Hi! I havent posted for a while.

Heres what Im working on atm: The FM 1/72 Slave 1. I will custom mix the colors, based on ref pics, and I will light it.

Its my first FM, and they do make exceptional kits! The only problem I see with this, is that it suffers from the previous Jango version, and have a few details from that in the mold. If you are really trying to get the paint perfect, the included paint scheme is a little simplified and some stuff is incorrect. But overall its a great looking kit, and is cleverly constructed. :salut

Easy to recommend to anyone loving great kits and/or Starwars! I can def see myself do more FM in the future.

Ill post more when I made more progress.


Cheers

That's pretty damn awesome looking. Seeing it in relation to your hand really shows off the small scale really well. WOW. When I got my kits I was surprised by how much detail they were able to add to that small scale. Really insane.

:cheers

Thanks! :cheers

Oh, and to many LOL! Building it is pretty straightforward. Sure some work filling a few seams, but other than that pretty quick.

The paint job however isnt. IMO its the most complicated SW paintjob, so it take some time.

Im doing it to get better at air brushing and of course to relax. Its a perfect hobby for a father of a baby and a toddler. If you get a few minutes, you have the kit ready.

Almot done btw, trying to get the cockpit right. The original studio model interior is pretty sloppy, and Im trying to get the feel of that.

Well, it looks absolutely marvelous. Can't wait to see it finished. If only I could do my FM kits as great as this.

To be honest... they tend to look like shit. I have the gift of spotting even the tiniest things... but when I have to build and paint... all skills are out the window. :banger

Nice trooper.
