Well, the prequels and original BSG both came out of the original Star Wars... I guess this can work. I'm just glad you didn't mix the new show with Star Wars, too different.

This is actually my favorite MOC from you. The sloping here and there is nicely one, and it does look like a Viper. Nice job!

Congratulations on getting in the guild! Looks pretty nice overall, sleek, fast, pretty well done. But I don't really like the slope in front of the windshield. Just looks out of place.

Cool ship. I think George Lucas should buy the idea off of you and use it in the new clone wars series. Razz

That would seem unlikely but, great ship I love the wings and the front of the ship. It somewhat reminds me of an X-Wing. Razz

Hmm, it doesn't strike me as X-Wing-ish. It strikes me as Viperish. Razz

Congrats on getting it to look like a Viper, and not having to pamper it with ridiculous amounts of studlessness, SNOT, and greebles. Razz

Your story wants to make me run myself through with a sharp metal pole... but the Viper is actually very nice. I've gotten spoiled seeing some of the better ones, so I can't appreciate it as much as I'd like - however it's fairly well done. The engine elements could use some work, and I think front area of it needs to be smoothed out some (plates or SNOT).

And Clone Commander Cooper, maybe I should spit you on my metal pole, and we can roast ourselves together like some human shishkibob. Are you bloody mad? Do you not know what a Colonial Viper is!? And you want George Lucas to incorporate another series's ships (and one of the most celebrated and iconic of Sci-Fi as a genre) into his show and call it his own!

It's like having an X-Wing show up next to the Enterprise-D, and say that its a new class of Runabout! Where's that confounded roll emoticon when I need it.

I will keep that in mind for next time but the windshield is the hardest part, what do you think I shoud do to fix it?

Yes the story is...well, I can't just say "here is a Republic Viper." Wink

Just another noob... carry on.

It's nice, a bit studdy, but I like it.

Mazz, saw this in your submission to the guild, and loved it. Though it sorta reminds me of the first released X-wing, I really like the angles running up the front nose of the ship. There's something great about having studs all over the ship too- it really worked here methinks. I'm not too sure about that landing gear though. You might want to work on that a little. Razz Keep it up. Thumbs up

This MOC is the reason why you got into the Guild from me, essentially. I just started watching Battlestar Galactica online and this is indeed an amazing choice for an MOC.
