Dodge Viper RT/10

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

Here is the Monogram/Revell Dodge Viper RT/10. This is the most modern car I have ever built - and it's almost a 20 year old car now...

This kit started life as a snap together, which I didn't know until I purchased one and read a review. There is still a good parts count and the parts, despite multiple reissues, are still pretty sharp. There is a lot of clean up, though, and lots of mold lines and weird things due to the "snap" features (some of which I didn't quite remedy, but I tried).

I made a few custom alterations and changed the wheels and tires - they are from the new Revell 1962 Corvette kit. Brake rotors are Aoshima parts. The supension has been adjusted and it sits a couple inches lower. I added some basic wires to the engine as well.

Color is Tamiya Candy Lime Green with MM Wet Look Clear.

I apologize if the photos are too big - Photobucket finally switched on me today and I need to figure things out...

Thanks!

Erik, that's the best looking Viper I've ever seen! You can't tell it's derived from a snap kit. I wouldn't have chose green, but wow, it looks great! Love the wheels, very cool. One sweet ride.

Very fine & clean work. Love the color & wheel choices. Nice added details, too. The new lower stance helps out a lot.

The Revell/Monogram snap kits ARE very nice kits.
