Viper Squadron


Very pleased to say that all the Vipers for the build made it to the South Cheshire Militaire show in Crewe on Sunday 27th February 2011 and the whole thing looked fantastic.

Must say the show itself was very quiet compared to 2009 (which was the last show I attended there) and from what others were saying also compared to 2010.  Not sure why as the weather was OK, but the Carling Cup was on the TV…?

The Viper Hanger was the main item on the SFM:uk table (in fact we concentrated on it so much we were a little short on models to fill out the rest of the space…will have to watch for that in future years).

So here are an absolute stack of pictures:

Individual Builds and Details

Apologies to those I didn’t take as many pictures of-thought I had them all pretty evenly covered but doesn’t seem to be the case.

The Stig’s Colonial Cousin made an appearance. “Some say his mother really is a toaster and that if he had his way all Vipers would be V12 powered.”
