Another Viper - aw geeze

I hope you all aren't tired of seeing Viper builds.

I was stressing about starting this kit, because I couldn't find the right color of light blue at the Auto Zone, but I found this color at Wal-mart and thought it was close enough to work with.

It's from Krylon (not Cylon) and goes by the manly name of "Peekaboo Blue"

out of the can it's a little too "My Little Pony" but if you spray it lightly over the grey primer, I think it tones it down rather well. when it is almost completely dry, I ran a sanding sponge over it going from front to back. It knocked down the high spots and let the grey show thru. It will give me a good base for the final weathering (once the decals are put down)

I highly recommend Paul's etch cockpit, but you will need to have that dremel handy to make room in the fuselage for it.

I should be able to wrap this up this weekend.

Thanks to team Moebius for another great kit!

Enjoy, dissect, discuss

Very nice. Love the fact that you have the cockpit light. does look like it could use a pilot and a good wax job :p

Hi!

It was good that a conformity color was found.:)
I had a hard time to make the color of the red stripe of Mk.2.
The etching parts cockpit is splendid.
I look forward to watching a finished model.:thumbsup
