Moebius 1/32 scale “Battlestar Galactica” Colonial Viper Mk.II

Like Rebel ships from “Star Wars,” Galactica’s Vipers take a beating. Aaron used weathering powders to make Starbuck’s fighter look like it’s tangled with a more than a few Cylons.

The original “Battlestar Galactica” was pretty cheesy, but the Colonial Viper was a great-looking fighter. When the reimagined BSG premiered on the SyFy channel in 2003, I was intrigued to see what the new Viper would be like. I wasn’t disappointed. The Viper Mk.II hits all the right design cues – three engines, triangular wing arrangement, long nose – but it’s been updated with wing sweep and more curves. (And they added maneuvering thrusters to give it more realistic physics!)
