    Apologies to the originator! I have forgotten where I got this model from oand it's a wonderful one! I downloaded it many months ago and let it just sit before I finally had the time (and patience) to make it, please if anyone knows who's it is say so here!

    before I did make it I opened it up in photoshop and retextured/coloured from top to bottom using realworld metallic textures and even cropping bits from photographs of studio scale models of the original Viper.

    It is my first ever completed model so please go easy on me about the wonky bits!

    :D

    The original is from here
    http://www.geocities.jp/papertoy_box/
    or you might have gotten the retextured version from sirius replicas
    at any rate you should try to contact the author and get permission to post your repaint in the downloads section (that is if you are willing) Im sure there are a bunch of people who would love to build it (myself most definately included)
