Hi folks, I know there's already a great thread by Timmythekid about this really fantastic toy, but I wanted to show you what I've been working on for a wee while.
This is a commission, I was asked to repaint this toy & add some lights to the cockpit, it has the additional Luke figure & both figures will be repainted also.
The first thing I did was to carve out the foggy windows (cut my thumb in the process), & fill up some underside parts of the laser cannons

I filled the underside of the cannons,. but I was still unhappy with them, so I ordered a couple of aluminium tubes from eBay.

I also filled in some sink marks which show up when looking at it from various angles

You did a really good job of cutting those windows out. Can you elaborate on how you did that?

The windows are already cut out in this version.

Wait, what?

Hi folks

I used a small drill to enter the area that I was to cut out with a scalpel blade, cutting the plastic is different to cutting styrene, it doesn’t score & snap, you have to cut cleanly with the blade,...... do it in long continuous slices so that there are no ragged edges.

Just be careful as I said earlier, I did cut myself

Anyway I’ve done a bit more

I was talking with a friend on Facebook & he was saying about the grey stripes on Luke’s Snowspeeder, on the studio model you can see that the stripes are stuck on, either decals or rub down decals & you can see they are lifting a bit, so I had an idea about using inkjet decal paper to use for these stripes

I cut the basic shapes for the nose area,...sprayed them with primer, then airbrushed on Archive-X Lark dk with a bit of AX Grime mixed in

Then they were applied to the model

I’m pretty happy with the way they look

Yeah, me neither. I don't think I am even going to attempt to cut out the windows on mine. I know I don't have the skill to do it and make it look like anything other than crap.

Come on, someone get this canopy (front AND back pieces) available for purchase!!
