Awesome work in here MacrossVF1! 

I did a quick look through the thread, but couldn't find this info. Can you tell me what color paints you used in your Admiral Zaarin repaints?

As usual it's been a long time since I last posted anything. I suppose the projects I do nowadays are getting more and more time consuming which means less posts as well as several that are not Star Wars related so I can't really post it here.

Anyway I'm back with another Wayfarer. Enjoy!

Here's a forgotten project. Now I have to preface this by making **** sure that everyone knows the following; I did NOT build/mod the engines and middle mounted cockpit. Those were already there when I was asked to work on the model. Unfortunately I don't know who did the initial work.

My task was to further mod the ship and repaint it. The intent was to build a ship with a sleek appearance, and give the impression of a craft capable of high speed. To that end, many details were removed, particularly along the middle/'waist' of the ship. The paint job might look like it was inspired by the Solo-movie but it was actually decided upon before the movie was a thing.

The rest of the outer structure has been added and details are starting to appear. You might notice that the gun barrels are broken. This is almost deliberate as the **** things break with almost ridiculous ease. When the first one inevitably snapped, I removed all the others and will replace them with better ones later.

Has anyone asked to you build some of Fractalsponge's smaller Imperial ships? I saw some pics on Pinterest of the Fulgor and Vigil and thought "hey, that looks like his work...."

No requests so far, though I suspect I should be happy about that. Any model Fractalsponge produce is freakishly well detailed and would likely be a nightmare to do justice.

Why didn’t you put far star in aurebesh? 

Simply because it would have been a headache. I found the logo online and used Photoshop to separate it into two waterslide decals. One for the star and circle pattern and another for the text. With the first decal applied I had to manually paint in the colours since I don't have a colour printer. Then I could apply the second decal, the text, on top of the first one.

So you can see, the procedure was already complex to begin with, I didn't want the extra hassle of doing Aurebesh as well. Also, the logo is supposed to be on the other side of the bridge, but since there are details in the way it had to be moved.

that’s a hard job, anyway I Had prepared several decals and pinup girls for this purpose, I think doing that won’t be a big problem, before I put the decal (as I do not have a trully decal printer what I do is make two decals of the design I like to make I deploy the first one and dry then with a Hair dryer, so this one is hard attached to the surface, second I cover it with a slightly core of white ( quite acuous one) and then pt the secon decal over it, for this the design should be more vivid and won’t loose color, for making it also more colorful what I do is apply again the hair dryer.

The process is not so hard and get very good results as you can see here on a Pez Mani on my hammerhead corvette
