Default Mk 2 Viper

Having sat in the cupboard for nearly two years I have finally gotten around to starting my Black Sun models Mk 2 Viper. Has anybody else built one? I think I am going to use a little artistic licence. I don't like the white finish and i think i am going to give it a more grey weathered finish like the originals. (Which in think look better in any case!!!!)

Baggers,
Never built one but going with the darker style sounds like it would look great! Although I have to admit, I, also prefer the original BSG vipers, colours

I thought the white made them look plasticcy (is that a word) and less like a fighting machine. Well its glued together and undercoated in black ready for the first coat og grey to be drybrushed on!

I've just recently heard of the "black base, gray drybrush" technique! I use the reverse, base colour and then drybrush black. Please, as time permits, some photos Thanks!

I always used a light basecoat in the oast. I started using a black undercoat to paint Games workshop figures and I find it works well. Will give the photos a whirl though i've never posted any so not sure how you di it!

Wow, very nice collection there!

If I may make a suggestion, if you click the fourth link below each picture (the one called 'img' you can paste it in your posting, and voila!

Ooof, may need to resize that a bit. The other advantage of posting just the link is you don't let others into your album.

When you upload, may I suggest you select the size under image options of: message board 649 X 480

Addendum.... I went back and resized the image in my posting so that it wouldn't throw the thread so seriously out of kilter.

Dang, you are really movin Looks great, I like the effect the "gray brush" gives it! I wouldn't have guessed originally it was base black

Thats the good thing about dry brushing as a technique it suits the impatient! (Me). means that you can get alonjg quickly because of the thin layers. And citadel paints drys really quickly too. You can take time on the nice finishing touches then!

there is nothing much locally. Us down under guys have to typically import kits ourselves. Hobbylink, Starship Modeller are good sources. I'm waiting on this kit:

Yes, bit sad about our dollar really, but at least we aren't in the situation the US is in. aus eagle if you have decent model shops near you they may be able to hunt stuff down, but otherwise as Liberator has said there's little in AU that sells our sort of models.

My Viper arrived today! Feels like Xmas. Man this is a peice of art! The moulding, the detail, awesome - so looking forward to this. Breathe slowly, deeply, calm down - I need this distraction. But must fix my retro ship first - modelling - a panacea for my thoughts.
