Hey guys, I finished this a while ago, just been too lazy to post it..This is the new Viper Mk 1 in 1/32 scale. I have mixed emotions about this kit, don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful kit well worth having if you're a BSG fan and have to have every Viper kit (like me!) but there are a couple of areas that think aren't 'right'. Mainly, i think the nose is too long, and the nose cap part was noticeably stepped in. That took some sanding to get rid of, and i didn't care for the pilot - He looke too emaciated, and is probably made from a casting of the Revell Viper pilot, although the helmet looked more correct. As with all Mobius kits, the parts were beautifully molded, and the thing really has a 'beefy' tough look it. And the canopy is amazingly crystal clear. Nice cockpit detail too, and you can really see whats in there after it's done! So, I took the resin cast pilot I sculpted for my Buck Rogers Starfighter and converted it into a Colonial pilot, and used the kit helmet, drilled out and added one of my own heads. The figure then got rubber molded so I could use it for other projects. I do this with all the figures I make, it comes in handy! The only other detail I added was the spring detail wrapped around the gun barrels. Everything was painted with Apple Barrel / Folkart / and some tube acrylics. The larger areas are painted using a makeup sponge, the rest with brushes. After it was all done, i airbrushed a coat of Microscale clear flat, and the windows got a coat of Future. Aside from a few nitpics, I do like the way it came out, and I kept the weathering to a minimum, a little faded paint and a wash to pick out the panel lines. Oh, I also added the details in front of the canopy too. Enjoy!
