Star Wars: Cloud City Aircar (Retro-SF 1/72)
« on: August 30, 2011, 09:47:13 PM »
I've started that kit yesterday. Few parts (19 and not 21 as announced on the instruction sheet); no drawings for the build but it's really not necessary; but an elegant model that will result in a nice build.

After having washed the parts and removed the flash from the resin, I started the build. To note that the canopies are extremely fragile - After having broken two times those elements, I decided to replace some parts by Evergreen...

Yes, simple kit but well conceived. It's really a fun build. I will try to make a nice paint... For that I have to watch the Episode V once again ;)

Time to come back on the aircar, after some 1/1 work at home...

White primer; correction on putty; re-white primer.

I'va again watched the movie scene, but there is no indication of colours for what concerns the bays. So I've decided to use a "standard" alu...

For the cockpit I will probably use black color, with paintbrush, after having sprayed the orange
