    Glad to see your process in your Viper - it looks great.

    I did this model too. It was my first one and you can imagine how it turned out. Based von your pictures I would say that also the Viper oft UHU will be a model you should be able to build. It is worth doing.

    Ok I finally got back on doing the viper. I made the base next, so that I could put the model on it while I put the parts together. I then started doing both engines at the same time, but I only made it this far. I did use a red marker for the tip of the viper, and a black one for the tip of the rear engines. I will post more as I do more.

    And here are the guns, which finishes the model. By the way any body got a enlarger/shrink ray gun which would make this easier. I know Rhaven Blaack must since all his detailed Thunder fighters look so good:rolleyes:. Next time can I borrow it:D. I want to take some outside pictures of the model so it can be seen in better lighting.

    Excellent build, blake! As I recall there are not many build threads on this model out there. In fact, yours might be the third or fourth I have ever seen (NJ was the first, then came Loenf's build...). :)

    I am sorry, but I do not have an enlarger/shrink ray gun. When you are able to make it, you can use my build threads as a guild.

    You did a GREAT JOB on this model!!!
    I am looking forward to seeing your next project.

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
