[SPACE] Colonial MK II Viper

Postby Firespray » Tue Feb 17, 2009 1:08 pm

I started building this during the Shut Up and Build Week, finished it a couple days after the site reopened and finally managed to take some decent looking pictures :p Like Turk, I built it using Andrew's model as reference including various other Viper shots from the ChiefLug group on Flickr.

I had a lot fun building this, just recently got into Battlestar Galactica and was sad that I hadn't gotten into it sooner, very cool show :D After finishing it and seeing the scale of the model, I could only imagine how awesome Chief's hangar display at BrickCon must have looked in person :shock:

You've done it wrong. Top fin. Should be different, IIRC. :p

Regardless, it still looks awesome!

Other then him using a 1x4 tile instead of 2 1x1s and a 1x2, the top fin is exactly the same as Andrew's model.

Jakefail.

Looks great Marc. All these new ones really make me feel like I need to get off my sarlacc and build one. It'd be a lot easier if I hadn't just boxed up almost mty entire collection...

Good work.

You say something about that, and yet fail to mention the complete change to the side slopes :p

That's an acceptable modification, along with engines... :P

The top fin I saw like that on Empy's viper and I liked it :p And the side slopes no one else liked but I did so I kept it :p
