    Same goes for the under cockpit if you've added extra lights . . .

    2 TIPS: before you join the 2 main upper and bottom, use a brush to clear all dust into piles carefully
    (if like me you've had them not covered for months before joining) and then carefully use a vacuum to suck up the dust...


    2 Below: Tighten all screws upper and under and if you've used the original screwdriver from issue 1 throughout change it!.
    l for instance used the screwdriver from the X-wing issue (you can get them all over DIY stores tho). l found it worked loads better as the
    old one started to wear.

    This is where l start adding any parts that's left starting off with the 2 Deflector shield projectors, l simple painted Lamp Black oil with the usual method l've mentioned throughout, l stuck the parts together first tho then put the black on and wiped almost as soon as l'd added it.



    From issue 98: Results below . . .

    Back on Page 27 l did tests of the 'splatter' effect, after long thought and as mine nears it's near completion.
    l decided added just a slight touch of it (call it a happy medium).

    lf your going down this path do tests as lve shown and clear the toothbrush lots of paint before flickin :-).
    Below: Matt Black and Matt Orange 85 Humbrol enamels mixed with white spirit thinner.

    Looks great! I am a subscriber to the less is more for display models as well when it comes to the streaks and spatters.

    Definitely, the 'Sculpturing a Galaxy' splatters are far to much & an unusual shot with a bad 70's camera.

    Yea, that definately is not an accurate representation. Half of what you see is film grain not actual splatter.

    Nice !! Really looking forward to these photos of the final job.

    Do you reckon you could also do a video just without commentary, just music or something ?

    Yeah Portaler, l'll do that last, lm thinking of the initial shoot details 1st, then one or two fantasy artworks in space/deserts etc. I've still other ideas in mind like the spaceport gas pumps so still lots to show over the year.

    Hi Darkview, your Falcon is coming together nicely. Can I ask what color you used for the red and grey panels?

    Coming together nicely, red looks a spot on base red, I used Humbrol matt 153 Red... Not to bright & not to dark. I then masked them and added weathering/Dremel scratches etc.. think page 2 & 5 somewhere mention it. I used the TAMIYA weathering kits over the masked dried red patched areas, you can tone it to the studio references etc.

    Thanks, yeah I'm going to tone the red down. What about your grey?

    I figured I'd use Tamiya neutral grey.

    I used Humbrol Matt grey mixed with a tad Matt white if to dark but Tamiya neutral Grey is as good as any...go with what you eye sees is best while checking studio references, as lve said in the past it's the lighting on the original that can deceive so get as many cross references of the original as possible and get a happy medium.
