Novvember Vic Viper Transformer V1
Since it is novvember I thought I'd do a Vic Viper in my 25th Century Mech theme.
About this creation
apologies, but the uploader rearranged the pictures in alphabetical order and it mixed up the order I wanted to show the transformation in. I'm working my way through to put them right, but it's difficult. Correction, I think I have them in the right order now. I'll add some quick notes do describe the process below...





















TRANSFORMATION

STEPS:

1. Turn wings into legs by bending at the knee.
2. flip legs backwards, reposition engines
3. bend waist forward and position legs for balance.
4. flip down cockpit to reveal head
5. turn front sections into arms by rotating side nacelles 180 and folding up hinge.
6. bend arm sections at shoulder and bend at elbow
7. reposition nacelle sections to form weapon/shoulder decoration
























NOTES:

WHAT WENT RIGHT? - I kind of like the colour scheme, though I originally wanted more white (but since the new uploader gives all designs a white background detail was difficult to make out. The shape of the vehicle form does say Vic Viper, to me anyway. Articulation (while limited) matches up to previous 25th Century Mech converting fighters like Rogue.

WHAT WENT WRONG? - Well nothing as such, but I actually think the finished robot is too short. The legs are too bulky and the arms... they aren't what I wanted. My original plan was for the front section to form wings for the robot form and all the limbs to be at the rear, but on this scale that was just too difficult with this joint system. There are also no visible weapons.

WHAT WOULD I ADD/CHANGE? - Obviously I would like to create something in a more eye catching colour combo. Plus I've issues with both modes for different reasons. The robot mode needs to look more robotic and the vehicle form needs a better rear section. Considering the whole thing took me under 30 minutes to build it isn't bad, but I think a design which took more than an hour to develop would probably tick more boxes.

Quoting David Roberts Great work! The VV looks good and the transformation is brilliant. It's impressive how you've got this into such a small package.
Thanks David, I'm looking to update this for 2013, but I've not left myself a lot of time.

Quoting Nils O. Wow, that's so cool, a Vic Viper Transformer! The shape is great and the design is very clever, especially for the small scale of this model. Great job! :-))
Thank you. I wanted to do something for NoVVember, but didn't just want to copy what was already out there. There didn't seem to be many TF-VV when I googled earlier.
