(Editor's Notes: I'm finally done with this build. I wanted to do something fancy but I've been feeling kind of depressed in real life as I'm going through some rough times. I'll post what pictures that I have of it but I hope that it looks good for you. I have some Nemesis (UK/EU MSX version) add-ons as well in some of the pictures. I hope that you enjoy the pics.)

Well done!! Nice improvements and nice work on the details.
Thanks, Marc dz. I feel sad about criticizing Gorn but I was kind of moody for reasons that I had previously explained to Crismo. Perhaps my friends on MOC Pages might help me go through the grief that my family has gone through recently.
I realized that, not too long ago, I saw some more images of the Victory/Vic Viper and I found out that I had built the engines all wrong. However, since I MAY be getting new parts within a year or so, I could build an improved version of this vessel. I merely built this vehicle as a dry run to see if I could a. build a Vic Viper, b. build one well, c. build a decent amount of greebles (detailing LEGO pieces) within a build, d. successfully build in a SNOT (Studs Not On Top) style, and e. build in a consistent color scheme. While I did not have all of the parts that I wanted built, let alone available, I think that I succeeded for the most part with building this vessel. To wit, I now know that my vessel lacks the small little fin that is located behind the windscreen, the engines in the proper places (which should be two Concorde engine-like projections that are located one under each wing as opposed to the back having three engines) and that the main engine area should simply be the device that draws in the power for the engine (at least that is how I interpret the Vic Viper and its mechanisms to work, anyway) instead of three engines....oh, and the windscreen needs to be oval in shape and I need to make a life pod conversion kit for the cockpit. I apologize for the errors as I now realize them in hindsight.

Welldone Vic Viper! most I like the trans-elements. Great work on the shaping and details!
Thank you. I did with what I could on making the Vic Viper, but I really wish that I could have had those long gray parts in blue and the cockpit and window to be done differently, namely, for the window to be that cool oval shape and for the cockpit to be more like the one in the actual game. However, it WAS my first ever attempt at making a Vic Viper, so I guess I should not be too hard on myself for my first time building one on here, let alone building one period.

Sorry I didn't look at the final version ! Much better like that, it's now a real good Viper ! Hope things will go better in your life :)
Thanks, Crismo. Losing that person in my life was tough but it was tougher on my sister because she was in love with him. I apologize to those people on here if I seemed a bit rough lately but having something like that happen to a person that I almost considered as family, well, simply put, I am still trying to comprehend what went on and all of the other things that people go through when someone that they care about dies.
