Viper Mark II for EL Barto
a small xmas gift
About this creation
Hello BSG fans,
I built my first BSG moc. The reason was, that El Barto said, that my SW Starwing-gunboat would look like an Viper Mark II, so I saw an need to built an Mark II.
The reference pic was an offical BSG plastic-model - i tried to copy it ten to ten...






Of course it has retractable landinggear, of course!




For the engines i jused many small bricks instead of big boring wheels.


I also saw an need to make the edges of the wings round.


That's my reference.


You may noticed that the dorsal-engine is more rectangular shaped than the round side ones.


The authentic canopy was the most difficult part.


To sad, that the sliding action only works in real, LDD is to confused by all the pivotpoints of the fragile canopy, i admit.




More technical greebles - the noses underside doesn't look as nice as the round upper shape.






The only feature i don't know if it's authentic, but i added an anchore for the launching-rail wich is an typical system on Battlestars.

Thank you to all who spent time to look at my moc!

Quoting Builder Allan Very, very cool! I like the color scheme and awesome shape. Great detailing too, the cockpit is well done. This should be a set out in the stores :-)
Thanks for the nice comment! Yeh, BSG-stuff has not entered the Lego-Stores, but it is here on Mocpages, like my favorits, El Barto and Gary King proudly presents.

My goodness Stephan I have gone through the entire 841 pages generated sorted out all the elements and have now ordered many more elements from 10 sellers. MMMMM Yes madness and determination to build your Viper. Now there are several elements apart from the trans clear not available or made.... LDD has advantages. Your hard work will hopefully be completed by January's end or February some time I am guessing the post will be slow because of the silly season. All the very best till then. Garry

Quoting Garry King I thank you very much for allowing me to attempt to build this magnificent ship. It is very inspiring and a privilege to put all of your hard work into a physical work of art. I have found many elements are not available on the market place even through lego unless I want a very expensive bill to pay for custom elements. I will compromise in some areas but will do my very best to follow your design. It will certainly test my resolve as I search for each element as I need it. You humble me greatly kind Sir. The canopy trans clear elements are next to impossible to find. Other than that my credit card is having a good work out..... IF YOU CELEBRATE THE SILLY SEASON. I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST AND A HAPPY NEW YEARS CELEBRATION.
Best season wishes, and an happy new year, too. Well, i should have known, that some bricks are not avaiable in real; If the transclear bricks for the canopy existing only digital, well i think a new construction of the struts will do it without an glass, you showed formerly on your fighters, that you can do it well. Any changes i count as improvements, and i hope you will have fun with it; can't wait to see this cooperated project in real.

Quoting Garry King MASTER STEPHAN, this is the FRAKEN best of the best. YEH YEH YEH I am a Bsg crazed nut. That aside I would have to say this would be an incredible real life model to have on the shelf . Forget El-Barto OOOOOHHH did I say that.. ????? MMMMM I would like your permission to attempt to build this sensational creation of yours. INDEED YOU ARE A MASTER of the LDD and so skilled in your abilities. You made feel like a kid in a LEGO shop. I went to see if I had the parts to build this sexy viper and I have most of them. SENSATIONAL and thank you so much for sharing. Soon you will be making my Battlestars using LDD. I can't wait but I have to. WELL DONE
Thanks for the great compliment, Garry! You know, your are also a GREAT MASTER. Yes, you have my permission to built it in real. I hope you will find your way trough the LDD-intructions you can create with the button in the right upper corner; its not always easy, but i have no doubt you will make it, and maybe find some improvements...

Quoting El Barto ! Awesome! Technic-fig scale looks like? Really allows all sorts of interesting angles for an accurate shape. Best I've seen! Thanks for the shout-out, too, Dude!
Nice, that you like it. Technicfigsize, that's right. Previously Merry XMas.

man... you should change your icon... anything which shows you are the LDD-master... wow incredible work also here! the size alone, the details in shaping and coloring... and the canopy is really cool done ;-) as a little tip ( i also should use it...) - use the function groups in LDD! so you could open and close your canopy easier... you can click to a group and tada - all pieces in there are marked ! By the way - how was your study time in munich ? except cold ;-)
