PapertoyBox BSG Viper

I'm in the process of trying out paints on the test model for my Land Raider, and I was itching to build something. So I thought I'd give the BSG Viper from the original series [1] a go.

So far I've got the engines completed. I think next up is the cockpit and nose.

The model is nice. Nothing too complicated, except for the main body between the engines, that took me two gos to get the order of things right.

Very nice. I'm building a "blue squadron" one (same designer I think).

Thanks Phantom! I like the design. It has few parts, but the resulting curves and shapes are pretty cool. The original Vipers are my favorite starfighters. I think I'll have to scratchbuild a launch tube to display it on.

I've finished the fuselage and the tail. The wings are done but still need their cannons before I glue them on.

You are doing a very good job on this project.
If you are interested, here is another model of the (TOS) Viper that is pretty good:

Thanks guys!

@Rhaven, from that page it looks like a repaint + some modifications of the one I'm building now. I might do another build of this fighter, using these plans plus some mixed media in future...

Here are some photos of my completed model. I learned a couple of things along the way, so I'm pretty happy with it.
