    I know this was thought of before, http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/224115-does-anyone-else-get-same-vibe-mold.html but I havent seen any attempt at it as of yet. I wanted to try back then but the twins were to much to be cutting up. Finally, I got lucky enough to find them at one of my local Meijers for about $15 so I figured, why not.

    This is still a work in progress, About 80%complete, but I wanted to show what I have so far. Of course the main body is Animated Jetfire while all 3 wings and thrusters are form Energon Jetfire and the head is from Classics Treadbolt (AKA Classics Jetfire) lol. The cockpit and main back thruster chamber is from TF movie 1 Dreadwing. I know that Battlestar Galatica doesnt have swords but the Idea just works whit him, dont you think? Havent thought of a name yet. Any sugestions? C&C welcomed.

    thats pretty freaking cool. Are you going to blend the pieces together in alt mode (the vipers panels are smoother) or just keep it like is? Not a critisism, just a question. It looks awesome the way it is. And i say keep the swords, make it yours!

    Thanks. Love getting complements.
    I do plan on filling some of the gaps, if thats what you mean. Thanks.
    Now that I think of it, It does look like one. lol
    I was thinking the idea of classics hot shot but his head looked small in the body type. I thought that this was a much better representation of the helmet. Thanks for all the complements.

    I like! I like very much! In fact, the design has inspired me a bit for a similar project I've wanted to try. Where does the main thruster go in robot mode?

    It folds up on his back. Thats why I decided to make the cockpit a shield. the last pic shows how.

    I really can't wait to see this guy finished. Do you plan to do more with the top part of the 'backpack' in fighter mode to fill in gaps? So far you've got the look of the Viper down quite well. Good luck on the rest of him. :)

    That is just frakkin' awesome. I totally always had that vibe from those two. Plus with the extra jet, you could do a Viper Mark I and a Viper Mark III.

    Also from that mold, with the combined other ideas like a StarFighter from The Last Starfighter come to mind.

    Man, me likey!

    I have been hoping to eventually find a cheap twin to try my hand at the Viper.

    No all yours needs is a Cylon Fighter to fly against.
    I was thinking you could use a SWTF MagnaGuard as a base.

    Yes! I was hoping it did that! This would be perfect for something I'm working on... all I need now is a Jetfire/Jetstorm set to work with.
