Topics I've Started

Cherchez La Femme/Tango 004.

03 May 2014 - 07:01 PM

My latest project, built while my foot healed after the Seattle IPMS show. 

 

Fleet reserve colonial MK2 Viper from the Leonis colony. 

 

Each of the 12 colonies of Kobal get their own fleet reserve units, and I figured they would be a lot like the air national guard units we have in real life. An older fighter that was in good shape would be kept around for a variety of missions. This MK2 is used for atmospheric air combat training, so it has a camouflage paint scheme to keep it hard to see near the ground. Being from Leonis the pinup girl and French/Leonese saying on the nose is perfectly acceptable.

The safety placards, colonial seal, and no step decals are out of the kit. The Leonis flag, ship name, and the Triangle T (denoting a training unit) are custom printed. all the white lettering is dry transfer.  The pinup girl is from Pinupsplus.com

 

Thank you,

I just seen this, and it was supposed to be an actual part used by Olds dealers. 

 

How would I be able to replicate a part like that? Vacuum form, clear resin, other???
