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.
