I know, right?!? :lol

My thinking right now is to clean them all up, then primer them - very carefully and likely with a brush - , and then figure out how the Hell I'm going to paint them, exactly. I guess brush coat the base and use a sewing pin to put the paint on...? :facepalm

Jesus, are those Vipers? Man, I wouldn't even try to put stripes on 'em. Maybe you could paint the canopies with a technical pen or something. Maybe.

Oops! Mea culpa, I missed those two posts inquiring about the Vipers. My apologies.

I received them at a WonderFest past - I don't recall for sure what year. Alcohol was involved and it was late at night in the Suite of the Living Dead (simply put, a non-sponsored suite for folks to go and hang out in for hours after the days official events end) and alcohol was involved. I *think* that I know who it was, a graphic designer with a sideline business of producing kits in 1/2500 scale. However, I don't want to give a name, as I'm not 100% for certain.

Regardless, I don't think that they're actually 1/4105 scale. I thought that they were roughly 1/2500 scale, given a length of 28.5' / m for a TOS Viper, a 1/4105 scale Viper should be .08" / 21mm. However, they're not, as these measure out to right about 5mm long and 3.5mm wide. That gives us a scale of 1/1737, using a scale calculating called ScaleMaster.
