Built for Novvember, didn't get it finished in time, sooo.... posted to mark the release of the Lego Movie! Which was good, by the way!
About this creation
A flight of 'BLaThaN' Vipers on manoeuvres over Taurea
Never mind, the pilot seems happy enough in spite of the delay.
No gimmicks this time, just a straight neo-classic space Vic Viper.
Hardly an original concept, but actually I'm really pleased with it - I think it's probably the prettiest spaceship I've built. Which is a testimony to the lasting appeal of both the Vic Viper formula and the Classic Space colourscheme!
As an extra bonus... wings-fall-off mode! Ideal for emergency escapes.
Rumours that this mode was accidentally discovered by a 3-year old playing with the prototype, and then incorporated as a 'safety feature,' have been hotly denied by no-one whatsoever.
A great look to this VV. I like how smooth it is. I also like how the guns attach to the inside of the front prongs. It must be one of the first spacecraft where the wings falling off was regarded as a safety feature!
