Second Vic Viper / research vessel channeling some Neo-Classic Space vibes.
About this creation
My second Vic Viper build. Went for more of an experimental build as my first was more "traditional" VV form.
To that end, it's asymmetric, the front prongs are a bit all over the place and the rear fin is off to the side. Old light gray, plus some trans colors, and the idea that it was primarily a research vessel with low weaponry gave me some Classic Space vibes so that's why I said NCS "esque." First time breaking out my fleshies too.
The rainbow on the right was intended to be "visible light collectors," the clear bits to the left "non-visble light collectors" (aka x-ray, gamma, infrared, etc) and heck, a "RGB analyzer" to the upper left.
The cockpit... I was determined to use that two-seater piece but building around it was a nightmare. The following pics give axons around, the standard VV angle shot, and a few details on how I did that cockpit.
Honestly, I have to give credit to pasukaru76's Rainbow Ripper for the initial nugget of inspiration; I really wanted to do a rainbow in a spacecraft somewhere, so I built the right prong first and it all lead from there.
