toms_hart posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiThis is my another Vic Viper Starfighter build for Novvember 2013 challenge in Flickr Vic Viper group. Also a rough quick build, non reference original gradius model based. First time using the canopy for my starfighter build and also tried "dark green-black-reddish brown" colours combo which I think would add fierce military looks on this starfighter. Comments and inputs are always welcome for improvement. Cheers Full resolution pics : http://www.flickr.co...otos/toms_hart/
Vic Viper Starfighter build for Novvember 2013 challenge in flickr vic viper group. A quick build for Novvember 2013 warm up, non reference based but I try to capture the essential aesthetics of Gradius Vic Viper which are dual forward prongs, two side wings and single tail fin.

Well, I was planning on doing something for Novvember this year, and after about 5 hours of frustration and artists' block, I finally was able to finish my very-own. After seeing some of the ones already posted, I'm almost ashamed to post this here, but I figured someone might like it. I can tell you it was one copper-plated pain in the butt to build this thing, but over all I like how it turned out. I may eventually add more flick-fire missiles later, but here it is for now.... -Begin Transmission- Classification: Secret To: Dr. Bones, Chief Director, Federal Intelligence Agency Subject: Skull Clan Vic Viper Space Fighter Status: Confirmed. Viper Pose by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr Chief Director Bones, as you know, the Skull Clan is one of the most notorious raider groups in the Wastes, somehow able to match even the Federal Dragoons, Airborne Demolitions Unit (ADU) and Lone Star Texas Rangers in combat. Side view by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr Latest intel gathered by our friends in the ADU indicates that they somehow managed to obtain plans and materials to build a Viper Class space fighter. Initial reports indicate that it's armament consists of four blasters, similar to the ones used on the ADU mobile Command center, twin 40mm auto cannons and dual laser cannons as well as at least two Merculite Missile launchers. Top View by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr Attached are photos of the Viper, along with its pilot at an ad-hoc landing pad in a Skull Clan outpost in the Wastes near New Boise. Pilot pic by Hikaro Takayama, on Flickr How the Skull Clan has managed to obtain such advanced weapons and materials in the Wastes is still unknown. Even more worrying is where they got the blueprints for a Viper in the first place, since, to the best of our knowledge only the Federal Republic of America and ADU had the plans and production capabilities. We currently have our best intelligence operatives working on finding out. -End of Transmission- I hope you enjoyed my Viper, and the back story. I was planning on making a Viper for one of the bad guy factions in my setting, but was having trouble finding enough parts to build anything in the initial color schemes I wanted to (Red & Dark Bley, Dark Bley Light Bley and Black, or Black and Red), when It hit me that I had plenty of parts in White and Black as well as a TON on trans Neon Green parts. So I ended up dismantling my old Bi-Wing Baron set, the Pharaoh's Quest plane and the one (of two) Spyrius combo pack sets that I still had built up and started building. The end result was basically a Neo-Blacktron II color scheme, which I think fits with the Skull Clan's pilot uniforms (the primary colors of the ground pounders is Dark Bley, Light Bley and Black), and gives the possibility of a tie-in with the Grand Duchy of New York (which is what Old-School Blacktron evolved into in my setting, and they use the Blacktron I colors for their space ships).... In addition, it finally gave me a use for a good number of previously useless parts (namely the really long white curved slope bricks as well as those old wings that they used on the original Adventurers biplanes). I also have two more Vic Vipers in the works that are mods of the Raid VPR Space Police III set, but I'm still not 100% happy with them at the moment....
