Welcome to a new and bright new year hopefully filled with memorable and very creative builds as 2016 was filled with so many amazing and positively magnificent creations across the entire world that the creators who built them were generous to share with us all.
2016 I had been not that creative but sitting on the fence watching all the creations being posted.
With 3 builds for the year. The mining ship, death ball one and the Orion space cruiser. Not many but they were being shown around Tasmania. My policy this year one showing one ship so I can build more like in the past early years.
Saying this I have been spending more time on the property landscaping. Itís a big area and bigger ambitions. The weather is always the key to what gets done. Bad weather Iím inside creating, good weather Iím outdoors.
Now 2017 I have 3 builds on the go and the first to be completed, photographed, edited and now for the world to see.
Apollo :- Alright Starbuck where did you hide my viper?
Starbuck :- I have no idea what your talking about Apollo, itís right in front of you.
Apollo :- well were in the hanger condition is set throughout the ship and the fracking Cylons are blowing the pogies out of the fleet.
Starbuck :- Iím off Captain got toasters to decommission.
The Worlds famous and well known Colonial Viper has come to Earth for a brief visit in all itís majestic glory.
Having spent nearly 6 months designing and building the mega sized viper I feel it is ready for the rest of the Earthlings to see.
I have done a bit of research looking to find another larger in Lego and came up with none. A shame it could have assisted with creating this model. Iím happy with the results and that is what matters.
185 studs long x 93 studs wide x 67 studs high
59 inches x 29 inches x 21 inches high
1498mm x 737mm x 533mm
It is so hard after photographing to select a few to edit and post as they all looked ideal so I focused on more classical film shots that we would say ď I remember that.Ē
Ok I added more because I liked them too.
Adding special effects made me quietly make the noises and thankfully this build is to heavy to fly around the room Ö.. Only if we had anti gravity stands so that they can be easier to work withÖ Iíll dream on.

A special size comparison for one of my favorite LDD designers. GO STEPHAN Ö. It was hard to build this one with out the inspiration your design had given me. Thank youÖ
Gorgeous, Garry! Totally thrown off by the scale. The first shot looked like it may just be miniscale, but the comparison to the minifig brought it all home for me. As always, the greebling is as good as it gets in the game. The edits are perfect. Really makes you feel like you're looking at film footage. Just superb.
A 185 long Viper? This is madness.
THIS IS GARRY KING!
lol, man, this looks so good in the space shots. And the nose is finally portrayed correctly here. Wow. This will be a great barometer of where this site is these days... Killer MOC dude.

Wow, this is really impressive! I started a Mk1 Viper MOC some time ago myself, being inspired by your BSG work. The scale and attention to detail on this model are truly awe-inspiring - as always!
Thank you Simon for your comment and I am glad that you liked it. I just looked at your viper... BRILLIANT.
