Default 1/32 Tammy Viper

I’m back on the bench fellas. This past spring/summer has been a challenge. Moving into a new home, on the road, training, finally finished my Masters program, and now more training in learning two new airplanes at one time. So I finally decided to get back on the bench.

I’ve had this Viper a few years now & have been motivated by Pigs Viper book to work on mine. 95% or more will be out the box and the plan is for a Hill Block 40. Aftermarket will include:

Afterburner Decals Hill AFB “Blackwidows”
Master Model static dischargers
Master Model pitot & AoA probes
Cross Delta “scab plates
Wheelliant weighted tires & wheel assemblies

I was wanting to weather something so bad for whatever reason so I weathered the keel beam. Also I'm currently trying to tackle the intakes...

Great kit, l have one since the came out & loads of aftermarket too. Just sitting in the stash with everything else! My intake process is to assemble with a tight and smoothest seam possible, then MS 500 or MS 1000 the seam. When dry I use 90% rubbing alcohol to smooth the MS, repeat if necessary. When satisfied I use white enamel paint (base board paint is cheapest) and use the pour method. I have great results every time but if I can get a good seamless resin intake, that is my first choice. Modeling gets to be a obsessive to a degree, I try to control the level of obsessiveness. Keep posting in prog pics!

Doing stuff I've never done before...

A little extra detail. I drilled the fasteners that are on the Vipers glare shield that were not molded by Tamiya. I'm noticing that even on large scales, Tamiya leaves out a lot of small details that could easily be replicated. Especially in 1/32nd.

Almost done w/the pit. Waiting on some Eduard photoetch from Squadron to come in the mail. The WAR HUD is from "Pig". There will be a pilot in the seat so ignore the speck on the "seat cushion".
