Continuing from my last article, I have been making some slow progress towards my target goal of building a small part of Mos Eisley or Mos Espa, as both places have a similar look.
Adding to my droid collection this week I've painted a silver Protocol Droid and a red R2 unit.. which you can see pictured. I've also started making an R5 unit and power droid that I will show at a later date. Because I want multiples, I will cast them so I can paint up several variations.
"AH DO THAT AGAIN"
Now I know I used this title last time but it's the most fitting for anything related to the Max Reebo band, of which I have finished two new additions. First is Droopy McCool and the second is Rappertunie the Shawda Ubb!
"IT'S A TRAP"
Next up is another vehicle to add to the growing motor pool. This is actually another Revell kit of the TIE Interceptor. The scale isn't 100% but its still close enough for my liking. I need to find some more of these kits (ones that are close in scale.. like a shuttle Tyderium) so will keep looking, fingers crossed.
Having decided that I want my adventures to centre around Dash and his trusty robot LEEBO, I've set myself a very large challenge: build a model of his ship the Outrider including the internal structure, so I can game inside as well. From the picture shown you can see a lot of the internal panels duplicate, so will make up a few simple masters, then cast the amount needed.
The first step will be to layout a base piece, and then work from there. You will also notice that there is a little ship called the Gadfly on the left hand side which I will build as well.
If anyone has any reference pictures of this vehicle it would be very useful.
Last piece today is Diala Passil the `wanna be` Jedi from the Imperial Assault core game (in the game she wields a painted vibro plasteel pole, which she handles almost as proficiently as a `true Jedi` uses a light-sable). The only alteration I did on this one, was replace the light sabre with a coloured clear acrylic rod to give a better effect for the weapon.
Having taken stock of how big a project this is going to be, I need to find some good basic human models that are in the right scale, and will fit into the Star Wars realm with very little work.
If anyone has some suggestions please pop them in to the comments.
Until Next time have fun !
