A little while ago somebody tweeted Ralph a picture of a shopping cart full of these, and it reminded me that they were going to make a 1:18 version of the SRT Viper, so i went straight to ebay and bought a red one.

Some pics with a couple other Vipers:

Detail is pretty good. The interior is mainly black with some detail. The doors, hood and "hatch" open

Nice pics. That new Viper looks better in the mini-flesh than the real one in the magazines.

On your primered models, you disassemble before painting or tape off everything?
I normally disassemble, strip, prime, paint and reassemble, but I happen to have a model in the "paint shop" right now that I taped off and primered over the stock paint, just to see how it comes out. After the primer, I'm going to hit it with flat olive.

Stripped down to metal. They've both been like that for years...seems that after you buy a real car, all your efforts go to it instead!
