Thats cool thanks, just interested as this will likely be the first S1 at this scale to be painted openly so always fun to see whats involved, i'll be doing the same re Tamiya, as long as I can get the colours as I see them. Its so Grey to the eye much more than any pic really tells. Really looking forward to it being documented and seeing the results.
Yes, its very exciting to see the last of the great OT ship designs finally reach completion. I was thrilled to see the photographs of the Slave One in the Disney SW tour last year as it meant someone had finally cracked it, seeing the appearance of this thread kind of gave me the chills. I think everyone can be justifiably pleased by what they have managed to achieve ,given the amount of research and effort that's gone into it, whatever version they have helped create. That hull represents one of the toughest weathering jobs out there to get done accurately, I remember doing my old MPC Slave years ago, getting the layers done in the right order was a challenge and a half. Lots of liquid masking and templates traced of pictures. Go ILM!!!!
