Little side project I have started when for when the Sub and T-34 annoy me..
Mobius Colonial Viper Mk1

Pretty basic kit... had no seat so banged one together out of the spares box..Mix of 2x 1/48 F-14 Bang seats and a 1/32 Me109 seat... will prolly add little bits and pieces to the whole kit as I plod along..

Had a bit of time today so did some more on this wee plaything...painted the cockpit ..just needs a gloss then some dirt/wear..finished the seat..started on the engine assy adding some extra bits and pieces as I please..cut out the moulded grill in the nose cone to add some mesh to it..
Hoping to have an update on the T-34 soon too. Things have been busy as we are hosting various groups of Lions supporters this month!
