Been into vipers for 13 years since I was 9. I don't own a Viper, but hopefully soon. I have a collection a of 1:18, 1:24 ...etc models. I collected a bunch and kind of lost interest by 2002 and around 2008 I slowly got back into it and the other day decided to combine a Bburago 1:24 RT and a GTS and make a GEN 2 1998-99 RT.
The way I'm approaching this is I will need the finished model to have the rear end on a GEN1, the front end/hood of a GEN2 and covered side pipe with a rear exhaust.
Disasemble models, cut GEN1 grill/hood off, attatch GTS grill/hood to GEN1 frame.
Fill GEN1 side pipes in with GTS bottom side sills.
Install GTS inner door panels onto RT doors.
Paint interior semi-gloss black with soft flexable latex paint.
Strip paint off body, re-paint body gloss red.
Add proper decals, install GTS wheels...FINISHED
-Hood will say ViperGTS, when it should say ViperRT/10
-Engine will have GEN1 intake design
Overall it will be a legit model and 1 of a kind.
