    Hey, guys!
    My friend Rodmart and I received, some time ago, the old Monogram colonial viper and cylon rider models, here in Chile is kind of difficult to get sci-fi kits because they're scarse and expensive.
    After studying the model we noticed that it was accurate but short on details, compared to the Studio Scale 1/24 model, so we decided to tinker with it a bit and we ended up modifying some parts and adding more finer details.
    Here are some pictures of one of the finished resin models and the other one half way thru, so you can give us your opinions and comments!
    Thanks!!! :lol

    Most kit up-grades mean you get upgraded parts......looks like you re-casted the entire model with some up-grades. Which sounds odd to me because you guys built an entire SS X-wing?

    We were just fooling around with the kit, having fun with it; that's why we only made 12 copies.
    We needed something to relax with before our next "Studio Scale" project comes out, which will be really soon. Very nice..and Very..very..fine details.
