Hi,

still not ready with the first one I wanted to build a second Snowspeeder, this time with open panels. Then I can make a version with red markings and one with grey markings. First steps are made:1_E0_E9_B26-888_C-442_B-8_E99-9_B7221703

This is just getting too good for words, we get a build thread for a scratch build of a snow speeder; I’m going to need to get my chair pulled up for this one.

This time I will post pictures of the build process and keep you informed as good as I find time for this project!

Yesterday and today I have made further parts which still need to be filled with more putty and sanded down accordingly.696_D250_B-595_B-4_DF7-908_F-_DB4577_E73D7_A51_F5_D-_BC20-41_B5-_AB2_A-866_A12673857_C233-33_B9-41_BC-8_E93-_C4_D6_C0_DF

Here something I have already built but unfortunately with two millimeter styrene plates. But it need to be three millimeters. It looks to thin in my view.

Mindmax, this is one excellent looking machine! I think you're showing true courage by scratch building this thing. Just take your time finishing it!

This is a VERY nice build!

 

I decided to start scratchbuilding a 1/12th scale one figuring, "it's all straights and angles!....how hard could it be?"

 

It is still to this day sitting in the closet of doom!

 

Nice to see someone who has the taelnt to put these deceptively hard vehicles together!
 

GREAT WORK!

Nothing new so far, only a size comparison between my first 1:10 Snowspeeder (which is obviously still not finished) and a sixth scale figure from Sideshow:

Here a comparison to the original Snowspeeder model as seen at the Star Wars Identities:

This is precisely the kind of masterful styrene work I would dearly love to be able to replicate, but even scratchbuilding simple boxes are a challenge for me!

 

A beautiful piece of work that is a sheer joy to see come together, I love those detailed open panels!
