    This is another ship I really always loved. Despit only a limited appearence it's always captured my imagination. Now, thanks to many it will happen.

    This version is not my work, but rather the work of a very talanted anonymous artist. At least one other person may take their hand to it once the first artist is done, and outside us several others have been helping me collect information about the model. As always, my hope is to involve as many people as possible to make this as accurate as possible.

    Hope some of you are as pysched as I.

    Jesse,
    You are bad. No presents for you. Leave all of your model work under the tree, I'll be taking it back to the Pole with me. Before departing, you'll get reindeer * down the chimney, your house is now a pit stop for us.

    How did you go wrong, son? Oh, let me count the ways... Viper, Raider, Pilots, now this...

    The original miniature was in the last Profiles in History auction, so the two quarter-view shots are from the catalog.

    The nose shot is a frame grab from the show on DVD.

    Jesse, you wicked soul .... If my girlfriend ever takes my babydaughter away from me and leaves, because I use to many hardearned cubits on models, it will be your fault entirely :(


    Naaaaaaa, just kidding, mate. No hard feelings.

    I have a long wishlist of kits from BSG and 2001 .. Guess you've just added a kit to that list. Eeeek .. My poor economy ...

    Well, I'll enjoy watching the progress of this project, while I wait for your Raptor to arrive.

    Cheers

    That looks really good.

    I don't recall the episode that they had that Version of Viper,
    it's interesting though.

    It was "The Longest Patrol" I believe. Starbuck got hit over the head by a smuggler and he ended up getting pulled over by this fighter.

    What kit are the gribblies from?
    I am trying to build a Monogran Viper 1/32 version.
    I know your kit gribblies would be to big, but maybe I could score a smaller kit or a similar kit that has the required pieces.

    Thanks, Barry.
