Viper Mk VII
Posted by JBRaider on Monday, April 5, 2021 5:50 PM

Picked this kit up on squadron models last day and built it up over the weekend. This was the 1/72 offering that comes with two vipers.

The kit was a quick build with less than 20 parts and the fit was good with no filler required. My biggest complaint was the pilot was so small it needed a booster seat to see out. The overall color may be a little dark but I am happy with it

Very nice build, how big is it? I prefer their (reboot) earlier Vipers that look more like the 1978 Viper with the red/white motif.

Agreed, but it's hard to top that 70s style of scifi modelling.

 

That being said nice build! Well done

Cheers,

Josh

Thanks Josh, I prefer the classic design as well

Yes, nothing beats the original Viper. It's good that they issued these in a standard scale, much like Bandai and Fine Molds did with their Star Wars kits.
