Well, now that I have been officially temporary laid-off (OH JOY) I have a little time on my hands. I did this little escape pod kit from a game called legion? I believe. I thought it was pretty cool and detailed for such a small model - 5 inches long. I did it his in 2 days. fun little build. I added some of my own detail as you can see, don't know what you call them but I added those 4 triangular shaped cooling find with the holes between the engine bells and the wire/hoses from magnet wire then drilled holes in the bells to glue them in and bent the wire over the fins. primed , base coat, then final detailing. guess this is a little test (literally) before I tackle the big studio scale one! enjoy the pics. think I captured the look of the original pretty well for as small as this is. thanks again everyone for inspiring me to keep on modeling! stay safe.

Excellent work!

I have a bunch of Star Wars Legion stuff, did not realize they did an escape pod. I will have to pick one up

The stuff tends to fall somewhere between 1/45 and 1/48

thanks! Yeah, I didn't either till my buddy who play the legion game (I don't) picked it up. in fact he want me to paint his now, MMMMM - NOT. I was amazed at the level of fine detail this kit has and had to get one. of course I did my own mods to it to get it up to snuff! but I think if you can do a somewhat decent paint job you can get some really good results. it's all a matter of perspective. a little scratch building can go a long way. the wire/rope things attached to the engine bells were the only thing I had to cut out as it was molded to the kit and looked awful. so I took my own route.
