    Well it's been a busy semester and finally I'm finishing school! I haven't had too much time so I worked on this guy, slowly. This was a ship I saw in episode three of Star Wars and immediately fell in love with its shape and design! Unfortunately, in my opinion, hasbro did a very poor paint app on this. So I picked one up and proceeded on repainting this.

    It is a mix use of Krylon fusion, Testors enamels, and Tamiya acrylic paints in order to bring its true colors out. It's worth mentioning that, even though this ship is quite large,
    I stayed away from airbrushing, and completely hand brush this whole toy. I went for a very metal and weathered look. Completely used
    looking weathered ship. Some references come from these two pictures.

    And after several layers, coats, and dry brushing. Here is the final product.
    I hope you guys enjoy this. I am thinking about letting this ship go. Contact me at jessey_k@Hotmail.com if you're interested, and if you have a chance check out my blog in development 2freshtoys.blogspot.com


    Materials Used:
    -Krylon Fusion
    -Testors Enamels Paints
    -Tamiya Acrylic Paints
    -Gundam Base Stand
    -Future Floor Wax

    Thanks
