If your viper looks this good, the raider should be the cats meow when done!
Keep up the great work.

Thanks Barry!!! And what do you think of the painting idea?:D
And an announcement to all that have wondered about the raider, and when something was going to be let known. We have just recieved the main construction materials to continue this project, and are waiting just for the right moment to launch the new thread on this subject here at the fleets! Keep watching! :salute:

Paint looks great so far.
I think you should paint the viper in the traditional style of the originals.
I am going to paint mine that way with some minor modifications, like painting the nose the same color as the stripes.
The email I sent you will give you an idea of what I am saying.
Got to go now, time to hit the Linux books and fire up the Linux Box.

Later, Barry.

Wow! Looking good. Nice to see it stacked up next to Jesses Viper!

Can't wait to get one! I need to make room in the display case so I can display all 4 Mks (1, 2, 4, 7)!

thanks for the thoughts Barry. And actually, when done, the painted viper will have almost the same tones once I get the panels all done. The way I'm painting it now with the various tones added just gives it more depth to the finished subject. It'll be looking like it belongs next to TOS viper in colors and details. :salute:

We look forward to hearing from you. And can't wait to see your build-up of this viper. :salute:

If the price is right, I'd go for that. Just send the total and I'll let you know.

Got to over to Michael's house today and saw the one he's currently building up for Box Art. This thing looks awesome built up! Thinkin' I might have to break my promise to myself about buying off-scale (for me) models. :thumbsup:

Went out w/Michael afterwards and had a beer and shot the breeze w/him. Even talked to Dilbertman - Good talkin' to ya, dude!

New Painting Pic!!

Here's what I have done thus far for detailing the models various paint tones. Added multiple parts of dark gull grey, light grey, and white. On some panels, specifically the two laser torpedoes on either side of cockpit, a slight tint of chameleon pearlecsent was added to give it a different kind of metallic look. But don't over do it with this, as you only want it to appear reflecting color, not solid. Then I slightly tinted italian red, (all colors by the way are still modelmaster acryl) with a little yellow, then began marking my lines and hand painted (very thinly) the orangish-red stripes. Then have begun slight weathering on panels and engine section of viper. But she's no where NEAR DONE! :D

Again, a remarkable piece of work.

Sweeeeeet!!!!

UPDATE: Progress Pic!!
Okay, alot of you have been hollering..."Cockpit Pics!!!!"
Here it is finally sculpted right. I've tried and failed at numerous attempts and different ways of trying to build it, but being an artist I went with natural instinct and actually sculpted the thing with Aves Epoxy Sculpt! The BEST sculpting compound period, in my opinion.
Whats next with it? Once cured, about another hour from now, I'll be able to remove it from the fuselage, then begin filing, sanding, drilling, dremeling, and adding instrument details and what nots! But here it is, before refinement. :salute:

SORRY ALL!!! :D

Had to spend a couple of days getting regular art commissions finished for customers. Will be posting here tomorrow or later tonight on the progress of this teeny- weeny simple project! :rotf:
But will also be in the process of redesigning my work area here to become a multi-functional area. To work on paintings, models, and sculpts, and multi-task in general. I'd like to be able to say, while a background color is drying and am waiting on it to go back to my sculpt, and keep progressing on all projects. We'll start tonight and see how it goes.
By the way....Where is Peter Noble??? :wtf: Have'nt seen him in this thread for quite a while! Worried about that guy. :D
Let me hear from all of you, as I definately become more ENERGIZED by hearing from you and getting suggestions or questions. :salute:

z28barry January 17th, 2006 06:13 PM

With all those late nights you put in, I thought it would be better if I didn't bug you.
You deserve a few days to yourself, heck everyone does.
Like always, I check the tread to see what's new and exciting and I'm sure you'll be posting more killer images.

later, Barry.

dilbertman January 17th, 2006 08:44 PM
