The morphed Viper is still on my wants list too. However, I only collect what I call final prepros. These are the ones, where the model is painted up and it all there. Partials, resins, unpainteds etc I tend to leave behind. So although it is awesome you found a morphed Viper, because it is resin I am not jealous. I know there are 2 styles of final prepros (silver and silver with bullet holes) at least, and didn't Larry show off some others in a report recently too? There are some out there. Eventually I will get one. I have 2 Dodge Stealths (one black, the other black/green striped).

:) :D :P

You're like me when collecting prepro's. I don't collect resins or unpainted metal samples. They must be in what you call final prepro's. Why you say!!!!! I have no clue, it's just a preference and that's all!!! I have yet to obtain the silver version with or without bullet holes. I hope to add those versions some day.

You did excellent at the Gathering. Really nice models!!! Sorry we didn't have a chance to get together and chat. Maybe next year I won't be so busy running around.
