I finished a recent update to my TOS (MK-I) Colonial Viper in LDD/Bluerender. Thought I would render it with my MK-II version for comparison. The MK-I version is a major update over my previous versions and incorporates many of the building techniques from the MK-II version. Both feature nearly studless exteriors and fully retractable landing gear. It was quite a challenge to incorporate the landing gear while getting the shapes as accurate as possible in a "mini-fig" scale implementation. The cockpits are very cramped and not as detailed as I would typically like, but that was one of the compromises to achieve the overall form. Though, not apparent from the picture above, both models have studless under-bellies allowed by many of the newer "snot" bricks that are now available. The MK-II version contains 322 pieces and has been built in real bricks. It has been posted for some time and can be found in this brickshelf gallery The MK-I version contains 438 pieces and for now is a virtual model only. Other renders can be found in this gallery (when made public). Though previous iterations of the MK-I have been built, this one relies on many newer parts and will take some time to acquire via bricklink (if they exist in the desired colors). Thanks for looking, drc
The Viper Mark II is a single seat fighter aerospace craft used by the Colonial Fleet during the First Cylon War. The fighter served with distinction, proving to be a capable fighting vehicle and winning renown across the Twelve Colonies Viper Mk.II - 01 - Main by Angelo S., on Flickr Viper Mk.II - 02 by Angelo S., on Flickr Viper Mk.II - 03 by Angelo S., on Flickr Viper Mk.II - 04 by Angelo S., on Flickr Viper Mk.II - 05 - Details by Angelo S., on Flickr I recently started watching new(ish) Battlestar Galactica series and I absolutely HAD to build one of these beauties! I decided to take quite a different approach than other models (at least the ones I've seen) The cut wedge plates at the front are kind of "salvaged pieces" - I got couple damaged wedge plates of the type from a friend and throwing them away seemed like a shame because they were not entirely unusable. All in all, it counts a bit over 500 pieces, all of which are LEGO - even all the stickers (although they've been a bit cut ) I am currently in the process of making instructions in LDD. It is mainly to know what exactly I need if I decide to make a small squadron, but I might even share it when I'm done. Don't be shy to leave a comment or take a look at the photos on Flickr! I hope you like it!
