My thoughts on the project being......

I picture this pilot being a guy from the later time period of BSG. He is a gear head of sorts, and while on leave or something somewhere one day, he happens across a old, rusty, beat to hell MK-1....

Being the gear head that he is, he hauls it home and spends the next few years or so restoring it back to new.

This is his first flight in it after finally getting it finished.

Yes????...NO????....
Waddaya think.
Sounds pretty good to me.
Nice work on it so far as well.

Namaste

I worked on mine on and off all weekend but my interwebz access was broken due to all the storms so I will have to get some pics up tonight.

You really take for granted that whole "I'll just jump on the computer and upload some images real quick" thing and then when it's broke, you're miserable.

I got the nose puttied and sanded but my filling and sanding-fu is poor so all I did was annoy the gaps on the bottom of the nose. I need a tutorial on filling and sanding....

I weathered the engine nozzles and the plumbing.

I masked the canopy and got that painted. Though it wasn't without some cursing....I spent 20 mins masking and carefully cutting the tape, then when I held it out to check it I had masked THE FREAKING FRAMES, NOT THE WINDOWS!

grrr...

At the request of The Cat, here are some pictures of a Viper I did.
These are some shots of Captain Ishtar 'Lady Killer' Dolyn. Squadron Leader of the Starwolves, Regal Group.

I have always loved the Original Series. Especially the hardware. But I thought something may have been missing (as I was growing older and lost my "Movie Magic Beliefs" (sort of), and decided that the MkI was a beautiful design, but that I'd add RCTs to the Viper and bridge the magic with some reality.

The Star Wolves is a squadron of my own creation (as is the graphic. I airbrushed the Wolf's head, and used a Star from a A/M US fighters decal set).


The Napoleonic Violet stripes are a custom order from JBOT, as is the name/call sign.


Closeup of the Squadron Emblem. A newer design was done, at my request, by Kylwell and is actually part of the Replacement decal set offered by SSM.


Lower Bank shot.


Right Bank.


This is a MkI-a Viper. The exhausts are ones I made (and are available for sale at the SSM Store. I have also made Clear ones, if interested. ).


Replaced Nose Panel.


The Pilot, with a scratchbuilt Battlestar Olympia emblem.


Closeup of the Cockpit.


Closeup Exhaust.


And the Lower Fuselage.


The details I used for the Intakes and panel access' and refueling Ports are from a decal set of a F-104 (I believe).

I hope you enjoy these shots.

Namaste
April

Excellent shots, and thank you. You hit the exact and precise theme of this build, long before the thread came into being. Your own Viper, your own back story, everything.


SEE FELLAS, I TOLD YOU THE VIPERS HAVE TIME MACHINES!!!! TRY *THAT* WITH THOSE OVER-BUILT X-WINGS!

I think that if they had thought of 'em and could have pulled it off, they would have. They belong.

I WAS THISCLOSE>< to getting a set of those!

EDIT: The ensuing passages were deleted because they contain mental images and descriptions of things, substances, and physical acts that are contrary to the laws of man, nature, and the Lords of Kobol. I myself now require extensive therapy to rid myself of these thoughts - especially the one with the defecating banana. - Admin
