Bandai 1/12 BB-8

Recommended Posts

I was able to BB-8 finished up over the weekend. The final pieces added were the two sensor eyes, the larger on was given a light coat of Tamiya Clear Red on the inside, and smaller one clear blue, as these colors were visible in lenses in photos of the auctual BB-8  ;D  The orange and white were mixed from formulas in the instructions using Tamiya paints. He was slightly weathered using oils to match photos of the filming miniature and sat on a small desert sand base.  The wooden base was made from a piece of Sapele wood as an added touch.

The parts for R2-D2 should be going through the paint shop this week, so his companion should be coming along soon :D

Great work ... I've been busy so much lately. I haven't gotten around to anything but the group build areas.
