I'm a new member and although I've been " observing " for a while , this is my first posting . I've been following the threads on the new Hasbro "Hero Collection" Falcon as I recently picked one up and am definately in the market for any hints , tips and general assistance ! I've not done any serious mods yet , apart from removing the landing gear and turbo lasers from the underside , but have started to experiment with paint . To be honest , there were details I wanted to modify before I started to paint , but once I started , I just got carried away ! I primed the beast with a Plasticote Super Primer and used another Plasticote ( Satin Porceline ) for my basecoat . As the paint failed the "masking tape test ", I've been adding the different coloured panels by hand and am using pastel chalks ( dry and as washes ) for the weathering and damage . It's still early days ( I see this being a long term project !) but I'm quite happy with how things are moving along . My next step will be to start work on the cockpit .
