Colonial Viper was created by Nosferatu
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!

Love it. What did you use for the exhausts and the sections just behind the intakes?
