This is my contribution to the missing man formation at BrickWorld in honor of Nnenn.
Iíve been putting this off and putting it off for weeks now. Not because I didnít WANT to build this mind you, quite the opposite. I couldnít think of a BETTER reason to build something for someone else than this.
My issue was every time I sat down to try to build a Vic Viper, someone else would post one that was 10 times better than anything I could come close to building.
I decided that this was too important for me NOT to contribute. I know Nnenn wouldnít have given me a hard time just because my VV wasnít as good as someone elseís. Overall, Iím actually happy with this. Sure, I couldaí (and still can) made a few changes to it, but all in all, I like it and hope you do to!
Fourth Wall Commentary:
Itís always tragic when something like this happens, even more so when itís someone from our community. What Iíve really enjoyed seeing here, is how the community has come together from across the board to support this ďgroup build.Ē Iíll admit, Nnenn and I werenít ďfriendsĒ so to speak. I only knew him through word of mouth and from seeing a few of his creations. What matters to me, is that a member of our little community was taken from his friends and family long before his time. My prayers go out to those friends and family he left behind. God bless.
Hey, Chris, I dunno who to bring this to, or whether it's been brought up before, but there's a very racist member called montereyjack514 headley who's posting creations like this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/54928
Maybe it's been brought up before, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks.
A nice tribute and a very unique design. Also I am working on large project at the time I was hoping you would be kind enough to look over it. I will post a moc with W.I.P. pics stop by and look it if you have the chance
Amen, brother. Nice tribute to our fallen comrade. Despite my inability to attend, I did build one myself, I think you were too distracted by the great 'Are Clones Art?' debate of 2010 to comment. That or you don't love me anymore. :^) Be safe out there~H

Right on Chris, thanks for participating in the Brickworld VV tribute.
Nice sentiments Chris, I guess it's nice to know that a group like this can actually take the time to miss someone. Oddly, this is a rare kind of site where a common interest can help keep a bunch of cyber friends active and chatting and laughing, without any personal obligations or risk. I guess that's why it's so sad when someone is lost, other than the obvious tradgedy of it, we lose a friend...
Nice. This will fit right in -- looks like a nice little short range fighter. Perhaps it's best use is in near-space support of landing operations, you know, protecting the dropships and such. I like the color scheme, too. One more week!
I love the wings! but for a dude with like, thousands of bricks, it COULD be better. If my sis hadn't lost the pictures I had of my ADV-99 Raptor!! it would've been kick 4$$! not to mention all the other MOCs I had in store, and my sis thought we put em into the computer already.
