Red Baron by enc86 Red Baron by enc86
Here is my model of a Viper MK II during the first Cylon War, piloted the "Baron". Manfred Tigh brother of Saul Tigh was a top viper ace who became obsessed with a warrior from earth legend. he even went as far as having his viper painted red and had ancient markings added.
After 80 victory's, Manfred was shot down during the defense of caprica and is believed to have died during the crash....

Anyways this was a very fun project and an excellent model kit. the kit is made by moebius models and was of high quality, my only real complaint is that the decals provided with the kit are quite thick and heavy. so i skipped them and just used some left over German tiger markings. i had a hard time geting photos of the red but was able to correct that in editing. the one big thing i learned on this kit was some basic Photoshopping and editing.

BIG thanks to :iconvisual-smut: for suggesting the baron idea to me. without him it probably would of been some sort of gray.

thanks man, it was hard to resist. i love the viper and most of the models i had seen were the white, so thought why not a bit of extreme color.

Understandable, it's fun to tinker with an established design. To push it beyond what's intended.

I occasionally think of building an X-wing with a red Maple Leaf on the surfaces of the S-foils. One day...

thanks dude! yea i started learning some basic Photoshopping stuff on this one. my camera hates red, so i learned how to correct that in post. re-edited some of my older works as an experiment and the difference is big! what a few filters can do...might post a pic at some point showing the before and after affects of my enhancing.
