Group Build: BSG TOS Viper (Revellogram and Mobius)
 
1 Attachment(s)
I figured I'd start us off, I worked a good hour or so why the 4 year old was on the porch playing with Playdoh.

If the group so deems it, this can be stickied as the "offical" build thread

So here is some of my work for the day.

Not pictured, I worked on the pilot a little and the cockpit tub some. Test fit the nose section.

I would say, the kit is pretty good considering the molds are pushing 30 years old.

I did have some issues..my part nippers went missing, glued myself to the model about 3 times, my plastic weld somehow was left open (have idea who..and it wasn't me) and it all evaporated, broke the pin that the cockpit tub sits on (will still work, just makes test fitting kinda impossible now), but had a good time working on it.

Now onto working on the tub, putting the nose together, and seam and gap filling.

I kinda figured, since someone fronted me the kit, I had better get off my lazy arse and actually build it. :D

Damn, that looks just like mine...:rolleyes:
Glad to see that you're making some progress.
I did a dry test fit of the major pieces tonight but no real progress yet.

Ok, I'm in!

I dug up the ol' Viper kit from the stash and opened it up to check everything. Looks like all is well from the storage, so I'm getting pumped!

Couple questions, do you all plan to leave the V-10 "un-modified, or is anyone planning to "soup it up"?

Mine is an older kit that can be built as either the topless version OR the coupe. Which one are we actually doing?

I gotta tell y'all, I ain't never been much of a Dodge fella, but I have always dug the Viper, so I don't mind joining this one.......

So let's ROLL! I've made good progress in just a couple hours too!

:icon_thumright:

Yep!

That's the one I gots!

Cool! Stripes made it during storage mighty fine, Thank you very much.

I do need to mention something here though that's kinda got me wonderin'......

Mine don't look NOTHIN' like the one Talen just posted? Is that something to do with the accessory kit some of y'all have mentioned or somethin'?

??????

Hell, I may have to back outta this build here with y'all. I don't think I can modify mine enough to look like the one Talen posted. Nowhere NEAR that good am I, I'm afraid.

Hey Drew,

Who you talkin' to? Griff ain't even replied here.

Boy, you better not let any of the biggy bosses you work for see that your mind is slippin'!

You'll get your ticket pulled faster than a cat can lick his ass!

:eek:
