The Classic Cylon Raider is issue #9 from Eaglemoss' Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection, a series of collectible models from the Battlestar Galactica multiverse.
From Eaglemoss' product page:
- The incredible Cylon Raider ship was a small and efficient firepower ship that operated out of Cylon Baseships which first appeared in the classic Battleship [sic] Galactica series. In the show, the Cylon Raider was powered by Tylium fuel, with cylindrical Cylon tanker ships providing support on extended missions across space. This small ship was large enough to accommodate three Centurions – two pilots and one commander.
- The Cylon Raider (TOS) ship comes complete with a 16-page magazine includes in-depth information, which looks at information about the classic Cylon Raider and exclusive behind the scene articles and artwork from concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.
