I was seriously going for the best possible all-around proportions on this one. Next to a Minifig, with a Minifig, next to my other SC cars, and for the Viper itself. I'm extremely happy with the result! In fact, if TLG didn't make that 1x1 quarter-round tile, it may have never seen the light of day. Not to mention the new and much-loved 2x2 wing plates...
I hope you enjoy it! The build is actually very conventional despite a couple sly techniques in the front and rear ends, making the fitment of a Minifigure w/racing helmet a piece o' cake. Hopefully I can bring it to life one day (and by that point, 3D-print a better set of wheels ;))
w/attachable Tonneau roof:
Of course, if a body-colored hardtop roof is your thing, I didn't have time to render that one for ya xD
Dodge Viper GTS (1st-generation, Phase SR II)
A racing suit-equipped Minifig fits easily into the GTS as well:
When I joked with Andy during the first SC Challenge about how fun it was and having one every week, this wasn't quite what I was expecting! ^_^
wow this is very nice, shame i didn't see it sooner, as there are some great details here. and indeed the proportions are terrific, something i had to sacrifice keeping mine to 6wide years ago. fantastic work all around!
