But for all to know. The Viper is complete! I'm still waiting for my last silicone shipment to arrive, and it is Mon. I'm still hoping to ship by the weeks end. Will keep you all posted on that. The pilot just needs arms and he is done. :salute:

Here the one bit of detail that all you modelers have to know. On these small flush vents, on the intake housing, you'll need to cut small triangular strips of styrene 3 in each to detail these areas. They just would not come out right in the casting process. So, it's better to just add them on, it looks much better this way.
Heres a pic of that detail. They will be sanded flush at the ends to smooth out things.

I'll use these pics for the AllGalactica article. I'll also whip one up on the centurion and raider.

I still need text -- or I can come up with a draft and have you flush it out.

Sandy, here's the deal. I did'nt exactly feel the time was right to begin to answer all the questions and detail out the progress and history of this fighter, because I was still going through so much with Tom and all and getting things in stone.
But, I'm prepared tonight to begin the writing of the why's and what's and how's of this viper model and have something to you by tomorrow. I'll have to split up the building pics as there are many. And most have never been seen on the Fleets or anywhere else. Tons of pics. Give me an idea of what you want the story on this to be like and shoot me an e-mail, I'll take care of it from there.

Mike,

Sounds good. I won't be able to touch anything until Sat or next week.

I'll give you a call sometime later in the week. When's a good time?

Hi ya Mike, that Viper is looking awesome. I am getting itchy fingers! I can't wait to see it up close. Does it still look like shipping at the end of the week? That would be cool!! I'm kinda hoping to be the only one down under to have one! I dare say though a few others down here will want one. Will you be keeping the production lines open for a while, or will you just do the one run? Same for the Desanto raider, I would love one, but have recently made a few huge purchases, (27 inch Valdore, 30 inch new Cylon Basestar etc) What other kits do you plan on draining my wallet with??!! Damn the exchange rate!! Cheers, Chris

BlueSquad2001 March 16th, 2006 02:29 PM

Just to let you all know. The silicone still has not arrived. We are just held up by that. :salute:

BlueSquad2001 March 17th, 2006 10:25 PM

WE GOT THE SILICONE!!!!
That means, yes we are again late, but will be able to ship mid-week! :D
Check your e-mail Dilbertman!!! :wtf:

Am about to keep this thread going with the build-up details that I'm doing for Dilbertman, Tom Desanto, and Kurts Viper. These will feature lit cockpits and engines. Will begin posting on this as soon as we start shipping. :salute:

TwoBrainedCylon March 23rd, 2006 02:59 PM
