Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper MK.II

Postby flashinglizard » Tue Jan 31, 2017 4:33 pm

Revell 1:32 scale

Decided it was time to do one of the first models I bought. I think it was this model I saw on youtube that inspired me to take up the hobby (over a year now). + I want to keep on top of my kits and not have too many on the TO-DO list. Have some WAVE Ma.k. on the way :)

Not too much in it really. But its still taking me a long time to do!....

Nice work Derek! Great close-up photos... I like the detail in the cockpit.

Looking forward to seeing what you do when it comes to weathering and battle damage :D

A little progress..
The white is harder than I thought to do.
Made a right job of trying to putty out the seam line :-)

I like this kit a lot. Great for me, getting into the modelling. The kit probably couldn't be too much easier.
I did try remove the center seam-line with mr. putty and made a bit of a mess :) Ill soldier on!
Will be putting on the decals next.
Im thinking of drilling small holes where the exhaust vents are on around the front nose. Will look at reference pics more.
