    Im currently working on this baby. It's made to scale our model of the Viper MK2 version. It's about 45 cm long or 1'6" more or less. This version is prepared for optional landing gear with bays.
    Enjoy the shots, and NO, don't PM me for further info. I still have a lot of work:)

    This is the one I've been waiting for. I can see that you have a great start on the form there. That's always the hard part. I can't wait for this kit. But it's better that I have to.

    Oh yeah, I like how the renshape or whatever it is you are using is a similar color to what the MK VII is. LOL. Let's us get even more of an idea of what this beauty will look like.

    Fantastic....... I really am looking forward to getting one of these beauties...

    Oh I've heard that the MK VII is going to be taking a more prominent role in the series so it is getting a more jazzed up paint scheme..

    Looking VERY sweet Moe . :D

    I have to ask, what's the length of this beast ? I know the
    " other " Mk.7 out there that's supposed to be 1/24th scale isn't
    so I was curious if this puppy is ? ;)

    Oh, and yes, the new Mk.7's in Season 3 have a new Pegasus
    paint scheme to them.. Very cool looking...

    { Al's not the only one who " knows " things... } :rolleyes

    :D

    Thanks
    The lenght is about 45 cm, (about 17 inches or so) it's made to match or model of the MK2 version.
    They are about 1/20 scale.

    Ok, THANKS Moe.. I was just curious as I know
    Lee posted offical sizes some time back so everyone
    would know the size { CGI size that is... ;) } of the Fighters
    on the show... :D

    Looking forward to seeing MORE goodies soon . :thumbsup

    Well, I know the " other " Mk.7 out there is supposed
    to be 15 inches in length. According to the CGI ship sizes
    posted by Lee S. the Mk. 7 dimensions are...

    Viper Mk7
    Width: 5.61m
    Length: 9.8643m
    Height: 2.9508m



    So that would mean to get 1/24th it should be
    a tad over 16 inches in length... :angel

    With BSG starting again (at least, in the US), I thought this needed a healthy bump. Any more progress pics that can be shared yet? Pretty please...? :D

    Seriously, take all the time you need. This is going to rock when it's ready.

    Been a while anything new?

    Also, Frank and Moe, would you guys consider also doing the new "Super Viper" that was shown in the previous episode? I call the MK VII seen in "Maelstrom" a Super Viper because differences between it and the previous MkVII CG model are like the differences between a Legacy F/A-18c Hornet and the F/A-18e Super Hornet.

    If anyone hasn't seen it or didn't notice the Maelsrtom "Super Viper" had new/redisigned intakes....the intakes next to the canopy are now more angular and pronounced and they taper back along the engine housing in a more angular shape. There are now new intakes below the wings that appear to connect to the reshaped upper intakes. The wing LERX are now shaped much like the Super Hornets, they now have a nice curve and don't go as far forward. Lastly, the whole nose is completely reshaped, it's more like a MK II's now...wider and more angular and less pointy like the MK VII's usually have.

    Yes, the new design is VERY cool. Not really
    a " re-design ", more like a good tweak of the exsisting
    design.

    Don't worry, I have NO doubt that the " newer " Mk. 7
    will be kitted in the near future.... :love


    Oh, and if you think THAT " tweaked " design look's
    sweet just keep your eye's peeled in the future Ep's for the new
    ADVANCED RAIDER .

    Well, I hate to take us OFF TOPIC of Moe's baby again
    but to answer a question.. The AR, or ADVANCE RAIDER
    will be show VERY BRIEFLY in the finale of BSG... I'm afraid
    that for the " beauty shots " of it you will need to wait until
    Season 4 premiers to see it in FULL GLORY....

    :cry :cry :cry

    {{ Which STINKS since it is VERY cool .... }}

    Anywho, BACK TO YOU MOE.. Let's see some PIC'S DUDE .


    Since it's REALLY obvious the " OTHER " Mk.7 in 1/24th out
    there is no where NEAR as good as your's .

    { Or SAFELY AVAILABLE TO BUY... LOL.... :p }

    Are they doing the 1st season Mk7 or the 3rd season Mk7? 3rd Season is much improved, like that design a lot. 1st season is too George Jetson for me.
