    The Viper Mk.II is Uhu02's Viper enlarged from 1/50 to 1/35 scale with no other modifications. I drew the diorama base and wall in Photoshop using free sci-fi textures from the Internet. I also drew the jack stands and the scaffold in Photoshop. They will soon be available as freebies at

    A last-minute addition to the diorama - some things will never change:

    Very nice indeed. You could clutter it up even more with some of the specific equipment in the Resource Section, but it stands on it's own, it's Excellent!! :)

    This model looks better eery time I look at it,.

    I would advise that everyone building a plane with removable panels, to put a thin strip on the edges of the bulkheads, as this is how the skin is held on, and what helps the ship have an exoskeleton. It also looks better, and that's because it looks more "real". ;)

    That looks FANTASTIC! If I may offer a suggestion? It seems that the base edge is unfinished. When you build a diorama, always finish the base edges, as it's like a 'frame' on your picture, and just adds a final neat touch that makes a difference. This comes from my old military miniature days, when the base was a really important part of the presentation. Even painting it a simple satin black looks nice and will add an extra touch of class to an already excellent diorama.
