I think you'd be happier with this:

(Found on eBay - item number 180362190548)





Here's the Landing Gear set:





And the Intake set:

Honestly, I don't see the attraction of the intake set. What is the advantage over the kit part? I know there is a ridge at the aft end of the intake that needs to come off but other than that, why bother?

Is the shape different?

And those landing gear are awfully heavy and complex for such a craft. Who's idea was that? Starbuck's a girl? Castillo is Adama? Come on, now.......

The walls are a bit thicker and to me they look more like the filming model. I like the 'turbines' too, plus the PITA factor of de-rimming the kit parts cannot be overstated - that's worth the ten bucks alone.

I'll have to find a pic and compare the two. Naturally, to each his own.

I took a look-see in several other sets and these were about the best of the bunch.

Cat,
I'd say they used lil ones, needing a bunch of cleanup?

I had wondered about the AM set and wethere resin would work out very well to support the craft,,,,and now seeing the work needed with them I'm content to scratch up something. I might deviate from 'canon' though? A bunch of lil wheels just don't make sense to me?

So how does a Viper land? Come in hot and hard, or is there any "hovering" involved? That will dictate what I can do with some fabbed up bits. Wheels, or skids?

Gotta remember, I confessed log ago to not watching any of the BSG series/shows/episodes.

Actually, Duck, check this out:




It's sort of like the landing gear on Antarctic-rigged C-130s.... has wheels and skis.




Here's a nose gear well I just scratched:
