WIP : Fine Molds 1/72 Y-Wing Fighter Pt.2 – Painting & Finishing

Painting begins with my usual black base using Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black. I’m trying a different marble coat this time with patches of various colors. I wanted to see these would have effect on the main colors. The primary color for the Y-wing is thinned Game Color Dead White. The nice thing about priming in …...

WIP : Fine Molds 1/72 Y-Wing Fighter Pt.1 – Construction

Time for a more stress-free build in the shape of this Star Wars kit from the folks at Fine Molds. As usual with anything that looks like an aircraft, the cockpit is built first. It’s on the simple side but once the pilot is in place, most the things here can’t be seen. With some …...

WIP : Bandai 1/72 X-wing starfighter Pt. 2 – Painting and Finishing

The following is a general step-by-step on how I finish my model kits. First up is a primer base oF black. I prefer black now over other colors because if I miss some areas later with the main colors, it’s pretty much instant shadowing. The final tones definitely don’t look the same compared to painting …...

Upcoming : Bandai PG 1/72 Millenium Falcon

I’ve heard rumblings of this and was surprised that it wasn’t announced at Shizouka 2017, but here it is after all. Bandai has labeled it as ‘Perfect Grade’ which means it’ll probably include all the bells and whistles, including the light-up bits. Based on their Star Wars products so far, this will be a...

WIP : Bandai 1/72 X-wing starfighter Pt. 1 – Construction

In the middle of getting bogged down with the fitting issues of my F-5, I decided to get this already snapfitted kit done. As usual, it was a joy to snapfit and 99% of it doesn’t require cement. Out of the box, this builds into Luke Skywalker’s Red 5 from the Battle of Yavin, and …...

WIP : Bandai Stormtrooper Pt. 4

Mild weathering done with a mixture of Blue Black + Burnt Umber oil paint mix. Mid-way through this I remembered that Bandai plastic has a tendency to crack from turpentine. Hopefully this one holds like my Snowspeeder. It’s also at this point that I think the paint chips look too random. Oh well, chalk it …...
