NnoVVember 2012: A little mod of my 5890 Cosmic Cruiser in classic space colours converting it into a Vic Viper.
About this creation
A tribute to Nnenn - My first contribution to NnoVVember 2012: The Classic Space Cosmic Viper.
I've had the idea for this mod some months ago. The LDD file has been ready for quite a while and I built the real model a few weeks ago, but I wanted to wait until NnoVVember, the month of the Vic Viper, to post this model.
So here it is, the Vic Viper version of my G1 Classic Space 6890 Cosmic Cruiser:
A little tail on the top plus a complete set of new wings to get the forword prongs and the rear wings.
Another Vic Viper shot ("Birds eye front view").
A left rear view
Opening up, ...
... pulling back (*beep* *beep* *beep*), ...
... and there it is: The scooter! The scooter is my favourite part of the model, but I have to give credits to the designers of the original 6890 Cosmic Cruiser for that.
Let's take a ride with the scooter!
And a look inside with the docked scooter.
So, this is my Classic Space Cosmic Viper. I hope you like it! :-))
A Happy NnoVVember 2012 to all of you! :-))
it s beautiful, I remember as a kid I used to love that model, never actually ever got it, curiously, I no longer like the idea of a detachable unit now, but, I used to when I was young, in coincidence with this, while looking at yours, I realise that my last used parts purchase includes all this...including the base plate! never knew the name, vic viper? , ok, I think I m gonna have myself a vic viper tomorrow lol! thanks!
Quoting Topsy Creatori(StoveTop nomore!) ... love the scooter idea! :)
Quoting Nick Barret ... The way the scooter separates with pilot is soooo neat!
Quoting Senator Chinchilla . ... Neat scooter too.
Thanks for your kind comments on the scooter, but the credits for that have to go to the designers of the original 6890 Cosmic Cruiser: http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=6890-1 I've added credits for that, now ;-))
