This is a Revell reboxing of the Moebius Mk.VII Viper.

This is my first large (large than 1/72) scale build and my first attempt at darkening a canopy. You can still see Apollo is in there but I may have used one coat too many of Tamiya Smoke X-19! :hithead:

I also attempted some rudimentary streaking aft of the cannon but the result is a bit hit and miss. The panel lines were highlighted with a touch of gunmetal.

Very cool :thumb: I have a half built Mk II Viper on the shelf of doom and the Mk VII in the stash. What colour did you use for it?

Hi Chris,

I originally went with Hu144 but that seemed far too blue so the final colour is Tamiya XF-25 Light Sea Grey.
