FineMolds 1:72 TIE Fighter

Recommended Posts

This will be my first build for the GB. Been wanting to build my Star Wars kits in my stash for a while and this will be a nice break from my usual topic since a decade ago.

I never built any Finemolds kits but I hear they are pretty nice!

hadn't done much work as I have been working on a 1:48 corsair, but with that out of way, it's full speed ahead with the TIE fighter.

pilot figure has been painted.

unfortunately, the decals started breaking up on me so I had to spray gloss on them.

I've always wanted a Tie pilot flight suit. My favorite Imperial suited character. Very nice.

I have heard about this painting method with the Air Superiority Blue and Neutral Gray but have not tried it myself so I am interested to see how it turns out.

Very nice job, Ben!

Care to explain the method of painting with air superiority blue and neutral grey?

ah I see... I thought you had to cover the base coat with dilluted neutral grey or something... the end result reminds me of Dr. Ghost Grey or even Medium Grey...
