  1. Hi Everyone, this is something I've been working on as part of a bigger project to cover the (rather neglected) female pilots of the Star Wars OT era. Each project will have a craft and figure. For those of you that don't know, when they were made, ANH and ESB had no female pilots, but ROTJ was supposed to have them. They even shot video of three, but apparently test screenings of ROTJ with them in got negative comments about women in combat (this was 1983) so they took them out. Except one - an A-Wing pilot called Sila Kott who you can glimpse for a second before her death. But they over-dubb
  2. It is time to show the world my finished project! A BTL Y-Wing from starwars. I chose to model the Y-wing as I like the shape of the ship, noticed that there were very few paper models done of this craft and felt it would be a good challenge! The model started with myself gathering image references from around the internet to gauge the complexity of the design, look at design ideas and how it would transition into the real world with card/paper. Top, side, front and back profiles were then placed onto planes in my 3D software which allowed me to start modelling the basi
  3. Modelled in 3ds Max and skinned in Photoshop. As you can imagine it’s taken a few hours so far! I tend to model using paper and could see anyone who has made one online so thought it sounds like a challenge! Here is the main fuselage section This was taken a few weeks back so will post more tomorrow!
  4. I have a thread over on The RPF, but I thought I'd start one here as well. Since Bandai never came out with a 1/48 Y-Wing, I have decided to make one on my own. I'm using my 3D printer (Elegoo Mars) to print these parts. The model is from CGTrader and I'm scaling it to the appropriate size, relative to the 1/48 X-Wing. So here we go! I'm going to use this thread to document my build. So here we go! Just pulled these two parts off the printer this morning. I waaaaaay overdid the supports on the canopy because it's a very delicate part, and because I didn't want it warpi
  5. Hey. Thought I'd share some pics of my current project, the Bandai 1/72 BTL-A4 Y-Wing Starfighter This is my first kit and build in close to four years, and the first I've ever tried to weather up/varnish etc, so any feedback would be welcome Not yet complete, of course. The cockpit section isn't fully seated because it'll be easier to weather the back panel with it off, heh.
  6. Hello everyone... This is my take on Green Twelve. This Y-wing is in a non Standard finish as its primary job would be long range scouting of Imperial yards and shipping lanes. It is a 1/144th Bandai kit and was built alongside an X-wing in the same scale. They were built for the Sci-fi/Movie-TV Group build. Questions, comments, and or thoughts ? Here is the link to the build. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/ind
  7. Hi all, For various reasons I set this project aside back in the summer. Then our photo sharing went belly up. I have gotten back into the model and I have Flickr for my photo sharing. I will be re-posting the earlier pictures over the next few days and updating the text a bit in light of the long break in time. Thanks, Jim The Original Start: I have wanted a model of a Y-wing for some time. In my mind, the Y-wings are rather like the F-4 Phantom family- reasonably fast, rugged, multi-mission, and they were around for a long time. As I thought about a Y-wing mo
  8. Hi all, Well at long last my journey with the Y-wing has come to an end. I give thanks for the help and encouragement I got from my buddies, especially Boz and Wally; they kept me plugging along and keeping to the right path for this beast. These final pictures illustrate how she came out. Not a perfect model but I'm really happy with the results. First up is a picture of the bottom; I find it at least as interesting as the top side. Next, here is a picture of the base. It is a simple box with the power plug and a switch in the back. You can see the t
  9. I enjoyed the 1/72 version of this kit so much I ordered the Bandai 1/144 scale Y-Wing which promptly arrived in the post via a South American river. A little box art to whet your whistle. Gratuitous sprue shot Sticker placement guide for those who plan to use them (not me) And neatly hidden instructions inside the box lid (magnifying glass not included). Not content with building out of the box I started with hollowing out the blaster cannon and carving away some of the supporting plastic from the base.
  10. This isn't so much a build (the things just fall together) as a painting progress. I actually constructed this kit and painted up the cockpit and pilot in February..... 2016. It has since languished on the shelf in all it's raw plastic glory waiting patiently for me to decide how I was going to tackle it..... until yesterday. So.. the box art we should all be familiar with by now. Cockpit and pilot painted up and weathered I wanted to keep the astromech droid body for a diorama I had in mind so I made a copy that would take one o
  11. My first completion of 2017. Sounds great, eh? Not when I haven't previously completed a build since 2015 it doesn't . Anyway, this was done to get a model built and to kick my lack of motivation in the bum. Seems to have worked, and I'm quite pleased with the result. This is the Fine Molds kit, and was a joy, with the exception of the transfers. I found them very sensitive to everything I normally do, so had to be very careful. Tamiya paint and Ammo by Mig panel line washes. The base (cheap, and from Walmart) will be finished at some point. Less waffle, more piccies:
  12. BTL-A4 Y-wing Bandai 1/144 scale Bandai "Vehicle Model" Y-wing (1/144 scale); completed in Tamiya & Vallejo acrylics, Mr Color lacquers, and Mig Productions enamels. This is was a fun little weekend project! I started it late Sunday morning and finished it up Monday morning. I painted it as Dex Tiree's Gold 2 who was famously shot down by Darth Vader during the Battle of Yavin (I had no intention to copy you, Andy!). Truth be told, it could probably stand to have a little more weathering, but I'm pretty happy with how it tur
  13. Hi. Yeah i know, another Bandai. Build number 6 so far, i think. Nearly caught up! Finished about a month ago. Yet it again its to grey in the most part. Need to leave things lighter to take the weathering into account! Will i build another Y? Hmmm … the pipe work was a job and a half. Probably get a plumber in to do that next time. Managed to find a white background for me photos. Still missing a fill light though. Thanks for looking. Cheers
  14. All done! My first completed model in several years, and the first I've ever weathered up! Took nearly three months of restocking paints and whatnot, but I think it turned out quite nicely Did my best to match the griminess of the movie model Gaz.
  15. Hey all, The Bandai builds just keep on coming - this one in about five days - a minor miracle - but Christmas holidays helped a lot. So much plumbing!!!! Carpo
  16. Hi Guys This is Finemolds 1/72 Y-wing completed June 2014. The kit was built OOB for the most part with a little extra detail in the cockpit and scratch built steering vanes. I didn't want to finish it as one of the film versions so went with a fictitious scheme. The paint chipping was done with a combination of masking fluid and hairspray. I'm not 100% happy with the colour choices I made and I'd love the opportunity to try a different scheme on another but of course Finemolds have lost the licence now. Hopefully they'll keep the tooling safe and they'll be re-issued one day. Anyway, enjoy
  17. I thought it was high time I showed off our star wars models that we've built. All of them are fine molds kits. The millennium falcon was made by my husband, David and lives in our living room coffee table. The X-wing is my favorite model in our cabinet also made by David. The insides of the x's have added scratch built detail. The y-wing is made by myself (you can tell, at the time I was only just getting into the whole weathering thing by hand whilst he had just had a skills breakthrough with the whole airbrush weathering thing!). The Tie Interceptor was also made by David as a commission fo
