Sweet mod bros....What is the grey ship that looks like an outer rim freighter ?

Just spent like an hour or so replacing the old links on this thread from photobucket which keeps running out of bandwidth with flickr ones so  thought I'd post some more finished photos as well on my space mat.

Very nicely done sir. I wish I had to courage to chop up my Falcon but it also dawned on me that 3 of the 4 pilots for the ship are actually flying the Flacon anyway =p Also doesn't help that I've been sticking with Imperials.

I did find a pic of a scan from a book detailing the different configurations of YT-1300s including one that you seldom see, the cockpit being on the other side of the ship altogether. Usually conversions take it off and put it in the middle.

First off I have to say that I'm flabbergasted at the quality of this conversion. Kudos to you Rob Jedi.

 

As someone who loves running YT-1300's I'd love to be able to make them look different but one thing has always stopped me. I have absolutely no idea how to do the positive detailing on the scratchbuilt plasticard panels.

 

I can grasp the idea of scraping panel lines - I'd call this negative detailing as you are taking material away. But for want of a better phrase the positive detailing - adding material - you do is simply awesome! In particular the perfectly done external cabling is where I struggle to know how you do it?

 

Do you have any advice?

It's just thin Evergreen plastic rod bent to fit the surface and then cut to fit. As well as bits of plastic sheet cut into small rectangles and glued on to break up the flatness.

That's my Imperial Freighter I did up from a Gundam kit, here's the thread: http://community.fan...ted-model-kit/

Mr. Robjedi: outstanding work! Are planning to post it on your blog?
 

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.


Oneway, what company are you talking about? are they doing extra details for the YT-1300?
do what you must. the rest will follow.

Beautiful work!  All those tiny "greeble" details really bring it to life.  I shudder at the idea of chopping up a proper FFG Falcon myself, but it looks like you've really got the skills to justify it.  :)

Very well done.

I have been working on a similar conversion, scouring the web I have found yours is the only other one.

I like how you built onto the original center piece, I have cut mine out entirely .

I try to reuse bits I cut off, after seeing yours I feel scratch building the little bits would be better.

Cheers.

This may seem like pointless repetition but that is one awesome conversion, love the detail on the panels and great paint job.

You don't see allot of conversions with the pre-painted models but I got to say impressive.


You can always start another round if you lost the last one.
