  1. So this is the Death Star II that came with the mini Star Destroyer I posted in the "Ready for Inspection" forum. I'm not really one for documenting my builds but I figured I'd make an effort moving forward. The reason this is the v2 is that a year or so ago I built my first Death Star II but it was lost (along with a kick-bottom viper Mk VII build) in a cross-country move. Man, don't even get me started on what a hideous experience moving is! So here's the progress to date. It's a simple build that I complicated with lighting. I think I drilled about 60 holes for fibe
  2. As with others, I can't see any of your pictures. Have you checked out Lou Dalmaso's build?
  3. This is some of the best paintwork I've ever seen. A masterclass indeed!
  4. Apologies in advance for my lousy camera skills. I only have my phone to use. It's a pretty simple model. I did some post shading with an airbrush and then a light wash with oils but it's hard to see that in the photos. Three LEDs for the engines and then fibers for a few window lights and the hangar bay. Not a lot to it. Dave ht
  5. I know this is an old post, but how did you get the canopy open? I have this on order and my understanding is that it does not have an open for an open canopy. Also, where did you pick up some of your diorama accessories? They look great.
  6. That looks great! The gold Bussard collectors really stand out. I was curious how your black basing would work with this ship (I usually see it done on aircraft), but I really like how it turned out.
  7. Thank you! I bought a figure but didn't really care for how it looked. It's actually kind of hard to find figures in this scale that look good. For now I'm considering it done.
  8. I may do a Raptor at some point. Right now I'm working on Colonial One. I'll post pictures here shortly but if you want to see some progress pics, you can go here: http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=7607.0
  9. The engines, which will be lit with flickering blue 1.3mm LEDs. I need one more light to finish the cockpit and then I can start putting this all together. I'm still unsure how I'm going to get the wiring into the base. I'd like it to be invisible but I'm not sure how I'm going to manage it. I'm thinking I may put in a fake fuel hose or something. Here's the front landing strut. These things were kind of a pain to get out the seam lines and paint in a way that they look kind of interesting. The engines. The side control rods were also rather difficult to attach. I gav
  10. Hey everyone. This is only my third model kit as an adult. The first two were a TIE interceptor and TIE fighter. I started this build about a year ago, worked on it for a while and then put it aside as a series of cascading life problems overwhelmed my time. I finally picked this back up about two months ago and have been slowly working my way toward the finish line. I am not a fast builder by any means. The pilot is now not going to be used. The photo etch probably won't be seen very well either. Photo etch landing bays will be largely hidden now that I'
