    Started weathering. Used some weathering powders, a medium gray color to start with the process. I concentrate on areas were dirt would usually concentrate. Looking at reference photos also helps a lot.

    The color can be build up as you desire to get more depth and contrast or to accentuate a dirtier area. More to come.

    Quick question....am I the only one who sometimes stop in the middle of weathering the model and plays with it humming the Star Wars theme and adding my own vocal sounds effects?

    Model is basically done. I always add a few details here and there when adding its base but won't dramatically change from what is seen in the following images:

    I will start with the base next and later an official photoshoot to see if it looks like a real prop or not. Will see!

    I've really enjoyed watching this come together and you have me tempted to try a build up on plastic with no paint myself. Question for you - did you have any problems getting the decals to adhere directly to the plastic? What technique or special measures did you take? I've always believed that decals won't adhere to plastic, but I've challenged myself and wonder where I got this notion and if it isn't dogma.

    Also, what do you do about hiding seams? I'm assuming you used some kind of liquid cement and got a good bond with no gap - i.e. no gap filling required, just sanding?

    Great job, I'm really thinking about going your way when I get to my B wing. (Which is after my TIE Bomber and Y wings, but winter is coming!)

    Cheers,

    K.

    Thanks! regarding the decals they glue just fine over the plastic. No special measures at all. The fitment of these Bandai models is so good you will not need any gap filling. Have you ever build one of these Bandai models? You will be surprised!

    Agreed. Every single Bandai ship kit I have built since they got the license has incredible tolerances that make the usual need for gap filling and alignments totally unnecessary. The ONLY additions I have had to make to a Bandai kit have been extra cockpit details such as pipes, hoses and window closure handles not created for the existing kits.

    Great Job as usual SJ!!

    Thanks for the reply. I'm going to give it a try. Consider yourself inspirational.

    I've got some Y wings in the process of building and the Bandai kits are very impressive. I haven't finished anything yet though. I was well in the model zone when summer hit and I've barely touched one for 4 months, but the bug is coming back now. Seeing your work sure didn't hurt.


    Cheers,

    I'm also still trying to convince myself to this. It will surely save me a lot of paint. And Scarecrow works on his B-Wing surely making me more convince to do so. Great work Scarecrow.

    Scarecrow just to recap on the painting process.

    1. Apply decals directly on plastic.
    2. Apply wash (what wash did you use? Tamiya?).
    3. Apply Acrylic matte clear coat.
    4. Apply weathering using Tamiya weathering master.
    5. Then surely you will apply the final matte clear coat again. Using Vallejo Acrylic or Polyurethane matte coat?

    Is Vallejo Polyurethane a much better choice for your final coat? Since the Polyurethane is more durable and it might adhere better since its already coated with Vallejo acrylic matte coat. What do you think?

    That's more or less the process. Be careful with washes and decals. Wait for decals to be fully dried and cured and work carefully around them If unsure do wash first then decals. In this case the decals were so small that working around them is easy. Also the poly Vallejo clear don't like Bandai plastic but it may work after acrylic has been laid down. Haven't tried it myself.

    Amazing!
    Was gonna save mine for winter but following this build is making my fingers twitch. Granted I know when I hold my finished attempt against pics of yours It'll look like a "Nailed it" pic from Pinterest
