Is there something you cannot do? Wow...paint job is A+ for sure (y) (y) :cool::cool::notworthy::notworthy: I guess you'll add the oil streaks on the pistons also?
Thanks Joberg, there's lots I can't do.... yet. ;) I'm painting and weathering the underside units in sections, then with everything done I'll go back and balance out the tones and weathering, tweak any missed bits. That's 'PLan A'. :confused:

I've just finished painting the wings and underside of 'Slave 1' using Archive-X acrylics and oils.
You can see exactly how on my YouTube channel HERE

Amazing once again :cool: :cool: (y) (y) :notworthy::notworthy: I know that the rod is a great way to display models; especially with moving parts (like the wings of this ship) Would a clear acrylic plate, with the proper attaching nut, do the trick also?
The plate would be the same width,(not the shape), as the bottom of the skirt and this plate secured to the base...you would still see the underside more clearly than the one with the rod;)
Just an idea:)

Hi Joberg, that's a good option for displaying Slave 1. The problem I have is that with all the resin printed parts Slave 1 currently weighs about 6 kilos. An acrylic cradle would be a good option but you can see why my stand is designed to withstand seismic charges.
