I've had a couple of Bandai's Vehicle Model kits sitting around half finished for much of this year (a state that's been all too common with several of my builds in 2018). I'm currently trying (probably in vain) to get several projects wrapped up before the end of the year and, as these didn't require all that much work, they were the first to get finished.

 

A-Wing Vehicle Model 010

Up first is the little 1/144 A-Wing, finished in the red/white movie scheme. The weathering on this is a little rougher than I'd like, but it is what it is, and at least I've got it done.

You do get a pair of these in the box and the second one is built but not painted yet. I've modified the guns, rear fins and engine nozzles slightly, and it'll be finished in a non-movie scheme that's yet to be determined.

AT-M6 Vehicle Model 012

The second completed build is the First Order Walker from TLJ. It scales out roughly at 1/550, so it doesn't really fit in with any of the other Bandai releases which is a shame (or not, if you don't like the subject). There's not a lot you can do with something that's entirely grey, especially at this scale, but I've tried to vary the tone a bit and pick out some of the panels. The finish isn't entirely accurate (the grey should be quite a bit darker), but it turned out reasonably well.

Thanks for looking

Small but beautifully formed.

I vote for off white and tiger stripes for the second A wing.

Intriguing idea Pete. I'll give it some though

just curious as to where you order your kits from? Have got some of mine from amazon

Mainly from Ebay, although I've had a few from Amazon over the years. Essentially wherever it's cheaper. Hopefully the new year will give us more options when the Revell re-releases appear.

Maybe someone will make a bigger M6 walker someday.

Hope so, and a Resistance Bomber while they're at it.
