I double that! I just saw this this morning (I knew it happened, but I hadn't seen any pictures of it yet), and I was really impressed with the whole display. I thought you were gonna just put all those fighters on a table! Boy was I surprised!

Anyway, congrats again to Ry and to all those who participated in this group effort!

Seen on TBB also.

That black and white Viper at the bottom of the pictures is awesome. Haven't seen that yet.

A belated congrats to one and all who took part.

I think you're referring to mine. If so, I'm glad you like it. Unfortunately, not only was it NOT at the ChiefLUG Clusterfrak, it wasn't even built until after! I would have been honored to have it there however. I think I still have some of the pics up on my Flickr.

That'd be this one:


Frakkin Gizmodo, they'll link to the original blog but not to the image owners.

Thanks guys. Couldn't have done it without the rest of ChiefLUG, but since most of them don't read or post here, I'll pass along your kind words Smile

"Fracking Frack!" That's beautiful! Did anyone keep a record of the piece count or number of hours logged? Embarassed

A lot and a lot. Wink

Some people built Vipers faster than others. Some, like me, didn't build fast at all.

The hangar was started at the end of July, and I didn't finish until the day before we left for BrickCon. 2 solid months from start to finish. And I honestly have no idea how many parts I used.

Another detail is I can probably grantee not a single viper was built identical to another so part count is more of a ball park idea.
