Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer

Recommended Posts

Even though I have constructed Revell's build and play Star Wars kits in the past, I had written off the Last Jedi set as a no go zone. Don't get me wrong, despite the controversy, I loved the movie, but I just wasn't sold on those vehicles. However, seeing other people's builds of these kits, and noticing the kit prices going up, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the Walker, A-wing and Ren's Tie Silencer. I put this kit together in about 15 minutes, but the fun of these kits is in the painting. For this build I simply did  the following.....painted the clear parts with Tamiya Clear Red (inside is preferable), drilled out the canons and rocket launchers. Tamiya's black panel line wash filled all the recessed detail and was then wiped back with thinner, making sure to leave a little grime. This was all followed with panel differentiation using oils and a final coat of flat varnish. It was a super fast and enjoyable project. Hope you like it.

I was looking at the Lego version of this in a toyshop yesterday, it's a really cool design and I wish it'd had a bit more screen time.

 

Your rendition is great, it's awesome to see people turn "toy" kits into something much better.

 

Cheers,
