Jodo Kast's Shuttle Foxcatch

FFG X-wing custom (1/270)

 

 

♦ Rotating wings

Construction

I built the Foxcatch using the Fantasy Flight Games Lambda Shuttle. Basically, I added the 6 modified X-wing engines using styrene tubes and various parts. I added the extra laser cannons to the wing roots. Then, I cut out the main wing, as well as shaving a little off the side wings. Finally, I added some various “greeblies” to the main wing.

Painting consisted of priming, grey layer, chipping fluid, and a green/grey layer. Once I had chipped the shuttle, I created a mask of the Kast clan emblem and sprayed it on either side of the main wing. I painted a few more details and used light AK washes to get the effect of a worn ship.

Backstory

Jodo Kast was a bounty hunter who dressed up like Boba Fett to get more notoriety. This came back to bite him when Fett finally tracked him down and shot him with a nerve toxin. Fett left the antidote within arms reach of Kast next to a jetpack ready to explode...a situation Fett could easily survive. But not Kast.

Kast’s ship the Foxcatch was a modified Lambda T-4a shuttle. He added 6 X-wing engines to the beast, giving it much faster sublight speed. Kast also added another laser cannon to each of the wing root emplacements. Finally, Kast modified the wings making them shorter, and adding sensor equipment to main wing.
