    At 17" in wingspan this baby is big. Lots of fun to build..but lots of work too. Anyways...I wanted to share her with you all. Hope you like. This one is a commission for a very very very patient buyer. It took far to long to finish ...but I hope he, and you like the results.

    Cheers and Happy new year.

    I'd hoped for a better day to take some pictures outside..but no such luck, so these are a bit dark...(my indoor lighting is terrible...I need to buy some lights. )

    Awesome work. The lights add a nice touch to the whole model. I'm sure the buyer will be quite pleased. Good job.

    Beautiful kit and a wonderful build, great job.

    Every time I see one of these built I want one more. Are these kits still available or are they another opportunity missed?

    What did you use for the base color, Jesse? I used Gunship Grey on my old Monogram model, but having recently re-watched the series for the first time in years, my model seems too dark. I've got one of your kits on order, and I'd like to use a more accurate paint color.

    I've always interpreted the Raider as being darker than the Viper, is that in fact correct?

    I believe the Raider is darker then the Viper...but not a ton darker. I used Tamiya Sky Grey, but I don't know if thats accurate, just looked close. Sky Grey is close, but needs to be a bit bluer. I manually adjusted mine, but Im still looking for the "right" color. Anyone?
