BSG Colonial MK II Viper

Post by Firespray on Tue Feb 17, 2009 9:21 pm

I started building this during the Shut Up and Build Week for FBTB, finished it a couple days after the site reopened and finally managed to take some decent looking pictures Razz I built it using Andrew's model as reference including various other Viper shots from the ChiefLug group on Flickr.



Click the image for more pictures of it Smile

I had a lot fun building this, just recently got into Battlestar Galactica and was sad that I hadn't gotten into it sooner, very cool show Smile After finishing it and seeing the scale of the model, I could only imagine how awesome Chief and ChiefLug's hangar display at BrickCon must have looked in person Hola Wow!

Lovin' the nose greeblies there, Marc, and the grilles around the engone look schweet.

Aki, I'm pretty certain Vic Vipers and Colonial Vipers are unrelated. Razz

They are? Sorry. I'm no genius when it comes to this stuff. Besides, a MK II Viper looks similar to this.

The landing gear is awesome! The cutaway showing the engine is really good as well. I wish I could build like that. Sad

For those lost, it's from the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series:



It took about a week and a half to build, had to order parts from Bricklink. It's not too hard to make one, all I did was just use pictures of Andrew's original model and various ones from the ChiefLug group on Flickr. There's different breakdown pictures of the model in those two links in the original post.

Very well done, good sir. BSG is one of my favorite, if not my favorite show. To bad there's only 4 episodes left as of last Friday. How far along are you in the series?
