    If you want to build it, by all means, do so. It is not a difficult as it looks. It is a GREAT BUILD (it is FUN and ENJOYABLE). Just take it slow and easy all the way straight through it.
    I would strongly recommend going through the UHU02 Colonial Viper appreciation thread for anyone wanting to build this model. It feature a number of different members (including myself) building this model and how they went about it.

    Great work. I see that you also embellished the wiring using metal wire for the tubing. Thanks for sharing.

    I truly don't want to step on anyone's toes, but you have made the cleanest, most squared, plumb, and aligned parts with a fit and finish of all of these I have seen, and I mean, ALL OF THEM. I hope you take your time and keep the standard high on this upcoming Model of Merit. :)

    I see a few familiar techniques and some modifications to the parts. On resin illuminati, there is a tutorial on the wiring and lights process of the Viper. Your build is coming along great. Do you plan on making a static display or a diorama? Thanks for sharing and waiting to see more of your stuff.
