Okay Guys been banging around in the shop and got a project started, yes another scratch build but I am the printer so here is some of the beginning. Also should note I am very happy to start another adventure in model form to many creatures. So my friend calls me up and ask could I do another build for him and this is in 1/6th scale and as some of you guys know I mostly get a bunch of credit for doing the project which means shopping day in Star Wars land, Enough said here we begin

Wow the old creature back there all by his self, I don't know what happened there should finish him up some kind of alien thing, its one of those things where focus is lost and I think it looks scared and kind of dumb. Hate it but one of those shelfed lost focus projects that might be more do able if I only had the right clay Oh only one day. So was out there studying things and did some clean up. Starting to look a bit cool, I do like the Razor Crest much better but if you look he still made this ship silver, also has some of the scuff yellow in spots like the crest did. So the same with this build, lots of screen grab studying and once done this will look like you grabbed it right out of the screen, this is the focus I had on the clone walker project it looks like it was pulled out of the screen and sat on the table in front of you. So much more to come stay tuned Thanks for looking

excited to see this, I have a banged up one I picked up for $150 yrs ago in storage, was thinking the same thing but thought this fit 1/4 more than 1/6, had no idea it was 1/6 would be great to pair this up with a hot toys figure!

Okay George don't know what happened there but, sorry bout all those George said. Yes eyes still bug me but I got to keep it going and if I had all the eye stuff to do again I wouldn't no way. Okay Guys got kinda busy today but I got distracted after some major cutting. So here is something I was thinking and I might try and do it at least draw it up, and may do some experimenting with the elements to put it all together. Okay just imagine the small dome Mando's seat now if i could make a mech. that would tilt his seat forward then a hatch behind the seat opens and the floor of the droid area would lower with easy access to baby Yoda all this instead of popping the dome off and grabbing baby Yoda out I know this can be done very simple I can see it in me brain. Also will show a pic of the tripod to hold this very large ship up, also trying to keep the weight down here we go Enjoy

Yes a hot toys Mando would look nice in this. The Tripod stand is the best way to display such a big ship and you can post it up in any position Thanks for looking get her out and get started nice project.

It must have been tough to make the decision to cut into the hull. While not one of my favourite SW ships, it is still iconic and rare.

Yes it was hard but its not mine and I am with you on cutting a rare ship but my friend wants it to be Mando's ship so a project for me. He has another in mint condition hanging out in his store. So I guess it wasn't all that hard for him cause he jumped at the project for me to do up. Thanks for looking

Okay RPF Friends, Wow past two days has been a blur, grandboys but lots of time in the shop so almost all the cutting is done, Man I can relay what TAZ was saying. I have split the two half's and flipped the ship over on its top so I could figure out some inside stuff also the mount set up. Also did some boxing on the cannon's, and cut all the hull bracing you see all over in pics. I then got out the old scribe whilest it was flipped and scribed the whole bottom and haven't even started on the bottom. Now in one pic you see a cylinder its made from metal and was concepting the baby Yoda elevator, I might have a plan. cause I didn't want to have a pop off dome. Also I think the shape of the bottom would make a crazy looking star ship well enough of rattling Thanks for all the comments and likes Enjoy
