The base stand pops into the undercarriage of the Viper, and you can gimal the Viper to pose in different directions...it's a good friction fitting with a solid hold.....

Conclusion on the building process: This was much more fun to build than I anticpated. What really got me was, the freedom to roll with it; to not be bound by trying to capture exact details, exact camo colors, etc. It could morph and become anything I wanted it to become. That energized my inspiration and turbocharged my experimentation and creativity. Everyone should step WAY out of the box every now and then, I am a firm believer in that now! I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did building her! And thanks for bearing with so many pics and posts in such a short time frame...

AND DRUM ROLL PLEASE.......

And the money shot....

You know, I had this at the 2013 Wings & Wheels IPMS Show, and I thought of all the models I had, this would take a medal home fr me. It didn't. I was...honestly....shocked. Perhaps it was too weathered for their taste...maybe they didn't get the concept of the atmospheric gig, I don't know. But it's all good, as I love it and it was my medal winner in so many ways. This is still #1 my Top 3 Favorites.

Thanks for handing in there with this very long thread :D
