Chris Madison has put together a superb LEGO Viper — the classic Mark II from Battlestar Galactica. Don’t let initial appearances fool you — this model is enormous, over 100 studs long and weighing 10 kilos!
Beauty is not necessarily complex. Simon Pickard proves simplicity goes a long way. He uses a single part to represent the Cylon Raider ships, and his Colonial Viper fighters don’t require more than 20 pieces. Minimalism may become a new trend in LEGO creations!
There were only a handful of Vipers remaining to defend humanity in the reimagined series. It was always painful to watch them go boom against the practically unlimited number of Raiders. Simon obviously isn’t as sentimental as I am – he prefers to blow one up for this creation. Shame on him!
