At the top of the rack is the V4 Super Viper
Second shelf is the v2 8s viper that I am currently flying
Third shelf is the v3 turbine. I need a engine and a few other things before I can fly it and work on my turbine waiver.
But am in no big rush to get there got a good deal on the airframe I couldn't pass up.

Bottom shelf is another v2 super viper. This is the one that I will be doing a make over on.

I purchase this v2 HSD Super Viper for $40. It's a 8s all stock except the previous owner added E-Brakes. Everything works but haven't tested the brakes.

The fuselage needs a lot of work and that's going to take up most of my time getting it ready for paint.
The main wings and tail section are in much better condition. I feel that the foam on the aileron and flaps are to thin. So was thinking of adding thin layers of balsa to stiffen them up. Or perhaps fiberglassing them and perhaps the fuselage as well. I've never fiberglas a model before so not sure if I should go that route.

I may not be working on it every day. But hope to have it finish by summer of 2020 if all goes well.

All servo's work but think I will replace them as they seem to be the original, and no telling when they may go bad.

Replacing the noser gear with V3/ V4 nose gear.
Replacing nose gear compartment plastic mounting
Replacing E-Brakes

Upgrading power system to 12s. I have a 12s stock setup or may go with a JetFan 110 still thinking about it.

Will add air ducting to the side of the fuselage and close of the bottom section.

Am open to all suggestions and positive comments:
