CultTVman Science Fiction 2014
1/32 Viper Mk.VII A136
Model by Oggie Gonzalez, USA
My Moebius 1:32 Mark VII Viper. The blue-ish gray color was attained by mixing Testors dark sea blue and light ghost and dark ghost grays. The hull was weathered using a salt/hairspray technique: The model was first painted a silver color. Salt and hairspray was then applied and allowed to dry before painting the bluish overcoat. Using water to dilute the salt allowed me to then expose the metallic undercoat giving it the speckled worn, beaten appearance. The model was further weathered with pastels and a black wash. The interior cockpit was detailed with a decal sheet purchased from CultTVman's website.
