Hey everybody, it's almost that time again!

Now, I hope we all know that there aren't that many rules for Novvember, and probably never will be - other than the fighters (or other types of ship) posted here must resemble the iconic fighter of the Gradius series of video games.

I don't know if anyone's willing to do a VV map like we usually do, but just in case we can post the images here to make it easier for that person to find them.

Also in keeping with tradtion the shot posted here should be the "Viper shot" as outlined below:

The Viper Shot by nnenn


Also I'd like to challenge everyone to try to work in large vertical stabilizers. Often it seems like the vertical stabilizer is overlooked or simply tacked on at the last minute and not part of the original design.

Keep in mind, though, that the design of the Vic Viper dates back to the mid-80s as a video game sprite. The large vertical stabilizer helped define the ship on-screen, and has been a constant in the series ever since. It's just as much a part of the design as the twin forward prongs and lateral rear-biased wings.

Still, I don't want to exclude anyone who just has a nub or maybe an antenna. But you should know we're probably going to give you a little bit of good-natured ribbing.

Also, bonus points (in the form of community respect?) to the person who uses the most unusual piece as an integrated whole (that is, not simply tacked on) for their vertical stabilizer this year.

If that's not enough of a challenge I don't know what is. Because I always find it difficult to work the damn things in.

Do we get bonus points if we participate in both Novvember and NaNoWriMo?

People, remember: one image of your VV of your choosing goes to the group pool, and the viper shot goes to this thread.

The group guidelines say to post only one image of each MOC to the pool.

Just saying.

græy says:

Do the dual prongs have to be identical? Or can they be asymmetrical?

I say this because I'm stuck between two gun designs and I thought "hey, maybe I can put both?" But I don't want to do something looked down upon. :)

Marin Stipkovic says:

I tried to make another VV but it didn't really work out. However if you'd like to add it to the map feel free to do so.

Ice Dragon fighter by Marin Stipkovic


(I also added it to the group pool but if you think it's not a VV, it's cool to remove it.)

Hope I'll make a decent VV this month. (I'll try a classic one.)

EDIT:
I removed it from the pool as it clearly isn't really a VV.

Big Rubber Mallet says:

Ah yes. I have been waiting for this all year.

But I have a bit of a problem. I have been working a large Minifig scale vic viper for about 8 months. And when I started I wasn't fully clear on the guidelines. So it has two dorsal fins instead of one. And the way the body near the back is sculpted around a large technic exhaust. It would be next to impossible to get only one in without completely remodeling the whole thing. You think I you'd let it in anyways?
