Kimogila, it's really fugly out of the box. Again, the Hutt scheme absolutely not doing the model a favour. I like it's aggressive lines, they speak raw brutality. I however disliked a bit the front part. Also, why having such a large roof over the cockpit without any apparent function? So taking to the scalpel and some putty/fimo:

Another random pic. Fun scenario for children, but also to train own movement and one's own and enemy firing arcs. All the Tie cardboard inlays scattered randomly about are defense satellites. The one with most destroyed satellites wins.

Satellite: PS 8, 3 red dice, 0 green dice, 3 Hull, 0 shields. No movement. Actions: Focus or Rotate 90deg. Attacking the nearest target, rotating toward the locking ship, if someone target locks the respective satellite.

Allow attacking each other according to taste.

After playing we came to the conclusion that the satellites should get at least 1 green, or more hull. Maybe also more attack power.

Can you get a close up shot of the ARC & HWK please? Those colors intrigue me.

The HWK is my bird of prey, inclusive WW1 style fin writing. It's on the first page of the thread :)

 

The Arc170 is one of two I own. It's still a WIP, going for a really ff*-ed-up look. Bleached out paints, exchanged panels etc.

It's unfinished, because I am not really content with how it turned out. Guns & astromech e.g. totally untreated so far. The other white panels are however with intent, as they were to get nose & wing arts. Still totally undecided if I am going to strip it, or continue (it has been on the backburner now fo about half a year....).

The other one is in the works, hopefully leading to a better result, learning from that one.

Arc number 1 is almost clear, decided to keep the look above. Pics for that one to follow.

2nd Arc170 is finished. Slightly less f*'d up look than the other one. Still weathered, and tried sponge technique, going however, for a "little bit better maintained appearance" than the hunk of junk above.

Bath in the wingspan glory :)

Cool!

Do you have a specific pilot in mind for each paint job on the ARCs?

I've been flying Norra lately and I think she deserves her own custom painted ARC. I just have to figure out what that would bee.

Paint her like a Y-Wing!

The hunk'o'junk is intended for the lower PS boys, the wasp one for the lovely ladies with the high PS.

I also painted the astro on the purple one slightly as R3-A2, but only implied, not really true to original. As then one can imagine other astros as well. On the wasp one, the astro implies towards targeting astromech, but also rather loose.

I'd love to buy 2 more Arcs, to have one for each pilot, also e.g. paint up one with R2D2, one with e.g. flight assist.

For Braylen in his mostly stress role, I imagine red, something along this:

And the last one, either some kind of blue, or military green, maybe camo. However, Thane and Shara are not that good, would be seldomly flown.

So far I could not convince myself to invest even more in the game. But maybe when I see Arcs on offer....you know mistakes have been made before :)

 

far too many actually!

Funnily enough, that's exactly what I did for my Braylen repaint!

I hope the ARC goes on sale in your area soon - I'd love to see what that scheme looks like when a skilled painter does it! Your yellow ARC is truly inspiring.

So, the first Arc170 -  as written above i finally decided to keep the paint scheme. Not really eager to do the hassle of stripping, priming again,....

Anyway, a real frustbucket, having participated in a lot of heat. Desperately needing not only some new paintshop, but also more spare parts.

 

Aft

I have no airbrush for the engines, so paintbrush had to do.

As our FLGS is selling out 1st edition very cheap now, I finally got me one of these and performed some "surgery" work:

Cannon tip needs to be sanded down a bit, to correct for FFG's mold line on it.

Not sure yet how to paint that one.

Also still waiting for 2nd ed, and if the E-wing is fun there (discussions pointing towards it still being overcosted), but I am surely flying it at least at home with the children.

 

Another project, first base paint, guess what that is going to be :)

One of the kids bought a YT2400.

I made it a rotating "bowtie"-firing-arc:

Unfortunately no work-in-progress-pics.

But I carefully twisted the cannons off, drilled a hole straight through the hull.

I put a wooden axle in, glued the cannons on again, 180deg offset of each other - voila, rotating indicator.
