If you only use white or blue LED's. You can power them with two AA batteries with no need of resistors.

Been a little burnt out with 40k stuff lately and after watching a lot of Badgrendals videos I've decided to have a crack at a model with some lighting effects - quite drawn towards the BSG Viper but which do you think is best the Revell or Moebius kit?
there the same kit
the reimagined mark 2 and 7 vipers by moebius where basicly reboxed by revell

and revell charges $10 more per kit...
Not really... If you're in Europe, Revell's kits are way cheaper (no import), but in the US, it's the other way around...

Still, Revell does rework and improve upon the decals, but for the Mk II, Moebius has included a resin Pilot whereas in the Revell kit, is the styrene one only...

All depends on which mark of Viper he's looking at.
If he's doing the TOS Viper, then the new Moebius is the way to go. That's what I was referring to when I made the suggestion

Yep - liked the look of the Mk VII but went for the MkII because of the colour scheme - didn't think I could do the quite plain VII justice

The kit arrived today and narrowly avoided being snaffled by my oldest boy - think I might pick up another kit and try a mini group build within this group build lol :D

Blimey went on Amazon and found the Revel version of the kit priced at £12.74 incl P&P versus the £31.29 incl P&P I paid for the Moebius version - couldn't resist that :eek:

Fingers crossed it arrives for his birthday at the weekend ;D

I have been out of the loop for a while and just found Grendels and Adam's video on this one.
Count me in, especially as I have just had a couple of kits arrive at work to be picked up tonight that will fit this theme perfectly. Now I just have to decide, at the moment they are in order of what id like to build.

Sorry to dissappoint but the Nightingale got he nod after I ran out of space for its massive box.
Especially after stashing Igor who has a box 1 and a half tomes bigger than any of the other iron Man/avengers kit boxes I have. He is massive.
Not sure where the nightingale will go when built but I'll worry about that later. Build log up this weekend I hope

Initial impressions comparing the Moebius kit to the Revel version favour the Revel - the moebius kit isn't as clean a mould as the Revel but there's not THAT much in it. However when offering the hull sections up the Moebius definately doesn't line up as well as the Revell, when you match the nose up nicely there's a noticeable "step" at the rear end whereas the Revel kit matches up very well, whether this is caused by the additional registration pins on the Revel kit keeping things lined up versus my shaky old hands and elastic bands keeping the Moebius version together or poorer manufacture is another question - neither of these factors are huge until you take the cost differential into account and even then you aren't talking about vast sums of money.

When it comes down to it we're both enjoying building both models and that's what counts :)
