Revell/Moebius mk1 Colonial Viper

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 Hi and welcome to my first build thread.

I have wanted to build a Viper for some time I have the Revell and Moebius kits but will build one from the best bits of both. The nose of the revell is about the right length the rear of the moebius is more stocky so they will be grafted together, the revell has no cockpit and a solid canopy so the moebius pit and clear canopy will be used

The difference between the moebius (left) and revell noses.

The panel lines will need scribing into the revell nose to match the rear fuselage.

The cockpit all painted up

The pilot glued up I adjusted the head he was looking up a bit to much.

Starting work on the front fuselage trying to get it to marry up.

That's progress so far I'm painting various bits up ready to get it put together if it all fits ok.

A little more work done and it's starting to look like a Viper I have some pictures of studio models I'm using as reference but even they vary a little so I'm putting on what I like the look of.

Great start. I bought the Mobeus kit of the viper and the cylon raider a few months ago. Looking forward to watching this come together. Are you planning on fitting lights? Seems to be a thing with these kits.

John. 😀

No I'm not a fan of fitting lights on kits it does seem to be though.
