Steve Broderick ‘s Classic Viper

This is my build of the classic Battlestar Galactica Viper recently released, by Moebius Models, in 1/32 scale and available through this site. I must say that this kit is a huge improvement over the original Revell release, from the late 70’s, and having had the chance to hold an original filming model in my hands, this kit is as close as you can get, in detail, to the real thing. I built this kit as a birthday present for a friend of mine who is a huge fan of all things Galactica, old and new version. I used Model Masters Pale Grey, mixed with white, to get the base color, with some lightly sprayed Light Grey for panels. I also used oil paint washes in Black and Burnt Umber, and mixtures of both together, to give it that worn look. Weathering powders were also used. This was a fun build and a kit I would recommend to any fan of the series.
