This model is frakkin awesome! QMx has done it again with its offer of a Battlestar Galactica Viper Mark II from the latest series. The 1:18 scale filming-quality miniature is being offered in three editions: Adama Edition, Starbuck Edition and Fleet Edition. The limit has been set for 500 replicas per edition.
The QMx Viper Mark II Artisan Replica boasts a cockpit full of hand-cut details, including gauges, data screens, throttle, ejection seat, and seat belts with fabric belts and metalized buckles. It also boasts an active, working DRADIS – a 9/16” OLED (organic light-emitting diode) video display of the remote sensing system in action, displaying the actual DRADIS video used in Battlestar Galactica. The canopy can be opened for an optimal view of the cockpit and this first-ever digital model effect.
There will be a limited number of Viper Mark IIArtisan Replicas at 1,500 ships total: that's just 500 for each edition. Get your Viper Mark II for only $1,499.95.

The crew at Splitscreen Studios will be offering us a chance to ride on the backs of triceratops, sauropods, and other dinosaurs this Summer, when it releases 'Dino Storm', a free browser based MMO.
Think spaghetti Western meets sci-fi, and you get the idea for this game. You play the role of a Ranger, with the task of hunting down varmints who are looting, setting fire to, and generally making life miserable for the residents of DinoVille. You do this by riding dinosaurs instead of horses, and teamwork will be a big part of the game.
Of course, the game won't be completely free, with Splitscreen offering optional premium content for real cash. That way you can trick out your dino steed with lasers and other weapons. Sounds a bit like the old 'DinoRiders' cartoon from the 80's, with a Western feel. Check out their website at www.dinostorm.com
