Just finished the 2 other vehicles from Bandai's Rogue One set: the U-wing and TIE Striker, both in 1/144 scale. I think the U-wing came out great. I painted a lot of the panels differently and used a great decal set for the dark blue markings. Then I weathered the heck out of it. I probably could have gone further, but I was ready to be done.
Well, here's the unveiling. I was molding a hand...my hand, for use in a diorama. I wanted to make the fallen Jedi statue on Jedha, or at least the hand. I used a water hose attachment as the lightsaber, and molded everything in Play-Doh. Then I cast it in a type of plaster. I have more info on the official Jedha Statue page.
Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy. Any questions or feedback, don't hesitate to email or comment.
It's been a long time since I really got a joy out of painting, weathering, and finishing a model. So, I've recently been jumping back in with the Bandai Rogue One set, the one with the U-wing, TIE Striker, and Imperial Combat Assault Tanks in 1/144 scale. Currently, I've actually finished the TIE Striker. Many thanks go out to Dannon Marsh, who makes some excellent masks for the TIE Striker.
For the U-wing, I'm using Nicholas Sagan's multi-pack of U-wing decals. They need to be cut as close to the marking as possible, but they go on excellently with Mr. Mark Setter and Softer. The Combat Assault Tanks (unpictured) are in the early paint stages.
Now, there's something else I'm working on, which I hope to finish this week. I don't want to spoil it. However, it uses Play-Doh, Durham's Water Putty, and a watering hose attachment. Can you guess what it might be?
I finished a new little diorama using Bandai’s Turbolaser Tower from their A-wing kit. It’s not really to scale with the A-wing, so I added a Fantasy Flight Games B-wing to the base. I also used a new pre-shading technique called black-basing, which I talk about on the page. Hope you all like it.
So, I haven’t been doing much over the past year. I hit a snag with Kylo’s Shuttle, and just kinda quit for a while. But, I did recently pick of Bandai’s TIE Interceptor and TIE Striker. These went together quickly, and I actually managed to paint and weather them. Check them out.
I’ve also written a new article on the size of Moldy Crow using lots of screenshots.
Finally, I wrote a very extensive piece on my favorite character, Asajj Ventress. I talk about her history somewhat. But primarily I discuss how she exhibits all the symptoms of PTSD. Anyway, I think it came out great, and it really hits on what makes her such an amazing character. Check it out here – Asajj Ventress – Tragic Hero.
