Vic Viper: "Nnenn's Comet"
A NoVVember Vic Viper. A tribute to one of the world's most creative Lego builders.
About this creation
Hey, it's NoVVember and that is Vic Viper month and in tribute to Nnenn, may he rest in peace, this is my first vic viper. Also this is my first studless and SNOT build. As part of my tribute i used Nnenn's box cockpit design. Thought it fitting to use one of his techniques in a tribute to his genius. If you dont know about Nnenn or NoVVember, please visit his flickr page here --> Nnenn He encouraged everyone to build one in... yep, November. So here is mine... Enjoy.

This pic is what makes a Vic Viper, a Vic Viper. (photo is from Nnenn's Flickr page) in hopes anyone who doesnt know what these are can now join in the fun!!


























I hope you enjoyed this tribute to a true master of the bricks.
Thanks to Nnenn, Lego and You for looking. Please feel free to rate, comment, or both.
~ Cheers

How do you actually build the front prongs, rear wings, and tail fin?

Awesome! Cool colors and great work on the body shape. Those engines look very nice too, all in all a really nice build :-) Thanks for your comments on my stuff!

Quoting Brody Allen This is a good SNOT build. I really love the colors and the matching figure. Also, the engine design is well done. Just a few suggestions though. I feel that the wings are too horizontal and it feels like everything is sitting on a plate. If you could angle wings down a few degrees it would make a big difference. Also, like I really like the engine design however I feel they are two far forward and by sitting on the flat wings they just seem to bulky and out of place. If you could move them back a bit it would also help with the overall look. These would be minor adjustments that I think would make a great improvement. Just my opinion nothing to take away from nice vic viper.
Thanks, this was the first time I did a SNOT build vs. Adding SNOT to a build. I totally see what you mean about it "sitting on a plate", I will rememberthat. Everything gets broken down right now due to my building space and bedroom are the same thing lol. Thanks for your thoughts, I appreciate all feedback.

That's really cool. The two prongs are lovely. The colors are really nice, too. I was actually thinking of making a MOC with wings made of bricks, not a Vic Viper, but a ship with bricked wings just as an experiment.

Very Very nice! Nnenn would be proud. I'm planning on building a VV myself! But mine will be from a series, only in VV form.

That helps, thanks! Maybe now I'll try my hand at one...

Quoting Matt Hanson Could some one please explain the VV phenomenon to me? I get what they are but why are we all to build them in many various ways? There is no malice here, I'm really just wondering. I've seen a thousand of these and you, Sir, happen to get my question (or whomever wants to answer)
Thanks. I think Nnenn liked Gradius and the ship you fly enough to make one. Then took his creative genius and decided that these had certain basic design points and from there let your imagination do the rest. It was his "fad" that caught on like wildfire. Then after he passed away, even though so many people already liked the idea, it became a kind of an ongoing tribute to his amazing building skill and creativeness. Plus they are just a blast to make. I assume that Nov was the chosen month because of the "V" and so it was deemed NoVVember, a month dedicated to Vic Vipers. More proof that Lego has endless possibilities when used by creative and imaginative people. This is what I believe and if you check his work on Flickr, you may be inspired as I was. Hope this long winded explanation helped lol :-) ~cheers

Great job on your first SNOT. Looks like you've used some techniques well. Could some one please explain the VV phenomenon to me?

I've seen a thousand of these and you, Sir, happen to get my question (or whomever wants to answer). Thanks and good work.

Hmmmm, Very Nice VV, I Don't See Any Major Issues, Except One. The only issue I am able to see is the Rear Dorsal Fin, it sticks out way too much, ruins the flow of the unit, and the shape of the Fin is rather unfitting with the rest of the design, it's too stubby. So, maybe lower the fin, and making it slightly longer. Other than that, again, I see no major issue, and is a very nice MOC, well done.

Hmmmm, I see where you going with this, I still retain my position on the placement of the fin. As for the modification, the length is right, however, after some though I feel that its curves don't fit with the rest of the MOC. For the most part the MOC has edges, and when I imagine the fin being lowered and being more polygonal, it feels right. But keep in mind, its your MOC, it matter very little how I fee about the MOC, compared to how you feel about it, keep that in mind.

My idea was to match the curves in the forward prongs. I do see what you mean though, if the tail was coming out of the back, like between the boosters at an upward angle and was sharper like tips of the wings. Hmm that is food for thought. Thanks for your advice.

I really like the engines. The wings look a bit too long to me. But that's just me. The color sheme is also good and I liek the blue line in the wings and forward sprongs

The build is super clean and the color scheme is top notch! Love those engines!!! I like how you used the big jet engines and built around them. They add some internal detail to the engines. SNOT everywhere to boot! He would be proud. Excellent work my friend!
