Well that's just awesome, and I use that word sparingly. One question, does it launch down the tube exactly the same every time? Man they loved to recycle that footage, and also the stock shots from the viper/ raider dogfights. Must have used all the special effects budget up on the dagget!
While this model was on the mocpages main page I just had to click on it and look, every time, day after day. I happened to see some other vipers on Brickshelf today that I had not seen before, but to me, this is still the best one I have seen so far. Simply fantastic.
I still remember watching BSG back in the 80's. Your Viper is spot on! I'd love to see your version of the Cyclon Raider next. To top it off you could do a diorama of the two in a good old fashioned dog-fight to the death!
Right on! I had one of the Vipers, with the little red darts that shot out of the nose, when I was a kid. This looks more fun!
Say, are those X-Wing parts? Talk about coming full circle: did you know that some of the same people that worked on the BSG models in the '70s series also worked on the models in Star Wars Episode IV? There are even a few of the same capital ship models used, or so I've been told. I've always noted the similarities between the Viper and X-Wing; though I'm not sure if the same person designed both, it wouldn't surprise me. Your use of parts for one to make the other, trivial as it may be to some, is still novel and notable to me.
Again, excellent work! LEGO Battlestar Galactica, anyone?
Like wow, man. As some people have already stated, I am also hard-pressed to admit that this is even LEGO! I mean, I know that it is but only after looking at the picture for a while. This, 2x4, is easily your best LEGO MOC to date, hands down! The greebling is dead-on; it looks just like an actual Viper from the old Battlestar Galactica (though I also like the newer one and its prequel named Caprica, too), and the detailing is just major awesome, too! This might be out of curiosity but just exactly how many LEGO pieces ARE there in this MOC, anyway? Thank you for your time, patience, and response.
I´m totally speechless! I´ve got one of these as a non LEGO model and yous seems like a perfect copy of that. The smoothness and the nice conic nose turn that Viper into a real goddess! Great work, man!
Wie immer baust du alles ohne

PS: Machst du zu der Kreation "Dragon hunter" auch einmal eine Bauanleitung? Ich meine nicht von der Stage, sondern von dem steilen schwarzen Jäger.
