    I just aquired a resin studio scale Viper, and I'm wondering if anyone here has tackled this project, and could post pictures of their work.

    Also, can anyone post a list of colors and types of paints used in the process. What color white, red, grey, etc. In addition, any weathering techniques would be helpful too!

    I hope you guys can help!

    <font color="#FFCC00"> Actually you did post my Viper,
    or at least a copy of the one I helped restore.

    I was one of the many skilled workers at Icons who worked on Various projects and had nothing to do with those who misappropriated the funds that should have gone into shipping overdue products.

    I also sculpted the Viper Pilot from a lot of reference pics and even scratch-built the Viper cockpit interior.

    The Viper we restored had a lot of air-bubbles in the casting, and needed a lot of work before it would be ready to be molded.

    There was also a Cylon Ship casting they were going to have us restore next!

    I was able to get a casting of the Viper Pilot and Cockpit,
    but not the complete Viper as the company had promised.

    To this day I believe the Viper is still one of the best spaceship designs!
