Yippee!
(New Toy) Viking 2-E Race

Well, I've waiting since the beginning of January (trying to order since early/mid December) and thanks to Martin, my Viking was waiting on me when I got home from work.

So far I have only unpacked it, and put it together to get a few pix. Even though the scheme isn't exactly what I intended, I'm still thrilled.

Now to see how long it takes to get it in the air.

Bill, (one happy camper)

No complaints, just expectations not met 100%....only 95%....still 200% happy. Considering it's not the stock scheme, I think it turned out extremely well anyway. I guess it could have read like I was complaining, but I really wasn't.

Having my own expectations, and not keeping my mind open is my bad, not Jiri's. He did an outstanding job. It's not really possible for anyone to see it exactly the same in their mind, as I saw it in mine.

Thanks again Martin, for making it possible to get my Viking

That's a 60" TV. Yes, the tail feathers are a good size. The camera make it look a little weird.

Hi Bill,

you are welcome. It was quite fast, I am happy you like it and regarding slightly different color scheme - maybe it was lost in translation She looks fantastic anyway.
