Mandalorian Razor Crest

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there’s a kit of the spaceship from the Mandalorian available or planned? It looks like it would be fun to build, and a chance to try out some bare metal foil.

Please make one, Bandai!

I don't believe so. There haven't been any new Revell Kits announced, and Bandai's new stuff are mostly boring choices (A repainted X-Wing!) from Rise of Skywalker. Nothing for The Mandolorian that i know of.

Looks quite small in that pic - what sort of size is it? :hmmm:

 

OP's original question sprang to mind after watching the first two episodes, and I'd be utterly disappointed if Bandai didn't give it a whirl, as their pre-chromed Phasma was an exercise in how a chromed kit could be done.  Add a barrier coat of clear gloss/satin and then appropriate streaking/grime/hazing and you'd have an awesome looking model.  I'm also hopeful we'll get a few Mandalorian figures from the series too :pray:

The baseline model is actually surprisingly well detailed and greebled, and comes in 2 parts for easy printing . If printing at the original scale, the finished model looks to be around 150mm Wide x 199mm Long.

 

On my larger printer, without cutting the model just scaling up, i can probably go to 185% scale (277mm wingspan, 368mm) -  if i was to trim off the engines and print those separate, probably could get around twice that size again, something around 60cm wingspan and 75cm long.  - But that would be one/several LONG prints.

75cm long! :shocked:  wonder what that scales out to be?  It doesn't seem to be a huge ship judging by the people/Jawas next to it, and I'd rather stick to a scale than a size.  1:72 or 1:48 would gel with the majority of the Bandai stuff, but unless the print and/or your prep is super-smooth you'll be struggling when it comes to adding all that chrome/polished metal, as it's well-known for showing up every little blemish :owww: You could hide some of it with dirt, but you'd still have to be pretty fastidious :hmmm:

 

Someone's made a decent job of one:

Ah, looking at the other pics on Thingiverse, they used the base model and scabbed on raised panels to get more of a smooth look to it.  I'd be tempted to scoop out the cockpit and make up a clearvac canopy somehow.  Lots of work though, which would probably take just enough time for Bandai to release a well-priced kit of the thing :doh:

As you say, by the time youve got round to all the little tweaks and amendments, a kit would most likely surface!

If i was to print one i would probably keep it at one of the classic scales of my other stuff, 1/72 or 1/48 - 1/32 might be a bit too much! 


Sticking on cut to size plasticard to represent the chromed/metallic panels is probably the way to do it. unless you spend all week with the sandpaper and filler, or printed it in resin on a SLA printer. 

 

A couple of years ago i gifted my brother 3d printed Elite Dangerous space craft in 1/48 , and used some flattened and cut bits of coke can glued to the hull to look like field repaired panels, and that actually didnt look half bad!  - looking at the nacelles, im wondering if you got your wire brush on the outer surface, stripped off the paint, then cut, you could use the natural curvature to match the hull.....


But heres me thinking of yet another project with half a dozen already on the go. NO. MUST COMPLETE ONE FIRST . :D

Thanks, I’ll ask a mate to print one for me. It will look good with my Bandai Star Wars vehicle models.

I think Bandai could make a great edition of this subject.

I do not know if they have licensing for this new series or not, IIRC It is not being broadcast in Japan (yet)- one of the big motivations for which subjects Bandai uses to determine what to produce.

 

Personally I think there would be a better chance for a Revell kit (of course with play action sounds) or a nice Gaming miniature we could repaint and detail some.

Hey, long time lurker here but never been able to create an account for some reason. I had to link my facebook account which im not terribly happy about. Anyway The Mandalorian is out 26/12 in Japan on disney deluxe, most likely to not interfere with Disneys promotion of Ep 9, Last Jedi got mixed reception in Japan and its a big market for them. Bandai have already announced 4 figures, 2 new 2 rehashes, from the show in their SH Figuarts brand (prepainted) so they do have the license. I think its a safe bet to say the Mandalorian will be popular in Japan, its old school star wars and draws heavily from classic Japanese samurai films. A 1/72 Razor Crest would be pretty big though, at least by their standards. I think, cant find any info on its size.
