Man Building Cylon Raider [Pics]

Eugene Haggerty from Clearwater, Florida has begun building a half-scale, DRIVABLE replica of a Classic Cylon Raider.

He is even an Imperious Leader of the Colonial-Cylon Alliance.

Construction began October of last year and Haggerty hopes to have it ready by Galacticon 3 this May in Houston, Texas.

About 150 hours of build time remain and Haggerty could really use some help.

Already, $10,000 has been sunk into the project and Haggerty expects the total cost will exceed $20,000, when all is said and done. After Galacticon, Haggerty hopes to make the rounds at Dragon*Con 2013, as well as a few other conventions, too.
