[Paintjob] Flying under new colours

Recommended Posts

Awesome work fella. For me, these are up there with some of the best re-paints on this here forum.... and the web-o-sphere...  :)

 

Lots of excellent paint techniques on display and those blue canopies... fresh!

 

Cheers.

Very good! Those blue canopies pop out nicely. The 'industrial' look on the HWK suits it well.

Now then let's give you some honest critique as well. It seems that you have done sponge chipping on some of the models. While this is a great way of adding nice little chips and scratches, in this case they might be a bit too small as I almost have to strain myself to see them.

Secondly I see several small rust streaks that runs along the length of the ships. They are well executed but they would look better if they run down, towards any potential gravity source. Rust doesn't accumulate and spread in that manner, it is such a slow process that it just doesn't happen due to the airflow over the fighter. Dirt and grime streaks are fine but not rust.

Now don't take this the wrong way, the models are very well painted, I just want to help you improve your techniques.

Ok. Now I've spotted the cheeky little Ace (or Queen?) of Club's playing card on the A-Wing and a repeat of the Club symbol on the B-Wing...

 

Nice  ;)

 

Additionally, there appears to be a very small circle symbol on the nose of the A-Wing and the right flank (under the cockpit) of the HWK - What's this bud?

 

Ps. considering the scale, that's a cool looking R2D2.

...but Imperials are the good guys. :)

We ain't supporting human flesh eating Ewoks. :D

 

Oh, come on. We eat calamari. Let them eat what they want, just don't go if they ask to have you for dinner.

 

Remember, fish are friends, not food.

Thanks for all the kind replies everyone, didn't expect that good a reaction! :P

 

I have a couple more ships finished, a bit of reinforcement for the Imperials in the form of the Aces. Again, slightly altered colouration but I like to add my own touch to the models.

I've finished all the ships I currently have at the moment so I'm not sure what to do next, I was thinking maybe a Z95 since I can't find a Falcon! Any thoughts on what I should go for?

 

Cheers

If you're looking to do more repaints.. I have a half dozen squints and TIEs I could use painted similarly.. lol.. great work on these... I really like what you did with the Royal Guard, and the subtle detailing on the 181st is really nice.

I just painted a Phantom in red and am trying to decide the highlights and detailing I want to try on it...

Something a little different this time, I picked up a Z-95 a few days ago but I couldn't decide on a paint scheme. I also wanted to have some nice terrain, possibly a space station so I came up with these!

 

A selection of salvaged Z's being repaired for use by the scum and villainy of the universe.

I'm also planning on putting together a small space station using the landing pads and some other random stuff, here's a closer look at them.

And a better look at the damaged Z's, some in better shape than others!

As always C+C greatly appreciated.

Now those are friggin' awesome! I've used wires before so I know how damned fiddly and hard to work with they can be. At this size, the work you've done becomes even more impressive! Everyone here should bow their head and worship your indescribable painting skills! :)
