Very nice looking Viper Rexxxx! Like the details like the green HUD and clean build so far. Keep us updated. :thumb:

Thanks, Scorpion! It's definitely moving right along now, and it's a good thing, too. Turns out our Commander is chaning command a little earlier than I expected, so now I'm rushing to finish a second one. Got to be done in less than 2 weeks now! At least I've already learned a lot of the mistakes to avoid!

Here are a couple of update pictures. Nearing completion now!

So, y'all are doing a 1/48 instead? Sorry we couldn't swing 1/32 man.....I have a Tamiya viper that's begging for a set of hounds markings.

Hope Col Bell appreciates the 8,654 e-mails that went into that sheet, LOL! I have to say, that was among the most enjoyable projects I've ever been involved with. Now, getting the dadgummed wing jet out is the next feat!

I'll make a separate thread. Can't wait to see your build done!

Actually, the Ops side of the house is doing a 1/48. Not sure if the maintenance guys are still planning on the 1/32 or not. I'll have to ask.

I'll make sure I let him know about all the work that's gone into that sheet! I'm sure he'll appreciate all the work (although I'd be willing to bet it was closer to 8524 e-mails). :wink: Somehow that just sounds better. Anyway, looking forward to seeing your thread as well!

Well, I managed to finish 776! I actually was able to get the 90% solution by the going-away dinner Thursday night, and was able to at least present it. There were only a couple of cosmetic details to wrap up, and I finished that tonight. I'm posting pictures of that jet in the "Finished Models Showroom". Hopefully I'll finish mine up shortly as well.

WoW..the detail throws me back, a very well done...amazing looking model you got there.

You have lots of time on your hands I think but that is not a bad thing, I can see and read it has taken you lots of time.

It looks great, cockpit, well wheels, exhaust nozzles...all amazing - Salute

Heh, don't we wish we had more time! You'll find that moost ardent modelers don't have a lot of time, it's just that we do a lot with the time we do have. ;)

Unfortunately, I seem to be doing a lot of other stuff with the time that I do have, hence the SLOW build! :roll:

Compare this to my nearly-identical build of 90-0776, which took only 3 weeks (granted, I was scrambling to get it done in the last couple of days!).

Just goes to show, if you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute.

Nice work done, I must say that this is one of the best models. I do find it quite interesting though that these pieces show up. That is closer to the real thing than any of the other models .
