    Dude it looks great. I never really thought about it before but I think the EU stuff is a bit ...I don't want to say easier...but less "battle damaged" and that makes it a bit more appealing to me. The original trilogy just looks wrong when even close to "clean". EU stuff look perfect just a little "scuffed up" [​IMG] Seriously though its an extremely nice diorama! A+

    Thanks! I did spend a little time deciding how much wear and damage to model. I figured that Rogue Squadron probably has some of the best mechanics and newest equipment, so I did a dark gray wash and just some basic wear from flying through a battle. I haven't been able to get a good shot yet, but I did have a place where the Future coat ran, first time using it and I put it on too thick, and I tried to scrape it off... It left a neat mark that looked like a laser hit, so I just kept it.
