Here is another one of my recent works i forgot to share with you guys here. this was a ton of fun to make and my first time using 3d printed upgrades on scale models. Bandai kits as usual are a joy to work with.
i tried to mimic the ILM studio models aesthetic in these first shots, scroll down for more in depht pictures

i eyeballed the color on the at-at. it's approx 80% tamiya sky grey and 20% tamiya flat white.

most weathering was airbrushed, with some oils for grime and snow.

also bought some 3d printed crates for the trenches and a couple of turrets. i was amazed by the level of detail on such a small print

anti slips plates are scratchbuilt using thin plasticard and masking tape strips. all the snow is Tamiya snow powder effect

Nice work! :)

And great paint job on the speeders. Could I use one of your shots for my Age of Plastic page?

That's gorgeous. I've still got my bandai AT-AT model in a box...this makes me want to put it together

How did you make the snow? It looks great! (as does the rest of the diorama, of course)
thank you! all the snow is made with tamiya snow effects. it comes in a thick paste that dries solid like resin, but keeping the powdery, translucent consistency of snow. great stuff highly reccomended
