cylon raider.

Custom Built in the USA.

NEW!! Plug-N-Play kit version available Added 10/2017.

    From the Hit series Battlestar Galactica that aired back in the 1970's,
Starling Proudly introduces our completely awesome Life Force light
and sound effects kit for the GIGANTIC 1/32 Moebius TOS Cylon Raider.

Talk about EXTREME FX!! That is what you can expect from this kit!.

This complete kit features voices for 3 Centurion Pilots, lights and sounds
for Guns, engines and running lights. Engine sounds run continuously:)

    For those of you whom have the custom resin cockpit with 3 Centurions,
we have an option for the cockpit lighting with a 6 LED chaser board for
your Centurions eyes, it is AWESOME!!
Please look through all the available options for your Raider below.
   Other options available : RC activation and 4.5v wall adapter with harness.

   Our New optional Plug-N-Play version of this kit means there is no soldering
for you. Everything has a labeled harness that plugs into the circuit board and
everything can be installed inside the ship allowing you to remove it from it's
base which allows you to do what you will :)

Our circuits are built to last for generations.

Be sure to read our battery recommendations on our Info/News
tab at the top of the page. Rechargeable eneloop batteries are
used in our testing.

If you're new to lighting up a model and aren't quite ready, or you would like a
perfect model built for you, Steve Carricato is your guy.
