Colonial Viper Mk I
And now to something completely different: the Colonial Viper Mk I. I haven't built any Sci-Fi models for many, many years, but I have always liked the Viper from the old campy Battlestar Galactica as well the new and gloomy version. The Viper Mk I is the re-vamped and re-issued 1/32-ish Revell kit from the 1970s, and it is obviously the Viper of glitzy and glittering Galactica. Nevertheless, it still looks pleasing to me, and the kit was a fun build. The decals of Apollo's Viper were of excellent quality, and I did provide some weathering to make this particular model look more like the gritty Viper Mk IIs in the new Galactica.
