old school fans know may this game too good some may love and some just hate it (ore both )
one of the greatest score shooter but also one tough if you don't choose the right weapon for the right situation you're just fucked
about the model: i just have to say this sometimes i have the feeling that the creator don't build there own models some are just badly designed but not in this case quite the opposite when i have to describe it, then only with one word !genius!
this model is just genius and you just know that "Irem" build this one not only one time everything fit just perfect
if i have to prefere a model as a starter then this one try it, build it and enjoy it, this one is just great
you can download the model here the power orb is also avaiable here
honestly, i never played Starfox but as asked me about to build the Arwing i came up with the idea to start this mission
i hope you like it
about the model: this model is just bad ass and if you don't have any experience with papercraft, this will break your neck
the edges are just sharp and the pieces horrible tiny (remind me a lot to the Amaterasu model)
the window is made out of foil, what was also new for me and not really easy, because i choose a very hard one the instruction was also one point, execpt the images i had no other references how to build this (i can't read hieroglyphics )
the wings are moveable from floating to rushing (ore whatever this is called ingame ) and it took me a second attempt to get this system working
but it was fun, and the model looks really cool if you wanna download it,
you can do this here but be warned, you will get no mercy from this model
There they are from Gradius Gaiden,a shooter game(My favorite shooter game)Vic Viper,Falchion B,Lord British and Jade Knight,I made this one via colored pencil then I scan them I made a background for them.
A custom 3-D Bead Sprite of the Vic Viper from the Nintendo game "Gradius". Contains around 5,803 beads that make up 92 separate pieces which interlock to form the final piece. Sorry, no tutorial for this one yet, but maybe one day...
A closer view of my Shooting Game Historica Vic Viper T-301 and Metalion gashapon replicas.
The Metalion appears in the MSX Gradius 2/Nemesis 2/Nemesis '90 Kai game, and is the successor to the original Vic Viper, with permanent weapons upgrade capability.
The Vic Viper T-301 appears in Gradius V (as well as in the CG movies of the "Gradius III & IV" compilation); it is the latest Vic Viper model produced by the Gradius forces in the year 8010, and is the first model shown to have time travel capability.
And now, for something quite different from the usual aircraft two-views I've been making...
Here's the iconic Vic Viper starfighter of the Gradius video game series, in its T-301 iteration. First seen on the cover of the Gradius III & IV compilation as well as CG sequences within it, the T-301 then makes its first full-blown appearance in Gradius V, and then in Gradius ReBirth.
The T-301 is easily distinguished from its BP-827Z predecessor (last seen in Gradius IV) by the sharp, angular design of its prow (which elaborately reconfigures when firing its high-powered laser), as well as the two oversized "photon torpedo" missiles it carries externally.
I'm a huge Gradius fan. It all started with the sister title Life Force on my NES. Since then, I have been a SHMUP fan my whole life.
When they released this Gradius Sky Girls 1/60 Scale Vic Viper kit last year, I just had to pick it up. I am pleased with the results of my work. It looks pretty good, but I'll be honest, it isn't one of my best works.
Despite what I've read from model review places online, this kit, for whatever reason, was an absolute pain for me to put together. This kit is supposed to be snap-together (similar to all those fun-to-build Gundam models), but it certainly didn't work that way for me. Often I had to remove tabs, fill gaps, and do so many other modifications that I felt like I was assembling a poorly casted resin kit rather than an injection molded Japanese model. Maybe I got a bad shipment or something, because no one else seems to have any complaints regarding this issue in the slightest.
Anyways, enough of my complaining. I'm hoping that if anyone else decides to build this kit that they have a much easier time than I did.
I love Gradius and the Vic Viper, but much like the game, this kit was difficult to get through, and required a lot of skill and patience. However, in the end, that made the reward all the more sweet.
