    Hi,
    I am a fan of bsg and therefore I would be interested seeing pictures of finalized bsg models.
    To start please find my fleet - will surely be enlarged in future. Last one in row is not a paper model but the moebius model.

    Looking forward seeing some pictures.

    You have quite the collection of Vipers there.
    All of them look really good.

    I can assume, that you are following the Viper appreciation thread. There are quite a few BSG models and threads around here. We need more variants of the Vipers as well as the other combat support fighters and Raptors. Keep collecting, building and sharing. Enjoy and see you around the forum.

    I agree to Revell-Fan - you can not have enough vipers to fight against the Cylons;-)))

    not enough vipers - thats still true.... now as I did not find a model of the classic viper which looks like in TV I took a model and coloured it for my own use...
    not perfect but fine for me
    - my fleet is growing slowly, but growing....:)

    YEEEEES, I know, I know! ;) As soon as the Thunderfighter cockpit 2.0 and the Aurora are ready, I'll return to the Viper! :)

    Really nice job and collection. I believe the Viper is my favorite fighter of all time. And I am so glad that when they made the new series they kept the design pretty much true to the original.

    VERY nice collection! And cute R2! Did you too notice that the tubes at the rear of the Moebius Mk. I are wrong and the nose is too long, too? Something you won't see on the upcoming model... ;)

    I saw that the models are different; especially I noticed that the noses have different length. Now as you mentioned I checked and I also see the different size of the tubes. :mad: How can this be - the Moebius Model was not cheap - nor the Model of Monogram. I thought the correct sizes should be availabe for those companies.
    Strange but not to change.

    This understrikes the need for a correct paper model. Waiting can be so hard.......

    Strangely the Y-piece of the rear section of the Revellogram is more authentic (albeit it sits too deep inside the fuselage) whereas the thrusters of the Moebius are more accurate. I guess you could achieve a better result by mixing the two kits. Or wait till "the other one" is ready for launch..! ;)

    A mix would be fine, but the models are finalized and glued. I donĀ“t think that it might be a good idea to unfix the parts. By the way - I even would not know how to do.

    Therefore I am wating for the other one to be ready for launch, as probably some others also do.;)
