    So I was looking at this ship and I asked my six year old son how I should paint it, and without a moment's hesitation, he said: BATWING.
    Roger that.

    TIE Adv Prototype.  This guy was a blast to paint and fun to play so I'm definitely getting at least one more.



     
    TIE Interceptors.  The basic Interceptor is just done in the same scheme as the basic TIE.  For the Royal Guard TIE, I decided to leave the original red, paint in white panels and gold canopy around it, and then add some grey and gold embellishments.  The whole thing works much better than I was expecting, I'm really pleased with it.

    Start off with some rebels.  First up, various small fighters.  The scheme on these guys was a bit of an experiment as some of the fighters would be partial repaints and some would be full, so I had to adjust my style to make both work.  I was aiming for something that looked like a fleet but nowhere near as consistent as the Imperials.  Also, grungy.
    (Edit: replacing a bunch of my pictures because photobucket can go die in a fire ...)

    Some more B-wings and the K-Wing.  The K-wing was a mod, to remove the lower sub-wings and add some groovy fins.

    Hi all!
    I'm happy to be closing a few projects. Pictures below
    Comments and advice are most welcome
    As you can read above, I started painting in August, and I am super happy with my progression.
    It is largely being facilitated by the forum members and community at large for ideas, suggestions, tutorials.
    So, to the most experienced of you out there, keep up the good work! That's great inspiration for learners !  
     
    Hot Rod Rebels
    My new favorites Entirely airbrushed (canopy included), besides the wash. Pretty cool use of masking fluid / tape
    Lesson learned: dare!  

     

     

     
     
    Jurassic Park Rebels
    Lesson learned: Got my new airbrush and got excited, but poor execution through thick paint, low definition and too many ships at once. But good practice!

     

     
     

     

     
     
    Soviet X-Wings
    Lesson learned: Vallejo Soviet colors are very dark! I will focus on bright themes onward, as I want the ships to have a sharp footprint on the gaming table  Good practice and use of white tack for camo.

     
     
    Silver Tie Interceptor
    Lesson learned: Humble project, tried to do a Hot Rod and got cold feet. Will still be a good match with my Golden Imperial Squad (see above)

    Some of the CMS Scum have been finished- the M3-A, HWK, and Quadjumper. Cockpits will be done the same as the Kimogila above, but all at once with the remainder of the CMS stuff. Next are my final, for now, CMS ships; Scurrg bomber and Jumpmaster, which are taking more time than originally planned. Also, a green, freelancer Kimogila. Thanks for looking!

     
    After the Scurrg, Jumpmaster, and Kimogila, I'm out of ships to paint... Any ideas of a fun ship to paint?

    E-Wing Variants
    I know FFG did well matching the E-Wing to its first appearance in the Dark Empire comic book series...but these are so much sleeker... 
    (From the Alien Luxury Miniatures shop on Shapeways)
    Red for Rogue Squadron, Blue for Blue Squadron, and Green for Corran Horn.

    V-4X-D Ski-Speeders from the Battle of Crait
    Ready and anxious to fly in our group's custom campaign format - with modified mini-pegs for better height representation.

    don't hate me,
    but I made a kitbashed alt for Talonbane Cobra out of a plane I found at the Dollar Tree. (Yeah, mounts on a base and everything)
     
    (and in  my head I've been theorizing an x-wing style game centered around that theme entirely  )

    Hi Again
    It was a long time I didn’t post anything else, I had made Hammerhead corvette as well as other ships (like the YT-1000) and other ships 
    This time I had use more the imagination (and free will) and made a new epic ship!
    Something like a carrier or cargo haul, not affiliated to any group ( I prefer it belongs to free traders guild) for this new project I have some inspiration based on the big trandoshans ships seen on the clone wars series as well as the rebel transport as you can see.
    during the project I made several pictures (here below attached) to see how it evolves during the process, now I have to start painting it.
    I would be glad to hear any sugerence or recommendation...
     

     that’s the beginning, I used a pair of little bottles for the matrix as well as some plastic films and soft wood.
    the plates has been done this time making a blueprint over a plastic film cutting them an adding separately to the main structure, something like a puzzle or jigsaw...
     

     
    here is a detail of the cockpit... 
     

     
    the lower part of the kit was more about the same, the details over the ship has been done adding small plastic parts an filaments and wires, in order to make the piping...
     

    then I started to make more details on the frontal area...
     

     

     
    Here you can see a good reference of size (with the Y wing, not with the pacifier ? )
    ...Then I started with impulsion units and several round of details...

     
    I added a grey priming coat, so you can see better the details and ease the painting process...




     
    I have more pictures
     
    Hope you like it, if you have many questions please contact me...

    And then, since I was in a Firespray mood, I painted another one, to match my Z's because I like that scheme.

    Finally done.  This thing took forever.  I kinda want a new 2.0 VCX100 kit so it can ship with both shuttles that actually dock, Lando's Falcon style, but OTOH, God be merciful, I don't want to paint one of these again.



     
    Shot where you can see the modified flight stand.  I put magnets in on the two supporting tines, together with the normal large-base connector this gives you a really solid base for the thing.

     
    Matching shuttle.

     
    Whole thing plus Phoenix Squadron escorts.

    Up for today, a U-Wing repaint:
    Decided to give my original U-Wing a paintjob to match the X-Wing and E-Wing.  I think it looks good on the space Huey.  
     
    And all three together:
    Now if I could just make a list of these three actually be competitive!

    And I'm back!  Not necessarily a good thing, but it is what it is.  Couple quick repaints for today:

    First up is a repaint of the old, fixed-wing X-Wing, in a camo pattern to match my E-Wing.  Not sure why, but I really like how this looks, especially along with the E.
     
    Next up is an even simpler repaint, basically giving a B-Wing a Blue Squadron paint job.

    Gotten it back together and cleaned up. Still got some details to paint before sealing and weathering. Decided to re-paint the Shuttle while waiting on paint to dry on the TIE so, now the Defender has a support ship.
