NnoVVember 2012: A modular ADU (Alien Defense Unit) fighter converting into a Vic Viper.
About this creation
A tribute to Nnenn: The ADU Modular Vic Viper
This model is heavily inspired by two of Mark Stafford's original Alien Conquest models: 7066 Earth Defense HQ and 7067 Jet Copter Encounter.
Mark had the great idea of including a Vic Viper in the official set Earth Defense HQ. It even had some stickers with a Viper logo and Nnenn's name on it. I wanted to make my own ADU Viper including another idea from the Alien Conquest models.
This is the result:
And the rear view:
But hey, that's no Vic Viper, is it? No it isn't, not yet... For a Vic Viper you need a second one, ...
... then fly in close formation, ...
... move the inner wing upwards ...
... into vertical position, ...
... fly closer ...
... and - Click! - There it is!
Now, that's a Vic Viper! :-))
The folding and combination function is the same as on the little UFOs from the 7067 Jet Copter Encounter set. I kept the middle section of this model almost unchanged and built the rest around it.
With both wings folded upwards the fighters can be stored on a carrier. It's possible to add as many models as you wish.
And a little look inside.
Now this is my LEGO ADU Modular Vic Viper. I hope you like it :-))
