Default Classic BSG Colonial Viper !

Hey modelers and modelerettes!

Just wanted to show some test shots of the nearly completed Viper that my team and I are working on for a client!

Only Mods were the addition of some maneuvering jets and lighting.

http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b3...20BSG%20Viper/

All done now. Finished pics are up plus videos of the Light FX.

Thanks Wombat! I wish I could take the credit for the thruster idea but it was my client who requested that they be drilled out.

Thanks Scorpius!

This is the reissue Revell styrene kit for the 30th anniversary! Sorry, I completely forgot to mention that!

Thanks 777!

The pulsing engines idea was actually some 'artistic license' put to use to bring her to life.

The electronics were custom made. A pic is attached.

A demo video is in this link below.

Oh that's sweet that Revell's reissues are now out! Didn't know that, heh!

Anyhoo, very sweet work on the Viper there. I like the lightings.

But I am disappointed to see the panel lines are still raised, yikes! But I look forward to getting these in a short while. Gonna be sweet!

Very nicely done! I like how she turned out. The thrusters are a very nice touch, too!

BTW, I'd think that Bojay would have more than just five kills. Especially going off of the episode "The Living Legend". Then again, perhaps each of those Cylon symbols represent a squadrons worth of Raiders, eh...?

Again, very nicely done!

Thanks Griff!

Originally I wanted this to be as if Bojay was just 'starting out' with his fighter but I like your explanation alot better.

When I was in the hobby shop last Saturday getting supplies for my star destroyer, I noticed that they had ONE of these sitting there, for $23.95. I *almost* bought it, however could feel my wife's eyes boring into my brain from a long distance away.
