    What Can I say, great build and I am looking forward to the Diorama. At that small scale, It is going to be interesting to see the crew working on the fighter. I believe that there are some mini figures from the railroading side that can be used for the deck crew, but you may have to paint and modify some of them. Are you going to make a separate thread for the diorama build? Thanks for sharing and see you around next posting.

    Thank you very much!

    I thought about hiring a group of ants and painting them orange! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    This is something I haven't decided yet. I'll think about it and keep everyone updated here.



    And, BTW, the BIG Penny is available here:

    http://davesdesigns.ca/cutandfold/html/free_paper_models.html

    It is in the "Oddball Stuff" section; it is about the size of a CD. Great illusion and a funny alternative to the scale-cubes; I think I'll make a BIG EURO-Cent model! :thumb:

    Graet work on your viper. You should take the Starbuck plate and tail number off and replace it with HUSKER. It looks like the refurbished Mark II from the first episode fresh out of the museum.

    It is great to have the Master pop in every now and then to check on his creation as built by different builders with different techniques. Thanks UHU02.

    At the moment, I have to re-do a couple of access panels that seemed to have disappeared. I have the wooden base cut out and have started on the floor plan for the maintenance bay, but those photos will come later. The Viper looks like it belongs on the base plan. Can't wait until the walls start to go up. Build on and see you all around the forum.

    Thank you all very much for your kind comments! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Well, I don't want to reveal too much about it, but there was another factory-fresh Viper in the fleet... It had a story which will be told soon..! :cool:

    That's right! :thumb:

    I'm looking forward to seeing the pics. Good luck with the dio! :thumb:

    Amazing I though this was impressive when I thought it was original size, then I see that picture showing its true size. Never been much good at building paper models myself just build for fun of it regardless. But I'm always in amazement at moderns out there who can build in such a small scale. Amazing.

    Sorry for the confusion, but I was just kidding!!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    The Viper is 1:32 scale and about 28 cm (11") long, the Penny is a paper model and about 12 cm (4.5") in diameter.

    Yes, yes, you are right, Rogerio.... And I deeply apologize.... angel

    And I guess the only way to show my deepest remorse is ... to build something small...

    Something really small...

    SOMETHING REALLY, REALLY SMALL,FOR REAL!!!

    Just take a look..! :thumb:

    That is either an astronaut or buck rogers for the starfighter.
