Hi. Build number 4 on the journey. Had a lovely old time putting this together. Really enjoyable. Have to thank AndyRM101’s Snowspeeder build for inspiration & help along the way. His build was invaluable. Many thanks Andy. Had a few fit issues with the engine pods around the rear cockpit, but that was my fault by glueing in the front gun pods before i had everything painted & sorted. My dad bought me a 1/32 Hawker Hunter, which is huge, so i built the speeder while contemplating what i was going to do with that, apart from build it. Here’s some pics of the speeder in its natural environment … of cardboard.

Cheers.

Another nice build :) I reckon you need to treat yourself to a better backdrop, as the cardboard doesn't do your work justice ;)

Its my magic cardboard box. Pop the sprue's in, leave it for a bit, open it up, and voila !

I think you're right though mike Thanks for the nice comment.

That's a fantastic looking Speeder. There's some really nice weathering there.

I'm glad my build was useful.

Great job! :D

Can I ask what you used for the final colour of the fuselage? I have one of these in waiting and I'm contemplating what shade to choose for it.
