    I am sorry for being a "KILL JOY", but ASC does have a very valid point about the cats.
    This thread is to show the progress of UHU02s VERY WONDERFUL VIPER BUILD!
    I do not want him (or anyone else) to get upset that the thread is being high-jacked like this.
    So PLEASE no more cat photos (this even goes for me as well!!!).

    Yes, I agree. Let's get back to business and see the progress on this OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD model. :thumb:

    To UHU02:


    Dear UHU02,

    you are a magician.

    We have the deepest respect for you, and this little deviation was caused only because we are so amazed by your skills. Please accept our deepest apologies if we have overdone it a bit. What you are presenting to us here is simply beyond imagination. We are all looking forward to seeing more of your unbelievable and unique craftsmanship which gives birth to so many high quality models which have never been seen, made or even thought of before.

    Thank you for this honour.

    Kind regards

    RF

    "Genious work" and "art" are weak words for what I see here. "Masterpiece" would do it justice, but then, it's another one from the generous, genious, artist, man that creates and shares them with us just for fun.
    Oh, boy, I should post this in the UHU02's appreciation thread...
    Whenever I think UHU02 has reached the top, he just goes even further, pushing all the limits. Again.
    I just can't wait!

    This is soooooo mind-blowing, it's hard to believe it's not a real functioning Viper that can fly! The amount of talent and above all, patience, Uhu has is just unbelievable. I'm in awe....

    Okay, that is it, The X-wing is a cake walk compared to this. From what I see, it is way too intimidating a build for me. The only way I would build this, is to change my printers property to poster size and make it larger. maybe about Barbie size and turn barbie into Starbuck. My fingers could not handle all of those fiddly small parts that make this into a masterpiece. In fact, the plans made into poster size would make for a nice framed poster as well. Fantastic job and I am in awe.

    No more cat jokes? Darn, and I was just getting ready to mentioned the cat incident between Raquel Welch, Johnny Carson and her Siamese Cat.

    I couldn't have said it any better. This is simply unbelievable. The way he created the panel structure of the wings... The cockpit interior... The naked thrusters...

    Well another amazing UHU02 model done and ready for download. I've decided to stop doing the UHU02 threads, I tried to report on the progress of this amazing artist and inject a bit of humour in along the way but apparently the kittens were to far and despite people joining in(including UHU02) it seems that one comment liking the thread to Facebook was enough to call a halt to the shenanigans. Which is fine, I'm not sure that there was ever any implication of disrespect to UHU02 that warranted an apology but then better safe than sorry. Given all this and the fact that if I can't indulge in playful banter then I can't really offer anything to a thread so I will leave it to one of the many able members to tell you of UHU02's next masterpiece. Thanks for the support enjoy the amazing model the UHU02 has given to the community and of course thank you UHU02. I look forward to the next model.

    Uhu, I have downloaded your viper and would like to thank you for a great creative model and design. Thank you again for generosity in sharing your works. I just hope that my big fingers can handle those small pieces. Take care, live long and prosper.

    This is so unbelievably beautiful. The use of layering to build up the engines is nothing short of inspirational. Your further skill in the precision of the build process is mind boggling. I bow to your imagination and skill.

    Domo arigato, Uhu-san.

    Wow...

    Wow...

    WOW!!!

    With marking for BOTH Starbuck's and Apollo's planes!

    THANK YOU UHU!!!

    ...And cats are appropriate for this discussion:

    Adama: Starbuck, what do you hear?
    Starbuck: Nothing but the rain.
    Adama: Then grab your gun and bring in the cat.

    (Ok, maybe not THAT appropriate... :mrgreen:)
