Finished just over a week ago and I'm finally getting around to getting some decent pictures up. Both of these Bandai kits fit like a dream and I've barely used any glue on either. No need really! I went Rogue One, Blue Squadron look on the X wing, but not going for movie accuracy. Paints are all Model Master. I'll probably build a different base as the Death Star look, it's not right. BB-8, I sprayed an orange pearl on all of the orange parts, which made it darker than it should be, and also sprayed aluminum on the silver. The white is the bare plastic, with Flory Model wash to highlight the small fasteners and panels. Comments are always welcome. I'm not great at weathering and working on it more and more (Takom King Tiger on the bench, it REQUIRES weathering!). Thanks all!
Hi everyone After completing the Enterprise C (okay, during final completion) I started on this 1/72 X Wing kit. Compared to the AMT/Ertl Enterprise, this thing is a dream. Everything fit's perfectly, no gaps and glue really isn't need.....everything fits that tight. I've mostly finished the cockpit, though the plumbing needs more detail and the pilots seat needs weathering....and a pilot. I haven't painted figures since I built models in back when I was 10 (so, 25+ years ago) so I'm not really thrilled about that. But, I have made a good start on the wings. I've gone for a similar scheme to the Blue squadron from Rogue One, though I'm sure it won't be an exact match. I've been painting each panel one at a time, to hopefully make them look...well, like panels. More to come as progress is made. Feel free to comment. Cockpit area.....small. I'm used to 1/48 or 1/32 aircraft, so this is TINY to me. Wings. I tried to use Micro Mask to obtain chipping results, but after spraying a light coat of Floquil UP Armour Yellow, the stuff wouldn't rub off. Maybe the lacquer paint ate into it? Guesses? Chipping with pencils for now; first time I've tried this, I suppose it looks okay.
