Moebius Battlestar Galactica Superdeformed Viper MkII
Yep, it's silly.
That Will Do Just Nicely!
Heyho one and all!
The subject matter is a little different from the usual but why not I say.
Got this one as a little slot in and a bit of light relief from the
serious hardware gigs that I usually deal with and it's a welcome change I can tell you.
Now this one is for the same fella who one is building the 44" Eagle for
and he reckoned it could be just a fun build.
Spot on with that thought so away we go.
The somewhat colourful box...
The bits within...
The paperwork bits.
The possibly required reading destruction sheet,
A set of peel off stickers,
An artwork sticker
and a sheet of waterslide decals.
Text and layout somewhat reminiscent of the old Revell "Deals Wheels" caricature kits of the way back when.
It's a snap together but the glue and filler got a look in where required.
The fuselage part assembled...
All 4" inches of it...
And in anticipation of a few ideas popping in to the brain head thing,
the solid canopy got made not so solid.
Now I did ask before this all started if lighting and weathering was wanted.
I was actually joking but the man said yes please and the more I thought about it,
the more it seemed like a great idea.
So back end fitted with three white and three blue 3mm LEDs.
The blue ones will be hooked up to a flicker circuit.
Along with that a bit of polygon punching and clear printing later got three
thrust cones for the engines.
So good enough for a start, a spray of clear blue and a quick look see.
Some adjustments to be done but it's a start.
Now I cleared out the canopy because at least a pilot head seemed a reasonably stupid thing to do.
So it was done.
A George Jetson mesh from Thingiverse got and head printed.
Nose shortened just a bit and Aves helmet added.
Totally goofy and ridiculous...
And of course, a lick or three of paint.
And that's the lot for the opener on this giggle thing!
More later so you goodly gang go easy out there now.
