Viper Mk2 is considered by many fans to be the most iconic space superiority fighter ever used by the Colonial Fleet in the course of the Battlestar Galactica sci-fi TV series. The exceptionally agile space vehicle was brought into service a few months into the First Cylon War and eventually played a pivotal role in both the Ghost Fleet Offensive and Operation Raptor Talon. Viper Mk2 earned substantial renown both as Fleet’s auxiliary craft and as an icon for many sci-fi enthusiasts. The author of the incredible space fighter for 3D printing spent 142 hours in total to come up with the project to impress any true fan of the space drama. The fighter Viper Mk2 for 3D printing is depicted with its long sleek profile coupled with three powerful rear-facing engines. The 3D artist made sure to pay close attention to the details that define the powerful fighter and equipped the model with 30 mm cannons, composite nose cone, and opened connections on the sides of the ship. If you take a closer look at the model’s canopy, you will even notice the ejection seat, center console and a maneuvring stick. They say that the Viper Mk2 is so agile that it can reorient vertically in mere seconds and the fighter’s maneuverability is limited only by the pilot’s skills. If you are also overcome with nostalgia for the scenes of Viper Mk2 waiting to be deployed into combat through magnetic launch tubes of Battlestar Galactica, we recommend that you dive into this fantastic 3D printing project! 


Viper Mk II for 3D printing is a static assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took Gambody team 38 hours in total. For you to receive the cleanest 3D printing result possible and to minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support the fighter model was divided into many assembly parts, e.g. its nose cone, canopy frame, cannons, ejection seat, maneuvering stick, exhaust outlets, vertical control surface, etc. are provided as separate STL files. The windows on the canopy are also provided as four separate files for you to print them using transparent filament or access the highly detailed interior of a single-pilot cockpit. There can also be found special tunnels throughout the hollow body of the Viper Mk II that were designed by our team for you to easily introduce LED wiring for illumination of the dashboard (cockpit) and thrust vectoring exhaust outlets. For you to display the Viper Mk II model among your spaceship collection there is a stand provided, though its usage is optional - you can also assemble the fighter with landing gear that can also be concealed with caps. All assembly parts are provided in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out in order to ensure the smoothness of the details’ surfaces after printing and that the 3D printing beginners won't face difficulties when placing the parts on a build plate. When downloading any model's file you will also receive "Assembly Manual" for FFF/FDM 1.0 and DLP/SLA/SLS 1.0 versions in PDF format.

The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers. All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

The model's scale was calculated from the actual length of the Viper MK II that is 8400 mm. The 3D printing model's chosen scale is 1/32 for FFF/FDM version and 1/64 for DLP/SLA/SLS version.


FFF/FDM 1.0 version features:
- Contains 35 parts;
- A printed shuttle is 190 mm tall, 144 mm wide, 272 mm deep;
- Assembly kit includes lock 34_Ge_lock_10H_x9 to attach the model's parts securely without glue that needs to be printed 9 times;
- Tunnels throughout the fighter's body are provided for LED wiring to light up trust exhaust outlets and the cockpit;
- Windows on the canopy are provided separately to be printed with the transparent filament for you to access the highly-detailed cockpit;
- The canopy can open by sliding towards the nose cone;
- Made with a stand to resemble the Battlestar Galactica logo;
- All parts are divided in such a way that you will print them with the smallest number of support structures.

DLP/SLA/SLS 1.0 version features:
- Contains 14 parts;
- A printed model is 95 mm tall, 72 mm wide, 136 mm deep;
- Made with a stand to resemble the Battlestar Galactica logo;
- The canopy can open by sliding towards the nose cone for you to access the highly-detailed cockpit;
- All parts are divided in such a way to fit the build plates and to ensure that support structures are generated where needed.


- STL files of Viper MK II​​​​ Model for 3D printing which consist of 49 parts;
- 2 versions of files for this model for FFF/FDM and DLP/SLA/SLS printers;
- High-poly detailed model of Viper MK II​​​​​​;
Assembly Manual for FFF/FDM 1.0 and DLP/SLA/SLS 1.0 versions in PDF format;
- Detailed settings that we provide as a recommendation for Cura , Simplify3D and Slic3r for the best print;
