Some Photos of stuff, you know Slave-1 & Interceptors.

Just for completion I thought this should be posted here too.

This is my Shuttle. Since I messed it up so much trying to get the wings to work I just pinned it into flight position. It looked like it would have scraped off any paint I had on the chassis anyway. Luckily the back fin of mine comes seperate so it shouldn't be hard to store.

I went with a very different colour scheme. I thought it would look striking in black. So here is the ST-623 "Eclipse" requisitioned to the Emperor's Shadow Guard.

And here is a close up of the tail detail, It's the ships call sign and reference number in Aurebesh.

Well that is two of my Bombers finished. They are interesting models to paint, in the movies they are almost completely one shade of grey, but I felt they needed a bit more definition at this scale so tried to use a variety of different shades for different areas. Also my Vet has it's ship number written on the Weapons pod and a thin red stripe.

LOL, and I'm aware one is flying sideways... OOPS.. I'll take some more pictures when I next have the Camera set up with them flying the right way.

Had to do a slight modification to the stem for the Bombers, due to their weight they moved all over the place when you picked them up. So I had to add a collar on the top of the stem and use a 3mm. I also found a 3mm at the bottom really helped so I made this alteration to all of my Mk2 stems.

Is that a metal attachment to the base of the mini itself you are using to connect it to the rod? What size is that/where did you get it? I'd like to do the same thing but with the CorSec rods with a metal sphere cap that allows you to 'bend' the ship into its manuevers, give it more of a life like look.

Love the bombers.

 

How do you go about making your wreckage? You mentioned the material you use previously but do you think you would possibly be willing to share a tutorial with us sometime?

I might well do one over on A Few Maneuvers sometime next week. I'm thinking of doing a second destroyed bomber so it might be a good one to show off.

Not the best photos, but these will be sprayed before I get a chance to take another photo. Another two Asteroids, these a bit more Asteroid-ey... In space over time debris collect into small clumps. So I thought I would make some clumps of rock, dust and Tie Fighter bits.

The Rock is slate which I've broken up with a Hammer. I've taken a reasonably sized piece and glued a piece of plastic rod to the back, reinforcing with my Green Stuff/Milliput Mix. Then I've stuck down the larger ship pieces, then build up the rock around them using more smaller pieces of slate and a mix of sand and PVA glue to fill in the gaps.

I then put them in the oven on a Slow Cook to dry faster. Once reasonably set I drilled out holes and glued in wire for extra detailing.
