About this creation
== STEPHAN LAUNCH THIS VIPER ==








After all of the teasing you with the launch tube and the turbo canons.






HERE IT IS.






Stephan’s JOLLY HUGE LDD built from the solid LEGO elements.









This is definitely the best of the best in all of the ‘ VIPERS ’ that anyone including myself have built.. DISCLAIMER TIME >>> That I have seen on MOCPages and Brickshelf and three other sites I have looked at.








This was one amazing build and have to say I spent all of my silly season’s money gifts of purchasing elements for this beauty and more for other future builds.






















The LDD was brilliant to look at and a tricky one to generate a building guide as it did mix up so many sections and it took a long time to count each individual elements and then put together a listing of element colours ,size and an image of the elements.. many, many, many hours spent doing a spread sheet design to enable me to paste each element design and colour on then make it readable and hold 12 columns of 15 boxes BLA BLA BLA BLA and so on ….HA HA Now I know that I could have generated a list from the program its self. “ SO TYPICAL “. There is an easy way of doing things after I have done it the hard way..
If you are thinking of building this beauty please remember that not all the elements are available on the market or they may be so expensive to warrant (ME) purchasing. So crafty thinking and being adaptable you can build this viper and once doing so perhaps modify it and create another.
I feel that Stephan has set a new bench mark on size and beauty. Makes me feel inadequate now.. OH WELL !!!!! It is a platform and a new level of achievement.
This viper while building it had some gravity issues, since LDD had no gravity to deal with I had to reinforce the front nose section by adding solid fixed hinge plates to stop the downward force pulling off the front. And just while I was at it I did the same for the lower front .
This was after the ship was fully built and waiting for the proper elements to arrive…
Since its completion it has been knocked about, wings bumped off, laid upon by my dog, rebuilt many times but apart from all that the body took the punishment even better that all my other builds “ So it is a good solid build”.








































One for the purists.. It is not perfect .. However it is one super fine looking Viper that Stephan created and shares to all who wish to create it. If you can do better please do so. This is a great starting point for the Macro Builders such as myself. This build is an inspirational starting point for the Viper construction
































In May last year I began building a macro MVII Colonial Viper and only got to the rear engine design. I worked out it would be nearly 1100mm in length So yes a biggy. Then I began on my Tribute to Ralph Mcquarrie … The engines still are on the shelf as are many other design thoughts I have had for other future creations.. in all there are sections and designs for 11 ships waiting to be constructed and not enough time in the evening just yet….















































































































































































A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO STEPHAN FOR HIS PERMISSION TO BUILD HIS LDD VIPER and in advance to all viewers.
Below is where you can see the LDD from Stephan Schumann

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING …. No construction images.

Quoting Stuart Lucas And here it is! Congratulations to you and Stephan, that is truly a peerless Viper!
Thank you Stuart for commenting on this build. Stephan did all the mind bendingly hard work in designing. I followed his design and made a few minor changes.

Quoting Adam Tg Hats off to you both. The detail and thought that went into both designs is fanatic. I encourage you to follow up on the larger scale viper, this would certainly be listed as one of the great builds (like Sylvains monster in the works). One question; Has Lego actually released any BSG sets? I honestly cannot fathom why not as it has such a huge MOC following. Admittedly not as Star Wars sized, that's another debate for another time, but has Lego even looked at Mocpages? Keep on MOCing. Adam Tg
Thank you Adam for your generous praise and continuing support. Sadly there are no BSG Lego on the market and may never will be. The costs for Lego would be astounding and the market may also not warranting the production of such creating. Thanks for asking and I hope this helps.

Quoting Mark Kelso What a treat to see a Viper MOC done in such a large format. I've often wondered if someone out there had attempted something bigger than minifig scale, and this doesn't disappoint. There are still some subtle forms that bother me about Stephan's design. I probably couldn't do any better, though, as this is SUCH a challenging ship with it's tapering, cone-shaped elements (Lego's worst nightmare!), and my hat's off to both of you for tackling it. As for the launch tube, nothing but sheer perfection, Gary. Really - just gorgeous! Great job, as always, with the presentation, too! Thanks so much for making my day with this bad boy!
Thank you Mark. It is always a pleasure getting supportave comments from you. Stephan has set a great platform on this large viper. From this base it can be built upon and made larger and more accurate to the movie models that is why I liked it so much. It also gave me a better way of building in this scale. Anyone can do better NOW but as we all need is a starting point. Stephan generously gave the world this starting point. Cheers and hope to see your finished creation soon.

Quoting Charles Risner I've posted before on your creations but never received a reply. I love you BGS creations, and would be interested in purchasing completed projects of yours. Are you willing to part with these beauties? If you'd prefer to create a separate model for each one (so you can keep yours), I am more than happy to pay for the costs of supplies and labor and shipping. If interested, please let me know; I can be reached at Thank you. Charles Risner
Thank you Charles for such a honor. I will be in contact soon.

Garry, you have absolutely given life to it and mixed in with your amazing launch tube and FX. A superb collab guys, I am utterly impressed.

Quoting El Barto ! Too awesome!! Great Viper, and amazing setting for it. I'd have to agree with your assessment that it's the best design out there. I've looked at a lot of Vipers, too, and this is certainly the closest to the reimagined series I've seen. Good to see that launch tube in action, Chief!!
Thank you dude Barto El definitely a fun and expensive build well worth it. So far no one has asked it I have flown it around the room..... Absolutely have done so. what a ball I had doing so. Cheers

Quoting Stephan Schumann Fantastic Pics of the Viper! I am impressed, that it is nearly built ten to ten, of my LDD-Viper. The Engines looks real respectful in real. For your hard work to count the bricks, I must say, that I also use the instructions to see what bricks are needed - because the html-file has often errors, and not all bricks are actual listed - and I get easier introduced to the building-part itself. The gravitation-matter is really hard to imagine on LDD, I am glad you found a good solution. I also want to say Thank You, for your judgement about our Viper. Always nice to share!
Fantastic that you approve of it. Some parts were left off as they kept dropping off whenever I moved it around. You definitely created a masterpiece and a new standard of building. Heres hoping you can design even more brilliant BSG LDD. Thank you for sharing and allowing me to have the privileged to build your Viper.

Quoting Paul Yperman I cannot do better and I won't try because this look as perfect as it gets... LDD top right button: create building instruction...create Pdf file and at the end you'll find the partlist...haha sounds familiar, more ideas than time or money. I've got the parts for Stephan's Viper and the other ships created by Stephan...Still trying to find the time to build them. I think you have both a great talent and combined it's magic.
Thank you Paul and I am sure Stephan and I look forward seeing his LDD built from solid Lego. Keep up the great creations.
