    Hi, guys!

    Thank you, Joel! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Those are very nice gestures from the both of you :thumb:

    Your cockpit is gonna look absolutely great with those textures and I have no doubt you will put them right were they belong.

    This is going to be a real marvelous Viper.

    Great work.

    Cheers,
    Elko

    Hmm...

    I know the original series Vipers, didn't have call signs below the canopy, but perhaps offering Joel a kit with the option of his own personal call sign on it might be an adequate "THANK YOU!"...

    Good idea

    That's a very good idea, totally agreed! Maybe "rank", full name and call sign (this one chosen by him, of course)?
    All the best,

    Rogério

    Ahem, not that anyone of you mentioned it... Such a Viper is already on the list and will be released, too. It will become a mix of the classic Mk. I and the Mk. II with call signs, maneuvering thrusters and a slightly different paint scheme, similar to this magnificent build:

    http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=34519

    I was thinking about taking this one for the Alpha build but I'm not quite sure since there is another paint scheme which has a certain appeal to me...

    That is a very interesting design-bash/kit-bash for the Viper.
    It would make for an interesting "stepping stone" design. I would say that it would be designated MK-1.5?

    Mmmm. Nice build and finish on that Viper. Pity about the undisguised model truck leaf spring as a greeble............. Please dont tell me that is on the original prop ??????????????????:eek::rolleyes:

    R-F, I am starting to turn blue from continuous bated breath, in my excitement to add your model to the top of my build list.......:thumb::mrgreen:

    I love the Mk.1 ....

    You mean that little triangle on the front of the trapezoid shapes beneath the high engine? Yep, it was there all the time... And it will return on this one, too! :twisted:

    I would not be surprised if it was. The engine hull detailing on the Galactica was tank bodies.

    X-wing had a ship deck on it, I don't see why a part of a truck would be a problem. There were some on Falcon too :D

    True, but a little better disguised...
    I was always under the impression that model detailers first rule of thumb, is to DISGUISE the source of the greeble........... In this case, it is obviously not so......

    Oh well, at least the Viper will have good suspension!!!! sign1

    Obviously a spare part for the Landram or the Turbobike! :mrgreen:

    Just imagine what MacGyver could have done if he had found a crashed Viper..! :cool:
