28mm Viper Suit, Part 5: Main Hull Rework Begun

I am redoing the venerable 15mm Viper Suit in 28mm. 

This requires taking apart the original build and resculpting and redetailing it to suit different casting and assembly techniques.

This entry is Part 5.  Here's the link to Part 4.  You can find links farther back in the series from there.




 Front, side, top, and perspective views.  The reworked 28mm model is on the right, the darker model on the left is the 15mm original, scaled up for reference.




Work begins on the cockpit. I'm not going to get too fancy, since it's a pit for the mold makers.  Adding too much detail down in a hard-to-reach place will just create mold rippers.
Keep your mold makers happy.



 Yes, that's a 28mm up-scaled ScorpionMech.  Pretty cool, huh?


Here's the main hull rework, with a pair of upsized secondary weapons and no shoulder mounts/spacers.  I want this design to be flexible, so if a user wants a minimalist build, it will still look good.

Well, that's all for now.

Best,
JBR
