Some Guy is Building His Own Drivable Cylon Raider, Surprisingly Not Baltar

I love vintage Battlestar Galactica as much as I love the more recent version. And I do have a soft spot for old-school Cylons, so I find it awesome that Eugene Haggerty from Clearwater, Florida is building a half-scale, drivable replica of the original Cylon Raider.

He started construction in October of last year and the goal is to have it ready by Galacticon 3 this May in Houston, Texas. Eugene estimates that he has about 150 hours of build time to go on this project. He has already spent $10,000(USD) on the project and he thinks that the total cost will exceed $20,000. After Galacticon, he may even take it to Dragon*Con 2013 and other conventions, too.

Man, I would love to see this Cylon Raider driving down the street. If you want to donate to the project, just click here for more details. This thing should look amazing when Eugene is finished.
