This is a bloody lovely build, but am I the only one that thinks the MK7 viper is as ugly as hell???

Needs a pair of Phoenixes...

Nope, not the only one.  I really prefer the lines of the Mk2.

I like the ML2 but I still think the original viper is the best of the lot..

Thanks everyone :)

That's true - very disturbing fit issues. Esspecially with glueing top and bottom part of fuselage together. Partition line was 1 mm wide. Also CA glue is strongly recommended 'cause bottom part is slightly distorted (or it was only my bad luck).
