So, my second build of Finemold's 1/72 Slave 1 is now finished. This kit is actually the Jango Fett version but I've painted it here in the original Boba Fett colours. The two kits are essentialy the same anyway, with just a few detail differences between the two. I made a few modifications to the kit to bring this one closer to Boba's ship, and also incorporated some of the details that have shown up in the ship's appearence in the Mandalorian.

This build turned out a little more accurate than my old one, mainly because I paid closer attention to matching more of the subtle but distinctive paint and weathering aspects of the studio model.

 

I can't imagine that I'll be doing one of these again any time soon, unless someone sees fit to re-release the kit, so it's been fun to get the chance to revisit the kit which I originally built back in 2014.

The full build can be found here

    And finally, the old and new ones parked side by side. 2021 on the left, 2014 on the right

Sensational! Putting them both side by side like that demonstrates just how much control you have over the final weathering and chipping. The wear patterns and colours and tones and stains etc are almost identical between the two models. My own approach to weathering is much more hit and miss. This  shows just how much I have to learn!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the next Star Wars Vehicle, The "Razorcrest" when it comes out!

 

Yes, I'm very curious to see what Revell are going to give us with that one. Hopefully something halfway decent, and preferably not pre-painted.
