The Bayou Bat… A Vic Viper
Al Gator takes off in his vic viper for planetary merchant vessel plundering!
About this creation
His band of lusty pirates delights in the booty gained from the plunder of unsuspecting merchant vessels traveling near the pale blue moons of the pirates’ Planet Bayou. Three vipers at a time are employed to run ‘shotgun’ escorting the main pirate booty cargo and docking vessel, the Gator Galaxy.

Okay… this was my try at building a Vic Viper. It’s the first ever space ship I built from my very own design! It all started from my wanting to use those 2 yellow life rafts!

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Now that's a Vic Viper! Pretty cool idea to use the rubber boats on your build! Nice editing as well. Btw, GIMP worked fine on my computer, both, on Windows Vista and Windows 7! ~Cheers
Thanks for the info on the editig software! Oh, and now you can see why I liked the colors you used on your recent build! :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Love the colours and crazy design, I would expect nothing less from you Topsy. Oh, it looks like you might have some competition in the female form building http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/347758. Don’t worry you will always be my first love ;)
Thanks for stopping by! This was a new buiding/editing adventure for me! Oh, I see no competition, that builder's work will attract a very different sort of viewing customer! Hey I'm a female... what would you expect me to say?! :)

I've got Windows XP, and haven't had any issues, other than massive files grinding my computer to a halt. Obviously your program is top-notch!

Quoting El Barto ! Now that is one HOT viper!! Some great effects, too! Looks like you've been honing your skills in the 'shop'. Awesome!
Actually, Cyberlink's PowerDirector. I was thinking about downloading GIMP, but I read it may have issues with Microsoft operating systems? And you have to download an extra installer? Are you familiar with this and does the installer have any quirks itself??? Anyhoo, thanks! :)

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J Now that's what I call a Vic VipAAARRRRR! Hehehe. Ingenious concept and nifty parts usage!
Arr, arr, arr... viparr! Jeeez, I must have been really slow on the uptake not to catch that one myself! Thanks for stopping by!

Quoting Tim C Cool build, Topsy. Excellent use of the rafts. I have a dk bley one that I have been trying to incorporate into a build, but can't seem to find the appropriate place. You seem to have solved that problem. I like the fact that it is flown by a gator, (nice touch), and the skeleton at the nose is brilliantly humorous. Well done.
Thanks, Tim! Well, I'm old enough to recall old sci-fi films and I seem to remember one where the aliens were reptilian in nature? So... I thought a gator was fitting! :)

Quoting Nils O. Could you please add this Vic Viper to our Group "Vic Viper Owners Club"? I'll send you an invitation. Thanks in advance! :-)) Edit: Oops, I just saw that you are arleady a member of the group :-))
I joined the group after seeing some and building mine. I wanted to be aware of when new builds were posted. Then I realized there were specific specs, and after reading the specs, I was not sure mine really met them Thanks! :)

Quoting Nils O. Wow, that's cool, a pirate Vic Viper! The shaping is awesome and the parts usage is very clever, especially the Zodiacs! Great job! :-))
Thanks, especially about the shape! :)

Quoting Nick Barrett This Novvember thing is getting out of hand - in a good way. There's been loads of interesting and unique takes on the viper theme this year, and this is one of the most spectacular. I love it!
Well, my whole family is a bit ‘spacey’! My hubby has a degree is Astronautical Engineering and worked on various space related projects. My oldest daughter is a closet astronomer and has a telescope even though she is studying chemical engineering! My youngest writes space sci-fi stories even though she is studying linguistics! I collect ceramic and glass sun and moon plaques and my degree in chemistry finds me diggin’ the whole dark matter thing. Soooo, it was time to build a space craft!

Thanks... though... as I responded to Michael, I am thinking now that the build may be a bit too cluttered? :)

Quoting Michael Kringe Awesome! I love this MOC, because it shows the many possibilities you have by using LEGO bricks! I can recognize Space Police, City, Star Wars and many more themes. I especially like the wings from the old ewok attack!
Thanks Michael. Using the rafts in a new way spurred me on to use other pieces too. But one has to be very careful not to overdo it or the build becomes cluttered. In all honesty, I think I may have overstepped the clutter limit a wee bit? :)

Quoting Parrington Levens Oh now that is some original parts usage! Hehe, and what a whacky horror show VViper. And some nifty FX also ST, really always something out of left field your work. Darn original, thanx for sharing :)
I originally posted pix with no FX, but they just looked a bit lost. One just can't 'do' anything space without some FX... I'm learning gradually. :)

Quoting David Roberts Erm, this is very, very impressively, creatively STRANGE! Windsurfers on the wings, rubber boats too and a Fabuland crocodile pilot: brilliant. This VV is so much fun. I love the stove top photo, with the hob looking like space, stars & planets. This is great work :-)
Thanks for the stovetop comment! I just altered it a bit, to make it look even more spacey! I'm really going to have to look into photoediting! :)
