    Here is my version of anakins pod racer.
    The only modes I did to this one is I replaced the hoses with Bass guitar strings (the kit parts were too much of a pain) and painted the strips on the pod.
    Let me know what you think, comments are always welcomed.

    Yeah I know, no anakin, I never got around to finishing him. Still on the board.

    Not bad--you need way more dirt on the engines though

    Nice and clean build, yes maybe just a little bit too clean but it still looks good.

    Although the pod race would have looked a bit odd

    Thanks for the feedback. I did notice in the photos that the engines did look alittle clean, they are dirtier in person. I took the photos in natural light and the exposure was a little long. I think that's why the shades didn't come through. But it's a pod racer, it could always be dirtier.
    I may do another one in the future, I have another kit that I was going to use for parts.
    I would definately make that one look like it just won the race, maybe even a diorama through tattoine canyons or something.
    I'll add it to the list of projects that's getting a mile long it seems like.

    I really wish they had gotten to do the Sebulba podracer, that way people could do more complete dioramas

    The things on the bottom of the engines should be red.

    I think it looks better with more subtle weathering. most weathering becomes more extreme when photographed, imo.

    Im pretty sure is the other way. Photographs tend to wash out the weathering.
