    What am I doing?  I didn't even like the Clone Wars.

    Just the one.  It was fun to paint, though, I'm going to get another sooner or later.

    My take on the Banshee. I went marginally off-model with the markings because I'm not good at freehanding and because the Lancer on Rebels doesn't have quite the same structure as the original model planned for Clone Wars.
    I'm still learning a lot -- mostly about how poorly acrylic washes behave on flat panels and how bad I still am at fine details. I'll probably dab on one or two more minor color details later, and weather another panel or two to better even things out. A ship this big begs for detailing.
    I AM happy with the colors. This particular ship was a good exercise in getting the right shades and coolness of grays -- I had to mix all these colors to get what I needed.

    The 2.0 announcement has pretty much killed my desire to play 1.0 until the new hotness gets here and fixes everything, but I'm working on getting my existing collection painted and expanding it a bit where I have fewer ships of a type than what will come in the conversion packs.  I'm also splitting my painting time with Legion, which is not making things go faster. 
    Finished up my Kimogila today.  This guy never did see 1.0 table time for me, and likely won't now.

    Hey, it's been a while.  Some new stuff.
     
    A-Wing number 4:


     
    All four of 'em.  I had to switch the paint I was using for the purple, and it's *slightly* different, but nowhere near as much as it looks here, which is strange.

     
    Next up, TIE Phantom.  I stuck with the white panels and gold canopy of the rest of my Imperials, but switched out the purple for black, using purple accents on the cloaking generator to tie it in with the rest of the fleet.  Sadly this makes it look like a First Order wannabe, but you know, whatcha gonna do.

    Finished the RZ-2 A-Wing component of my Rainbow Squadron. (Voltron, Power Rangers, etc. comments unnecessary). I'm ~30% through my Pink Pig, a pink MG-100. The T-70 is going to be teal, orange, or purple -- haven't decided yet.

    #17-21 Finally! Feel prepared enough to take on my swarm. This is just about putting together a team of 5 TIEs with numbering and some decals for details   1. So this is the first time I'm taking on multiple ships of the same treatment so I have my assembly line setup. Tackling each ship a stage at a time. It did get a bit tedious and take a lot longer than i expected but then I remind myself its a x5 factor. 2. I use Mr Hobby's Mr Finishing Surfacer 1500 instead of Citadel. It has a much finer finish. My first few rebels was done with Citadel and I often ran afoul of frosting because of the humidity in Singapore. Since switching it seems much better. Also, white because I figured it's easier to paint black panels instead of trying to do white frames over a black primer. I think I have figured out the level of thinning as well as 2 coats of black with a bit of touch up was enough. 3. I used the Vallejo masking fluid again for the windows before priming, but a bit of the edge came up or was masked so still had to touch up the edge and ended up painting the frames white anyway. 4. Ulthuan Grey gave a nice 'off white' base so that the white scar pops a bit more 5. Stripes were freehand, too small for tape. a good brush makes a big difference here but still not as consistent in the width as i wanted. 6. Decals! First time with these. I bought a few Gunpla sheets from a hobby store that had the numbering i wanted. So the process is:
    a) cut out and dunk in water for 3mins.
    b) Brush on Mr. Mark Softer on the model.
    c) use tweezers to remove the decal paper and blot off excess water from the back.
    d) slide of the decal using a soft blunt tool (mine is the cut end of a paperish cotton bud).
    e) position the decal, i even had to move one using a knife when i realised i put in the wrong location but the Mr. Mark Softer gives you a bit of time to play with it.
    f) Use a cotton bud to carefully press the decal into place and soak up excess fluids g) carefully brush Mr. Mark Setter to 'fix' the decal and melt it on to the plastic 7. I went over some of the white parts with watered down nuln oil to bring out the definition but I might have overdone it more than i wanted. They ended up looking dirtier than they should be. 8. I wanted these to have that stormtrooper level gloss on the major white parts so went over it with Aarcoat but not really getting the right type of shine.   White Mr Hobby Primer Ulthuan Grey for the white parts base Abaddon Black for all the panels White Scar for highlighting Mephiston Red for the designation stripes Wild Rider Red for the Twin Ion Engines Nuln Oil watered down and Tamiya Panel Liner And Aardcoat for that stormtrooper gloss
