Ribbing the Viper

Using the main hull as a main body to hang on all the other parts is all fine and well, but that would still mean the hull itself would be a hollow shell.

All papercraft models are mostly hollow of course, but because paper has some natural tension in it, it would make the nose of the Viper become round, while it really needs to be more oval shaped.

A pretty common solution for this in papercraft airplanes is to use some internal bracing made from cardboard (just like in the real thing actually, although then the bracing is not made from cardboard...)

I'm sure it will work on papercraft space superiority fighters too. ;o)
