Re: Do you want this?
Is that supposed to be the Pegasus? It seems a bit different from the original... well, in any case, it looks damn good... :yes:

a) That's not supposed to be the Pegasus.
b) That doesn't look remotely like the Pegasus.

It's closer to the Pegasus. It surely doesn't look like the Galactica...

From the thread over at SG aldo said its a destroyer-type model. Whether a destroyer BSG-wise or FS2-wise i'm not sure tho. Kinda looks like a squashed battlestar to me, ie just the head section and engines without the mid section and flight pods. Either way it is one helluva model imho.

Sure. He posted the screenshots here, meaning that he considers it a nice battlestar model. :)

I can see how you can think this is similar to the Pegasus. After all, the Peg differs only in slight details, like having flight pods, a different hull, different engines, different head, different launch tubes, different weapons, different paintjob, different scale - in short, different everything. Other then those small, insignificant details, they're virtually indistinguishable. :D

You're actually forgetting the most important detail:

It's been suggested by VA you guys might be able to finish and use this;

The model isn't complete... :p

Um, that be like having a Ohio SSBN almost completed in the yards and deciding to build it as a Nimitz CV.  Sure after you melted the Ohio down to scrap and cleared the slipway it would be possible but then whats the point?

That doesn't mean it was going to be converted to the Pegasus, get flight pods, different body, head, and engines.
Might I also divert your attention to the tiny detail below the main hull, also known among the experts as "the hangar".
Are you suggesting that the finished model would scrap this design and make it more Pegasus - like? Unlikely, though it does have the advantage of Mobius not being wrong and not having to dispute the indisputable.
The impression I got was that the main shape was finished, and now it needed some detailing work and textures done. Making it look like similar to the Peg would pretty much require a restart.
