Herbie Goes to Gradius


With the end of mysterious Ma.Ktober, the roll of sci-fi themed months continues through the darkening nights with NoVVember. Builders from all over the interweb take a basic set of rules for the layout of a space-fighter, based on Konami’s Vic Viper and stretch them almost to breaking point. A case in point is TLCB regular Piratecox’s Herbie Rod Viper Classic: it’s all in there somewhere!

In the meantime, another TLCB regular, F@bz, has come up with a ship which looks suitable for a Milk Tray Man of the Future. Controversially, this Vic Viper uses (whisper it) parts from Mega Bloks. This might be heresy to some but the inspiration behind NoVVember, the late Nnenn, often used clone parts or cut Lego to fit his models. You can make up your own mind by following the link in the text.
