Not wishing to put any more pictures of my Y Wing effort in Starbucks thread of his excellent Revell kit build I thought I'd start this thread and answer his question at the same time. I can not praise the Bandai kit enough my only wish is it was bigger. I was asked if I intend to weather it and yes I have started and will busy away at it as time allows. I used a wash of acrylic black and will then highlight areas and put some bare metal scratches on to give it the beat up look. I'm hoping a covering of flat lacquer will take away the plastic look.
