    Friends.

    My actual scratchbuilding project is a scene representing a Gradius 1 diorama.

    For those who do not know, Gradius is an old shoot 'n' up game for the 80' s
    has developed continuations for him today (Gradius V to Play 2 and Gradius Rebirth for Wii)

    The first step is a construction of ship player, the Vic Viper Mk I.

    I'm building with small pieces of paper 120g the canopy is make with layers of PVA glue...

    Thank's people!!!!

    Gradius 2 is purchase by download for Nintendo WII, is a PC Engine Port very close the arcade version.

    My little model represents e Vic Viper (Warp Rattler) for Gradius 1 the inspiration source is a Gradius NES version cover and manual...

    I'm not decide what stage represent in dio, but my choose is a antennoid stage, but i'm think why represent antenoid enemys (is a cell form), but my intention is build and represent with papier machĂȘ technique. :mrgreen:

    I loved the Gradius series of games in the arcade.

    Salamander was my favourite.
