Folk do sometimes give me the fisheye but I often get  a smile and a nod from the housekeeping staff when I go outside to spray. Sometimes I leave brushes , tweezers, etc. out on the table. They seem to be very careful to clean around my stuff.  I think they appreciate that I am doing artwork. I need to leve them a tip :-*

So it is my only day off ... progress ;)
Glosscote and decals 8) 8)






Obviously I have to weather the decals to match the stripes and do the rest of the weathering to match >:D

Bubba-san, that's freakin' looking good!
You really added tons of pretty with the detailing and the salt trick is spot-on.
Congrats, Ron.

Love it with every last bell & whistle on!

Outstanding, amigo! What you think of as "quick builds" always look like prizewinners in my book!

Looks great, Ron - especially the cockpit/pilot. You should rephotograph it on your truck's diamond plate - without the motel in the background -  It looks very BSG.

Great stuff. I'm not normally that taken with science fiction models but this is simply excellent. Or outstanding. Or both!

Now that's done like a true master craftsman! Man the Vipers they used on the TV show didn't even look this good!

Now that looks so cool on the diamond plate. I can juts imagine a Viper pilot making a model of his ride (like Adama making a sailing ship model)

Looks good as or better than models made for movies.  With the great detail and weathering you kept it looking believably consistent as a used Viper from all angles.  Well done  :)
