WIP Viper by enc86 WIP Viper by enc86
So this morning i have been procrastinating on shoveling the ton of snow i have and worked on my viper. i now have it mostly assembled and tonight ill start work on filling and removing some of the seams.looks like ill only have to do the middle hull seam, everything else has been designed to be hidden.some dry brushing on the exposed engines and ill be ready to paint.
i am not use to jets but this kit so far has been a blast(kinda want to do more now!) the only weird thing on this kit is how the back assembly goes together. overall tho this kit is very nice.
My one complaint is the stand, its kinda worthless, doesn't have a good fit and while i was trying to trim the contacts i snapped it(really crappy clear plastic IMO), so ill have to ether fix that or make my own.

Looks good man! Shame about the stand though, the MK VII had the same issue too and needed to be shaved down to fit. Looking forward to the finished build :)

I've had that problem once or twice with stands for snap-together models, but I assumed it was just because... well, they're snap-togethers :XD:

yea its kinda weird because the viper model is High quality, and the plastic on the fighter is quite good. but he stand doesn't fit right and is of very low quality plastic .
not a big deal i think i can fix it, and if not ill just make my own.

It's bigger than the Revell Vipers.... :D

but the big bonus is that if you have both moebius and revell kits... you can kitbash like crazy.

cool! yea when i got the box i was kinda let down, but once i opened it up i was pleasantly surprised! builds up quite nice, tho the back end is a crazy jigsaw puzzle.

yea kitbashing one would be tons f fun.

That looks awesome! Can't wait to see the finished product! To me the Battlestar Gallactica Viper was the coolest looking space craft ever. Looks like a sports car. The Cylons with the chrome armor even looked better than any Stormtrooper. Just my opinion.

thanks dude, this is one really fun kit, i was surprised by how nice everything fits and looks.
yea i LOVE the ship design from Battlestar, making this one makes me want to more! this viper is one sexy fighter, and a decent size too! gonna have to get the MK VII as well.

Somewhere, I have the original spaceships that were mine as a kid. They had launchable rockets attached in the wings...plastic of couse. Anyway, they had to quit producing them because of a chocking hazard. I guess some dumb kid was firing rockets down his throat. I have two original Cylons somewhere too? Does the old Battlestar Gallactica even come on anymore?

XD very cool! think i might of had that TOS viper toy as a kit too. stupid kids, natural selection i say! we had much cooler toys when we were kids...i look at the boy's toys at like wallmart and just shake my head.

not sure if the old battelstar is on tv, but they do have it on netflix.
