Yeah, nice! Good shade variations.
Thanks Brother Scott.

Don't laugh...

I tried to paint it so it looked like FOAM.

Pure grey of any shade...just didnt look right.

So I did flat black, then misted with a primer I liked. I purposely painted each one separately, so there were inconsistencies.

Oh..I discovered WHY they made them out of foam. Besides cost of course..
WEIGHT!! 24 of things weigh 3 lbs. The base has 58 on it.

Are those tiles are to scale with the eFx ship or are they just too cool to worry about? I know nothing about Deathstar tiles so I do not know if there is a particular scale tile I should look for or even if there is a correct pattern to the layout of the different tiles.

Frank is a fantastic mold maker and caster. But that's nothing compared to his painting skills.

This has both. Saw it last week.

Best ever.

Basically..same scale as the ICONS base.

Im guess ing they are a little SMALL for as close as the ship, is, but Think FORCED PERSPECTIVE.

Thanks Mike!

So simple, yet great results. Cool!

Hey Frank, can I apply to be your nephew too?! :lol

It's good to see you making something besides kits, and the work looks really good! I haven't really seen your build work much til this x-wing stuff.

Thanks Brother Scott.
