With a little more customizing you could get awfully close to a viper methinks.
I did something similar when I was a kid, when I took a broken X-Wing and turned it into one of the bad-guys ships from Buck rogers.
Yep, its not quite there, 4 engines instead of 3, the tail fin is too tall and the nose too sharp, but hey it only took a few hours!
Greetings from the UK!
I thought about something like this a few years back, never got around to it though
awesome work. was never really a huge BSG fan but it looks great, could quite easily fit into the SW universe.
I've actually wanted to do something similiar with a broken X-Wing / TIE Fighter and make an Ugly. problem is I still need the parts from both ships to build it. I sold the broken TIE and X-Wing at a yard sale for a couple of bucks.
Longing for the Good Old Kenner Days where SW Figures were in great supply and everyone was able to find their favorite characters etc..... Hasbro you need to follow this example !
