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.

I've never built anything like that, but now I'm tempted to go outside my comfort zone with this.

this is pretty outside my comfort zone as well. sometimes its good to do that and you can pick up quiet the skills sometimes. plus its good to be challenged or try something new.

always best to go your own way and express your ideas. Thanks for the descriptions btw, I followed your lead to the Moebius site and was delighted by their kits. The BSG stuff is ace. I also liked the up and coming Mars Attacks kit. Very funny! .

Hi. I had similar problem with my first project  with the space ship being red (see the link below) . So I draw and redraw the snip many times till I decided to print 3 different pictures. Then on the paper was possible to really see what comes as a red color . In your case the picture is great on the screen .

the link didn't work, but i think i know what one you are talking about.  my camera would not do it but it finally forced me to start using editing software, which i have used ever since and made my photos look much better.

I happen to own the same kit, but I'm still not sure, if I want to assemble or scavenge it for it's engines. Von Richthoven up there just made the decision harder.

cool, it was a high quality kit and very fun to assemble. i would say build it as the engine assembly really isn't made up of many parts.
