those panels inside looks great...
I have to agree with dnalor there Silver, those access panels look fantastic, you are bringing this one to life.
Been busy with a couple of other vipers, but I will be back soon with more build updates. Here are a couple of real life Vipers. The ones indicated are my grandsons, and no, none of them are named Starbuck or Apollo. The pink shirts are in support of breast cancer aware week. Enjoy and see you all soon with build in progress updates.
Yours actually works, doesn't it.
@ Silveroxide: Thank you for sharing such GREAT photos of your other Viper SQUAD!
I am sure that you are quite proud of them all!!!
Exactly what I wanted to say! :thumb:
You know, UHU has been so detailed minded in the building of this Viper, that the plans can actually be super-sized and a 1:1 can be made possible. Now where can I find some trylion fuel for it?
Thanks for the comments on the Viper baseball team, my grandson was not amused when I refer to them as the pink ladies or the Hello Kitty team. He looked at me like I had three heads, "It is for breast cancer awareness month Grandpapa" he would politely remind me.
Anyhow, when I upscaled it, I did it by eyeballing the pages and did not use the Gimp program for maintaining the ratio equalized. The fit is close enough but there are some parts that I have to trim or add to it to make them fit. If I were to have made it as intended, I would not have been able to slip the skin over the framework. UHU did not allow for tolerances and it is a very tight fight made for exact measurements. In spite of that, it is still coming out as planned for a diorama set. Enjoy and see you all soon with more updates as I get some time to build. See you all around the forum.:thumb:
Excellent workmanship Silver!!
I am envious, in a good way, that my present situation has not allowed me to build any models, but I am vicariously enjoying the works of all of you guys, it's truly wonderful!!
Totally agreed with the quality of your work. Astounding!:thumb: :thumb:
Besides, I'm also in a situation in which I can't build anything, but the "itch" is killing me! :boom:
@ Silveroxide: As always, the detail that you are putting into this is ABSOLUTELY BEYOND BELIEF!!!
@ Rogério: You do know that there is a cure for "ITCHES" like that, do you not?
The cure is quite simple. START BUILDING AGAIN!!!
I myself tried to assambe the UHU viper. I managed to do but not as perfect as I can see on the photos of the other buildings. Thanks to all who give detailed information and pics - they were very helpful.
My viper is without landing gears - as the are alway flying their patrols
I would, if I could... But I don't have space... YET!
@starbuck: Hey, that's number 2! Congratulations on a very fine build. Don't underestimate your build; she looks beautiful! :thumb:
I only need to add the flaps to the tool room door and make the instructions for the door to finish the parts for the hangar bay section dio. After that I will return to my bird (and my special dio..! :twisted
(BTW, if someone is complaining about dents, smudges or anything like that on a BSG model, I say it's BATTLE DAMAGE! The more the better! :mrgreen: )
Tyrol's Deck crew.
Taking the advice and guidance from Silveroxide. I have repainted Tirick's X-Wing Pilot to look like on of Tyrol's Deck crew. Here are the photos.
I plan on making three more.
Keep it comin', RB, keep it comin'..! :thumb:
That is okay Zathros, Your checking in now and then is worth the while.
Well one way to achieve the space problem, is to build in microscale, that way, you can store the models in a shoe box, as for myself, I cannot build that small, it hurts my eyes.
Thanks, for the kudos. I am still working on it and getting around some fit issues that I created myself, but it is coming along nicely.
You are welcome to use the build tread as a reference, in order to make a great model in which you achieved that great result with your viper. The CAP is always out taking care of the fleet but you may want a pilot in the seat, or maybe this Viper is turned into a pilot-less drone.idea1
Good show on the grease monkeys, I will be there soon with my build sequence on the figs. Tiricks figures are one version that I am working with.
Well, it has been a bit slow going for now but the project continues with more build ideas. I made a drastic error in the intake fan ducts, I glued and set them upside down, but it still gets the results needed. For some reason, some of my photos came out darker than usual. I hope that the light senor is not going out on my camera. I hate to use flash. It is either that, or I will have to construct a light source for the photo shoot. Enjoy and keep the vipers coming, I am almost to the end of this project and then on to the hangar and the accessories that go with it as well a the figures. Enjoy and see you all next posting.:thumb:
Looks great. Not too perfect either, like she's seen some acton. Nice!
Those service panels really add the touch of "REALISM" to the model as a whole.
I really like how your build is turning out.
Great work, silver! I'm about to attach my first wing, so stay tuned for new updates!

OK, here we go again! (FINALLY! :thumb: )
First of all, we need GUNS:
The parts are wrapped around each other to form a tube with increasing diameter from front to back. I deviated from the original plans and wrapped the first tube around a wooden rod to increase stability and to make the rolling and shaping easier.
The other layers are attached according to the master's plans. Apparently my paper was not thick enough to achieve the diameters required for the next layer. So I had to insert several pieces of scrap paper to make the upcoming layers fit as intended.
When everything was in place I made use of an old modeler's trick: I drilled a hole into the front of the barrel to create the illusion of an open muzzle. This hole is painted later.
BEWARE, m+++rfrakking toasters!!! :mrgreen:
