  1. Hi Bertie, thanks for your nice comment. My AT-ST was painted with my wonderful Iwata Neo airbrush, which was a present from my dad after months of practicing with his airbrush, I usually only paint details and figures by brush.
  2. Hi Rob, thanks for your kind words and advice. Generally, I don’t like to do too much weathering on my sci-fi models, especially Imperial ones, because I think the Rebel Alliance would’ve destroyed them way before they’d had a chance to get too dirty, but mostly because I like being able to see what the vehicle looked like when it came out of the factory. On the other hand, I think ships like the Millennium Falcon or Slave 1 should have more weathering on them since they are ships that have been used for a longer period of time and therefore have had more time to get dirty and start losing their paint jobs. As for the washes on the AT-ST, I haven’t had any problems with my kit falling apart, I use an enamel wash over my acrylic paints; though if you use acrylic washes over acrylic paints, it might attack the paint underneath it.
  3. Cool diorama, like the background and the lighting on both the star destroyer and the death star 2.
  4. Hello all, Well, this is my second post, it’s Bandai’s 1/48 AT-ST (manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards) aka Chicken Walker, I finished this one today after about 2 months of work, the whole thing was painted with Tamiya’s XF-19 (sky grey) and then weathered with Abteilung 502 oils and some pigments, the base was painted with lifecolor’s german tank brown and then I added shrub tufts from Green Stuff. I’m 14 years old and I’m still learning a lot, so any comments welcome. Hope you enjoy it!
  5. Hello, This is my first post, my dad and I are a modelling team and we enjoy the hobby together, he has been modelling since he was a boy while I just started 2 years ago, I do more sci-fi kits whilst he does aircraft kits; I completed it a few weeks ago, it’s Bandai’s 1/72 RZ-1 A-wing starfighter (interceptor, which is manufactured by Kuat Systems Engineering) from the movie “Return of the Jedi” flown by green leader also known as Arvel Crynyd, who dies by flying it into the bridge of the super star destroyer known as the “Executor”. My model was painted using mainly Tamiya acrylics and AK Real Colors acrylics. This was a really fun and easy build, like all Bandai kits it just snapped together. I really like the result and I hope you like it too. Questions and comments welcome!
  6. Amazing build, the attention to detail is fantastic! Love the lighting, and the paint job on the Millennium falcon.
  7. Great job! I like the weathering, and the paint job on both the snowspeeder and the pilots are really good.
