My Custom Painted Super Star Destroyer

Recommended Posts

I took model master one bottle gun metal and one bottle steel mixed together. Sprayed the hull. The dark center and recessed bays are gunmetal 2:1 with flat black.  It gives the more metal look. I hand painted the engines citadel mephistone red. I disassembled the model completely and put it back together. Going to order some new republic stencils and make it a rebel. After dry took testors dulcote and sprayed it.

Sorry to be bringing up an old thread, but do you thin with some painstakingly good taping, this paint job could be recreated without complete disassembly of the model?

I've never painted anything, and I'm even more nervous to take it apart. It just looks so **** good!

Thank you first of all, but yes you could just tape it and paint it. Use tamiya tape and cut it and tape off the middle section and then reverse it and should work just fine.

I did something similar with my Super Star Destroyer, but not as involved. A simple Nuln oil wash over the city section, top and bottom, and red engines with yellow shade. It looks so much better, to my eyes. I think that FFG must have found that adding additional paint layers increased production costs, time, or both, because in the original marketing materials, the ship does appear two-tone, whereas the final product was basically monotone. Of course, this could also just be the image playing tricks on us.
