That Star Destroyer looks amazing! Brilliant StarBuck!
Next in line.....Tie Fighter. I think I mentioned that some of the models caused me problems, which I was able to solve, but nevertheless problems.
The Tie Fighter is a class of its own. Most tricky so far if I remember right. Buton the other side a very detailed model.
And the rest of the finalized Star Wars stuff.
As mentioned fun doing, but very little parts. So a tweezer is needed to get good results.
Amazing! I love the "group" shots, very nice. I finished Vader's TIE a while back, just haven't got round to photos But, the cockpit was the most tricky part.
Also for the Tie Fighter the cockpit was the most tricky part, but also the small parts on the connection between cockpit and the wings were challenging.
I have to state that I like these metal models, as they have pretty much detail, and they are some kind of special in their view. Furthermore the assemgling is challanging, what I like. (Sometimes during the building I got frantic if things did not work like it was planned - but I put it aside and on the next day it worked.
Update for Metal Earth Models: beside the classic models the first models which are coloured are out. They are available in easterns shops and for sure more expensive than the uncoloured models.
Nevertheless my plan to colour my models still exists. It is only a question of time..... but now with the new models out, this project will get a higher priority
Wow! I did not know that there were coloured versions available. However, I prefer the metallic look. But it should not be too difficult to paint them yourself.
I already made a test with the colours of Revell, and it worked. I´ve planned to paint at least the r2-d2, but based on too many things to do, I did not start yet. By painting I did not plan to paint the whole figure, to ensure the metallic look - witch makes the models unique - will not disappear.
The paint really makes them look incredible. Excellent craftsmanship!
Maybe you should try transparent blue for R2 so that the metallic shine remains?
I've seen some Nail Polish that might be perfect, and that stuff comes in every shade possible!
Oh Nail Polish......great idea - I will check the portfolio of my wife.
