Hello @AndyRM101, how did you make that brown effect in the panel line of the new uploaded photo?

 

Hi Piero,

The brown shading was done with heavily thinned Tamiya paint sprayed along the panel lines. The same method as pre-shading, but applied over the paint rather than under it.

This is arguably the most difficult Star Wars model to paint and it is done in the most masterful way. Fantastic.

Nice to see this again, and very brave of you to paint over the glazing but it seems to have paid off nicely!

NB: Pics two and three show a bit of the cyclorama at the top RH side. It's almost invisible but it shows up on my desktop monitor which has a broader gamut I think?

 

Cheers,

 

Will

I know. It's down to my creaky old desktop monitor that I use for post-processing. I can't really calibrate it properly anymore. The backgrounds look pure white on that screen, but when I view them on my chromebook or tablet, there are still murky areas in the corners.

I'll hopefully be getting a new monitor before too long, and upgrading my photo lighting to LED at the same time.

P.S. I like Cyclorama - a very fancy way of referring to the  manky old sheet of white card, covered in cat paw prints, that I use for a backdrop :D

I have always admire your photography work, let alone your modeling ability. Truly an inspiration Andy.

WOW!!!

Well Andy, What can I say that hasn't already been said...… That's a Master Piece!!

 

I see in some of the previous posts you've shared the colour recipe for the hull and main body... and the 'how to' do the chipping etc.

May I be really cheeky and ask the colour recipes for the other parts of the ship, cockpit, engines, underneath, wings (stabilisers), dark grey bits

by the wings (stabilisers) etc

 

Oh..... and the cockpit lighting is Fantastic, did you create that yourself or was that a brought kit?

 

Many Thanks...

I can't remember all the colours precisely to be honest, but, hopefully, the following photos should give you some idea.

 

The main colour on the underside was the same pale green/grey tone used on the main fuselage. The paint chipping was also done the same way with masking fluid.

The other main colours are listed on the photo

The scanner dish and centre panel were painted the same way, but left separate until the end

 

47942311391_2c7c0250d5_b.jpg

 

The engines were painted in a reddish brown. Can't remember the exact colour, but it was probably mixed from Tamiya acrylics. A paler brown was sprayed first for the chipping colour

Everything in place (except the scanner dish), and weathered. Most of the weathering was done with oil and enamel washes

47942310451_dbe07d6cc6_b.jpg

 

The stabilisers were painted in the same colour as the fuselage, and the green part at the top of the arm was probably done in the same shade as the green on the underside

The cockpit was painted in a mid grey. Again, can't remember the exact colour, but it's a fairly generic shade. It had some dry-brushing with a lighter grey, and the details were picked out in various shades

I did the lighting myself on this kit. A few direct LEDs for the ambient lighting and some fibres for the cockpit rear wall and instrument console

Hope that helps

Awesome additional information Andy. Didn't realise you had some lighting in this one.

 

Now we just need Bandai to bring out their 1/72 version with new tooling and awesome details. Surely it must be on their list......

 

Just out of interest Andy. What sort of length, width and height does she have ?

About 12 inches long, 10½ wide, and 5 high

 

While I was digging around in the dusty recesses of my hard drive earlier to find the photos above, I stumbled on some shots I'd taken during the build of a mock-up of the maintenance bay dio I'd originally planned. Still no idea of if or when I'll get around to doing it, but I thought I'd post the shots here in case anyone's interested in seeing how it might have looked, or indeed may still
