Finally managed to get my Gonk Droid to a stage where I am happy with him (had a slight nightmare during build that is covered in my build thread, but also a very luck recovery).

He still needs a proper display base where he can be with BB8, but for now I'm calling the done.

 

thanks for looking,

Great work -- you can never have too much weathering or chipped paint on any (non Imperial) SW droid, IMO

 

I never understood why the various model companies that have had SW licenses over the years never put out a set of droid models. And not those tiny Bandai ones, either, but kits large enough to detail properly.

Got to agree Chris, this one from JPG Productions has been a joy to work on and a nice size to learn how to weather (and how not to as well).

Another abused Gonk

Is there any other kind of Gonk!!

 

Great build Chief and well recovered.  As everyone else love the ring stains on the top.

 

I don't know why but I would love to see one of these kits in pristine condition as a Racing Team Droid, something along the lines of Gulf or Rothmans colours!  Or is that just me!

To be honest I had considered a mouse droid in the old gulf racing colours from the GT40, but reckoned it would be a lot of difficult masking so gave it up. I should have tried a JPS Special mouse droid!

never thought of a Gonk in racing colours, that would look really good.

that's really incredible paint and wear and tear work - I love the rusty cup marks on the top of Gonk's gonk!

You want to take a look at the WIP and see what a lucky rescue this was: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235024243-gonk-droid/

 

i got got a lot of encouragement from the peeps on here too so I feel a great deal of credit is owed to the collective!
