    Greetings to all and to all hello,

    It has been awhile since my last project. For those of you who do not know, I have spent the last year and a half studying to be a paralegal. I have just finished all of my academic studies and now am working on my internship at a local DIstrict Attorneys office.

    Now that I have free time that I can devote to actual building, I have decided to work on rebuilding my collection again. This time, I will be adding greebles and improvements (that I did not do in the initial build).

    So, as you can see by the title, I am starting off with @uhu02 Viper MK-II.

    I started with the main frame work.

    Here is another update. Now I am working of the cockpit area.
    20180722_105337.jpg

    Here is one of the side control panels
    20180722_122621.jpg 20180722_125745.jpg

    I installed the seat and the joystick box. Now, the reason why I did not greeble the seatbelts, is because, I will be having a figure sitting in the seat. So the seatbelts will not be seen.

    Here are both side control panels

    I attached both side control panels.

    I thought about making the seatbelts, but like I had mentioned, I will have a figure (more than likely a mechanic) sitting in the cockpit (like my first build). So, the seatbelts would not be seen under the figure.

    I should read first, then ask:). I thought that there must be reason for that. I must have been distracted by your pictures that I missed that coment.

    Here are a few more photos to feast your eyes upon. As you can see, I have added a bit more detail and greebles. Unfortunately, some of it will not be seen, because of where the parts are. However, I look at it this way, it gives me practice for future models!

    Thank you! I am glad that you like it.
    There is some that I added to bring more life to the model. It is a fun and enjoyable model to build.
