A few more ships. I think this is the fifth Kath Scarlet I've painted and Firesprays in general does remain a very popular ship. The C-roc however is new to me and it's been painted to resemble the great fat slug himself.

Would be hilarious if someone modded this guy to open up the mouth at the front and have the Hutt tongue come out the front.

I'm curious which colors you used on this Firespray. Also with the red is that just slowly building up on the grays or did you mask off and paint that on the primer/base? Is that just the "stock" paint on the cockpit glass?

Considering the shape of the C-Roc, that shouldn't be terribly hard to do actually. Most certainly a good idea that I hope someone picks up.

The blue is a mix of four colours, but I've unfortunately misplaced my notes. As for the red, I started by priming the model white, then painting the front red. I then masked off  the stripe and painted the blue. These steps where all done with an airbrush. Unfortunately the red came out too bright so I had to paint is darker by hand. As for the canopy, it has actually been painted so it's not the stock colour, though admittedly it's still just a basic black, with a few layers of gloss varnish on top.

"Gray Leader standing by."

- Horton Salm at the Battle of Endor Six ships in total, five ships use the 1.0 Y-wing model, while the squad lead use a 2.0 model to make it easier to distinguish. As a fun little detail, all the astromechs have been painted slightly different from each other.

Here's a bit of naughty filth for you, the Andrasta.  In all honesty, there was a bit of communication failure this time. I never considered that there are two versions of the Twi'lek pin up, the original from the X-wing Alliance PC game from 1999 and the newer card art from the miniature game. In the end I ended up with a hybridized version of the two.

Beautiful! I have an Andrasta primed and ready to paint, haven't quite gotten to it yet. I will definitely be using yours as inspiration! 

Pro tip, notice the raised panel that the pin up mostly covers (especially the top half). That particular panel is normally full of tiny details and smaller panels and to make it much easier to paint the twi'lek, remove and flatten most, preferably all details from it.

Oh yes, I see it! Great call. I will definitely do that. Thank you!

Here's the answer to the question that no one has ever asked: How would a Sith infiltrator look if it had the same pattern/scheme as the Hyena Bomber'?

Superb paintjob again! 👍

Btw. CIS is the only faction that I don't have, but IF I did I would probably do a conversion of a Infiltrator simply by turning it upside down and replacing the peg position with somekind of turret/gun. I think that this ship looks particularly cool beneath. 🤔

Considering the ship is rather symmetrical, that's a surprisingly viable idea. It's certainly not something I personally would do but I can see and understand how it could be done.

Go on, do it! What's the worst that could happen? 🙂

Indeed, but the Separatists are the only faction that I don’t (currently) have... 🤔

That is one slick paint job.  Would it be possible to get a side shot so we can see the detail in yellow clearer?  😉

Unfortunately no. I did take such a photo but for some reason it turned out blurry as heck and I discovered it way after I had taken the photos and put away my equipment. And I don't have the ship available any longer, it has been packed in a box and is on its way to the commissioner.

*Edit* No wait I actually do have one picture though it was taken during the middle of painting so it does not fully represent the final model.
