    The complete one is from the new BSG, this one will feature the 1978 version.

    This is the diagram that I used as a guide to recolour it.

    When I was a kid, my mother and I would watch both BSG and BRTC25 together. She also gave me a tremendous amount of encouragement when I first started paper modeling. At times, she would help me with some of my builds. So as a memorial to her, I built this fighter. I just wish she were still alive to have seen it. I know that she would have cherished it GREATLY.

    Mk. IV update

    Hello folks!

    A little update on the Mk. IV: The general shape is set and ready for texturing. I'll have to cut out a hole for the cockpit and make the interior.

    CU - with a textured Mk. I fin! :wave:

    Thank you! :wave:

    The Mk. IV is canon but there is a very sad story about her: She was supposed to become the star of a new BSG continuation series by Tom DeSanto & Brian Singer in 2001. The project was in full swing when suddenly Singer left to direct "X-Men". Production continued even though, sets and two Viper mock-ups were built, masks and costumes were made. What happened then is a bit foggy, but it is said that 9/11 had some impact on the decision to freeze the endeavour. In the end everything was shelved and all sets - including the Vipers - were tossed into a landfill. :cry:

    Here you can see the original Mk. IVs:
