We did it! With just the folks attending today's supermegaawesomerad ChiefLUG meeting, we filled the entire hangar!

Hangar Filled!

Sure, the hangar's not finished, and a couple of these models are incomplete, but we filled every stall, and had crew and techy bits strewn throughout. Fradel and Gary's Vipers were brand new to me, and looked great, as did Scotty's WIP Heavy Raider, if a bit underscaled. Bram's models were also really well done.

ChiefLUG members new and old were in attendance, and I think everyone had a great time. It was an excellent test run of what should be a really rad display at BrickCon.

I started a new Viper last night:

I flipped the colors of the first Viper I made, and kind of surprised I have enough parts in dark red to do it this close to the original design.

Hangar Update

Hangar Progress

This 7 and a half foot slice of ridiculous is taking up a nice chunk of floor in our living room. It's come a long way since my last post, but still not even close to being finished.

Baseplates arrived yesterday. I had bought extras, but then decided there needed to be more floorspace (for tools and crew and stuff,) and used the extra plates to widen the hangar. Now I need to buy more...

Oh, and Andrew brought his newest Viper and Raptor over, and I got mine back from Fradel, who was borrowing it to make his own. We also built a bunch of figs based on characters from the show.

August 7th- ChiefLUG Initiation Progress (updated)

That's a lotta Vipers (and other ships!)
I posted this mosaic of all the current finished or WIP Vipers that have been tagged or added to the ChiefLUG pool. I couldn't be more excited for the turnout so far. The last few days have been especially rewarding as several models have been finished and posted and I hear about more and more in the works.

This display is going to be EPIC.
