Hello all, These are 2 of my older Star Wars builds, my Bandai 1/144 Slave 1 and 1/72 B-wing. Since we moved early this year both kits were in boxes and only last week we finally managed to clear up some space to display all of our older builds, including Slave 1 and the B-wing. Slave 1 was built over a year ago and was my first Star Wars build, it was also my first time using the hairspray technique for weathering. The kit was painted with Tamiya acrylics and, AK medium chipping fluid was used for the weathering. The base was painted to resemble the landing platform which Slave 1 lands in Cloud City, Bespin, in the film “The Empire Strikes Back”. The B-wing was completed a short time later and like Slave 1 was also painted with Tamiya acrylics. The round orange squadron markings were painted and the model was weathered with Abteilung 502 oils. Both kits were really fun to build and paint, and I was quite pleased with the results. Comments welcome!
Hello Mates, few years ago we from IPMS Austria planned a Special "40 Years of SW" for our Exhibition in March 2017. So i cannot shut up as always and so it begins........i want to built the Jango and Boba Fett Slave 1's. A long searching for the Finemolds kits long out of production, and as always its going bigger, in this case more then planned. I can get 4 Slaves for a real good price, but only one is the Boba version. And so the Desaster is going on, changed my plan to show 2 of them in Flightmodus and the others in landingposition on Kamino and Bespin.To get another Boba Fett version a bit of casting parts and cut down the kitparts followed. But then, also as always, way too late, i begin with glueing and sanding, rescribing and painting.And lights everywhere with Lightfibres and LEDs. I use prefabricated LEDs for 12V . So here we go.... For the 2 Machines in landed Position i build a Interior from Scratch, with Plasticard, Parts os a Uboat, some Plugletters forgrooved Boards and a lot of Imagination and Fantasy..... For the Thruster i go another way then most modellers, most of them cast this in clear resin. But i dont like the Look so i go the complicated way with halfround tube, semiopaque Plasticard , a bit of orange clear Tube and filler....painting is done with Tamiya, Gunze and Revell Acrylics And i build a Rocketlauncher as seen in SW 2 " Attack of the Clones"
Hi all, life got in the way last year to complete the Slave 1, but this year I've found the time and really enjoyed this build. I wanted to show Solo in the carbonite so decided to present him in the lower cockpit bay, I hope you all enjoy the photos.
