1/72 Moebius Models Colonial Viper Mark II

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Apr 1 2020



Here is my Colonial Viper Mark II from the TV Series "Battlestar Galactica" (2004-2009) with my own created paint scheme. The kit from Moebius Models includes two models, I shared it with a good friend of mine.

The quality of the kit is excellent, the parts fit well and the detailing on the surfaces - also inside the cockpit - is very precise. There exist two parts for the bottom for the options with or without landing gear. So when you build the model airborne, as I did, it´s not necessary to close the landing gear bays and you have perfect panel lines there. 

To make my Viper looking more dangerous I added two UB-16 rocket launchers I had left from a L-39 Albatros in 1/48. 

The model was painted with brush. Some decals came from other kits, but the most markings come out the Moebius kit, which are also in a very good quality. 

The Viper is sealed with flat, clear varnish. 

Enjoy the pictures!
