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.

IMG_6698_zpsbd9089b1.jpgI'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.

 

I love this. More specifically, I'd love to embed LED's in it. Not sure about what the flaring does to that upper deck, but overall you've made it look like a new ship. Fantastic work!

OK I think she's done. After some drybrushing over the red areas I thinned down some ArmyPainter Dark Tone with acryllic extender and washed the whole ship then wiped off as many big panels as I could to leave the shading. That's why it's still shiny in some areas like the access pits, I really hope that stuff actually dries eventually and hpefully not shiny. Then lots of rust streaks and strong tone streaks then cleaning up the occasional panel that had gotten too dark before adding paint chips to the red and some grey worn down to metal chipped areas. She's a touch darker than my other two YTs but I'm pretty happy with the result. I may have to add some more stains to the regular Falcon. So anyone got a good name for her? I kinda like Red Tail but I'm open to better suggestions.

"Awesome" is usually my best comment. But it looks even better!

 

So whatever is better than "awesome", that's how it looks now.

Beautiful!

 

No other words...

 

Red Tail seems like a fine name.

can I send you the pitiful dregs of my bad attempt and let you have fun with it.. lol.. Looks fantastic, I just ordered some parts to help mine along the way. I had to tear out some of what I had done as it was looking odd, then I realized the two sides of the bottom were different lengths.. lol.. so start from scratch on the bottom. 

 

The new parts should help though, that Japanese company is really inexpensive, dropped just under 20 bucks for parts there.. should get me engine parts and a part to extend the cockpit section and a few bits to work on the hull. 

 

Awesome work here though, I really enjoyed following this one, and I definitely got some inspiration on how to do a few things. 

 

I just thought about a name.. and after looking at it again, it kinda looks like a Grouse.. if you kept with the naming style of the Millennium Falcon.. how about the Decadent Grouse... the Decadent part being the time part.. decade.. decadent.. hahaha.. maybe not.. haha..

Stunning.

I'd suggest Big Red as a name, it reminds me of a big robot out of an old comic series in C&VG or Zzap!64 magazine.

Oh wow I remember that robot comic in C&VG was very 2000AD in style. I always loved the inkwork on it. Think the artists name was Paris something. Now I feel the need to google it.

 

Oneway have you got any photos of your ship? I can give pointers if I see it.

Nothing as is, I know what I did wrong, it's just getting back to it and hammering it out .. so to speak.. lol.. I just need to recut some plastic and get it back together, make sure my sides are even.. I know when I finally get it together I can paint it up and hide any issues.. lol.. 

 

thanks though, I appreciate the offer, I just need to take some time with it and not rush it..

My advice is follow the way TRamsey did his Gozantis: Cut the sides together so that they match exactly. Also something I did was cut a groove along the side of the middle bit with a razor saw through the surface detail and curve of the hull so you have a straight groove to put the the new wall against. Much easier than trying to cut the bottom curved to match the hull. 

 

Oh and a I cut a bit out of the front of the madibles so there was a touch more room for the new section. I cut along the thick straight bit.

I also cut the mandibles a little, that helped, but cutting the grove in the hull that is brilliant.. I'll have to give that a go, probably strengthens that as well. awesome tips, thanks.

I found that Jerry Paris comic, it was called Bug Hunters. Big Red was the right name for the robot too.

And, of course, The Big Red One is a WW2 movie starring Mark Hamill. 

 

I'll be stuck at work reading that comic now of course.

Inspiring work, the extra detailing really paid off! Red tail sounds good, I suggest Red Comet (or Red Mist...).

The army painter stuff will dry eventually, but it usually takes like a week for me. It will dry shiny though, so you might want to plan on hitting it with a matte sealer somewhere down the line.

Looks incredible. Truly excellent work.

Thanks, Troy

I used the little acrylic bottle stuff not the big can of dip. it dries matt.
