And here I go nuts looking at the details on the Falcon instead of the farely sparce illustration in the book and start coverring the thing in gribbly detail.

this has to be some of the finest detail work, very nice, thank you.

 

I feel inspired to finish work on Foxcatch.

Thank you for all the positive comments :) now I have to decide how to paint her. I'm leaning towards making her look like Ebon Hawk from KOTOR I always liked that ship.

That's all kinds of awesome! Wish there was an area off the FFG forums that was just for cutomiziers.

Brilliant stuff, I have the Haynes guide to the Death Star, but seeing this I really need me to get the YT 1300 issue as well!

It does look splendid, I cant say enough about it. I only hope my variant of this comes out decent.. but there is a lot of inspiration here.

Primer has been applied and I'm deciding on colours and I'm also working on a 3rd Firespray.

Hmm good question. It's the Micromachines Action Fleet one so the scale was always whatever fit inside the box. It does look nice next to the rest of the ships. In proper scale it should be about 80% as big as the Blockade Runner so much much bigger than this. I'm kinda tempted to convert it a bit and repaint it, maybe put a Falcon style cockpit on the very front like this

http://mystery369.de...vette-279189127

but it's also my favourite prequel ship so I don't really want to mess with it. I've seen them used on some blogs as an excellent stand in for the shuttle in the defend the shuttle mission.

Good God, you're great at hull details. I kinda like the Falcon prow without the window (as in the initial pic) but this looks great too, like a smaller Arquitens-class cousin.

Adding the viewport up front reminds me a lot of The Ebon Hawk. It's a very good would-be-homage to that ship, if it were one.

Seriously, this is amazing.

I'm a big fan of Corellian ships too.  I was wondering if it was the 1:350 scale model.  I'd like to see someone table that and post pics. 

 

Did you see the voidrunner?  I have two.  It comes with a communications dish, so I put both dishes on one ship to spice things up. 

 

I've also used this for the shuttle mission.  The base is exactly the same as that which comes in the core set.  That scenario comes to life with an actual ship to shoot at!

You mean this one?

http://starshipmodel...radiant-vii.cfm

Oh I would dearly love to have that model but she's more than a tad out of my budget at the moment. Same for the numerous Shapeways ships I'd like to get but their shipping to Australia pretty much doubles their cost :(

More progress, you may be able to pick the inspiration ;)

I went with the same blue glow as my other Falcons but I'm a little unsure if maybe I should have gone a firey orange instead. May re airbrush them after the rest of the ship is done, though that sill probably be tricky getting under the back deck.

I'm unsure about the turret hub bit, I think I'll paint the entire round bit red. So far the top of the bow and the rear deck have also been drybrushed a bit to give a very weathered and faded look much like the streaky painted look from the Clone Wars, will do the same to the rest of the red before adding lots of panel variation and all the darklining the panels.
