    I have re-sized Ninjatoe's Viper model. Revell Fan told me what the new size is because I sent him the measurements of Ninjatoe's original viper model, which the measurements are under the picture on his web site, and the measurements I found online of the 1:1 model they used on the TV series. Ninjatoe's model is a 1:36 scale, and when I increased the parts in MS Paint from 100% to 150% it made the model a 1:24 scale. There are three things I had to cut apart to fit, but is easy to put back together, and build the model using the instructions from the original model.

    The model is already built, but I thought I would show most of the build process especially those parts I had to cut to fit. The stand, wings, and internal frame work. It takes 19 pages to make the model.

    The next 10 pics, and one with the two-tone viper next to it. Both were at the same progress in the build.

    Here is the last 10 pictures. I have sent an E-Mail to Ninjatoe asking for permission to resize his model, and to put it in the downloads.

    Very clean build. Would like to get the sheets of this resized model. Hope, you´ll get the permission to put it on download.

    Thanks guys! Good news! Ninjatoe has given permission! Just got the e-mail. Said he was a little busy, but it would be on his web site later, and to go ahead, and put it in the downloads.

    I think I should mention this even though it is in the pictures that the four extra parts for the splice for the main support is just 110 lb card stock, while the rest is glued to card board like the back of 20 can sprite box.

    Blake, there was someone asking on Legal )1's thread about his 1/18 scale Viper, and how he could so such a thing. If you ever felt compelled to write a tutorial, on how you did this in paint, I am sure you would have many, many happy followers, and admirers. Great job!! :)
