Thanks for the link, AWW NUTS THOUGH .

Almost ALL the images are GONE from
the Thread... :(

I didn't see it mentioned, is this a studio scale
model or a 1/32 scale ??? I thought I read it was
the same as the Monogram Viper I just don't remember
what the scale of THAT one was ????

The MJ Viper is 1/24, or Studio Scale, and is reworked from a studio casting.

The Monogram kit is 1/32 scale.

Hi All. I'm the "infamous" MJ. :)

I bought the patterns for this kit from their previous owner. They originate from Icons and were originally cast from a prop by Icons for their Viper. Since Icons 3 other artists have worked on the patterns to clean them up, and fix many of the Icons flaws, but not fix things to the point that it wouldn't be studio accurate. I have been the most recent person to work on it and replaced a lot of the details on the kit that had become soft over the years in the side and engine section with original kit parts. The Viper is 1/24th scale (or therabout) and close to 15" long.

Please feel free to ask me more questions and Ill do my best to answer. Also, please feel free to email or PM me. I'm a big BSG fan and just having a blast being involved. :p :$

Got mine too. :D

This is much crisper than any SS Viper I've ever seen. Awesome casting.

There is a a bit of distortion to the engine exhausts, but as I understand it that's normal and just the same as the studio models. Doesn't "look right" without it. :D

In short :thumbsup

Really really glad everyone is pleased with the casting job. I do this for fun, and I fine with each project I have done over the years I learn new tricks. This latest project has really been a wonderful experience...with pieces coming out with minimal to no seams, no flash, and easy flowing molds...very very cool. :$

I'm looking forward to getting mine. I opted for the finished build-up...can't risk buggering it up.
