    I know I haven't been posting much in the way of builds lately so here's an update. Been getting into BSG lately so here is the Sirius repaint of the paper toy-box TOS viper and also Ninjatoe's reboot MKII both in 1/72.Now I'm just looking forward to Revell-Fan and UHU02's vipers which i will also attempt in this scale but with cockpits :D. I never realized how small the vipers really were until these builds lol, compared to sayyyyy an X-wing
    Imcold's to be precise, also in 1/72

    Nice! Love the scale! You can get enough detail on to look good, but it's small enough that you can make a decent sized ship without taking up an entire room.

    Hmmm . . . speaking of which I really need to continue on the Serenity test build for Mirco over on papermodelers. So far it is a superb model.

    That is one awesome work space. Two Vipers to boot, and one in the making! Awesome! :)

    Wow, that's nice! :thumb:

    I'll continue the Viper as soon as the silver Crichton and the new neck are finished. You wanna rescale her to 1:72? Hmm, you are daring..! :mrgreen: :cool: :mrgreen:

    It's funny, I had the same thought about printing it at 1:72!
