I have now added this Battlestar Galactica Mk VI Viper to the Mk II Viper. Unfortunately I overdid the smoked canopy so its extremely dark. The pilot is in there if you look hard enough. The fit of the fuselage was a little tricky as either the top or the bottom was warped and getting a good fit entailed gluing and clamping in sections down the body.

Moebius Viper VII - some slight fit issues as previously mentioned. Looks similar to an F-16 on certain angles. Easy build and a real canvas for whatever scheme you like. Finished in Galatica 'Apollo' scheme. A few drops of Metallic blue into Luftwaffe blue gives a very interesting result when looked at. In light conditions it looks a bluish colour and when darker, gray - one of those perfect colour mixes you 'find' by accident that you couldn't make better if you deliberately tried. Tamiya weather master also applied and smoked canopy.
