Thanks :) Same time era for both ships and the same original designer results in something that can be seamlessly merged into one ship :D

Great work mate, do you know that the original two ships are rumoured to be designed by the same guy? The Viper is rumoured to have been rejected by George Lucas and later the designer was employed to make the ships on BSG, which the Viper suited Larson's needs. I also heard that Lucas tried to sue Larson due to the design but lost the case or withdrew his case.

Still a great piece of work, very nice. Looks awesome. XD

It's no rumor, they were designed by the same guy: my personal hero, Ralph Mcquarrie.

He designed pretty much everything for Star Wars down to the X-Wing fighter and Darth Vader's armor.

When called upon to design the Colonial Viper he initially created a radically different design, which was rejected in favor of something more evocative of the X-Wing fighter. (So yeah, the inevitable law suit wasn't entirely without grounds. ^^;)

The unused Viper Design would later find use as the Star Fighter from Buck Rogers.

A link to the news, [link] or you can google "Lucas sues Battlestar" to find some more information. Considering it happened in the 1980's there isn't a heap on the subject.

Thanks :) From what I remember, there was some kind of exchange between the movies in terms of ship designs. I remember Mcquarrie altered some designs when we went from Star Wars to BSG. No wonder these two mix so well :D
