The top picture is the original glossy for the Viper Zgrass prototype used for the ARCADIAN, 5, no. 12 (October 24, 1983): 174. Since it's the original, the quality is much higher than what appeared in the newsletter. A similar, second version of the hardware (which didn't appear in the newsletter) was found in the Bob Fabris Collection.

For archiving purposes, a lossless, TIFF version of one of these pictures is available.
