    I finished the latest viper - this time, sporting the new Apollo sculpt that Jesse is now offering. Seperate helmet, accurate clothing (even has the leg board/calculator thing which you can't even see once assembled.)... highly impressed with the likeness.

    That's a studio scale or a monogram?

    They are for the studio scale Viper. I posted a thread in the models forum, but for those who missed it here is a little information:
    __________________________________


    So, for those of you who don't know, I own the patterns that were used for the Icons studio scale Viper. This is the Viper from the original series and is (IMO) the closest thing to the real thing going. Ive been doing small changes and additions to the kit. Many have worked on it before me, and I wanted to do my part. One thing I wanted to see done from the beggining was new figure options. The figure done for the kit (by our own Propsculptor) is awesome, but its just one option. I eventually want a few of these babies to display, and wanted more options. In particular, I wanted a female pilot, some standing figures to go with the display, and options for pilots without their helmets (in case I wanted to model it on the ground with the canopy open) Jim Maddox was nice enough to help me out with the figure modeling. The female seated pilot isn't done yet, and neither is the standing male figure, but the seated male, and standing females are done, so I thought I would share some pictures. Im personally really excited about this. Im going to build the next viper for me on the ground, canopy up, with Sheba standing in front of it, her helmet sitting on the nose. I cant wait.

    Seated male figure. (Note the added leg computer, and different jacket setup...so it will look different in formation with the original Icons figure)

    Couple other notes...the seated figure is coming with the heads for Boomer, Starbuck and Apollo (6 heads total...3 with hair and 3 cut down to fit the helmet) The helmet is cast in clear resin so it can be lit.

    Ill post some pictures of the castings tonight.

    Happy Holidays all.
