For those that did not get this sheet in their instructions, as it was last minute.
This point about the Laser Cannons need to be stressed as to the correct way to mount them. Don't get nasty! :D

Viper 04 October 12th, 2006 08:11 PM

Sweet! Thanks Mike! :thumbsup:

Hoping you do post a finished, painted build-up of one of these long-awaited vipers. :D

BlueSquad2001 October 12th, 2006 10:52 PM

I'm about to paint an engine can. Step by step explaining as I go. Any questions, please ask here so that all can read and understand, as they are quite complex in color. All will be done by brush.

BlueSquad2001 October 13th, 2006 02:34 PM

I'll get to posting some pics later tonight. Just real busy. ;)

Viper 04 October 13th, 2006 10:22 PM

Not so busy that he had to call me while looking for some Count Chocula at the food market! .....which they did NOT have! the communist! :/:

ARGHHHH!!!! I want my Count Chocula!!!

Here are some pics of the engine section and front intakes for the "KUHN Viper!" :D
I have many more to post and some newer, but after I sleep! Yes Kurt...I'm still awake. :wtf:

The 1st pic here is the detailing of the flush vent ribs being installed.

Next is the fitting of the engine cans, and I decided to take it further with the detailing, by actually using several different sizes of Dremel engraving bits and cutting down deep and up under the details to give more realistic depth.
Then the final pic is just the begining of paint detail, much more to do to finish this up, but it is the hardest part to make look believeable.
GOODNIGHT!!! :rotf: :D

Viper 1 October 14th, 2006 07:34 PM

......KUHN Viper....?????????

Are we calling this something else...again? :wtf:

Nice detailing. Again...I can't wait to get my hands on them. :D

No..No...That's Kurt Kuhn, from over at the RPF.
I'm doing a build-up for him and Dilbertman. And who better to do a build-up than the people that blueprinted and created the master? :D

Looking COOL Mike. This and the new classic comic coming out is make me a HAPPY WARRIOR.

Jim :thumbsup: :D

Viper 04 October 14th, 2006 08:25 PM

SWEET!!!!! Looks great! MORE! MORE!!!!!

Hey folks! At our local Sci-Fi/Fantasy contest today Viper took first place !!
(see other threads for pics ) :bounce:

dilbertman October 14th, 2006 08:44 PM

Hopefully the Viper will look this good when Mike's done. I think someone has a little to much time on there hands.

Jim :eek:

dilbertman October 15th, 2006 06:10 PM

Hey everyone, just got off the phone with Mike. He wanted you all to know that he got up very late today (4pm) and is work on going more pic's posted. Hopefully we will see some tonight, if not maybe tomorrow. Just remember, greatest can't be rushed.

Jim :rolleyes:

z28barry October 16th, 2006 03:52 PM

Come onnnnn.

Viper 04 October 16th, 2006 07:57 PM

Got mine today!! COOL KIT Mike!! Thanks! :thumbsup:

Man this sucka is BIG! :wtf:

Thanks to all that were involved in bringing this kit to life like Tom, Coby and to Terri for all her help, understanding, wuv and all that other stuff and a big thanks for Mike for hanging in there and not just calling the whole thing off when things got deep.

Too bad I can not just start on this right now but I have too much money and effort wrapped up in my 1/35 scale FLYING SUB.

Rock on!!!! :salute:

z28barry October 17th, 2006 08:07 AM

Hey mike.

Would it be possible to have a sent list and a waiting list.
Everyone is excited and can't wait to know.
I am also interested in seeing where I fit in on the list.

Thanks, Barry.

Waiting.......Waiting........ (drumming fingers on table.....)
Well....while I wait for my DeSanto Mk 2 Vipers....
Here is some pics of my Yellow Squadron Recon Viper that I just rebuilt last week to compete in my local IPMS contest. (It didn't win anything ... those guys are more into tanks and planes then SciFi stuff.)
But I did get it done.
I finally did a cockpit for it...did a Male pilot and Female co-pilot/spotter.... and cut off the old burner cans and used my Burner Can Set.
Here it is for your enjoyment while we wait.
