A Long Time Ago, In A Theatre Far, Far Away...


Recommended Posts

I saw the most amazing film, and the rest is history. Han shot first, Vader was pure evil and there was enough left unexplained that you could imagine yourself in that world for hours.

This post will be a placeholder while I wait for the decals to be delivered because for reasons best known to themselves, Bandai only supplied stickers for the smaller kits and that quite simply won't do. Fortunately, there's a seller on evil-bay who does all sorts of decals so instead of another boring Red Five and Gold Leader, my ships will belong to Blue Squadron.

Gotta love Bandai!

A first coat of the base colour on the Rebel ships. They get Tamiya X 80 Royal Light Grey, which is just about perfect.

The Y wing has always been my favourite of the Star Wars ships.

But like the Spitfire, the X wing got all the publicity

The Johnny-come-lately U wing is a bit of a hybrid. It's a lot like a Star Wars Mi-24. I'm still undecided whether I like it or not. The TIE Striker on the second frame will get its own appearance in another installment.

A little detailing on the X wing. NATO black with graphite powder to give it that oily metal sheen. The R2 is going to need some silver.

The Y wing is subassemblies now. I think that I've duplicated the scene where Gold Leader explodes

It's going to look soooo good after the black wash and drybrushing. After that, all the details will come from the decals.

Well this is annoying. The patch cable for my camera appears to have broken; I can't transfer images to the computer now. This means that updates will stop until the new patch cable is delivered.

I'll build, and take pictures along the way, and then post them all at once so it appears like I build at warp speed.
