recovery .... had a setback today so tomorrow is going to be a better day.. I just need to finish this house then back into construction of more battlestars and baseships. Cheers my friend

Well, I am still learning building digital stable enough for making real...this Cylon Raider is real hard work of yours, as I know how many bricks you collected, and working trough the instructions; I am deeply impressed! I can see a likely change in the ankle of the horns, well done. Excellent work, Garry, and Best Regards!
Well its the Designer himself. Hello my friend. No need to make any apologies for anything. You are one incredible LDD designer and it is my privilege to be able to construct your designs. Don't ever stop.

I look forward to those amazing builds in 16!
Thank you Clayton, Things are always brighter the next day after the setbacks are dealt with. Just have to finish the renovations so I can create again. Some day I will bring another hairy beast back into my life .... Lego first..... Puppy later.... Cheers

It's always a pleasure to hear from you, whether it's as a comment on one of my creations or one of your own monolithic ships. Speaking of, the display for this one is a great addition, I love the varied textures in the base and the rockwork's top-notch.
Thank you Luke I am glad this creation satisfied you. Recovery took another setback yesterday ( can't have everything my way as usual) Still going forward. You produce the good goods and I will happily comment. Cheers.
